    Okay guys, what do I want santa to bring this year? I'm getting something but I just can't make up my mind. Here's the short list: yugo sks for just over $400, or ruger LCR .38 for $500 (yeah I know they're going for waaaay less elsewhere but it's what they're going for here locally in the good ol' PRK). I reload (and cast) and have a carry permit believe it or not so that makes the LCR more attractive, but I like the fun factor of the sks and ammo is so freakin cheap too...

    First of all, welcome to THR!

    Your 2 choices are of 2 tyoe so firearms and uses; for fun and for CCW. It sounds like you may have a variety of firearms and want to treat yourself out this Christmas. That's a tough question you ask. As for me, I most probbaly would get the SKS. I am at a stage where I use my handguns for self defense and not for target practice. I basically "train" myself to shoot self defense. If I were to purcahse a long gun, an SKS in your case, then it would be basically for plingking.

    As an owner of an SKS and a snubnose revolver, I'd skip the SKS and get the LCR. Especially if all you can do is shoot paper with either of them.

    SKS's are fun and versatile, but IMO to really enjoy an SKS you need to shoot at non-paper targets in the great outdoors.

    I can't see the fun in shooting a snubbie at paper, either :) I'd go with the Yugo SKS.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have a LCR 38 and it's s fine carry gun. Depends what you want to spend more time doing. I carry more then I get to shoot so I'd go with the LCR.

    If you allready have a good weapon for concealed I would get the sks. Unless you all ready have an assault type rifle; then get the lcr.

    SKS. You can hunt deer and use the savings on the food bill to get the LCR.
