Sorry Chris but I can't agree with you. The SP and the GP are different enough to make for very fun and very interesting gun ownership. Like a lot of guys here I have several GPs and SPs and I like them all for their different barrel lengths, different sights, different grips, some for hunting sidearm, some for CCW, some are range toys, etc. By your philosophy you should own only one firearm type per caliber. Boy does that suck the fun out of it for me.Understandable from a practical or survivalist standpoint, but it doesn't make for fun and interesting gun ownership.
You're certainly entitled to your opinion and if you want to limit yourself that's OK. But I'm always on the hunt for a good buy on a GP or an SP.
The OP said he preferred revolvers and he asked for opinions on the SP101 from those who have them..... My opinion is "They're great!!"
Badger grips, Wolff springs, XS sights..... Fun and interesting? You betcha!
