Anyone interested in traded a 4in gp100 for a 6 inch stainless gp100. The 6 inch is in excellent condition, prefer stainless but will consider blue. Will send more pictures if interested. https://imgur.com/a/4s9Hrtm]

I really like the GP100 as a field gun. Kind of heavy(especially the 6" full underlug) but hangs nicely on the belt while walking around. Back in 2009/2010 I spent a lot of time working on an older widow's farm where cougar tracks had been seen and helping her neighbor who had actually seen the cat. I switched my "chore gun" from a 22/45 to the GP100 but never saw the cat.

They are nice guns for sure.

I had a few of the Security Series guns when the GP came out. Never bothered to try them. And even when a friend had one,, I'd shoot them,, and they were fine but not "necessary" to me. Then the Match Champion came out and the grips fit my hands so nicely, and the 4" bbl balanced quite well.
I got my 1st one. Then I found a deal on a second one,, in 6",, then along came the 10mm,,, and I had to get one of those too. The 10mm is now used in USPSA competition.
'Nuff said.

I bought a GP-100 with a 4 inch barrel back in the mid 80’s. Shot fine out to 100 yds, I qualified with a 95% as a Deputy Sheriff. It was heavy on the belt, so I started carrying it in a vertical shoulder holster. That was the cats meow. As time went on, I transitioned to a 9mm, then a .45, and the GP was left at home more and more. One day, I was in dire need of cash and sold it. I now have an SP-101 with a 3 inch barrel. It carries nicely, but isn’t as accurate as the GP. Yes I regret having sold the GP.

We've all been there. :) You can own more than one revolver you know, time to go GP100 shopping.

Oh those are nice! A good GP is hard to beat. I sold my .327 GP a while back and sometimes wish I didn’t.
