My dad recently purchased an SP101 4.2" .357 for protection in the woods. I think he should have chosen a GP100 in either a 4" or 6" so he could have more heft, and that extra round. He is having some trouble with accuracy- partly because he is in his 70's and isn't as steady as he used to be- but I'm gonna blame part of it on the weight. Sp101s are fairly light and could be hard to control the recoil of magnum loads. He shot the mags through it because that's what he will carry in the gun. Do you guys like any particular aftermarket grips that could help with the recoil? My question: do you think he should have picked a gp100??
