    I finally broke down and bought a NIB GP100. I have been looking for a good deal on a used one but could never find a deal good enough to pull the trigger on. I was on Bud's website yesterday afternoon and the wife walks into the Den and asks me what I was doing. I showed her the picture of the GP100 SS 6" on Bud's she said is that a good price. I proceded to show her prices at other dealers and on Gunbroker (Buds kicked butt on the price) and said I want to get one of these eventually. She says why don't you go ahead and get it. Needless to say I never clicked on a Add to Cart button so fast, entered the CC info as fast as I could and hit the checkout button. I know it will cost me down the road but WTH I got what I wanted. :D

    $522 + 3% (used CC) free shipping and it will be another $26.50 for the FFL transfer. Just got a email from Bud's the gun shipped today will arrive Wednesday. One of these days I will get around to getting my CCW so I can avoid the 3 day "Cooling off Period):rolleyes: I won't get to take it home until next Monday :(

    I'm from st. louis where they'd make you a week to take the gun home.

    seems to me if I wanted to shoot someone I wouldn't go buy a new gun, I'd use one of the 20 sitting at home.

    I've since moved to tn however where there is no waiting period

    I have the same gun, but in blue. Took it to the range this morning with some medium-strength handloaded 158 LSWCs. It's a tack-driver enough that I can regularly hit clay pigeons at 50 yards - shooting SA. DA..well...if practice makes perfect, I have a lot of practicing to do. :p

    Good choice. Enjoy it...

    Congratulations! When I get a GP100 (one day) it'll be the stainless w/ a 6" barrel, full underlug and the rubber grip. :)

    Sounds like a pretty good deal. I've got the 4" stainless. It has been a great shooter. You are going to enjoy it.

    Just checked the tracking # it is out for delivery not bad considering I ordered it Sunday. First purchase from Bud's (won't be my last). I have a lot of 38spl that I reloaded for a S&W model 642 airweight that we have. I want to load up some 357 rounds to push thru this baby. I am going to go with a recomendation and use 6.5g of W231 with some Berry's 125g FN plated bullets. :)

    If you want a real show, with those same Berry bullets, put 19gr of H110 under them. You are supposed to use small pistol magnum primers with H110, but I didn't know that when I first started reloading and WOW, what a show! The slow burning H110 needs that magnum ignition, or you will have unburnt powder igniting after it leaves barrel for a LARGE flame down range.:what: Fun though. It made every shooter at the indoor range stop and notice.:scrutiny:

    good luck with your new GP I have the 4" s/s model.
    I originally wanted a 6" but they seemed to be back-ordered forever and I got the 4" as soon as available. mine's a shooter with cast slugs over Red Dot at around 1000 fps.

    Congrats! I have a 6" Stainless w/ half lug and if I could
    only have one handgun the GP100 would be it.
    Powerful, accurate and reliable.

    If you are sick on Tuesday, let it be from the consistent stare at bullet holes into targets; from the pervasive smell of gunpowder; from the excessive BOOM audible through even the most ample of hearing protection; and from the constant grin you are sure to endure.
