Range Report - 1st Wiley Clapp GP100 Shoot

Picked up my new Wiley Clapp GP100 .357 Magnum revolver yesterday and made the time to go to the range tonight to put 100 rounds through it. To be honest, I have never shot a double action full calibre revolver before in my life so I don't have any other revolver to really compare this to (only shot SA .22 when I was a kid). First two photos show a little bit of soot after firing fifty of .38 SP and .357 Mag each.





The first target is eighteen Remington UMC .38 SP (130 gr.) at fifteen yards. All in double action at a pretty good rate of speed. My first shot was the low flyer at the bottom left. After that, I seemed to migrate back towards the center.



The second target is twenty four Freedom Munitions .357 Mag (158 gr.) at fifteen yards. These ones were put down range as fast as I could pull the trigger. I am amazed at how easy this gun is to keep on target.



I also took my SR9C out for fifty rounds tonight, but I'm pretty sure I have a new favorite shooter in the GP100. Love it! After shooting the .357 Magum, I think my expensive hobby just became my really expensive hobby.

Well my understanding is that the migration would not be needed after the first two. But nice work, none the less.

That is one seriously good looking gun. I'm curious what the barrel length is? I have the "stock" GP100 with 3" barrel and yours looks even shorter. I sure would love to have some nice adjustable sights on mine. Your gun is just plain awesome!

I've been considering one of the exclusive 5" GP100's but the are hard to find and then I discovered the S&W 627 V-Comp 5". It doesn't have the Ruger toughness but it's a much better shooter since it's a Performance Center gun and I already have the 629 V-Comp which is the nicest revolver I've ever shot.

Very nice GP100. That is one nice shooter. And good shooting by you, too.

The GP100 simply cannot be beat. I have other revolvers that I love to shoot, but I always come home to my GP100.
