I just got the .22 LCR last week.
While I always have a weakness for .22's, I have to say the LCR went right to one of my favorites.
Starting with being accurate this gun weighs loaded with 8 rounds less then my pocket flash light!
If you load it with Stingers, it's not even that bad of a backup gun.
The .357 version is great too, I would not go with the .38 since you can shoot the .38 out of the .357. So why not get the full package.
The LCR line is one more example how Ruger is separating themselves in the firearms industry through innovative quality firearms at affordable prices.
