How about a Ruger SP101? That's what I'd like to have anyway.

Buds was showing a 3" stainless GP100 for 500 (1:00 am 4-29)but it was the only stainless in stock. They must be selling the crap out of them. They had around 10 of them last time I had looked (about a week ago).

I bought my 6" stainless GP100 brand new in January for $467.86 + tax. So far, nothing but happy with that purchase.

Carbon steel will corrode much more easily than stainless steel, and stainless can be made stronger than carbon steel. Stainless steel is also usually heavier than carbon steel, which helps to control recoil when the gun is fired (recoil is not eliminated, only reduced). Stainless steel can also be polished to a "mirror finish", so it doesn't have to be chrome-plated for that "shine". Probably the biggest "plus" to using stainless over carbon steel, though, is the fact that it is far less prone to "crystalization" than carbon steel. When steel "crystalizes", it becomes brittle, and can break at the worst possible times.just try drilling through both of them and see which is a mofo over the other

Just saw where my local hangout has the Ruger LCR priced at $375 plus tax. I don't need one but it sure is tempting at that price...

Do it! Get it! That's a steal for one of those!

What do you guys think I can get. I have been looking and I want a smith because I have had 2 smiths before but all the ones I find I like are double the budget.
4" or 6" GP100. Here's my 4" GP100. Great gun. Fits the bill for everything you've said.

I bought mine used just a few months ago for with in your budget.

S&W 66-4 in .357 - Stag grips



Boy you talk about accurate - it's great -

Here's my 1st 18 shots with it at 25' - 10 touching the black



Believe me - it's the gun, not me

Good luck in your search - shoot several different guns before you buy, they all shoot a little differently.

imho

Got my GP100 off of Gunbroker for $350 including shipping. They say it was used but it looked brand new except for a little residue on the back of the cylinder. Its a great gun and I recommend it to anyone looking for a revolver.
