    Its been a while since I posted but I thought I would log on and tell everyone I have been on a Ruger kick lately. Within two weeks I bought an SP101 2.25 inch barrel .357 and a LCR .38. I have a soft spot for good revolvers I guess. Rugers have been scarce in my area, I was lucky to find two that I was looking for. I load both with .38 special 158 gr LSWC-HP +P. I know the SP101 will handle any .357 load but, for the sake of commonality, I keep them loaded the same. Great guns and great shooters. I will post pics and a review when I have more time. Frank.

    I wish that Ruger would bring back a 9mm snubbie in either SP or LCR format. I'd be on it like white on rice.

    I would love to try out an LCR in 9mm, but I would only accept it if it came in a 9mm frame (not just a 9mm cylinder in a .357 mag frame).

    Make it with flats on the cylinder (like the Rhino) for minimum thickness and weight, and they might end up with the LCP of revolvers.

    I never cared for the Ruger grips. I am not recoil sensitive, but my SP101 really hurt every time I fired it. Just how the geometry of the grip matched (or didn't match) my hand. Switched to a Hogue Rubber Monogrip for $20 and it became painless to shoot.

    Congratulations! I think I'm jealous!I love all my Rugers!! I have the 10/22, the MarkII, SP101 3" stainless, and the 1973 stainless blackhawk single six. When I can scrape the do-ra-mi together I plan on getting the new SR1911. I haven't had a new gun for a while and I haven't had a 1911 for a LOOONG time. I could kill two birds with one stone. :D

    I agree with you on the SP101 grips. It wasn't too bad firing .38s but the .357mags were brutal. I too switched to the Hogue grips and that tamed it right down. I can now shoot a whole box of 50 in complete comfort and also faster re acquisition of the target and more accurate.

    The LCR is one of the best cary guns ever crafted! Congrats.

    Seems to me the Rhino is suppose to be coming out in 9MM.

    If it is a real 9mm, not just a 9mm cylinder in a .357 mag frame I will be interested. The 9mm is a very efficient cartridge out of a short barrel weapon.

    I've been very impressed with the guns Ruger has been bringing out recently, both their revolvers and their pistols. When any problems showed up, they also have been quick to fix the problem in the line.

    Well, I don't want a Rhino, I want a Ruger in 9mm. I do think the flats on the cylinder are a very smart idea for a CCW revolver. Works better on a 6 shot than a 5 shot obviously.

    My EDC is now a Ruger LCR 357. Super comfortable and pretty accurate.

    Does anybody know if there is a smooth aftermarket grip (preferrably wood) for the LCR? I'm toying with the idea of buying an LCR for pocket carry, but I don't want to pocket carry with the sticky rubber grip, not to mention that I really dislike the fit and feel of the factory rubber grip on the LCR.
