the Ruger GP100 is a fine revolver and yes there are better pistols, but you would probably pay more to find the difference. just recently i put one in layaway for my wife, 4" stainless steel model with the rubber Hogue type grips. my wife has been wanting another 357 revolver for a while and for the past several months i have been looking at this one and last weekend i finally went ahead and put it in layaway for her anniverisary present.
other good choices in revolvers would be Smith & Wesson, Charter Arms use to be good, not for sure now, might do some checking on them. Rossi might be worth checking out also.
