    I have a chance at purchasing a 357 Mag. SS Ruger GP100 3" bl for a very good price. Does anyone carry a GP100 for a concealed weapon or is it too big for this purpose? What holster do you use?

    If you want an inexpensive holster the 3 inch fits well in an Uncle Mike’s Sidekick #15.
    It’s not the smallest revolver in the world for carry , some of the Ruger SP-101 series are smaller . But if you get the GP-100 it's a very rugged well made gun.

    It should conceal nicely with an IWB holster. I have carried a Smith 686 w/4" barrel from time to time. It's the same size as a GP141 (same as what you are looking at except barrel is 1" longer). The Uncle Mike's is inexpensive, but does the job. I also like the Don Hume PCCH.

    Mine is quite a hefty lump on my hip, but it would conceal undera coat.

    Winter Conceal maybe. Certainly is durrable and reliable. But, also heavier...

    If I can wear a cover garment, (sweatshirt, fleece vest) I carry my Ruger KGP-141. When I can't wear a cover garment, I carry my SP-101.

    Yeah it's a little heavy. On the other hand I'm carrying a S&W 625 3" right now. It is less noticable in an OWB holster, but conceals better in an IWB holster. I use Blade Tech IWB to carry my GP, but a JIT slide holster for the 625.

    That's what I'm afraid of kahr carrier. The GP100 357 2" bl would be a bit heavy and I just sold my Ruger P94 yesterday because it was bulky and too heavy for a carry gun. I don't know but maybe the SP101 is better suited for a carry gun.

    SP-101 is definitely a better choice

    for concealed carry, unless you're a really big guy. Another very attractive option is a S&W 640 in .357. Many belt carry options, but it's also perfect in a Milt Sparks or Kramer pocket holster.

    You might want to check eBay for holsters. I've picked up some new Uncle Mikes holsters from small shops using eBay to sell their goods.

    Keep them holster suggestions coming. The GP100 3" Stainless is on order. I want to carry this particular gun concealed so I will need some help on holser selection. The Hume IWB holsters look really good, but not sure about comfort.

    For you guys that carry a GP100. What is the most comfortable holster for carry purposes?

    I use a nylon Uncle Mikes belt holster right now. Do want to get a nice leather belt holster.

    I prefer my 4" wheels on my left side, butt forward.
    Can reach with either hand, speedy left-handed draw, comfy whilst sitting/driving, element of (some) suprise.................

    Well my SS GP100 3" Bl arrived yesterday. The gun was bought from my FFL dealer through KY Imports. I was a little hestitant about buying something used that I couldn't put my hands on first but was very impressed to see that the gun was very well taken care of with very little holster wear and tight all around. Even came with Hogue grips. Now all I need is a good holster.
