Very nice! My carry gun is my SP101 in .357 Magnum, but mine is the 3" barrel one. Fits great in a purse. :)

Thanks folks. Wendy the 3" is hard to find here. I always wanted one. I was looking at the Badger boot grips, they make some nice wood grips for the Sp101's.
It is a great carry firearm. I like the weight and the grips. I think Ruger scored well on those. I think the wood would less comfortable when shooting hot .38 Special or .357 Magnum loads.

I carry mine with either Buffalo Bore .38 Special 158 grain LSWHP when I can find them or more often with either .38 Special Winchester SXT or Remington Golden Sabre .357 mid range HPs. All three shoot great in my revolvers.

Jamn,

One of my good friends showed up to shoot with the DAO version of your revolver. I was very surprised at what a fine DA pull it had straight-out-of-the-box - very easy to place shots precisely!

The grips are well designed for my hands and made it easy to handle any load. S&W could learn from these ergonomics.

The only fuss I had with the revolver was with all the sharp edges. If you shoot it enough, one of the edges is gonna nick you or wear a blister. I didn't say anything to him about that, but when I saw him 6 months later, he had polished off all those sharp edges. You couldn't tell that it hadn't been done at the Ruger factory.

I agree about the sharp edges, especially around the ejector rod shroud and rear sight. In winter when I can dress for on body carry I can sometimes tell it even through a shirt. During warmer days I have one of those concealment/holster purses that makes it a lot more comfortable.
