    Glad to be part of the forum!
    I thought I was always gonna be a Glock guy for life....that is until a friend put his SP101 snubby in my hand....
    I am picking up in the gun community that revolvers for CCW are making a comeback.
    So... I took the leap,bought an SP101 ...and love it!
    I chose the 3 inch barrel since it seemed better balanced than the snubby version. I felt I could shoot it better and seemed to have less recoil...
    Its great at the range....I need a little more time with it since I am so used to Glocks. I am hearing that others like modify with trigger jobs and different grips...
    So....that's why I am here. Looking forward to hearing the experiences of other revolver lovers while I learn to handle my new toy!

    Put some Hogue tamer grips on it and it will make a world of difference in felt recoil. Several here say a trigger job also makes big difference.
    An Intro does wonders for new members. Welcome to the firing line.

    Welcome. I second Tommy's sentiments. I hope you keep us informed about you SP101-as-CCW experience; I don't own one (yet) but do own a S&W Model 10 3", so your info would be relevant.

    The SP101 is a great little wheel gun. Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome from Texas!
    I can tell you first hand that your Glocks and Rugers can coexist quite well in the same gun safe. :) The SP101 is a great gun!
