Just got back from the range. It was the first time I shot my three day old Ruger LCR. I put 100 rounds of wad cutters down range. I have to say, this gun is amazing! The recoil, while not non-existent, is not terrible. The trigger is very smooth and extremely easy to find the break point (almost like shooting single action). The sight radius is terrific. I was able to keep a 2.5" group at 35'. I shot a S&W 642 a week or so ago and I can honestly say, the Ruger beats it hands down in every aspect (and I'm a die hard S&W guy).
