    Looks like an interesting peice to me. Time will tell since its the first polly revolver coming out. I bet recoil is fun though!

    What the advantage of an LCR vs a Smith and Wesson J-frame?

    I saw it too. Looks pretty neat and I am interested in it. I just wonder about the polymer side of it and how it will handle or if its even needed.

    Difference with S&W? Price point, I'm sure. The LCR frame will be cheaper material, and easier to put in the final shape to keep manufacturing cost down.

    I think they are ugly a sin.

    Plus with Ruger's rep with recalls lately I think I'll stick with the tried and true J-frame.

    Saw and handled them at the SHOT show, not impressed. Much as I LIKE Ruger products, this is one I'll pass on. Only one of a about 6 on display was actually in fully functional condition. Sure they were handled a lot, but I did not care for it. I stick with my J frame.

    No Thank You...

    I'll give it a few years to work out the problems...there are always problems.

    I think waiting at least a year to let Ruger work out the kinks is a good idea. No sense in becoming an unpaid research and development field tester for Ruger.
    God bless our troops!

    I'll pass on the LCR (Little Crappy Revolver). Ruger can't get a copy of the P3AT (LCP) right how they gonna pull off a polymer framed revolver? How much you want to bet it want be recalled?

    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    I have seen one. Much prefer the S&W snubbies and even the Taurus more so then the LCR (its butt ugly). For those who are thinking of getting one I think I would hold off a few months until they have been out there on the range and see how they do in practice. See if any problems show up. S&W has had a line of snubbies that are tried and true for years and I can't see a reason to jump into something just because it is new.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    like my fellow DC'ers say, wait and let them work it out, I'm sure they have to have bug in them and also remember , the lighter the pistol the more it will kick
