jeeze, it's 16 degrees outside, wind chill is 10. that's bad, really for south carolina. it's not supposed to get that cold here. i was thinking of going outside and shooting my new ruger but damn sure not in this shit. hell no.

Nice pistol! I've heard nothing but good stuff about this one. Only one minor thing to watch for, and it's more of a shooter thing. If shooters ride the trigger out after firing it might cause it to short stroke. Not the guns fault though, hope you enjoy the new addition of Ruger awesomeness! :cool:

It really is cold.
I need to lay in some winter supplies.
I am going to have to break out a heavier coat and go to the liquor store.
we're fully prepared, we both have M65 field jackets w/ liners and 1/2 gallon of our favorite juice

a little practice today should clear that up. luckily we've been working with my sp101 for the last 6 months and this won't be much of a transition. Rottie is already loving this thing, you may see her carrying it more than me :D

it's so light that a .38 in here feels like a .357 in the 101. but since my hand is the size of a pizza, that won't be a problem for me

The LCR is very nice!

I was looking at one a few weeks back at a Gunshow. I did not take any money so I wasn't tempted to bring it home, but I think it would be a perfect revolver counterpart to the LCP; something that is light, small, mean . . .

When you do get it shot, please let us know the details. I'm curious about how it handles.
I have a P3AT and it is a real angry cat to shoot.

I have some friends who are partial to the revolvers.

Ditto on the P3AT. Nice to carry but shooting it for practice is like holding onto a pissed off cat....a big one.

I also came very close to picking the LCR, and I still might.....but not until I build up my toy account a little higher.

I made this for my LCP. It dosen't really affect concealibility or withdrawl because it dosen't stick out below the bottom of my hand when I hold it. It only comes to the bottom of my hand and allows me to get a full grip on it. It helps accuracy a great deal.

LCR vs S&W 642? Why the LCR? I ask because i am buying a 642 soon. Thanks, MCD
lighter, thinner profile, better trigger, way cheaper, it's a ruger, hogue grips, fits holster and speedloaders i already have for my sp-101, ruger didn't sell out 15 years ago, just seriously because i really like this thing and i'm about to buy a 2nd one. you should think hard before you buy. just my opinion, everybody else has one as well

EDIT: one other thing, i'm an ME and i've been watching this thing since i saw it previewed last spring.

i really liked what they did with this, i thought it was very innovative and an "outside the box" design. there was no choice, i had to have it.

doesn't this defeat the purpose? if you have to do this, why not just get a bigger pistol? my whole problem with bigger pocket pistols is that the grip is sticking out of my pocket. if i do that, i might as well just go with a bigger pistol

i'm just a 9mm minimum man anyway if i'm going to carry a pistol, kurz is not for me
