    I have one of the original concealed hammer LCRs....like it MUCH better than a .38 or .357 snubbie....

    @scottman how were those 32's out of it? Ive long thought it would be a good caliber option for my mom because of so many different rounds available.

    Excellent write up. I like the concept of the .327 Mag quite a bit. It defiantly has its niche...But I just can’t being my self to pull the trigger on anything else than the .357mag which I have reloaded in the past to do pretty much ch anything I need a revolver to do. (I don’t even buy .38spec. Revolvers as I mostly just use .357 cases. )

    I wouldn’t want to stock all the components. And To my eyes a .380 is as bout as small as I want to go In a semi auto... massive compromise as it is for a minimum “deep concealment” or “running” defensive handgun

    Unfortunately Ruger is about 8 months behind. The .357 was was supposed to come out last late summer...9mm is next and then the .327.... So it may be a while before we see the .327.

    Came really close to ordering the lcr in .327, ended up with .38 ,no one locally stocks .327 and I really don't want to invest in yet another caliber to reload. It sure is one heck of a temptation tho.

    Mom "loaned" Dad's old .32 to my sister, she shoots some .32 colts that I gave her.

    I'm about to trade her something else just on account of I want Dad's gun back in my family heirloom collection.

    Maybe this would work on account of it will shoot the ammo she has.

    Honestly she's like my grandmother.

    "Hey mr burgler, ya'll wait right there while I go find my pistol and load it up so I can shoot ya"

    Not exactlly a non gun person, -can't grow up here and not know guns- but not much on actual self defense shooting, but having a gun is just a way of life for almost any southron lady.

    Ya'll'd be amazed at the number of lil' ol ladies with their husbands old 6 inch revolver in 357 or similar riding in their purses.

    Thanks for the food for thought.

    I'll clean revolver and shoot 327 federal magnum when comes.... 32 acp at 100 is hilarious doubt I'll ever shoot any more of that at 100.

    4 days from order didn’t drive to cabelas wasting time to be disappointed that they don't have certain 9mm loads I need. 250 rounds at 50 cents a round
