Default Ruger LCR .22wmr

I just ordered one. Any thoughts on the pistol or LCR line? I've read some good reviews and am looking forward to shooting it!

I wonder why Ruger made it a 6 shot instead of an 8 shot like the .22LR LCR?

The long cases of .22M can cause extraction issues, especially with a snub. Ruger went for reliable extraction over higher capacity.

The 22 WMR seems like a good idea. I like the idea of the 22lr as well for cheaper practice. The 357/38's are also nice, light, accurate guns.

I'm thinking its going to be a really fun gun to shoot! Maybe even a great pocket gun!

22 mag is nothing to sneeze at, should carry quite well.

Actually you should not shoot 22lr in a cylinder designed for 22wmr. They are not the same diameter case. Guns that shoot both have two different cylinders. The Ruger doesnt have a second cylinder does it?

No I was just talking about the other model in 22lr. That would be awesome if they did offer a swappable cylinder though.
