    Finally went to look at guns

    So with Boeing not selling the 787s for a bit, no overtime for me, so i finally went to look at some guns.

    Everyone loves the Ruger LCR's so the wife and i finally went to look. Its way to small for my hand, but she loved it, she picked up the .38. The had a Ruger SP100 there, that was perfect for my hand, a 4 inch barrel, so i picked that one up.

    Lucky you.. I have to work overtime in order to afford to buy a new gun, you don't get to work overtime, so you go out and buy two... Life just isn't fair sometimes!!

    Enjoy your new guns, my wife is considering the LCR. I am split on that for her, I am worried about her tolerance of recoil, yet it fits her hands so nicely, and she really liked the trigger.

    +1 for the Rugers !

    Find a range where you can rent an LCR with Hogue Tamer Grips and let your wife shoot it.
    When you get ready to buy look for one with the XS sights.

    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    kinda like a drug, too much and you get into the next tax bracket though and get screwed, but plane orders wait for no one, especially when a engine throws a blade the day before delivery ane you have to change it in a few hrs.

    That is nice that they had guns in stock. When I went to my local gun shop they said that they have been running at 10% their regular inventory.

    Ruger LCR is an excellent firearm. It was my wife's first, and I'm going to end up taking it for a BUG I think! Recoil is very manageable so don't worry about that (at least with .38s) Trigger is very nice on the LCR as well. Congrats on your pickups. They'll last you a long time and you'll be happy with them.
