    Great gun. I have one and it won't leave ny collection. They're extremely accurate and 38s has no recoil 357 has very little

    I'll post pics if mine and a target I nailed at 40 feet 2/2 Times. I had to put it up sides ways to fit he clamps

    I don't know I got lucky on a trade. I would check a gun show or maybe buds gun shop. Thetes nit a lot of them. I tell you what though, I have never had as much fun shooting any other gun as I do this one. Sure a vepr12 mag dump will put a smile of my face, emptying a full mag out of an ar in the country will make me grin, but this gun had me chuckle. Every shot went right where I wanted. I'm not putting this gun on a pedestal it does have flaws. The single action is obviously a lot more accurate then double, there is no safety and moved its cocked there is no decocking it but it also has a lot of cool factors.

    Also I like this about the gun it will show you if it's in single or double action
    Double


    ForumRunner_20131210_222121.jpg

    Single



    ForumRunner_20131210_222143.jpg


    When the little red tab pops up its cocked or in single action

    Check out the fiber optic sights

    They are but they feel fantastic. I wonder why Jerry M. doesn't shoot these in his competitions. They are very light and dead on accurate.

    Very Light? LOL. I think we have different definitions of light. Even the snub nose Rhino weighs twice as much as an LCR.

    I'm talking about metal vs metal. Yea an lcr is going to be lighter then any metal frame one because of the polymer. I wouldn't shoot a poly revolver for many reasons. If you compare a snub nose rhino to a snub nose rossi you will feel a difference.

    Jerry doesn't seem to like the grip angle. He did a YouTube video on the Rhino.

    I don't have time to find it now but its easy enough to find. I believe he said he would basically have to re-learn to shoot fast because the grip angle is so much different than a normal wheel gun.

    Wow.
    Now I can trust him even more than before, when he seemed to be an appendage of S&W.
    I'd love to be able to shoot half as good as he.
