    Well I was in Houston yesterday and stopped by a gunstore I had never seen before. I was wandering through when there in the case was a SP-101 with a 3" barrel. I had been looking for such a gun since my wife adopted my 2" hammerless version of the SP-101 as her own. I always liked to carry the 2" to the place we have in the country. Now with the 3", I can get a bit more velocity from the round and a bit longer sight radius. Paid $400.00 new in box so I was pretty happy. I plan to dehorn it and change to a good set of wood grips and carry it concealed from time to time. This is my 5th Ruger revolver:

    Others include:
    SP-101 hammerless DAO
    Stainless Redhawk in .357mag 5.5" barrel
    Stainless Redhawk in .41mag 5.5" barrel
    Stainless Redhawk in .41mag 7.5" barrel and 2X Leupold Scope

    I agree, I am an all Ruger fan. In my eyes they build quality arms at affordable prices, unlike some other manufacturers. You got a good buy at $400, it is a keeper. SP101s are a solid wheelgun, and fun to shoot to boot.

    By co-inky-dink yesterday I went shooting with my visiting kids and my daughters squeeze brought a Ruger in .30 cal SA that he had just been gifted.

    What a ball. What a sweet pistol. The recoil was soft and that round is hot. My daughter (95 lbs soaking wet) thought it was the best thing since ice-cream.

    Gots to get me one.
