Ruger LCR in .22 mag

Has anybody had hands-on experience with the new little .22 magnum LCR from Ruger? if you have one, how does it shoot? If you don't mind saying, what did you pay? Planning on it being my next purchase and would love to hear from some owners ..

Thanks ...

I recently bought two LCR 22 mags for $410.00 each and just put Crimson Trace Grips on them. Haven't been out to shoot yet but hopefully sometime this week I will. 22 Mag ammo is easier to find than 22 LR.

Found one at Cabela's yesterday for $399, snagged it ... waiting for a sunny day to try it out ...

BTW... the local Cabela's is saving ammo for gun purchases, so they guarantee they'll have ammo for you at the time of your new purchase...

i have shot both ruger lcr in 22lr and 22mag back to back. really love them both. they shot point to aim at 10-15 ft. smooth ejection with a firm tap on ejector rod. i didnt use the new 22mag p.d. ammo but didnt find that muzzle flash was excessive, tho was more than the 22lr. my g.f. on her first range trip would only shoot the 22lr twice. i only wish that the lcr 22mag came in 7, not 6 round cylinders. i would also love to see a lcr 327mag. without getting into the stopping power debate, in the end if i could only have one i would take the 22lr, 8 rounds of even a lighter round are bound to defuse any emergent situation but you certainly wont go wrong with either one, its a tough choice. you can get a speed loader for the 22lr but not the 22mag yet. both 22lr and 22mag were $450ish.
