I prefer steel myself, but the poly guns have a place. The LCRX is a joy to carry, I have both the LCRX 38 special models. Have no desire to shoot a 357 magnum in one though.It looks fine (cough cough) but would be one I would pass on and fortunately, Ruger never has many I would pass on. And yes, definitely NOT a poly guy!! If I want a feather lite, I'll go buy a BB gun... Too much BULKINESS in poly guns! Grips are where I draw the limit and I do prefer wood grips also.... I have a beautiful set of woods on my .44 Magnum!!
SP101 also make a good non-lethal club.I prefer steel myself, but the poly guns have a place. The LCRX is a joy to carry, I have both the LCRX 38 special models. Have no desire to shoot a 357 magnum in one though.
My favorite Ruger revolver is the SP101. I have them in 357 3", 22 long rifle 4" and Match Champion 4". I do wish the Match Champion was 327 Federal though.
I also like my SBH in 44 magnum, and it does look better with the Rosewood grips, but it drives my finger into the trigger guard. Not much fun after the first few rounds. The Hogue are fugly, but does make it more pleasant to shoot.
Curious, when were you in? I was 1978 - 1984.
I had a Model 60, it was stolen and I didn't like it enough to replace it.I have been waiting for the 3" LCRX 357. But...It is UNHANDSOME! I would rather have a J frame Model 60 for more eye appeal, but that does not seem to be in the budget!
