Between the gloves and the 500 grips, you should get used to it pretty quick.
A little hint, don't try to muscle the gun down to much. It'll just hurt you more. Let the recoil dissipate by keeping your muscles in your shoulders relaxed a little and let the guns recoil swivel your shoulders. Still keep a good grip on the handle and tension in your elbows. Once you get the knack of it, the gun will rise to near vertical, but will be above your head. You'll be able to do a lot more shooting this way.

Yes I thought that was funny, considering he handled the recoil of the .500 better...and then went on to state that he had to get one of those... I wanna get one too - but $1200 is a bit out of my price range at the moment.

Probably most people didn't notice the chronograph recording... it was over 1600 FPS! That's easily +P+ ammo. Most .44 Magnums range from 1000 to 1450 FPS typically. Sombody slipped Ermy an "extra" hot load... I bet he didn't know that either!

Just when I thought it was "safe" to go back into the water...
I get bitten by the LCR bug. So here it is, my new LCR.

I think you'll both like it! It's very comfortable to shoot and easy to conceal.

You're gonna love it!

My Elsie Ahrrr;



The only problem I found is the speed loaders don't work! The Hogues are too fat.



The clip-draw is a great addition. 15.9 oz loaded with 110 gr +P Cor-Bons. Great summer carry.

Ya read my mind Cane on them clip-draws. I was going to invest in one once I snagged 1-2 of those LCR's.

Those LCRs are neat little revolvers. The only problem is they feel weird in my hands...lol.

I handled one recently, and the word "Glock" came to mind, which I thought was weird, considering this is a revolver...lol.

I need to find one that I can take out and shoot before I decide. I really like the idea, though. I think Ruger is smart for putting this out.
