    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.

    Jack,

    This is straight from a review of the LCR:

    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!!

    Maybe... we should start an LCR dedicated thread?

    I paid $369.00 for mine, but that was some time ago. I saw them today at Academy for $450.00.

    Have you lost your mind? You think that is Ugly? That sunbeetch is down right sexy. The Mrs. just got her one and it is a very nice choice. It is even sexier when she is firing it. Nowatimeen.

    I have mine set up with the Crimson Trace grips and find it to be a fine little piece.I just wish that the CT grips were as comfortable as the Hogue grips that come with it.

    I would buy one in spite of its looks, but good .38 SD ammo is ilegal to use for SD in Argentina (stupid law). If they came out with one in .357 I'd be all over it...
