    I was browsing Ruger's site and on the front page was their LCR. I've been out of the loop for a little bit but thats a nice looking firearm. Is it out yet? Any details, feedback, etc?

    Ruger says they started shipping the beginning of March, but I haven't seen one anywhere yet.

    I agree that Ruger has a potential winner here:
    1. if Ruger holds the actual selling price below Smith & Wesson,
    2. if the new cam trigger is as good as advertised, and
    3. if the LCR performs reliably with no recall.

    I got a chance to check them out at SHOT Show. The gun is very lightweight, which will be good for carry, but bad when it comes time to practice (like all lightweight revos). It has a nice steel cylinder. The trigger was decent, but not anything particularly noteworthy in my opinion. I kept thinking to myself "there has to be a reason why no one ever made a revolver with polymer!" I guess we'll see how they hold up.

    The lightweight revolvers are not for me. I've tried; been there and done that before. I very much prefer a sub-compact semi-auto. If I'm going to carry a revolver, make it a 3" .357 in all steel :D

    As long as the Ruger Curse doesn't remain for yet another gun, I will look into obtaining one. It won't do anything an Airweight S&W won't do, but just for the "cool" factor. :D

    +1 for waiting for a recall. Ruger may or may not have to recall the LCR. But based off their recent reputation, I would wait for a year or two before I would think about picking one up.
