I am thinking about one for occasional CCW carry. I have a Sig P227 but sometimes it is just to big. I am looking at something I can throw in a coat pocket etc. I have a GP100 I like for woods carry but to big.

I know there are lighter ones but the weight of the SP is part of what I like since I would carry 357mag ammo not 38. Anyone have any experience with one?

Okie,

You're still going with a fairly "heavy" piece for pocket pistol with the base weight of the SP101 considering the market of light revolvers out there in the LCR or S&W Airweight

The grip is a bit small if you have bigger hands.

Trigger pull is fairly heavy in DAO

5-round cylinder in .357

Recoil is manageable although not something I spend all day at the range with.

At the end of the day, it depends on what the application is. I've had the piece forever, it does what I want it to do effectively. No complaints. Good, solid piece.

R/10

The quality of Ruger and their warranty is great,

But, the S&W J frames are so much easier to tune.

Can't go wrong with S&W for that application, IMO.

I have a SP101 and it's big and heavy. I'll echo what RT10Echo (ha) said about the gun. I think it'd be just as easy to carry the P227 as the SP101.

I've also got the S&W 340PD. LINK (http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product4_750001_750051_764939_-1_757768_757767_757751_ProductDisplayErrorView_Y) It's by far a better carry gun. It is a blast to shoot with full .357 rounds? - nope but in the moment, I don't think you'll notice or care. Practice with hot .38+P isn't too bad.

I appreciate the feedback. I am thinking now of getting a Sig SP2022. I got one for Mrs Okie and i like it well. It holds 15 rounds of 9mm, is accurate, light and reliable.

The new Walther debuted at Shot looks really nice.

Very slim at one-inch wide, the Walther PPS M2 in 9mm is also extremely lightweight at 21.1 ounces when empty. It is 6.3-inches long and a mere 4.4-inches high with the shortest magazine in place.

Accurate, comfortable and easy to conceal … three key criteria for daily carry that the PPS M2 has in spades. Details like rounded contours aid snag-free draw.

Chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W, there’s a smooth, light 6.1 pound trigger pull. The grip has a non-slip surface. The push-button magazine release is designed to be more intuitive than the PPS and there are three magazine options: six, seven and eight-round.

A law enforcement version, the PPS M2 9mm LE Edition, will come equipped with phosphoric sights and three magazines.

Both editions will become available early 2016 with the .40 S&W available in the Spring.

I had one and sold to try something else and am actually sorry I sold it. I will probably pick up another if I find one locally on the used market.

I found it to be just as accurate as my P226.
