Before buying, you'll want to look carefully at the rules for equipment (holsters, speedloader carriers etc) for IDPA. In this case, 2 speedloaders on strong side in front of holster, the third behind midline on the weak side-so no triple. Won
my division today, but then I was the only wheelgunner (yes, WC GP). Beat 6 semi-auto's.

Shot my WC GP 100 yesterday in our club's IDPA match, came in first in my division, but what I was most pleased and surprised by is I was in the top 4 most accurate with only 3 down for the whole match. Was proud of my effort yesterday, as I am "melding" well with my GP.

Did have a problem, upon cleaning it, something happened and my cylinder will not close, and it rotates in only 1 direction w/ out binding. Posted about that in the maint section, got some replies, but think it needs to go back to the mother ship for fix.

Maybe an excuse to get another as a backup?.....

The GP100 is one very accurate revolver with only a 3 inch barrel.

My GP came back from the mothership right as rain, all within 11 calendar days of me dropping it off at FedEx. Can't beat that at all.

Looking forward to shooting it again at my next match in a couple of weeks.

Shot my GP at today's IDPA match, it did not disappoint. If I did my job, it did its. Very pleased with this gun. I came in first in the revolver division- and came in the top half of all shooters. Love it when a wheelgunner outshoots a bottom feeder :-)

Going to another match tomorrow. So far, the home office fixed the previously reported problem. Will provide an update on tomorrow's match.

Had another fun day w/ my GP 100. It did its job well. Was a warm day for us here in Western WA, and that w/ my SOing the squad, didn't do my best. Still had a fun day.

Am really enjoying this gun

On the WC GPs, you might want to consider replacing the full-size grips they come with with the Ruger Compact grips, available from www.shopruger.com; they're much more size-proportonate and concealable, and require no sacrifice in control. They're what Ruger originally used as the OEM grips for their fixed-sighted GP100s; I prefer them on my full-size 4" GP100 as well.

Best, Jon
