    Post Your LCR Please!

    My needs are for a suitable second gun for ccw, and
    a hideout gun for keeping readily around me in the
    house, should I not be able to reach my CZs.


    I usually don't like revolvers, but really can't find a small auto that
    I like.

    My mind is dead set against a .22 for power, a .380 for
    ammo supply, and that leaves a .32.

    A caliber that I've never shot before, and the Guardian
    pistols that I like in that caliber seem to have a spotty
    rep.

    The same can be said for the Walther PPK in .32 ala
    S&W that don't seem to be for sale anywhere, or
    are now under recall notice.


    However, I was very pleased with the Ruger LCR that I
    handled a couple of weeks ago.

    Light, a big plus. I've owned a couple SP-01s and found them to be too big and heavy for pocket or ankle carry.

    The grip fit me very well.

    Power:5-shots of the heavier .38 Special +P gives me much more
    power than any .32 ACP.

    A dreamy double action that really didn't seem long for me.

    Unlike the J frames, the Ruger doesn't pinch my finger during the
    stroke.


    So, post your LCR pics and tell me that it is horrible to own.
    And not so very sweet as I found to be.

    I count LCRs in my head every night, thinking of them nestled in
    High Noon pocket holsters, and full of Hornady 110 grain 38 + P FTX.

    Here's my little one



    It's wearing it's fancy clothes. Normally ust wears a Nemesis pocket holster.

    I love mine, it's the first DAO revolver that I've been able to hit a target with. The trigger on it is way smoother and lighter than any other snubbie I've tried.

    My wife wants to get her carry permit and decided that the LCR fit her hand just right. I found one with the CT laser grip for a pretty good price from the LGS, so I grabbed it up. It feels really smooth just dry firing. I'm really looking forward to getting it to the range for some breakin time.

    My wife loves her LCR.


    I like hers so much that I am going to be getting my own LCR next.

    Handled one of these for the first time at Scheels about a week ago. The trigger on this gun is amazing. Smoothest revolver trigger I've ever felt. My wife currently carries a S&W642 that we're seriously considering replacing with an LCR due to the much easier trigger. Just gotta find one with the CT grips for a good price.

    They should be even better with the XS tritium front sight.

    Clarkston,

    Have you got a chance to shoot one yet? I read
    on another board about a retired LEO buying one
    and then felt it was a mistake due to the felt recoil.

    I want one, too. And an AR15. And a second AR15. And 'nuther LCP. And more accessories for my shotgun. And a Kimber. And more 1911 mags. And a Stoeger Coach gun. And lot's of ammo. And more ammo. And more guns. And more money. Sigh **

    You just have to love a good 2nd hand rumor.

    Seriously, I read that same thread and even posted my opinion there as well. I had to say that if my 110 pound wife can comfortably shoot the LCR, then anyone can. I really think that our good LEO friend just had a beef with Ruger's new abomination and wanted to push everyone back into the S&W J-frame camp.

    I have owned J-frame Airweights and I have to say that the Ruger LCR has noticeably less felt recoil. The heavier all-steel Colt and Smith J-frames can have even less felt recoil, but what needs to be compared here are the ultra light J's... Ruger wins.

    I had a 342 for a fw weeks. The recoil from the first 4 rounds didn't bother me that much, but the fith round firing and the gun locking up on me was enough to say BYE to S&Ws with the lock.

    now I'm eager to see how the Ruger LCR performs.

    Might be a while as Christmas funding will be stealing from the gun savings.

    I appreciate all the responses.

    I just posted this pic in another thread and I thought the message and picture would work just as well here.

    A good army buddy of mine once told me, "Nothing tells a bad guy that you're serious, like staring down bullets in a cylinder". I especially like the highly reflective silver depressions in Gold Dots.



    This is what the business end of the LCR looks like!
