Awesome responses thank you all. Im going to check out the SP101 3 inch for her and I think I am going to look at the GP 100 in 4 inch.
She plans to carry the SP and I want the GP for the range and night stand.
Im going to pass on the Rossi. Thank you all for the honest replies.
We might look at some of the smiths mentioned above. They do have a hefty price but they will always retain their value so thats worth considering.
As for trying them at the range there is really one place here that has them and they are so swamped its like weeks wait to get into even shoot!
Im dying to try both the sp and gp from what everyone has said we are going to love them both. I dont think I have heard one person bad mouth either ruger.
