Revolver for Concealment

I don't want this to me a "autos are better" thread. I like both autos and wheel guns but i prefer a large caliber to defend myself and a revolver offers more punch in a small frame weapon AND it will fire every time i pull the trigger unlike an auto that might jam.
So....anyone used or own one of these? I like what i see here.

Ruger LCR™ *Double Action*Revolvers

2003 6.0 F350 dually on high cholesterol fuel (WVO)
2000 7.3 Excursion also on a high cholesterol fuel

I've never used one but I've always liked them.

I would REALLY be interested in it if the made one for .327 federal magnum rounds like the Ruger SP101.

I would stick with a Taurus or Rossi in .357 snubby. Cheap, reliable and easy to conceal. For those that do not know .357 magnum also shoots .38 Specials...

That's a good looking gun Clay. Have you checked on availability yet? I just bought a Charter Arms Undercover 38 single and double action. I tried to get the hammerless DOA only one, but they said I'd be waiting for a while to get one. Mine fits in my front pocket, and weighs 1.5oz less than the Ruger not that that really matters. It shoots the same ammo, is accurate, and cheap. I paid 380 for mine out the door, with tax and everything. Charter Undercover DAO #73820

I don't have any experience with the Ruger you mentioned, but I do like Ruger as a gun maker

Clay, I'm not sure if this is something you would consider, but it's one heck of a deal. I used to carry one of these years ago. Very nice piece.
