Greetings from Olympia, WA. I'm actually a rifle guy but I remember my very first revolver years ago...think it was called a Police Service Six. It was a nice .357. My only revolver at present is a 642 which is my pocket weapon. Anyway, I am thinking about purchasing a .357 mag GP100 three inch barrel...use it as my carry weapon and retire my 45 auto. So....think I'll pick the brains of the Ruger Veterans on here...love all the info and experience.
