point of order:

it's only illegal if you get caught, or ratted out.

THIS is where my comment about high leo membership at some ranges comes in. one may think they're safe taking their so-called assault rifle to the private range they shoot at....till a leo member shows up to shoot, and sees it. chances are good they'll dime ya out in a hearbeat.

I had three P2Ps.  Were part of my proactive “in case Murphy gets elected plan”. Last month picked up my Glock 43.  Last week picked up my Ruger Mark IV Hunter, and in 3.5 weeks I plan to purchase a Ruger GP100 357 magnum.  These are in addition to what I already own.    After using the third and final permit, I will be done. I am nearing retirement so also wanted to get these purchases behind me while I am still gainfully employed.

Still need to decide whether to go with the 4” or 6” GP100; but am leaning toward the 6”.

Go with the six unless you plan CCW.  Had my Security Six re-barreled from 4 to 6 years ago, much better revo after that.

Get a Ruger Service or Security Six better made and can be found for less money. 4" if you plan on carrying. Otherwise go for the 6".

I can tell you that the gp100 match champion is an excellent revolver with a 4.2 inch barrel. A little pricey but has a really comfortable grip and the best stock trigger of any gp100 I’ve tried yet and the reduced underlug makes it a fast pointer. Also looks very nice to me. Kind of like a modern speed or security six. I have the adjustable rear sight on mine but if you are playing holster games or looking for a carry piece, you may like the Novak rear. 

Not really a target gun per se, too much light between the front fiber post and the rear notch but there are options to fix that. I sort of wish the just used the normal front sight though instead of the dovetailed one. More readily available front sight options in the standard front for the gp100... 

Just a thought .

Thanks for the feedback regarding my selection of a GP100. Am still leaning toward the 6”. It’s extra 5oz of weight will also help tame the felt recoil.

My ogam waiting period is not done for another 3 weeks or so. So I have another week or two to finalize my decision.

Update:  last evening received an email from Davidson’s that they received a shipment of model #1740 GP100 in 5” barrel length. It is exclusive to them. I had given up hope that the timing and availability would work out for me. I jumped right on it this morning and ordered it.

In all fairness to LEO's, I'm pretty sure they're obligated not to turn a blind eye to crimes committed in their presence even when they're off duty.  I would expect them to "dime me out" if I snorted a line of coke in front of them too.
