RUGER LCR-have you seen the video?
Hey, Revolvomaniacs-:D

I was web skipping, and ran across this:

Ruger LCRâ„¢ - Video

Now, if only it was available in a 6-shot .327 version! (lustful thoughts :p)

Speaking of which-did you know you can (at least you COULD) email the Ruger President, with suggestions, from their website?

Your 2c?

I can't imagine going looking for trouble in the dark with one of those. I can't imagine wanting a thirty two. Just not my cup of tea at all.

Well-I never go looking for trouble, anyway; but you could fire this one through your pocket (if need by) if trouble CAME LOOKING for you!

By .32 I assume you refer to the .327 Magnum?

If so, to each his own-;)

Ruger lcr...
Hello again, Virginian-:)

After some overnight 'brain work' I'd like to take this up, again.:D

Yes, the LCR is so 'unremarkable':p (my word) that every revolver
maker at S.H.O.T. will have a prototype (or at least tell attendees
they're working on one) polymer-frame revolver, minus the patented
internals. Also, look for Ruger to quickly offer a GP-100 style version,
soon. I didn't read this anywhere, I am prognosticating. As will Smith,
as soon as they can figure out how to 'clone' it, as Ruger did (after
all, turnabout is fair play) with the LCP, and the Kel-Tec.

Glock should have developed a 'perfection'? :eek:revolver design like
this 10-15 years ago, but since they got fat off their autos, why
bother? If they had (in a duty size/style) they most probably would
own 70% of the police/security market, instead of only 50 (or so, of
late). Same with the SU-16 they've never produced, and probably
never will. Now, Mr. Bill's company has beat them to the marketing
punch, which basically came out of nowhere, although I know Ruger
spent much time and money in R&D on this. If anyone would have
tried to guess a year-or-two-ago which of the majors could pull this
off, I doubt anyone would have picked Ruger. Very well-done, indeed.
:-) (bravo!, with clapping heard in the gallery).

My perspectives-

I looked at one very closely this weekend and it was OK. It was offered at a real good price but I chose a J frame S&W instead. I think the LCR is a good engineering effort and good gun - but it's not for me. Nice trigger though...

I really don't see a need for a 357 in a 2" snub. From what I hear your really not getting much more energy out of a 357 than a 38+p in a 2" barrel, just more noise and flash. I got a 38 s&w airweight and has plenty of snap. I would imagine the 357 would get a little uncomfortable after a few rounds.

I don't either-which is why I didn't mention one. :confused: If you mean the reference to the GP-100, that is a Model 19/66-sized 4" large-framed, duty-type weapon, suitable for police or security carry.

Another 2 'coppers'-

from what I have been told it not so much the wieght of the gun that makes it good being i dont think u can feel much diff. between the Lcr and smith's 442 but the Lcr is supost to have a great trigger pull.

Correct-it is the polymer frame (and modular internal trigger group) which sets it apart; just as Glock-in the early 80's, in automatics.

Thanks for reply- :)

I got one last week and I really like it. I have only put 50 rounds through it though.. I didn't buy it for a range gun but if I'm gonna carry it I wanna be proficient with it.
The trigger is great !! It carries very well due to its weight and size. and its rated for plus p ammo.. Not sure if the smith is ??
