Family member got the .22 LR in June. I've had a few Rugers and didn't think I'd like a "plastic" revolver but I was surprised, to say the least.

Small frame rimfires, as a rule have heavy trigger springs, supposedly due to the smaller hammer mass.

The .22 LR has an 8# trigger pull and is smooth, very nice.

I'll have to pick up a .22 mag.

I will be quite surprised if you can walk in anywhere and just buy one. They are very scarce due to the new introduction and high demand. The counterman at Cabela’s was amazed that they had one in stock, it had just happened to be the only one they had ever recieved and they had put it in stock the night before and I just happened to be the first to ask them to check their stock.

Its over the edge in the Phoenix valley — they had the LCR 22 Mag but not one box of 22 Mag ammo. I finally found just one box of 50 after checking three other places — I found it at a pistol shop that doesn’t cater to rimfire weapons and they had that lone single small box. I have checked four times at four different stores in the two weeks since I picked this up and have found no more ammo anywhere.

I am not going to the range and shoot up my only box of ammunition for the wife’s revolver. She knows how it works and it is loaded where she can put her hands on it in an instant.

Now when I get her the little sub-compact 380, I hope to get her three range trips at 30 rounds per trip so she stands a chance of hitting something with that small barrel, but the LCR is big enough that I think she can hit center-mass with it.
