If they're built with the same quality as my Model 44, it's a fine piece.

That ones not mine. Same model. I need the rear sight and am thinking about putting those grips on.

At any rate, even though the front sight post is wider than the target there was little excuse to ever miss a point on the 500. Once you get a good position and sling set up, the prone is rock solid and as long as you can read the wind it's no issue.

I also went thru MCRD San Diego/ "Red Mike" Edson range and remember that we got a small bump in scoring because the range was metric and the rifle's sight elevation increments are in yards (or vice versa).
Yeah, I don't remember firing from the 100 either, but maybe we did and it was just easy enough I don't remember?

Thanks for the input guys, that's pretty much what I thought. It would be my lead spitter, already have some pistols and am inheriting gramps bolt when he's done with it. This one would just be for fun.

This little 66 is so much fun to shoot.
I am down to two semis and two revolvers.

The only reason why I don't carry a revolver most of the time is because I did not have one small enough ... till now.

3 inch sp101 is coming home today.

Straight trade for my gp100.

The value of taking pics is what got me the trade.

I'll post them up when I get the revolver.

One of my relatives was the Ruger rep in Argentina.

He had the 2 inch sp101 in his slacks and no one could tell.

It's a lot of pocket gun ... hottest round out of there was moving at 1200 fps ... out of a 3 inch!

It's original. That revolver's actually seen quite a bit of silhouette shooting competition over the years.

The quality and lustre of the bluing on some of the older S&W's is astounding.

I really like the SP101, don't own one myself but one of my good friends/shooting-buddies has a couple of them, and I've recommended them to a number of people who were looking for a first center-fire handgun for CCW.

That said, I'm not sure I'd want one as a pocket-carry gun. I've used a S&W 640 (stainless steel J-frame 2" 357 hammerless) for that purpose, and I suspect the rugged SP weighs more, and it practically de-pantsed me. Plus I think any revolver with an exposed hammer is prone to snag on the draw unless the hammer is bobbed. But in a good inside-the-waistband holster on a sturdy belt, it'd make a great carry gun. For pocket carry I think the best choices out there are the Scandium or "Airweight" hammerless J-frame Smiths, and the Ruger LCR......speaking strictly revolvers here.

One must be of Latin descent to not be de=pantsed by the mighty SP101.....I guess.
