Ruger GP100 Revolver - Stainless
i have never owned a pistol until this one. I have shot pistols in the military and of friends and relatives. I never had a good feel with any of them. I like big bore guns and decided to try a pistol. I did my research and headed to Bass Pro. The salesman was outstanding. I purchased the pistol and went home. I loaded the pistol and fired it from 25 yards. I put the first round within 2 inches of the bulls eye. I am now looking at getting a Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter 44 Magnum. I will be getting it from Bass Pro.

A very functional, dependable revolver. Not as smooth or refined as a Smith or Colt, but a good value for the money. Double action is a bit of a challenge, but single action isn't too bad at all. Accuracy was a pleasant surprise to be honest. Yep, I'm not a huge Ruger fan. If you're going to use the thing, this is a good candidate since it will handle .357s all day...not a gun safe queen.

Like an old Friend
I have owned my GP100 since1989. It has been a
constant sidearm. No matter the weather or conditions
this has been one of the best pistols I have ever owned. Hunting,Fishing,Home protection,Law Enforcement,my old friend has never failed me.
However my old friend was recently stolen from my truck. I will be replacing it with another. Just like the one I had with the confidence it will serve me as well as the last one. Lord forbid someone uses you for evil.
Farewell old friend wherever you may be.

Solid Working Revolver
After much research this was my first purchase. The large frame makes it easy for my wife to manage recoil. She shoots .38 rounds since she has small hands/wrists and can shoot 50 bullets comfortably in one session. I adjusted the sights at my first range visit and can easily hit silhouettes out to 20 yards. I have put over 600 rounds through it and have had NO PROBLEMS. 4 stars instead of 5 because the standard sights are fairly "large", I don't like how wide the rear sight is. But like I said, I am still extremely accurate with this gun. It is a beefy-solid-tough revolver.
