    It came down to a couple different .357's, and then a deal I couldn't turn down sealed the deal.

    This thing is a hoot to shoot. And with the .38 sp rounds my young boys can comfortably handle it, too.

    Just want some nice walnut grips.

    Fun! Looks like a nail driver. And if the bullets won't drive nails, it could sure he used as a hammer!

    Good choice. Like Tallinar said, You can always use it as a hammer if it don't drive tacks!

    Carry? Range? :D

    On purchasing the most robust production DA 357 Magnum revolver on the market at this time !!!!

    I`ve tried many grips ,but always go back to the factory panel grips & there`s many peole making panels now !!!

    Nice choice. love my sp101. With that length barrel full power .357rds should be no problem.

    Range for now but also HD, and hunting. I picked up a box of Buffalo Bore 180 gr today. We'll see how those feel at 1400 FPS :)

    I bought my first in April, and my second in May, and my third and fourth last month.... They are addicting to say the least! I have one Ruger, an old style Blackhawk, and it is a great gun. Magnums are addicting too....

    Very nice, shoot the heck out of 'er, I challenge any to ever wear one out.

    And them Hogue monogrips are the way to go for both the GP100 and SuperRedhawk. Most comfortable grips I've ever used for the Ruger DA's.

    Nice looking firearm.

    Don't sell your current grips short - you may find that the nicest looking walnut grips don't provide the same positive feel as the ones you already have. I tried some FANCY checkered walnut grips on a S&W .357 and went to the range. I came home, cleaned the revolver and put the Hogues back on.

    Great looking gun, and good choice for a first revolver. It will certainly provide you a lifetime of fun.

    Badger and Eagle are two popular manufacturers of quality wood grips for the GP100.

    Awesome. I want that exact model, finish and length!

    A great first choice, those revolvers are bulletproof. I say leave the Hogue grips on, they may not look as good at the walnut grips but they're very comfortable to hold and take a lot of the sting out of the magnums.

    Love my Sp101 and .357 magnum in general. There are some really hot/fun loads in .357 magnum that your Ruger will handle better than virtually any other revolver.

    A blued 6" GP-100 was my first handgun. It has been a wonderful gun. I use the 180 grn rounds from Buffalo Bore for deer hunting and they are superb.

    I'll second the idea of the old style factory grips. They are great.

    Thanks for the replies. I am somewhat infatuated with this revolver. I'm a 1911 guy but I am now a wheel gun guy too.

    My down time is spent drooling over revolver auctions contemplating my next one :)
