It was definitely a purchase of passion...

I believe I paid list, or list when new as the are not making these now from what I can tell, just North of $1k.

10 shots today (I hear ammo is scarce) confirmed that OOB accuracy surpasses my eyesight as I drew 3" groups at 50yds. That is as good as iron gets me anymore.

Kick?, yes. But not as bad as my other .308 bolt. Nothing to fear and I did not develop a flinch. Trigger was quite pleasing, but my finger had already explored there...but I digress...

Slender profile, no scope, light weight, and short barrel makes this my new favorite "carry" rifle.

Either way you go a Ruger is hard to beat.
So would you recomend the heavier revolver to a first time owner. I have experience with long guns so I know about recoil, but I've never shot a wheel gun. I'm a fairly big guy 6' 245lbs. In semi auto I only own 9mm but I've shot .45 and that was fun to shoot. I like your suggestion on getting .357 and shooting .38 also.

Yeah, I like or I should say that I am used to the weight of the heavier guns and I am about the same size. It is not an issue for me to carry a G22 all day or the SP 101 with a 2.25 barrel. It was not much fun at the range at first shooting .357's but a grip change and dropping down to .38's really made a big difference for me. The LCR IMHO seems like a great CC but not a fun range gun. So depending on what you are looking for is which way you need to go. Go to a LGS and handle both if you can, then see if they rent them at the range and shoot one of each and with in 50 rounds thru each gun you should have a good idea of which is right for you.

You'll be able to handle any sidearm you want.

I've never shot a .454 Cassull or .500 S&W, but those are for special purposes only.

Anything from .22lr on up to .45 acp is a piece of cake. The only rounds I shoot that cause some discomfort are the .380 acp out of my I.O. Hellcat and .357 mag out of my S&W Model 60. They are pushing alot powder and mass compared to their size and weight.

The .357 mag actually hurts my hand in that little package. When I carry the S&W I do load it with .357, because I know as a hunter, that when the time comes for a shot I never notice the recoil, however I do practice mostly with .38 spl.

Heres my babies! P345 (.45 acp). It was my first and my favorite. Shoots great. Then theres the lc9 and last but not least the mk3. A 10/22 takedown in stainless is in my near future. Also on my want list is a sr1911

Just got my first Ruger's a few months ago, the LCP, easy to carry, goes great with the "MARYLYN" holster, also got the 10/22 stainless takedown, very nice!

I have always wanted to own a Ruger with Birdshead grips. That is one sexy revolver.

Thanks. It's feels great in the hand and is a blast to shoot. I almost bought another one just like it last month. But I bought another 1911 instead.
