...and a fine one you did pick! My first handgun of any kind was a GP100 4" when they first came out. That puppy will last you a lifetime...and then some.

Many years ago my wife's uncle gave me his RG14, with a crappy rep no doubt. But it never had a jam or misfire. Was my first handgun. Sadly I've sold or traded all my revolvers in the rush for semi autos, but my first purchase next Spring is going to be a Ruger revolver of some type.

I've always been a revolver fan but, just recently (in the past 1.5 years) got into DA's with the purchase of a Smith Mod31 .32Long that was traded to fund a Smith 632 Pro Series .327 that's with me almost everyday. Then came a GP100 in .327 that I plan to hunt with, next will be a .45 of some sort. You really "NEED" a SA or 2, you can't beat an old model Vaquero or Blackhawk in .45Colt.

I hear you. I was recently afflicted by the revolver disease and it spreading. Not o lay are they fun to master but ere is a great sense of accomplishment when you can out shoot you friends with an old wheel gun.

Older revolvers are some of the best and unlike most guns at a gun show can be had for reasonable prices. I spend most of my time looking for the older per lock smiths..

Enjoy it and let it be fruitful and multiply...

Good choice. My first decent revolver was a 6" GP100 but it was too long for me so I sold it. I missed the action and feel so I got a 4" GP100 but never put in the time to master a double action trigger and traded it. I have since gotten another 4" GP100 and it isn't going anywhere!

Actually, now I think about it I got two of those GP100's from rantingredneck IIRC..... So dude, you need to find me a 3" stainless in .357 for carry please.

I am not only a revolver fan, but a Ruger fan. My next revolver purchase will be a GP-100. I am currently looking to get a Ruger 1911 (the only auto that they make I like), and I have a number of Ruger revolvers currently. My preferred caliber is .45Colt, but I have an SP-101 (3 inch barrel) in .357 magnum that I really like.

My primarily used revolver is the type in my pic to the left, a Ruger Alaskan (.454/.45 Colt). I use it in IDPA & USPSA competition, loaded with. 45Colt of course.

Congrats on your gp100, They are addicting, I started with a taurus model 85 for the night stand. I now have a ruger ss Blackhawk 357, a ruger single six 22lr/22mag. And just put a ruger Blackhawk 45lc/45acp. On layaway. Oh yeah have 2 naa minis as well. I can't seem to help my self. GF thinks I need professional help. Next up probably a 1873 remake. Been eyeballing the uberti cattleman.

Anyone who knows me will tell you how I am about my Rugers.

Someday, I hope to have as many as Snal...er... BEFORE the boat accident.... L ol l

My first revolver was a Security Six, and shortly after I got it (25 yrs ago) Ruger introduced the GP100. After all this time, I finally got one in '10 and it is my anchor gun (THE never-get-rid-of).

The heft, the weight, the size (i'm not a little feller by any means) is AWESOME!

I have a decent collection of semis and a few revolvers, but the GP100 is by far my fave.

Now to get some 38/357 dies, some mag primers, another couple pounds of W231....

Lol :p
