I am driving back from a gun show and just purchased a LCR for my Christmas present. Early present of coarse. So far I am happy with it I've read a lot of reviews on it and I hope I can shoot it this week or so. I just had to state how excited I truly am.

I'm hoping with this next week coming I'll have 150-200 rds fired. I knew I was buying last night and was so excited for today.

Congrats and of course we want a range report, especially for a new concept weapon like the LCR.

Put 50 rounds through one today, my wife thought she wanted one so we rented one to let her try. She did not like it at all. Too much recoil for her. It was fun to shoot, don't know if I would buy one though, too many others I would like first.

... so we rented one to let her try.
Some of you are lucky that you can try these out or rent them before purchasing. Not here in NY. I'm waiting for someone local to get one so I can try it. <sigh>.

I got one like 3 weeks ago...you will be very happy!!!

I first rented a 442 and LCR and for me the LCR had a much better trigger, pinned front sight(XS Big Dot will be available soon) and it was cheaper.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I bought it as a BUG, but I have already a few times just grabbed it and tossed it in my front pocket and ran out of the house.

Your gonna love the LCR

I bought one a couple of months ago and it has been my constant companion. For a very lightweight snubby I can't find anything to complain about it other than the grips are a little chunky for pocket carry. It does kick a bit but less than a comparable Airweight Smith.:wink:

Finally shot mine today. 35 rounds of factory and reloads, mostly +P.
No signs of breaking or having forcing cone issues.

I'll post my Range report on the Crimson Trace equipped LCR in a day or so.
I still need to upload the pics.

Know that the Range employee had never seen on in person.
He was very impressed when I let him dry fire mine before
I went onto the lanes.

Same here. Not a legal issue in my case. Just a little too rural to support many paid ranges.
On the plus side, if the Conservation Dept range is too crowded, I can always head over to the family farm and terrorize the local squirrel population. :gah:

Take a day trip and come over to Connecticut and rent from Hoffmans and try it at their range. I find that they have the lowest prices around. I am not affiliated with them in any way. I just like their huge store and prices

Congrats Impulse,

I was at Birch Run Saturday too, I went to find a Sig p239 DAK, could only find 1 used p239 in the building. In looking and holding this arm I decided I did not like it all that much. I also checked out the Keltec PF-9 and the Walther PPS decisions decisions its all fun, my wife will be taking the class for her CPL in the summer and is looking at the LCR let us know how it runs.....
