Packed with the latest technological advances and features required by todays most demanding shooters, the Ruger® LCR® is the evolution of the revolver. The Ruger® LCR® is a lightweight, small-frame revolver with a uniquely smooth trigger and highly manageable recoil.
The difference between 22 LR and 22 WMR is huge. The latter is a substantial round that will cause your attacker to think twice. The 22 WMR 22 Mag is appreciably more hefty that little sister rimfire 22 LR. Very manageable recoil, but enough power to do the job. Ruger is the best in quality and Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore is great in getting the gun to your FFL dealer.
I bought this for my wife who has never shot a gun before. It's bigger than it looks but not too big, light, comfortable and she hit the target right out of the box.
