    Excellent choice. A real workhorse of a revolver.

    [ I'm afraid the Sister will remain forever separate! She will probably remain in my family for decades to come!! Great gun for anything you might need it from 20 yards or so in!! Carry or home Defense! The versatility and durability is what sold me!! I've done my homework on this gun-:)

    Just need to update the front sight now :) I bought mine a couple months ago and had an experience at the range that bothered me. Dark corner, furthest lane to the left. And I couldn't pick up the black front ramp on the black target.

    I just got my meprolight night sight a week ago. Now I'm having problems finding a gunsmith to install it for me. I don't believe it's too difficult but I don't have the tools, skills, or time required to replace it myself. One gun range said he didn't have the right vice to secure it and didn't want to risk ruining the gun.

    I need to look a little harder...

    I'd say you made a good choice. It'll be a good companion for years to come.

    First thing I did when I got mine was put a Big Dot XS sight on it and a Hogue mono grip. My middle name is "Murphy" and I easily managed to install the sight.

    Congrats on a fine revolver.

    A little red nail polish took care of my front sight not to mention the Crimson Trace grip. The 110 grain Winchester mags make a nice mid range load. More than a +P but less than a 125 grain mag.

    That looks familiar. Put a Houge monogrip on it and you will find full house loads much more manageable.

    Ahh the sp101 the toughest commercial snub in existence. It is my favorite snub to shoot at the range. Great hiking gun also.

    Got lucky and found one at local gun store!! Probably paid more than a fair price!! But they are hard to find new in these parts!! I hear Ruger has a 2 million backlog on gun orders!! Lol Obama continues to be the worlds best private gun salesman!

    I own a couple of semis and they are probably better in most situations because of the large capacity!! But there is something about owning a nice revolver!! II view my semis as guns I own!! My revolver is my personal gun!! Can anyone relate??
