Sharp recoil doesn't really bother me that much. I think I just haven't gotten to that point yet. When I shoot my .45, and my .357 back when I had it, I WAS able to say "I can see where this will be very uncomfortable in a few years..." But I'm not there yet.

Yeah I think its probably more about how the grip fits my hand on that model. I grip high on it and the grip is kind of square in between my thumb and pointer finger. After 50 rounds I had serious bruising and swelling. I've shot 45 long colt out of similar sized guns without issue and running .357 through the patrolman was a dream. That gun is fantastic.

Buy the GP100. You won't find a better stronger 357 on the market for the money. Even if you paid more for another brand I doubt it would be any better. The six inch barrel will give optimum velocity with a 357.

Nothing wrong with a Ruger revolver. I personally think a S&W is a better gun though. Plenty of different models to choose from. Especially if you're going to be shooting 38s.

I love my Gp100. It was also my first handgun, only had it about 10 months and ive got to have atleast 2000+ rounds through it. Great range gun for the price. A little bulky for consealed carry but it can be done.

I've got the 4" stainless GP100. Damn good gun, accurate and tough.

You won't be disappointed.

I have one and love shooting GP 100 6". Lately, been firing the HSM 38 Special 158 gr semi wad cutters. Today, pulled out some 38 Special Winchester Special P 125 gr, only fired a few rounds. Mostly, semi-wad cutters.

Just one issue, the wife is not amused with me taking the Ruger GP100 to the range without her.
