Wanted a quality small framed double/single action revolver for a carry weapon. The Ruger SP101 3\" in 38/357 fits the bill to a T for me. Compact, yet built like a tank as a lot of Rugers are. Fit and finish is very nice. Cylinder lock up is crisp and tight. Double action trigger isn\'t bad, but I will probably change the spring and polish everything up a bit. Single trigger is nice for my feel. I don\'t own any S/W products so I can\'t compare. First time at the range I tried both .38 and .357 ammo ( own standard loads) Shooting 38s in this gun really a lot of fun. Recoil is comfortable and surprisingly, I was hitting 1-1/2\" groups at 21\' right off the bat. That said, shooting .357s is a bit of a different story ( at least for me) Yes, the Ruger will handle the loads without blinking, but my hand won\'t. I\'m not particularly recoil sensitive but I found it a bit uncomfortable after a few rounds. I\'ll try it again, but I plan to try some Ps as well as an alternative. I have other guns that I can use for .357 if need be. This is a nice piece for carry. It even fits in the pockets of some of my looser fitting pants ( not so much with jeans). Seemed to take a long time to get delivery. Eight days, but the money left my account the next day after order. Im not sure how these guys seem to get their order in 3-4 days. Maybe they live across the street from the warehouse?

I purchased this gun from Buds in 2014. The Ruger SP101 is my favorite revolver, plenty of power and conceals nicely under a t-shirt inside my belt slide. As for Buds, what a great experience. The E process, the staff, the shipping, all A1. I highly recommend these guys. Thanks.

Could not be more pleased with this gun. Already have the 2.25 in. and 4.2 in. models. This 3 in. version will serve as an "all around" weapon that can be used as a CCW as well as a general purpose field carry weapon. Ruger quality and "feel" is evident. Have had some past concerns with the SP101 trigger & hammer being stiff and gritty, but this gun's trigger is perfect. If frequently used with 357mags, Hogue grips will be much kinder on your hands. Ruger revolvers and Buds Gun Shop are an unbeatable combination!

Hi there Bud\'s Team!! Just picked up my new Ruger SP-101 at Pioneer Pawn here in Mesa, AZ & am so very happy with my new revolver! After removing it from Ruger\'s case (with an engine hoist), I was astonished at the empty weight of this what a beautiful piece of craftsmanship this revolver is! I can\'t say enough bout ya\'lls customer\'s reps & especially Courtney who was extremely helpful on a Sunday... to split my payment between my checking acct. & credit card!! (Hope you guys are paying her weekend differential!!) From an EASY online selection & payment process from Bud\'s, & Ruger\'s quality firearms, how could I go wrong?? LOL I truly enjoyed the whole buying experience from you guys, order verification, payment receipt, tracking number,encryption computer protected stuff, etc., etc...all I had to do was wait in anticipation!! So very glad I chose Bud\'s & Ruger for my hard earned dollars. Now I can go hiking & camping without worrying bout two or four legged critters ruining my trip. Thank you guys!!! Bear

I like this revolver much more than my S&W 357 model 686. The recoil with the same loads is very similar the to 686 and the SP 101 is a lot easier to handle and carry. Buds is very nice to deal with. They were a little slow to get it out the door but once they did it moved very fast and they have a very good system to keep you advised of your order status.

This is my first revolver and even though I do not have much knowledge or experience with revolvers I am very impressed with this one. It is exactly what I was looking for. If you have bigger hands you may want to look at the GP100 or replace the grips of the SP101. It has great fixed sight accuracy and smooth trigger pull for both double and single action. I might paint the front sight with white nail polish or look into other sight options but the stock sight is sufficient to start. I bought this for a semi concealed woods gun and I think it will serve that purpose admirably.
