    One of these followed me home yesterday evening so what choice did I have but to take it out and let it play some today. I must say I am impressed with both the gun and caliber. Very well made piece of machinery, 100% reliable and just "felt right" in the hand. I put about 150 rounds through it all .327, could not find any other flavors of .32 in the limited amount of time I had. Accuracy was as expected from a 3"bbl. Only negative was it had an extremely loud, sharp bark, but looking at how hot that little cartrige is and the short bbl and it should not have really been much of a surprise. Quite pleased with it and I think it will find a place in my carry rotation.

    Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic and no pics from range as my good camera's battery was exhausted, which I didnt find out til we were on the range.

    Definately going to get dies for it as $30 bucks a box is a bit much I think.

    Great little gun.

    You can usually get 327 brass from Freedom Arms.

    I usually load light with cast and trail boss for plinking. The more I mess with 32's the more I like them.

    I almost bought one

    but the price of ammo made me get the .357 instead.
    I can find 38 white box for 9 bucks at some places plus it shoots full load .357 without much pain.
    The only thing I wish was that I SHOULD have got a 3 inch barrel instead of the 2.25...other than that its the best revolver for the money you can buy.

    Really doesn't matter if you reload. Everything is about the same to shoot.

    Accuracy at defense distances is not going to be a big deal.

    I trade ya. :D

    I've had my .327 Ruger SP 101 for several months now, and carry it continually at home. (Illinois doesn't have concealed carry- yet!) I've fired it with .32 S&W long for practice, and put some Federal Hydro-Shocks thru it- they WILL get yer attention! Accuracy is good (it's better than I can shoot). The trigger pull was pretty rough, but a few hundred dry fires helped that out, as did some TriFlon when I cleaned it. I think I'll put Wolfe springs in it to see what happens to the DA trigger pull. I'm glad I bought it; I've always had great results with Ruger firearms.

    I had my local gunsmith/friend do the trigger on my SP101 in 327. I've pretty much decided I like it better than my J-frame Smiths.
