hello folks! very excited to show off my latest CCW piece, I went to the funshops today just to browse and what not, son on my 2nd shop that i visited,I saw this LCR and i thought it was in 38spcl., but I looked closer and what I saw really caught me by surprise, there it is the new RUGER LCR in 357mag!,as soon as I touched it I knew i will get it,so made a deal with my Kahr cw40 that i was carrying today and long story short,I now carry this 357mag!!I love the caliber,and the weight is a plus too,a little heavier than the 38spcl.I have not shot it yet maybe tomorrow i can report how it shoots, needles to say I'm a happy camper!!the tag price was 429.99..

Love my LCR .38. Like the .357, but I like the lightness of the .38 better. Guess recoil on the .357 would be lighter while shooting .38's through it.

Nice 357,I want one really bad.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
Congrats on the new addition. I am looking forward to you range report. I fired a LCR in .38 spl using 158 gr. +p's and for me it was a bear. I do have a Ruger SP 101 in .357 that tames the recoil and abuse of my hand so I do have the .357 snubbie option.

very nice. You'll have to give us a range report and let us know how it handles.
I want this gun!! But I have to wait for it to be tested and approved in my state.
Beautiful new LCR, love all the pics. I am interested to know how manageable the recoil is!
That is one mean looking little wheelgun.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
Sweet gun, and good price too. Ruger is a great company, good quality products and good service as well. The benefit of the .357 model is you can still shoot .38s out of it if you like with the option of .357s. I'd be very interested in how it shoots and feels with .357s compared to 38s out of it as well. Give us a good range report. Thanks for the post, and congrats!!!

My steel framed Ruger Security Six is a handful with full power 357 mag. I imagine a plastic one would be even more entertaining.

Nice! Looking forward to a range report!
