    I've been wanting another 6" 357 for a little while since I baby the one I currently have and I needed one that could be more of a woods gun. I found this.

    I don't think the guy owned a cleaning kit but it doesn't appear to have been shot too much. I got a box of 357 ammo with it and for what I paid I couldn't let it go.

    I'm definately hitting the range this weekend with two new guns.

    I would love to but unfortunately I've got an all date with a small block Ford that's destined for an early Bronco.

    I've actually never shot a GP but my SP101 is awesome.

    I had a 6" GP100 and it was a great wheel gun. Made .38's feel like .22's and .357's feel like .38's and super easy to take apart.

    Goju, I'll get my wife to take that picture just for you. How cool would a cross draw for the SP and a strong side holster for the GP be?

    I've been playing with it tonight and while it is considerably heavier then my model 19 I really like the feel. It balances well and with added weight it should make shooting some of the hot 357s I've got loaded up seem really tame.

    Is your wife going to take another butt shot for all of us to look atl

    If I can shoot .357's magnums out of a GP100, anyone can.
