Re: Range Report - Ruger LCR 38
I have both LCR's, a .38 special I bought last year when they first came out and a .357 magnum I bought a couple months later.
I carry the .38 special as a pocket gun, when I need one. It's light & handy. I keep it loaded with 110 gr. LHJHP's. It's not too bad with those. I think they are stout enough to do the job, up close, as a "get off me" gun.
I use .357 magnum 110 gr. LHJHP's in the .357 magnum LCR. It is definitely snappier than the .38 special. I carry it every day in an OSWB high ride pancake holster. I have confidence in it to do the job.
I had carried a Ruger SP101 as EDC, for 8+ years, in that same holster, loaded with Silvertips or Golden Sabres.
The LCR is just so much lighter......Takes some getting use to though with the snappier recoil.
Hang in there,and Hang on!
Life is a Journey... Not a Destination!
