    Finally took the new LCR .22 to the range.

    I finally had a chance to take the new LCR .22 out to shoot yesterday. I like it. I'm not real accurate with it. Good enough that at close range I could hit someone with it. I can see more practice is needed. :) It did fine with the bulk pack ammo, and with some CB shorts even. I tried some snake/bird shot .22 in it and of course as expected the empties don't want to eject after they've opened/expanded inside the cylinder. Took a little rap of the ejector rod, downward on the bumper of my SUV to pop the casings out. I won't be shooting anymore of those in there. But had to give it a try.

    As far as accuracy, I guess it's as accurate as the shooter and the rounds that you put through it. I got varying results based on how fast or slow I fired, how steady I was able to hold it on target, and how far away the target was.

    The trigger is just as good as the other LCR's. I used to have a S&W 317 2" barrel .22 and it was a way overpriced piece of junk. Even normal high velocity bulk pack ammo would seize up the cylinder. I don't know why, but you could fire a couple cylinders through it, then the cylinder would not rotate and would be hard to eject from the frame. Maybe it was made with the tolerances too tight.

    I was looking for a nice light snub nose .22 that is fun to plink with and maybe carry for a snake gun with fishing or hiking. I think the LCR .22 will do nicely.

    Congrats on your new revolver! It does sound like a fun to shoot. I've recently been vacillating between the LCR .22 and the SR22.

    For plinking and just fun target shooting, I would probably go for the SP101 in .22, just so you have the option of firing it in single-action mode.

    For .22 carry (no caliber war, please) then the LCR would be the way to go.

    Have fun with it!

    My .22 revolver is an ancient Iver Johnson "Sealed Target 8." You have to remove the whole cylinder to load/unload. The sights stink, but I got it cheap, and it sure is fun!
