At one time or another, I've had quite a few .357's, & still have several. By far, my favorites have been Rugers ! I currently have the Blackhawks in 4⅝" & 6½", & the GP's in 4" & 6", & much prefer the longer tubes ! I love the 6" GP in stainless, even though it may be a problem for a person of smaller stature to carry. But @ 6' 1" & 300 Lbs., I don't have that problem. Heck, . . . . . years ago, In Winter weather, I have even carried my 8⅜" 657 S&W, in a modified shoulder rig !
The 6" GP100 is in my opinion, one of the best .357's ever made !!!
