    New Lady to Guns!

    This past weekend my husband took me to a gun show to chose a weapon for defense. I ended up with a Ruger LCR .38 with a crimson trace. Now I intend to get a concealed carry and get a trainer. My husband is very weapon savvy and served in Vietnam Nam. I chose the revolver as I had difficulty pulling back the slide on the semi-automatics like the Beretta Tom Cat, which I really liked. So.. I have come to read and learn so I don't sound naive when in the company of professional gun owners.

    Oh ... welcome aboard from the rainy south.
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    Welcome from Wisconsin. Your LCR is a very nice little revolver.

    Welcome from Florida. This group is the friendliest bunch I have run into. No matter what you own you get support. Questions are welcome because it gives everyone an excuse to type on here
    I am not familiar with the Rugar LCR but my revolver (357mag) was a tad ( OK very ) hard to cock. I ended up replacing the cocking spring with a lighter one and that made everything smooth as silk. If it is hard to cock, might look into that option.
