How much do you know about them? Have you handled one? Have you fired one? Be careful making such a blanket statement with so many LCR fans in the forum!

Do you really NEED one, Spitty? You already have your Kimber and your XD. I'm just sayin'...you NEED an AR and we need to see your receiver!

The only problem I see is that I bought a stupid Taurus before Ruger came out with theirs. I will probably have to upgrade to the Ruger.

THE END IS NEAR, was a jest Mark, don't get your panties in a bunch...

I find it interesting how we all interpret new designs. Some we see as great leaps forward, other we see as solutions in search of problems...

I'm sure the LCR is typical Ruger, inexpensive and reliable all day long.

Was at the range test driving my new CZ 75B yesterday and the young man next to had an LCR and an LCP.

Of course we took turn w/each others guns and my feed back is...

LCR-Fairly nice to shoot, lightweight, and the .38 Special is plenty of pop for defensive purposes, however, I own a SS Ruger SP 101 for about the same money and the ability to load UP with .357 mags when I'm hiking in big cat country is IMO an advantage over the LCR.

LCP-To small to shoot accurately, even the small handed ladies present "who printed nice groups with my CZ" could not keep the LCP groups within 12" at 10'.

IMO the LCR is fine for its purpose. The LCP like so many mouse guns is just too small with to long a trigger pull to be usefull much beyond contact distance. And the .380, well, I think your taking your chances when there are a plethora of very shootable yet still compact 9mm's on the market.

I transitioned from an NAA Guardian .32 ACP to a Kahr PM9 about two years ago for this reason.
