I like both guns. If I need a heavy-duty .357, I'll grab the SP101. If I want super lightweight .38 w/ a nice trigger pull, I'll grab my S&W 642. The 642 is more practical for me, but I appreciate...

Too many to list, but the one currently on my mind is the Springfield M1A Socom. I could get one now if someone would just pay for new furniture, chain link fence, and a shed. O'well, one day maybe!
