That would not be hard. So I say 90%. But it is Ruger so maybe 70%.

They actually have 2 new tacticool mini-14s!

And they have the #1 in, for some reason, .475 linebaugh and .460 S&W.

I would say the odds are 100%, although I don't know if it counts as being released at the SHOT show, because they've already given it it's own website.

It looks like the LCR should be priced about the same as a Smith 642. I figured it would be less. Oh, well.

I have never seen a #1 in person - they look very cool in the pictures. Are they pretty nice looking rifles up close?

#1s are fairly well made. One sat in our local gun shop for three years. We moved so they probably still have it.

Is that because they are not very popular?

If if is the LRC that is there 'uber-release' at SHOT I will be triply dissapointed. I fear it is going to be the LRC. Standard overhype marketing.

I don't see the gun as revolutionary. Just a bit of what was once all metal frame is now polymer...and the cylinder is fluted to the extreme. Big woop.

Plus Taurus and Smith both make lightweight revolvers.

The Ruger is 13.5oz. You can get a 12 oz smith if you want hammer or no hammer.

If you want a 'bodyguard' style like the LRC, you step up to 15 oz.

Taurus has hammer and hammerless for 13.5 oz

and a bodyguard type for 15.5 oz http://www.taurususa.com/products/product-details.cfm?id=302&category=Revolver


I guess that leaves an 'awesome' trigger.

Not sure how applicable an 'awesome' trigger is in a snub nose

I like the No 1 and they're nice in person (the older ones had better finishes, but the new ones are fine), but I think a lighter No 3 is a more appropriate platform for the pistol cartridges. I guess the advantage in a 460 over a 45-70 is the ability to shoot 45 and 454 through it. As a consumer, it's not enough to convince me to pick a 460 over 45-70. There are No 1 nuts out there that will happily buy up the small supply.

I can't decide if I like the LCR or not. I may buy one a year or two down the line (assuming gun ownership is still allowed), but won't be the first in line.

Nahh that had it priced $300 over GA prices. Also the first time I looked at it he came across the counter and said "It takes a special man to own that rifle!" I think he just liked looking at it.
