Another entry in the packer/kit gun is Ruger’s LCRx 3-inch. Last year Ruger brought out an exposed hammer version of their very successful LCR line. At 15.7 ounces in .38 Special +P, the LCRx 3-inch revolver is accurate and small enough for almost any purpose. Double-action trigger pull on the LCR has been excellent from the beginning, but the added accuracy potential of the 3-inch barrel, combined with adjustable sights and a single-action trigger, make this an impressive little gun for general outdoor use.
