I am, but that's a different story. I will say that you can't go wrong with a GP100. I am always on the look out for a 3in GP100.

I vote for the Ruger. Here is my 6" GP 100



I like the heft of this revolver, if you ever run out of ammoe it makes a great club

I forgot how LONG the 6in looks! That was my first GP100, but mine was blued. Man, I could clover leaf 6 at 25 yards with that thing!

Wow I think I love revolvers.
There is just something about it that screams "old fashioned deadliness".

considering some of the worlds most accurate handguns are revolvers that is a correct and accurate (NPI) statement! I could hit the 300m gong every time (for the most part) with my 6in GP100. The gong was 8in in dia.

4 inch is better for carry and at a 100 meters is all going to be the same.

Supported on the hood of his car.

Not for an occoasional shooter, the six would be worlds better at all ranges, till they got tired of holding such a heavyass gun!
