I wish Ruger would make the LCR in an 8 shot .22 magnum version instead of a 6 shot. It makes no sense to me that the .22 LR version is 8 shot and the magnum version 8 shot, they are not a lot larger in diameter. And its not like the .22 is too powerful for the cylinder.

Smith&Wesson 351 gets you 7 rounds if that helps.As a kid in the 1970sI was told El-Al Airlines stewards carried this revolver but never could find any supporting info on this.

Yup, I'm a revolver guy and my boss the Glock guy called me a revolver snob once.  I still own the first revolver I ever bought, I had to bring my Father with me to pick it up.

I regret the quality of American made revolvers has gone down a lot but a Ruger is still a rock solid piece of equipment at a fair price.

My primary carry is a Smith and Wesson 640-1 I bought new in the 90's and I'm thinking about replacing it with a Kimber K6.  I'll never allow myself the Korth Combat and I wont buy a MIM gun.

They are simple, durable, and can be very powerful.

I used to have a .44 SRH that I bought "for fun". Which, it was.

Now, I am planning to buy a .38 Spl 2.5-3" semi-shrouded hammer, because there are things I can do with it that I cannot with a semi-auto.

Currently I own and mainly train with semi-autos (M&P, Glock, SIG, etc.), however, the revolver does offer a few things that recently became apparent that I am lacking/want.

I guess I’m taking tactical overboard with my 8-shot .357 mag.

You can put a light on all the other weapons, why not a revolver?   I say it looks deadly and I would not want to looking at the muzzle end of it.

I have CCW'd revolvers exclusively for three decades, experimenting with semi-autos on occasion. I am intimately familiar with wheelguns, their strengths and limitations, and shoot them quite well. I took a S&W Model 65 to a defensive pistol class last year and held my own with the Glock crowd. At different times, a S&W TR 325 has ridden in a strong side holster, as have a Ruger GP100, S&W 37, 640, 60, 19, 66, 686, 28, 629, among many others. One in particular that I am using as a BUG is the S&W 351C, a very nasty little fellow chambered in .22 mag and featuring an enclosed hammer Centennial frame. I will never be without a revolver, thought I am very sentimental about the Colt 1911 that comes out for air every now and again.

I don’t know guys. German’s .357 looks just plain badass! Guess that’s because it is, and an 8 rounder to boot. Love the gun, like the light just not sure if I want the lines of that gun messed with. But JD is right, why not light up a revolver like every other weapon? Good idea I guess. Now I’m just thinking here but take this .357 back to it’s original look, and put the light (or what fits) on an AIP, 870 build. Put ‘em together and
would be just “plain bad” (plus maybe a Glock for a backup :-) ... Now I’m gonna be out spending more money, I gotta stop looking at these pics. Nice German.

Hence, an AIP 870 was suggested as a senior partner to that fine revolver. Now if only I can get the producer of that shotgun to build just one more. 🤔

JD ... I assure you that every one of my revolvers is a stepping stone to reaching my Marine Elite. 😉
