    I think I registered with RugerTalk way back when, but I've not been active. I am an old guy now. I have a wife and a Rottweiler. Both bite me. I am a Glock fan of many years, but also have a couple SA 1911s in 9mm.

    I am contemplating the purchase of my only revolver. It will be a Ruger in .357.

    Welcome to the forum. I have the LCR 357 and the GP100 match Champion .357. I like both and especially liked for the smooth triggers and built tank tough. The LCR is daily CC.
    New open carry law in Texas after 1-1 2016 for people with CHL might just see carrying the GP100 more often.

    I'm in the Cypress area Buster. I have been carrying concealed since Moses and I sojourned in the dessert. I am kind of ambivalent about open carry. I'm not sure I see an upside to others knowing I am armed. I will probably remain discreet.

    Glad you are here, Willie. The GP100MC has several lovable attributes, one of them being that it is a very controllable .357. I too am concerned about open carry in "civilized" society, mostly the Unauthorized Grab factor. A loose shirt, or tuxedo jacket mitigates that concern well enough for me.

    [I've worn a tuxedo jacket on one occasion long ago, so that's a semi-educated guess. I know a barn coat will work.]

    Welcome from Eastern Iowa!

    The GP-100 is a great wheel gun.

    Be safe,

    es, I ordered a G100 with 3 inch barrel last Saturday. It has not shipped yet but hopefully, when the Christmas rush is over, it will be shipped. I can't wait.
