I'm thinking about getting a second SP101 3" or GP 100 6". I have one of each and am thinking I'd like a pair of one or the other. Which would you rather have a pair of and why?

I personally would rather have a 4 inch GP, but of the two you list, the GP is just a better, smoother gun, IMHO. I like the SP, but it's trigger sucks compared to the GP. I guess it really depends on what you want the gun for.

My SP trigger was nasty when I first got it so at night when I was watching TV I would sit and dry fire it. I did that for two evenings and it smoother out so that it is decent now. I'm with Gunman on the 4" GP but given the two choices I would get the 6" GP.

i'm going with the flow and say a 4" gp 100 as well. if that is not an option, then the 6" gp as i'd keep one with issue sights and scope the other for hunting or steel games..............

lol! My thoughts exactly. I want a pair of 4" GPs, but I already have one SP101 and one 6" GP. If I go with the 4" GP I'll have to get 2. I just want a matching set of DA revolvers. No particular reason. Except I'm weird. :?

I have the sp101 with a three inch barrel. I don't have a gp100 yet. The only reason I could see to have a pair of either of those guns is to carry both concealed, because the fastest reload possible (unless you are Jerry Miculek) is grabbing a second gun. In that case, I vote for the sp, because I could envision carrying the two of those. Carrying a pair of six inch gp100's concealed makes my back and sides hurt just thinking about it.

Actually I just want a matching set of double action revolvers. I have a matching set of single actions. I want a matching set of semi's too. The Taurus PT 1911. I have one already. :mrgreen:

Okay then, I get it. You should take the others advice and get a pair of both. Both great guns, they must be even better in pairs.

I'm sure that eventually I will have a pair of both. I have no self control and love to buy guns. :D

The 5" barrels are great I think. Best of both worlds. The target grey is great too. I saw one online somewhere and really liked the look. :cool:

You had one? You should have kept it. The GP100, in my opinion, is one of the best revolvers out there. Maybe the best. :D
