I am a huge fan of Ruger products and while I love the GP100 and SP101 series DA revolvers, there are drawbacks to them for CCW unless one is of a larger frame.
They are heavy and more suited to open carry. I have owned up to six SPs at any given time and they are fine compact revolvers but .357 Magnum full house loads from so short a barrel and light a frame can be punishing, especially with the sharp edges of the triggers they bear (I Dremeled mine smooth and round). There are finer alternatives to them for CCW, especially S&W compact revolvers which are lighter and have far better triggers out of the box. That said, .357 Mag from a snubby is always punishing.
