I like the 22mag for the wife's side bed gun when I'm out of town. Get the hands wet and maybe larger caliber latter in life.

I have the LCP which is smaller & lighter in every respect - I still know its on my ankle. I went cheap - ankle holster, learn from my mistake ! . Buy the best one you can afford and practice, practice, practice. It is not an easy or natural draw motion.

I do not carry on my ankle anymore -I'm an IWB fan and am giving serious consideration to being a pocket puller. Problem: Damn pockets are too tight, printing is an issue and your buds will pull the inevitable - "Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just glad to see me." Everyone has a sense of humor.

Forget who said it - "carrying a gun is supposed to be comforting - not comfortable..". Think he might have been right.

Love my LCR in .22mag! Blast to shoot and a great pocket or backup gun!

Big fan of the 22 Mag. How's the accuracy in a short barrel ? Fireball effect ?

While I do miss a hammer, I am intrigued by the Ruger design & would love to test it. I fully admit to being kind of old school & when I really want to hit something - I pull the hammer back - SAO on my model 60 or 686.

Old habits die hard, especially when they work - well.

While I CC autos, there is just something comforting about the simplicity of a revolver.

Shoots really good!! Very little recoil, so it's easy to shoot well! Fireball effect has depended on the round I was shooting. "Regular" 22mag rounds...as in made more for a rifle, do a little. Some of the newer ammo(critical defense) is a lot less noticeable.

It felt a little weird on my ankle at first but now I don't even notice it. I use the galco ankle glove even with a good holster it's still a weird draw but its a great back up

It's funny how the ammo almost weights as much as the gun. Funny to look at some of the ballistic charts as well from a snub. Disappointing to see the velocity drop from a 357 snub compared to a 3+ inch barrel. But still a lot of punch in a little gun

I also have the LCR in .357 and can recommend it



It's incredibly light. Like all snubbies it'll bounce around a bit with the hotter load but the key is a firm grip and steady hand. It's nice to have a comfortable carry with man-stopping power, but this is a weapon designed for targets within 20 yards or closer. My son and I are nailing soda cans at 15 yards.

It surprised me that recoil wasn't nearly as bad as I anticipated with .357s.
