I got in a heated discussion about Ruger GP-100s. My friend called them a poor man's gun (S&W fan). I said "No, a rich man's gun because you have to be wealthy to afford all the ammo you will shoot." I've had my GP-100 for over 10 years and have spent way more on ammo than I paid for it. It still works and looks like new. Try that with a S&W.

I love mine too, and it gets smoother every time I shoot it. I wrote down a guy's number on the bulletin board at the range who had 1,000 rounds of .38 special for sale for $100. I don't know what brand it is, but it'd be nice to stock up on some. I don't shoot as much as rtmpgh does though!

I kept sneering at my son's GP100 as a big clunky ugly thing until he forced me to shoot it. I bought one a week later. While I haven't met many S&W's I didn't like, I think I like the GP100 a bit better.

I like my GP.........and my SP.........and my P90.......and my P345's..........and my......well you get the point. :D.

Seriously though my GP100 is a fine shooter and one tough revolver. Should outlive me and give my kids many years of service.

well ... chalk up another 250 rounds thru the GP ... this time it was only
.38 special ...my buddy just purchased an M&P .40 and he twisted my
arm to goto the range [ yeah right :) twisted really hard ]

this gun does get better with each round thru it ... I swear there
was no recoil this time out ...

rtmpgh, You have to put some ammo in it next time. That's why there was no recoil.

The GP100 Lament

I got a 6 inch, a 4 inch, a 3 inch (another?)
Bought three 101's 'cause each needed a brother.
An Alaskan, a RedHawk -- will it never end.
These Ruger revolvers are driving me 'round the bend!

Own three GPs and an SP. All of them shoot great. I won't even look at an S&W anymore.

Just my .02,
LeonCarr

I like my GP, but I don't shoot it much. They sure are nice guns.
