    If you're gong to shoot predominately .357 magnums, I'd go with a full-lug GP100; if you're going to be shooting predominately .38 Special/.38 Special +P or lighter .357 Magnums, the MC would be a good choice in my opinion. But hey, it'll be your gun, so choose whichever feels right and best for you. Frankly, probably the biggest decision criteria would be choosing the variant with the sights/sight picture that you prefer, at least for me.

    Ruger CS will make things right as necessary, or most corrective/cleanup work can be provided by a good local gunsmith if needed or desired.

    Best, Jon

    The last several GP100s and SP101s our gun shop has received from Ruger have been pretty good (at least as good as it can be without firing it), I hope I get to be as fortunate when I get mine. I'm leaning towards the standard 4" model, because yes I will be shooting a lot of Magnums.

I think my M22-4 weighs less than my 4" M19 due to .45 caliber holes in the cylinder and that tapered barrel. Also, the 28 weighs less when you're in the woods. Or maybe it just feels right.
    I could carry it in a shoulder holster hiking just fine. I actually have an El Paso Saddlery shoulder holster for a 4" N frame somewhere.
    In the P-F basket of deplorables.
