Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Tell him to get it, its a great piece, I sold mine to a friend, he loves it to. The accuracy is great, with the 3 inch barrel we were killing the crap out of targets at 50 yards. I had a Houge grip for it, and I recommend that to, bit more comfortable than the factory.
Don't you ever stand for that sort of thing. Someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill 'em right back.

Love mine. Carried it for years prior to the 1911. Full magnums are a handful with the short barrel though.

A cousin has one. He loves it. Can't add much more, though.

I have a 2" and a 3" SP101. They are great revolvers. I have the Hogue grip on both of them. The factory grip isn't bad, I just prefer the Hogue grip. It's a little longer, but not by much and the finger grooves help in getting a good shooting grip quickly without adjusting. The guns have some weight to them, so I carry them inside or outside the waist band. Too big and heavy for pocket carry, at least for me. They are very well built and the weight helps tame recoil well. If I could keep just one, it would be the 3". It's easier to shoot accurately at longer distances. Muzzle flip is less and it's not much harder to conceal than the 2".

Best thing I discovered...had to replace cylinder stops on light S&W's. My SP101 is built tough...take a look on how they lock up. It's off-set, like a three point stance for a Green Bay lineman! Incredible strength in the lock up vs all in-line lock up.

Seems everything ruger I have is built to last and not wear out.

I love my ruger revolvers and rifles.

Prefer 1911 automatic handguns and shotguns remington / mossy / winchester in 12 gauge.
