Purchased the new Ruger LCR today... will pick up in 10 days. Seems like a cool little revolver and the trigger is very nice. Should be a good carry revolver for me or the lady.

Anyone have experience with .38 +p ammunition? I am a 357 magnum fan myself so I am looking for something loaded hot in the .38 special flavor. I was looking at the double tap 125 grain +p JHP. Seems to be one of the best options (second to Hornady 110 grain +p critical defense) with claimed muzzule velocity of 1175 FPS and 383 ft. lbs muzzle energy. Any other suggestions?

Buffalo Bore's 158+P is THE king of the hill. Matches many 9mm loads from a service size gun in raw power, when fired from a snubby.

BB's version of the Gold Dot 125gr load is slightly hotter than Doubletap. And while edgy as hell, Buffalo Bore's loads have not been blowing guns up.

Did it make the roster yet or are you a LEO?

Not a LEO... The gun is now on the list. I paid $499 for mine in San Diego. I probably could have found a better deal but only one shop I called had one in stock and I wanted it ASAP. I'll snap and upload some pictures once the wait period is up on July 2nd.

Awesome, thanks.
