I finally got my new Ruger SP101 3" .38/.357 to the range. I was shooting solely .38 special rounds for the gun's first range debut (I am not a huge fan of .357). I have to say that I was very impressed with the gun! This is a fixed sight model, so there is always the fear that the sight will simply be off by way of elevation, or worse, windage. No worries there! Here is a (terrible cellphone) picture of the first target shot that I fired from the gun at 8.5 yards: This was the best group of the day, also at 8.5 yards shooting single action: The double action trigger is a pretty stiff pull, but doable. The trigger is crisp and like all Ruger double action triggers, it is stagy, which I like. I may give the Wolff Spring Kit a try, or I may not. In any case I am extremely pleased with the gun. My copy is beautifully made and the sights are perfectly aligned. Mechanically it is put together like a watch.
