The Ruger LCR .357 and recoil with .357 magnum loads
I have heard and read all over the internet about how a 17 oz weapon is too hard to handle with .357 rounds. How it hurts or the recoil is too much for followup shots. I am here to tell you that unless you have serious arthritis, or some health issues or are already sensitive to recoil due to small frame or lack of arm\wrist strength you will have zero issue with this design. It is easy to control, quick on follow up shots, accurate and a joy to shoot during my range sessions. I am performing a long term test of mine, and recently picked up a new one for carry as I push this one to the limit with magnum rounds to see how far I can go before frame stretch out of spec or failure. So far at 1200 rounds it passed MPI and frame tolerances.

I have over 600 magnum rounds through it now. Bottom line is this revolver rocks, best DAO revolver trigger known to man without hundreds of dollars of gunsmith work; recoil is dampened by the grip design; and pure shoot ability for a deep cover weapon. I will never go back to s&w again. it has even taken up more carry time than my highly touted G29SF :yup:
