Are there any drawbacks to owning an LCR?
 
I've seen nothing but good reviews, and heard no negative comments made on the LCR. I'm planning on getting one next week (My first revolver). Anything I need to know?

Apparently purchasing one is filled with glee and happiness, followed by an inability to spell the name of the weapon correctly.

Other than that, I think you are good to go.

What's the price on that baby in your part of the world? Thinking about adding one here as well....

$450 as of yesterday. I actually got to hold one for the first time. I liked it.

I can't think of any drawbacks. I like mine a lot. It's a great little badass package.

Dave, I'm not sure plastic stealth revolvers are even legal in Arkansas...

Jack,

This is straight from a review of the LCR:

Quote:

The frame of the LCR is made up of two components. The cylinder frame is made of aluminum, which is a pretty conventional material for a lightweight pocket gun. However, the grip frame is made of a high-tech polymer, and extends below and to the rear of the cylinder frame, cradling that unit, and contains all of the fire control parts, such as the hammer, sear, and trigger, along with the necessary springs and pins to contain and provide fulcrums for those moving parts. The cylinder and internal parts are made of stainless steel. The polymer grip frame is not a stressed part. It comes out of the mold ready to assemble, and requires no hand fitting to the cylinder frame nor to the internal parts.
So yes, there is plastic!!!

And yes, I was joking with Dave as I think they're a spiffy piece myself...

The only drawback I can see comming your way, is that you'll need a S***load of money for buying ammo, as revolvers are so much fun to shoot,...:p

5-Shot, not really a problem.

@ $450, that should be out the door with a holster and a box of ammo!

Most I've seen lately are under $400.

You will love this gun!!
