LCR Range Report
In another thread I told about the Ruger LCR .357 magnum I bought my wife for her birthday. We took it to the range today for her to "christen" it.
Let me tell you, LCR's are...sweet!!!!
First time out the wife used .38spl just to get used to a new handgun and the recoil is not bad at all. Her first hits were a bit low but she was hitting the target about 21 feet away from the bench. She fired about 10 rounds then let me shoot.
All I can say is that if you get the chance to fire this revolver, do so. It has the smoothest trigger pull I have ever used. It's a bit of a snubby so there will be some recoil, but it is not hard to manage at all.
Next, the wife put two rounds of .357 magnum to try it. Wow! The recoil was a bit much, but she said that it was not so bad that she could not manage. She popped the next round and punched the target again a bit low.
I tried the .357 round and the recoil is heavy, but again, not so much you cannot handle it. I think I am in love with this revolver. Makes me want one now.
At the end of our shooting, she finally punched the bullseye with her new friend! I am impressed to say the least, Ruger has a great firearm and I won't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!

Yup, I have the .38 special version and agree with ya, awesome trigger.... Great gun IMO, and I would highly recommend either the .38, or the .357 version. One could do a lot worse when picking out a revolver, that's for sure. My .38 is spot on point of aim, and I'm sure it's due to the trigger. Congrats on a fine revolver.

That target looks pretty good for a first time out. It took me some 200 rounds to finally have an epiphany with my KLCR. ........... and, well, I had to send it back to Ruger to repair a firing pin/spring malfunction...... but they took care of it.
I need to get my Critical Defense .357 125 gr through a crony to see if it's worth it. If I can clock in at over 1000 fps I'll be happy. It feels like that should be the case.
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
