Marano: I would argue that Ruger is pretty much what they have always been: A company that builds rugged guns that are innovative and makes them so the common man can afford them. That LCR 22 should last you a lifetime. Times change. Ruger has made appropriate changes. Sometimes the more things change the more they stay the same: that's Ruger.
9mm: Usually the problems with trigger reset are operator error. I'm not saying yours was, as I obviously don't know.
RJay: Great post!
I have the 357, and it is amazing. It shoots sub 3" groups at 20 yards when I do my part. That's amazing for a gun with a 1.875" barrel. But the recoil is stout. I mostly shoot 38 spls in mine because of that.
