Revolvers have definitely declined in popularity. But not all of us have lost our love of owning and shooting them. I decided to post this up here instead of on the gun forum. These are my Ruger GP100's in the Wiley Clapp limited edition that was done by Talo. Both have a matte finish, a satin stainless and a Hawkeye blued (matte black). They are built on Ruger's L-frame which is their workhorse frame in .357. These are high cycle/round count pistols. Both are fitted with Novak low mount rear sights. The stainless has a fiber optic front mount and the black has a more traditional brass bead. The guns have nicely "melted" contours for ease of draw and holstering. And despite their mid-sized 3" barrels still weigh in at 37 oz. They're heavy. My holster is a George Lawrence custom. I traded another member (whose name escapes me) for it. The saddle mark would date it from the 70's or early 80's. Speed loaders and speed strips for more firepower. Speed loader/strip is an oxymoron. There is nothing fast about them. I have trained to develop some rudimentary skill with these. Truth be told, I better get the job done with the first six rounds or I am a dead man by either beast or bad guy. Beautiful details on these pistols like the wood inlaid grips. These guns are a blast to shoot. Their weight makes them manageable for even smaller women to comfortably handle. My daughter is 120 lbs and loves shooting these pistols. They are fairly accurate by my standards (21 foot range distances or self defense proximity). Full loads definitely get everyone's attention on the range. .38 spl +P loads are great through them combining stopping power and accuracy. Needless to say I like them because I bought a set. Let's see what some of you have.
