I've been in the market for a .22mag revolver for some time. The gun store I usually deal with in Austin says they can get both Smith models, but it will take 3-4 weeks, or possibly more ... now, however, Ruger is making an LCR in .22mag, and it's significantly cheaper ... while I was mulling all this, I spent the money I'd saved for the revolver on a Springer XDs ... love the new gun, have begun a new savings plan for the .22mag ... why wasn't I born rich instead of good-looking?
