Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave1965 Excellent gun
I have owned my GP100 for almost 2 years now. This is hands down my favorite hand gun out of the 5 I own. This gun is built like a tank, consistently fires a nice tight group, and is quick and easy to clean after a day at the range. The recoil is not bad at all, I taught my 11 year old daughter how to shoot with this gun and she didn't have any problem controling it. I would recommend it to anyone that wants a larger caliber revolver.

went to the bass pro in the dolphin mall and purchased this weapon and took it to the firing range the next day. worked like a pro! if you are more use to semi automatics a few speedloaders will work well for you! the ease of cleaning was one of the major advantages to it also

Yes the GP 100 is very accurate, just don't use junk ammo. Every firearm, handgun or rifle, shoots a little different with different ammo from different manufacturers. Try different loads and bullet weights until you find the one that best suits your particular gun. Be advised accuracy will generally be better with premium ammunition, so if you're just plicking once you find the best round for your gun in premium ammo, you can save $10/box by going with lower quality, just likely won't have the accuracy of the better grade ammo.
