:cb2: It's a tank. If you want something that can handle heavy loads, it's the gun for you. And unless you're a cop, you will probably never need more than 2 shots, let alone 5. Most incounters average less than two shots, and that's counting both parties. However, it sure does feel better just knowing you have more!
Unlike other brands, the SP101 has only one screw, and that's in the handle. There is no side plate in the frame. It is one solid piece. You will need a trigger job, however.
The GP100 is a fine gun, but it sure is big. The SP101 is much easier to conceal.
