Hello I'm a new member. I'm from Texas. I owned a Glock 17 and a Browning Buckmark .22LR. But the recent trip to the High Caliber gun show in the weekend made me fall in love with the Ruger SP101 and the GP100. Those 2 guns (Big brother and little brother) are a beauty. And that is what that brought me to this forum. Now I know what I want to add to my collection.

Question for your guys, do you buy used or new? Because I'm thinking of buying the GP100 used, but it's always a safe bet to buy it new.

Welcome to the fourm from CA! Several of my revolvers I've bought used. It's not too hard to figure out if the gun has been properly maintained. Older blued guns may have lost some of their luster but if they lock up tight and the barrel has been maintained they can be great shooters. If the price is right then go for it.

Welcome to the forum from southern Arizona!
If a used GP or SP locks up tight and appears to have been well taken care of, I would feel pretty safe in buying if price was right. If near the new gun price, I'd pass on it and go with new. Whatever you choose, hope you will enjoy one or both of these Rugers!
