Size is a minor point. Even a bad 1911 trigger is worlds better than a GP100 trigger. Not to mention much faster reloads. Though the GP does have reliability on its side.

Not that this situation is the reason for the design.... The indoor range I like to use has a plexiglass "wall" that faces the counter area of the store. All of the store employees are armed and ccw trained. Most are former military / leo's. It is my guess that should a person decide to go nutso on the firing line like you mentioned that the counter folks would then put the shooter down.

I certainly hope that they never have to confirm my theory.

They aren't here, they are a bunch of 20 somethings probably related to the owner who all think they know everything in the world about guns after their training class for the range.

Personally, I never felt out gunned when I carried the Python 2.5in full of bad ass silvertips and a speed loader full of these elk killer handloads I have. If you need to reload a six shooter in a gunfight, you probably are going to end up bloody, or dead anyway.

I've been really tempted by the LCR lately, but I don't know whether I'd get the 38 or the 357. Tales of the SP101 trigger scare me now.

Just an attest that when I fired off the first one, and believe me, I have shot some HOT .357, I looked at the GP100 I shot it out of and said DAMN! It literally felt like I shot off a hot .44mag. They were loaded up to the highest specs using a load specifically as hot as a .357mag rifle could shoot.
