    I thought I read in an earlier post about want ads were OK for this forum. If I was mistaken, please delete this thread.

    I'm looking for a Ruger SP101 in .357 w/a 2-1/4" bbl (bobbed OR spurred hammer OK). Extras like grips/holsters are welcomed. I'm trying to get a revolver package that I like, and the airweights are NOT for me. I've tried. Please PM me w/details and pics if possible. I am in Pierce County, but am mobile and will travel a decent distance for the right deal. I am looking for a face-to-face deal with a fellow WA CPL holder. Thanks!

    I'd bet I'd beat you to the deal if we were racing, though!

    Hi G20,

    Try http://www.outdoorstrader.com if you don't have any luck on here.

    It is a website I started because craigslist doesn't allow firearms ads. It has really grown in the last few months.

    I have an SP101 and really like it. The GP100 is very nice, too, but a bit larger.

    Well,I guess I'm about as patient as Rosie O'Donnell at a pizza buffet. I was waiting for a nice used one to come along, but after about 36 hours, I was sick of waiting. So, today I bought a new SP101 today to add to the stable. It's the 2-1/4" bbl version with the DAO bobbed hammer. Going to be great as a CC gun.

    I didn't realize it, but it looks like these were offered in 9mm at one time. If I ever spot one of those for sale, it is mine!

    A 9mm revolver? That would be odd.

    Hah, turns out Taurus still makes one. At the request of LE for cross-carry without changing caliber. Those clips would be annoying though.

    They also make a revolver in 45ACP.

    I've been trying to find one of those 9mm SP101's for a while. How long would that last? A 25oz. all-stainless 5-shot revolver????And the ability for LEO's to carry the same ammo in their back-up revolver as in their service pistols was EXACTLY the idea behind these guns. Smith, Taurus and Ruger all have produced small, 5-shot, 9mm revolvers that never really caught on. When they do come up for sale on the market, they will usually fetch about an extra 50% more than the same gun in the "standard" caliber.
