I got on the mailing list too, just remember Ruger is a openly traded company on the stock exchanges so they have restrictions as to what they can reveal.

Re: Ok Guys. J-Frame or SP 101?

I bought a 3" SP101 a few years ago and for a shooter it's top shelf. The problem is the 3" barrel makes it less than handy as a pocket gun. On the other hand my 2" S&W 640 is great and almost as heavy. Neither is comfortable to shoot with full power .357 loads.
