    Actually...it's the wife's new little friend. I get the added benefit of shooting it. :D

    She just got her CC and was looking for something she felt really comfortable with.

    It's a Ruger LCR 38 Revolver. It was one of the first mostly polymer revolvers made, and after extensive research and review, this is the one she went with. Added benefit is it's about $200 less than an S&W

    Here's one with Hogue grips. She liked the grip better than the Crimson trace grip, but the later won out because she felt more security from the laser site



    Now I want one

    Shot this baby in the back yard with the wife last Sunday. It's a beauty. As accurate as any snub I've ever fired. She put nearly every round in the 9/10 ring from about 15 yards.


    Only drawback is that because it's polymer, it tends to have a bit more bite than a snub that's not composite.

    Nearly everyone at the gun shops I visited recently has said to get this over the S&W bodyguard.

    When I opened the thread I thought it was going to be a puppy. :(

    As I gun nut I've got to say it's weird that I don't a wheel gun that doesn't require black powder and percussion caps. Now I'm seriously considering picking up the .357 model of this. I've read that if you buy a modern wheel gun, you should load it with snap caps and work the double action a few thousand times to pattern wear the parts which normalizes the trigger pull. Since I've never bought a modern double action revolver, does anyone know if this is true or a myth?
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
