Default Should I wait on the Ruger

Have my sights set on an SP101 357 3". Problem is, I can't find a new one anywhere. Some LGS guys tell me Ruger is months behind in the production of this gun. So should I wait or source another weapon? What even comes close is what I am trying to figure out.

from what my LGS told me a couple of months ago, Ruger is putting in place measures to increase production of their present line of pistols and have been behind for some time. he told me that Ruger suspended all future orders until further notice. he said that delivery of new orders might take place in August or September from what the distributors are telling him. only time will tell.

Just damn. If it's August or Sep, I guess I can put some money down & wait (kind of a LGS layaway). Found a used one 250 miles away. Thinking about making the drive. Is that sick or what?

If you have your heart set on something, don't settle, wait it out, keep looking. Did this once, always regretted decision, ended up selling the one I settled for and got the one I didn't want to wait for!

What did you like better about the LCR vs. the S&W?
