The Ruger SP-101 was purchased by Jesse Pinkman in order to protect himself from Tuco Salamanca, but since Jesse didn't know how to use the gun properly, Walter White took it away from him and hid it inside a nappy box in his house (""). Walter later gets back home to hide the weapon inside a vent, preventing Skyler White or Walter Jr. from finding it ("").
When Spooge and Spooge's Lady rip off one of Jesse's dealers, Skinny Pete, Walter gives the gun back to Jesse, telling him to "handle it" ("").
