    Ruger decided that the .38+P was just not enough and created a new model just for the .357 Mag...

    I saw the press release and thought Why??? BANG! OW!!! MY HAND!!!

    Peace...

    I have a feeling that the next version of this revolver will be a 6 shot .327 magnum. I bet it would be a huge seller. I'm going to get the .357 version, but I would also buy a .327 LCR if they ever make one.

    As for availability, .357 LCR's are starting to show up on gunbroker.

    I'd have to try .327 Mag just to see...

    Or perhaps to satisfy the folks in bear country they offer one in .44 Mag...

  7. LCR 357 Owner Speaks Out

    I have never seen so many people dish what always looked like a great gun to me. It is extremely well built and a serious improvement in materials and construction than the LCR 38 special version from what I saw before purchasing it.

    Broke it in with 38 Special Ammo (I had some concern as well :) ) and it had a good pattern. Low and spread out some but not bad.

    Then, I tried the 357s. Other than people asking me if I was shooting a 45.... :), I thought the pattern was very similar to the 38 Special. Of course, it has a bit stronger recoil, but nothing too hard to handle. I think you expect alot of additional recoil and are prepared for it. No blisters, no crazy stray shots, just a bit more scattered than my 9mm shoots. And, I am very much a novice shooter. Probably put 30 357s through it. Had to wrap it up in paper so it didn't melt the case...

    Picked it up online for $460.

    Go for it! It's a great conceal gun to me!

    The owner of a local gun/pawn shop here carries a S&W scandium revolver as his EDC. He says "This gun is not fun to shoot." I've never shot one myself but that has to qualify as understatement of the year.
