NRANews’s Cam and Company [ iTunes Link, 1/14/10 episode ] let slip the news that Ruger would have a LCR chambered in .357 Magnum on display. I am sure that this is the wheel gun that Michael Bane recently blogged about!

The original .38 Special Ruger LCR was announced at SHOT Show last year.

Ruger Lightweight Compact Revolver (LCR) .38 Special

[ Many thanks to Nick for alerting me to the news. ]

    I know this blog is a few months old but folks were begging for an upsized 9mm LCP..........well, you got it and I finally got to handle one at a show this weekend. I do not like it. I does not feel good to me, I do not care if it feels wonderful to you. I'll take the Kahr's any day. It really pains me to say that as you could say I am something of a Ruger fan.
