    Congrats buddy!!! I got one about a month ago and love it!! Mine has the transfer bar rattle as well but for the most part you never hear it while you're carrying it.

    ktm, I don't know how I missed this!!

    Yea it rattles but only when I shake it.

    I don't shiver down here in Florida so it's not been an issue. I had a piss quiver while carring and didn't hear a sound.

    When summer is over in another month or two I'll switch back to my Colt.

    Rusty, (?) I carry Cor-Bon 38 Special +P 110gr DPX and when I pull the loud switch on this 13.5 oz puppy my arthritic wrist lets me know its +P! I’d rather shoot Fenrir, but I'd rather carry my Elsie Ahrrrr! Target load wad cutters are an absolute pleasure to shoot and I can run 200-300 in a single range session with no problemo. Asmel can attest to this and I'm sure he will back me with saying it has the sweetest DA trigger around.

    Hooks, hop over to the Introduction Section and tell us a little about yourself.

    Two questions,
    First what is the rattle, Something that will gain attention just enjoying daily life or something you have to be break dancing to to make happen? I truly want to buy this pistol as my next gun but if it rattles like old guy with a pocket full of coins then that is an issue.

    Second question the ammo strips in the photo, who makes them? Do you use them and if you do what do you think of them?

    The rattle is just the transfer bar in the trigger mechanism. Its not very bad or very loud just something I noticed and at the time was fust wondering if it was normal. Next time you see one just shake it a little and you will hear it. It doesnt bother me at all, I just have a thing about noises that shouldnt be there, maybe its from too many years as a auto tech lol :confused:

    Hoping to take to the range Thursday. My daughter wants to try out her new Sig P238.

    I'm seriously eyeing this as my first concealed carry pistol, and have a huuuuuge interest in how they shoot, so do post a range report when you get the chance. Also, how well do they fit in your hands? I have large hands and want to make sure the LCR will fit in my big mitts.

    Congrats again, KTM. I'm jealous.

    DMac there are a few writeups in the Range Report section if ya haven't seen em. I got my LCR about a week ago and love it for CC. The grips fit my some-what large hands(wear XL Gloves) extremely well.

    Cane and I have big paws, I'm 6' and Cane is like 6'3" and is no doubt that the LCR fit very well in our hands... I can shot all day long with it. The only thing is that the +P ammo is a little bit snappy because the lightweight, but that's all, with practice ammo I don't have any problem.
