    It looks good so what is it? I can't read the model from the picture.

    Hmmmm...Curtis needs to tell us. I thought it was an Alaskan but they don't make that in hammerless.

    Sorry for not putting it in the original post.

    It's the SP-101, chambered in .357 Magnum. The Glock 36 was my option for CC and was very uncomfortable for me. This isn't, and I love Ruger revolvers. I took off the Ruger grips and put on the Hogues; they seem to be a little thinner, although longer.

    I would like to get an Alaskan eventually, in .454 Casull maybe.:what:

    Oh man, I've been wanting one of those, the 3" version with a hammer. Yours looks amazing, how's the DA pull?

    Got one of these (hammer version), carried it routinely, not too heavy, comfortable, andlike it a lot. (I put aHogue grip on mine, too.) Butnow I carry aM&P40c with a round chambered, a little lighter, 2x the rounds, easy reload.

    It could use some improvement but I'm sure after some play time with it it will improve. Out of the box, it's not as good as my Redhawk's DA pull. I had a 3 inch version SP-101 like you describe, with around 400 rounds through it, and it's trigger was better.

    If y'all think it looks good just as it is, you should check out what Gemini Customs does with them. It's very tempting to send it off.

    I liked the Glock 36, but it wasn't comfortable when concealing and I only really ever conceal out of an absolute necessity to do so. I thought I could live with it, but after a while it got old and I have a Glock 30 so I justified it's sale.

    I can't even tell the SP-101 is there, and I just plain like revolvers better, not only for aesthetics but on average I shoot a little better with them as well. That's not to say you won't see me OCing the Glock 30 or a 1911 though.

    Reloads get easy after plenty of practice.

    As for the reloads, I should have mentioned that I'm left-handed
