Went to the doc today and he cleared me to drive. Of course my first trip is going to be to the gun store. So with that being the case, help me decide on my last 2014 purchase. Here are the contenders.

Savage Mk II FV-SR (it will be getting restocked in a Boyds wood stock)
Savage 93r17 TRR-SR
Ruger LCR

No, I do not have a pink fuzzy bunny fetish but apparently my Facebook hacking wife does.

    Need more info: Prices, purpose, and any other comparable platforms in the safe?

    I don't currently own a bolt gun and want a .22 bolt gun for a suppressor host and target shooting, also maybe pest control work. Pretty much the same for the .17. Don't have one, want one, love the round but never delved into buying one. The LCR is to replace the LCP that the wife claimed for her own as i don't have a pocket backup gun right now.

    Going to get them all, this is just to decide which one to buy first.

    In that case, a backup SD gun sounds like a more pressing need. LCR.

    Since you are recuperating at home, .22, clean up the nighborhood with your free time, then LCR, then .17, depending on the deals you fin.d

    LCR in 357 if they don't have a 44 available yet. You could get another LCP and have Eli make them his and hers.

    Fv-Sr. Mine is far and away the most accurate 22 I have. Super fun. I love what Eli did with his, gotta get one of those stocks.

    I'd get an LCRx then.

    In real life, the LCR is too light for .357 and .38 spl +P; the exposed hammer gives more options than the LCR.

    As far as the hammer snagging, just cover it with your thumb on the draw, it won't snag.

    Pocket and IWB holsters for a SP 101 are a perfect fit.

    And the winner is.

































    A $1200 car repair and a kid that came home from daycare early with a fever. Kind of killed the shopping plans. Might have to at least order something online with my C&R.

    Ok, so no gun. However i did order 1000 rounds of ammo, 10 AK mags, a replacement hammer spring for one of my AK's, the parts to complete my SBR build and a few other miscellaneous parts. Plus i think i can save enough on the car repair to at least order the FV-SR. Next paycheck will put a nice dent in the LCR and we will be golden. Wanted to do it in 2014 but oh well, a couple of days won't kill me.

    Freaking Car Repairs! Just had to dump $700 in my wife's yesterday. :angry: Sounds like you have a good plan and got some nice stuff anyway. :beer:

    Put around $3000 into the wifes car and now it needs brakes on all 4 corners and a rear axle seal, mine needs brakes and a throw out bearing so i am having the just replace the clutch and pressure plate as well. Stupid front wheel drive. Rwd i can do a clutch myself in 3 hours with hand tools.

    At that point, car payments sound cheaper.
