Ruger 5450 LCR 5RD 357MAG/38SP +P 1.87"
by Danny S Date Added: Friday 04 May, 2012
Took this out to the range today and put 100 rounds of Winchester .38 sp and 40 rounds of Winchester .38+p through it. Firing the regular .38 sp was very comfortable, and at 7 and 15 yards(I only shot this one at the shorter ranges since this is meant to be a concealed carry firearm, and one that if I ever have to use will be up close) was pretty accurate as well. Controllable and not bad to shoot at all. Firing the .38+p was also accurate and controllable, though there was definitely more sting in my hand after firing the +p rounds. Haven't fired any .357 through it yet and while I imagine it would be tolerable, I don't think it'd be overly fun to shoot for any serious length of time. My assessment, stick with .38sp if you wanna take it out for shooting targets, and load it with .357 or +p when you plan on carrying it. My only minor complaint is that the ejector rod has a tendency to not fully eject all the cartridges, requiring a little shaking to fully remove the spent casings prior to reloading. Still, a very nice, compact revolver that's both controllable and accurate at 15 yards that makes an excellent concealed carry piece. Having fired both this one and the original .38sp only LCR, I *do* recommend this one even if you don't plan on shooting anything but .38, the extra weight of the .357 version makes it more comfortable and easier on the hand than the standard LCR.

As for Buds, same incredibly fast service as on my prior orders, can't go wrong with Buds,
