Well, I'm a big
Ruger fan and firm believer after years upon years of use (and abuse) in the rugged, reliability of their firearms, so I'll always side accordingly with some sort of prejudicial judgment towards the firearm manufacture that has served me best.
I have some experience shooting the LCR (as well as countless hours with a J-frame) and can tell you both
are excellent handguns, although completely different.
All that said. . . I'm still wary of plastic framed revolvers. I know many of you absolutely love the LCR and I respect that, but I have not chosen to add one to the family because I'm a durability freak. I have ONE
plastic framed gun (my only semi
), The XD
and although I love that handgun with every ounce, it will be in constant question until we part.
Of course this most likely has nothing
to do with "polymer" construction. So there must
be some other cause, especially since this is the first incident I have ever
heard of with this beloved firearm. Right? ? ?However,
This lady should
be able to shoot 2,500 rounds of +p ammo
out of this weapon if it is rated to be suitable for it.
Sore hand or not, there is a "safety factor"
included in everything (consumer) related to human safety that allows grace in the case of a failure.
Curious to hear more. . .
