    GP100 357 VS Blackhawk 357

    I've narrowed it down to these two Models and I have the money for one. Both Models I want in 6" barrel and a Blue finnish. I'll be mostly at the range and plinking but it will also be my Home defence Handgun for now. I aslo like both of these styles. So what is one to do?

    Sorry if this question has been ask before but I can't get High speed internet at home.

    Forced to choose between those two, I'd go with the GP-100. It can be fired in the double-action mode (just pull the trigger, and it cocks AND releases the hammer), which is better for self-defense, but it can also be thumb-cocked for more precise target shooting. I have a 4-inch stainless-steel GP-100, and I'm very happy with it's performance.

    The idea of single or double action wouldn't be that big a deal to me but I to like a swing out cylinder for loading faster. Never know when you might need seven rounds So the GP-100 would be the one for me. I've had them both and they both shot fantastic. If I was only to have one though I'd lean to the GP

    ^^I agree with the above. If it was going to be in a self-defense role, it would be the GP100 for me. Good luck with your search.

    Go with the GP, definitely! Just more options for the money.
