Default Waiting the CA approval of Ruger LCR .22 Mag

Anyone else waiting on this to be approved for CA? The dealer we use says they should have them in sometime in March....I've already started buying ammo. Does anyone by chance have one yet? Or shot one? I've done a LOT of thinking and looking and love the LCR, but didn't want the .357(even though most are telling me just to get that one and shoot.38 ) and I know I don't want the .22 LR. I'm hoping to use this as my daily carry for up close and personal situations. Also want to be able to be really comfortable and knowing from the past I wouldn't want to carry a larger caliber revolver....I have a great .40 Springfield XD, but wouldn't want to carry that on me. SO, any thoughts or anyone else out there waiting and hoping to snag one? I certainly hope this wouldn't be affected by anything in the newest proposals out today!
Thanks,
Just a regular rural Momma!

.22 Mag is a great round, it is much better in a rifle than a pistol due to the pistols short barrel will not allow the round to get to maximum velocity before leaving the barrel.
Not exactly the best self defense load, but better than nothing at all.
Fun to shoot with low felt recoil.
Probably wont be affected much by any of the gun control issues going on right now as it is a revolver.

Can even be converted to single action since its DA only without an external hammer? that's the only way to do the exception.
SSE is for automatics, besides the the LCR would not meet the minimum length.

I'm pretty sure it'll be approved soon with the other calibers already on the roster.
As far as the Chiappa Rhino, it's been pending for years, but if I were to get an off-roster revolver, that would be it.

aww it's hammerless. SSE is not only for automatics, i've seen revolver get SSE with the double action bars removed. but the barrel and overall length might be an issue as it is not so easy to replace barrels on revolvers.

Yeah, I want one for some reason. I have no practical need, but I just like that gun. I would love to see Ruger turn that platform into a Kit gun. Add some adj sights and lengthen the bbl. They would be light and accurate.

7 or 8 rd capacity would make it perfect. 6rds of rimfire for a gun that big doesn't seem worth it.

Supposedly the hollow-point rounds in .22WMR are optimized for the shorter handgun barrels. Just something I heard, don't take it as fact. I'm interested in the gun for my wife and for fun.

Got tired of waiting and searching for something else to satisfy me in the mean time. STILL will buy one of these at the first chance, but I bought a Taurus 941 .22 mag yesterday. For $469 it was hard NOT to get it. It's bigger, heavier and has a hammer, so not the LCR, but I am anxious to get it in my hands and take it out. It's got great reviews as well. I like the extended ejector rod, the key lock and 8 round capacity. I hear the trigger pull is very havy at something like 16lbs? Didn't feel anything like that to me, but if I don't like it as much as the LCR, if and when I can get it, then it can be just another one in the safe. Anyone have a taurus 941 snubbie?

I was at the gun show in Del Mar today. A gun store in La Mesa said that have ordered 150 Ruger LCR .22 mag, and they are expecting them sometime in the next month. The guy who works there said that this gun is anticipated by LEOs as a backup, so it's going to be popular....just wanted to share what I heard...I'm already buying up .22 mag ammo.

I hear from the shop my husband likes to buy from the same thing about them being approved soon and that they had an order in for quite a few. I couldn't wait. I've been buying any and all ammo I can. In the last 4 weeks I've only been able to scrape up 650 rounds. And some of that was double the usual price. OWWW! Anyhow, I did get my Taurus 941 and went straigt to the range. It was awesome to shoot in SA, DA was tough as heck. My husband was steller with it and didn't even notice the DA to be a hard pull!? I honestly don't shoot often and haven't actually been out shooting in almost 10 years. As the story goes(which of course I forgot) I'm a righty who shoots lefty. Once I remembered why I was feeling so awkward, all was well. Same goes for baseball, dribbing a basketball and fishing. Go figure. Anyhow. We didn't have more than 30 minutes at the range so I only put about 24 rounds through it. After getting it home and cleaning up the "axel grease" that the factory had in it and getting all fixed up I think it's going to do me just fine. Now to find the right kind of holster and finish my CCW requirements.

I’ve been waiting and searching for a LCR .22 mag myself.
I’ve been thinking it would take about 9 months to be CA approved because of all the gun stuff going on. It’s really nice to read that it might be a lot sooner.
Any and all hand guns are hard to find in my area right now.

Mike Dee – I really like the looks of your S&W.

The Ruger LCR22wmr will not be the be-all, end-all of 22mag revolvers. Although I do not own the 22 mag version, I DO own the 22lr version. And honestly, I much prefer shooting my Taurus Model 94 22lr 5" barrel in SA target shooting than I enjoy my LCR22lr. The LCR is awesome for carry duty though!

Anyone know if the gun has to show up on the CA approved list before the gun shops get them or will Ruger get notification from CA so they can start shipping them before it shows on the list?

Thanks

My youngest daughter lives in MS now has 21 acres and she has a CCW she carries Ruger LCR loaded with 38's, she is very happy with it and handles it very well.
