Hi guys. I'm a complete newbie to the gun community. As such, I've been doing a LOT of research and the level of engineering and design that goes into firearms continues to astound me. Despite my young age, I find myself inexplicably drawn to revolvers. The Ruger LCR in .357 catches my eye as a possible concealed carry option.
In researching the LCR, I was amazed how Ruger was able to infuse new life into the proven design of the snubnose. The use of polymer housing and gel inserts has enabled a lighter-weight revolver that still shoots well. This led me to start thinking about whether Ruger may try to bring the LCR into a larger frame (ie. SP101 or GP100). I know that their existing models perform very well but I'm always excited to see innovation.
So what do you guys think? I know many of you know much more about engineering and firearms than I do. Were you guys shocked when the LCR first released? Do you think it likely that we will see a larger version of the LCR down the road? If not, please feel free to explain.
