    Hey everyone. So ive got a little play money coming from my tax return and I want to purchase a new handgun. I really like the Ruger GP100 6" stainless in 357 magnum and I don't own a wheel gun yet. I also like the Ruger sr1911 and I also don't own a 1911. So far I have a Ruger p345, mkIII, lc9, and s&w m&p 15 ....... some advice would be much appreciated and some alternative suggestions as well!

    I agree. I've probably only sold 10 or so over the years but I can only think of two that I did not regret selling.

    I did!! I was young and dumb and getting married and thought I needed some money. 9 years later I had neither her nor the gun. Dont miss her but I sure miss that gun. It was the first gun I sold and the last gun I sold!!! Sorry for highjacking your thread.

    Now that your all teary eyed I will say you can never go wrong with a Ruger revolver and that 1911 is sweet also.

    The SP101 is Ruger's small frame, while the GP100 is Ruger's medium frame. The GP100 holds six rounds. The SP101 holds 5.
