View Full Version : Should I Buy The Ruger LCR?

Man, I got a hankering for that little pocket defender. $399.00 is tempting.

Those of you with it give me a reason, go ahead and throw some gas on the fire.

Just bought one for the CCW. I like it. Shoots well. Just need to get used to the trigger.

I'll sell you a brand new, unfired one for $370.. save the tax and all that stuff :)

Located in OC

The more I think about it the more I see it was the wrong gun to buy for my wife.. too lite (HD gun) and she would be happier with a SP101

I'm lookin at the LCR also for CCW. Where did you find the $399 price? Lowest I can get local is $495...

Got one for my wife. Good trigger, light weight for CCW. Not fun to shoot at all. Only way I can get her to practice is with 148 gr. wad cutters. Should have got a used Colt Detective Special.

I picked one up a few months ago. I like it alot. I really like the hogue tamer grips, nice big trigger guard for my chubby fingers and the trigger is pretty nice.

I only have 100 rounds down the pipe. Once I'm up to 300 rounds and my holster shows up, then it may become my everyday carry.

I'm not much of a wheel gun kinda buy but this one I really like. Get the .357/38 special one. :D

I have this gun and I really like it. I think it is fun to shoot. It is small but mighty as it packs a wallop. It does not hurt your hand. I would not sell mine. I take this to the range as well as my Glock 17. They both serve a different purpose for me.

we have one at the local fun shop...IMO, it's too light to shoot often, I'd much prefer a J Frame, it is nice and light, but I don't like the trigger guard either, it's just a bit too big for my tastes

1. Everyone and their dog is gonna say its a brutal shoot w/ the full tilt stuff.

2. It's 17oz (if memory serves).

If ya can get beyond #1, #2 makes it a very easy to carry option. Easy carry is good cuz that means it's with you all the time.

I like easy.

I'll deal w/ the ouchies as needed, later. :D

i'll repeat what I said in the other thread:

"Yes, because Ruger's million gun challenge really, really, really pisses the anti's off."

My brother got one and I really like it even though I've never been much of a revolver fan. Its small and lightweight, the recoil is stiff but manageable. I think it would make a great ccw piece.

I've CCW'ed mine for the past 18 months or so and really like it. I have the 38 spl with horndy +P's, weights in at 15 oz loaded. I mostly pocket carry with a couple differrent holsters. I have CT grips and with plus P it will put a small bruise on the back strap of your hand, but with the hogue grip and standard pressure rounds its really pleasant to shoot. Its got an awesome trigger!



I got mine for $400 before tax when the first came out.

Thanks all- Pretty much the opinions I expected.

I think it's a done deal. The LCR then a Mossberg 500.
