I'm thinking about buying one and want to know if it's worth it or not? I currently own a 3" SP101 and while I like shooting 38 spl in it, it hurts my hand too much with 357's, even with the Hogue grip. I recently sold a 4" GP100 because it was just too big and heavy for my taste. However it was much more pleasant shooting magnum loads through it than the SP. Is the 3" GP at least as accurate as the 3" SP? How is the recoil and muzzle flash compared to the SP or 4" GP? Does the 3" GP balance in the hand and point as naturally as the SP? I thought the 4" GP was a little nose heavy and tended to be pointing down when I raised it up to eye level but the 3" SP sights line up perfectly for me. If you had to choose between the 3" SP and the 3" GP for HD and target shooting only, since I can't carry where I live, which would you choose? I would like to see some pictures of your 3" GP's if possible? Comparison pictures of the 3" GP and 3" SP would really be helpful. Thanks.
