It was my first gun. I like it a lot. That gun is "all business" and I love the simplicity and look of a revolver. Mine is a 6" barrel to ease the recoil a little on the .357 magnum round. She is a great gun and I trust my life with that gun. If I ever need to defend myself at home, that revolver will be what I reach for. I like the clean look of the stainless steel.
The GP 100 is my "business" gun.
The Mark II is my "fun" gun
and the Sig P238 is my "personal defense" gun.
Now, if you ask JonM, he is not a fan of the GP100. He shot mine and he liked it 'okay' but I think his brother had one years ago that Jon was not impressed with. Jon liked mine better. I think it is a great shooter, built like a tank, never gives me any trouble and could knock a bad guy down if she had to and I did my part.
I highly recommend a GP100 as a classic revolver and all around great gun. Mine will be with me forever and then with my kids when I am no longer here to shoot it.
