Found this one yesterday at a gunshow in central FL. I think it was the only small pistol there not priced in the stratosphere. I even saw a Colt detective with holster wear with $1000 on it!!!
A 649-5, slightly used, for $480.00. I think I'm done buying guns for a while!
Now to find some 357 ammo......
Thankfully it will eat my 38+P that I have on hand for now.

I finally saw a Ruger LCR yesterday and I was very impressed. It actually looked better up close than in the advertising and the test report pictures that I have seen.
Redbird, funny, I just saw my first LCR last week and I had the opposite impression. I liked it less. I was impressed with the trigger actions, that's a real plus but I didn't care for the way they machined off so much of they cylinder. It may be that it only looks so odd to me because it's so different than any other cylinder I've seen. I liked the sights and the grip was good (this one had crimson trace grips) but the weight may be too light for some. I suspect it'll be quite a snap to shoot with anything other than plain .38's.
I suspect it might be one of those guns that could grow on me. It reminds me of how I felt when I first looked at a Colt New Agent. I was bothered by the trench sites but now that I've owned one and shot it a lot, I actually love the trench.
Go figure. The one I saw was VERY expensive too and I think an example of price gouging. They were asking over $700 and maybe even $750 but don't hold me to that...

in 24 hours, i'm going to a part of this club.
i can't wait....
For $792 I can think of quite a few models of snub revolvers from several manufacturers, both new and discontinued that I'd prefer to own over the LCR.

My new snubbie.....
And for all you lock snobs
This thread has been going on so long that I have added two new snubbies to my collection, both S&W J frames. Here is a picture of both of them together, and separately.
