I had little revolver experience but wanted to have the best example of one when I got my first one. I got the 6-inch model so that I could maximize the potential of the .357 Magnum round for hog hunting. Ruger's reputation for making solid revolvers shows well with the GP100. The cylinder locks up like a vault door, and every moving part is fitted with absolute precision. Shooting double-action, I can easily keep 100 rounds in the black on a six-inch target, from an unsupported isoceles position, at 25 yards with this. The double-action trigger pull is smooth enough to allow me to consistently hit 10-inch plates at 25 yards, one-handed, with either my left or right hand. This is absolutely an amazing revolver! It has helped me put meat in the freezer. I have put about 1000 rounds through it with Fiocchi 142gr FMJ, Remington 125gr SJHP, LAX 158gr FMJ, and the really hot PPU 158gr FMJ ammo, and it is accurate with all of them.
I would have bought this one (layaway....so I could make payments) but due to it being in Utah and to have it shipped to Idaho I would have to pay for it in full, so I had to pass on buying it out right. There's only one left...Comparing it to a Stainless Steel 6" Smith and Wesson (at a other sporting goods store)....I liked the Ruger GP100 way better since it was beefier. Soooo...I'm buying it.
First time out at the range shooting .357 some firemen couple lanes over came and asked what I was shooting. I keep this one by my bed at night. Accurate right out of the box. As someone new to shooting I kept reading online that you should start with a 22LR. I actually think you should start with this 6" tank shooting 38's (recoil is nothing compared to 357) It's amazing! I believe this thing will take a deer down with 357 ammo. I bought this 6 months ago from Jonathan at the Kearns location. I promise you won't regret going with this one as a new a shooter. Now that I've gotten a feel of the 38/357 world I just bought a new Ruger LCR357 from Jason at their new Salt Lake location on 300 W. 2100 S. Should be coming in this week. Will keep you posted in a review under the LCR357 review section:)
The GP100 with the 6" barrel is built to handle the meanest 357 rounds out there. It is heavy and big, but is absolutely amazing at absorbing recoil from hot rounds. Its weight, and the Hogue grips make it very controllable, and its trigger is excellent, breaking very smoothly and precisely at the back. Try this gun with some of the super-hot Armscor 125 gr 357 ammo, and wait for everyone at the range to come over and see what just shook their world. Big flash and really big boom. Very accurate and very sturdy; just an excellent gun.
