Hello to all. Just got our first Rugers. SP101's. A 2 1/4 in .38 for the lady and a 3" in .357 for me. Unfortunately, the .38 is on it's way back to the mothership. I didn't discover that the cylinder doesn't lock up when spun to the right at the store. My bad. The 3" is fine. We plan on doing springs and Houge grips on them both. Really appreciated the discussions on spring weights. Thanks to all.
