I looked at a S&W 686 today. Then I picked up a SP101 in my hand. Very nice. Besides the obvious weight difference, it just felt better in my average size hand. I like the pinned front sight also. I came home and looked at an XS Big Dot and a few different holsters to carry it. 2.5" barrel is perfect too. I would prefer a 3" or better, but for EDC, I think the 2.5" is sufficent. I found it at the local Gander Mtn. The price was decent compared what I've seen around. So I'm heading up there in the morning. Anyone else have an SP101?
