All, As I've been kind of looking for a revolver to shoot every now and then in our IDPA group, I came across a guy on one of the Florida forums who was looking to sell or trade his (this) gun. He was looking for cash or a trade for a .45, other than a 1911. Very unusual. So, as I had a S&W 4516 sitting on the shelf doing absolutely nothing for the last few years, I emailed him and asked if he was interested in an even trade. I sent him the specs and a bunch of photos and he sent me his and we both agreed that this could work. So, a few days later I head up to the Orlando area and in the parking lot of the Gander Mountain store, we met up, checked out both sidearms and made the deal! We both went into Gander to check out what they have and as this is one of the Flagship Gander Mountain stores, they had everything. Huge high tech indoor shooting range that would make any government agency green with envy. I declined the $25 introductory tour and just wandered around like a slack jawed yokel marveling at the spectacular range and equipment available! Anyway, I picked up a very nice Ruger GP-100 w/4" barrel. I had to wait a day to actually get to the range to shoot it because of several previous projects but when I did I was very happy with it. I think this will fit in nicely for my IDPA shooting and as I've just ordered up three holsters for it, at least one of them should work. The photo of the gun is dirty because it just came back from the range after 100 rounds. I even had a bullet left and took a chance at at a shot at 50 yards and hit the "A" section of the target. Even I was surprised. AD Test shots at 11 yards. First six to the body. Next six to the head. I'm ready for IDPA!!
