Congrats. I've never owned one, my full sized revolvers are S&W, but I don't shy from Ruger; two SP101s and a MKII and MKIII. But one of these days I'm going to get my first GP100 also. Yours sure gives me that old itch that needs to be scratched

My favorite wheelie, congrats. The 4" is by far my favorite, I had the 6" but out was a little unwieldy for me. Have to say that I prefer the old style wood and rubber grips though, was never a fan of the all rubber. The may be a tad more comfortable, but the looks turn me off. Old school, I guess. 🤠

I got my first but not last GP100 about a month ago and am really enjoying it, great gun, and accurate. I have the 3" bbl version. The grips had to go tho.

Looks like you also painted the front sight?

Nice grips

Old eyes, the painted front sight helps.

Yup- I've done the same on my M64 and M15 with intregal front sights, though I prefer FO if they can be had.

Again, nice looking gun

Congratulations on the GP100. Fiber optic front sights are very reasonable priced and made a great addition for me.

I love the GP100. I've often thought about selling my Security Six and getting another GP100, but can't quite make myself do it.
