    What's Hot and What's Not

    I was told that some normal law abiding folks who belong to a certain organization were put on a "no buy list" for firearms by the government. So of course I had to go to Cabelas to try it out. It was just a nasty rumor and we are all still friends, but now I'm faced with another problem. I have to but another holster. What a life!! The real eye opener was seeing what was available. I actually went to several stores and found that the Glock 17's and 19's and the XD's in 9mm were all but gone. I found one CZ Rami and that was it. There were lots of S&W M&P's and a bunch of used ones that have been traded which leads me to believe that there was some buyers remorse there. Plenty of SIGs probably because of the price. Plenty of Berettas and Ruger centerfires and Taurus's. You could have Kimbers in most any flavor too. An eye opening experience for sure. Oh yes, I forgot to mention what I bought. I got a wonderful little Ruger SP-101 in 357 mag, with 4 inch barrel, adjustable fiberoptic sights and wood inlaid grips. Nice little "kit gun" as we used to call them.

    We used to reserve "kit gun" for .22s and .22 magnums only.

    I am considering the SP101 in 3" or the S & W 60-15 in 3" with the hi-viz sights. Have you shot yours yet? With magnums? Let me know what your experience is.

    The SP101 is heavier (which is both good and bad) and cheaper (which is good). I've always been a S & W guy, so switching sides would represent a trauma.

    The SP-101 is a good revolver and much more rugged than the S&W's. The S&W's are lighter and tend to be a bit more refined. I've had many of both and they do kick a bit. I'll modify it to accept moon clips for quick reloads. We already have a 3 inch that takes moon clips. It is suitably accurate and you won't wear it out anytime soon for sure. Get one with the adjustable rear sight (it adjusts for windage only on my 3 inch) because many are not well regulated.
