    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.

    Thanks Havasu.
    We'd be bummed but I've always heard that Ruger's customer service is first rate.

    Welcome to the Forum and to Ruger's. You will get the SP back before you know it. Just call Ruger and they will have it picked up.
    Good Luck.

    Welcome to the forum and be sure you and your wife give your all around experience shooting the guns when you get a chance. I am betting you will be shooting more 38 than 357 out of yours. Is her 38 rated also to shoot 38+P? I have a bunch of boxes of 38 special but only a couple boxes of 357 mag which I just use for CC self defense.

    Thanx Buster for your nice reply. Both are rated +p in .38 and you're right in suggesting we'll be using .38's at the range. Hers will most likely live on her night stand for home defense. She hasn't gotten her CCW permit as of yet. My EDC is a Glock 19 or 26 depending on seasonal requirements. I have a Gunsite Scout which I love but my main interests are military style 'black guns". AR's, Tavor , Scar17 etc. SHTF stuff. Thank you again for your welcome to the forum.

    BTW Does any one know of a pre-drilled tritium front sight for the 101?

    Hey Phideaux:

    Just noticed your location is western Kentucky. Truly love that part of the country. One of my favorite songs is John Prine's "Paradise". It talks about him growing up there. If you haven't heard it, check it out on Youtube.
