Kit, or trail guns are light-weight pistols designed to be part of a camper’s survival gear. All were chambered in .22LR until Ruger introduced their LCRx.
Ruger knows how to make revolvers. One of their most popular wheel guns is the .357 LCR, and for good reason. This 17 ounce .357 is about as light and compact as the platform gets. With its enclosed hammer and short barrel, the LCR is a favorite for concealed carry. While recoil from the .357 can be a bit punchy, the round trumps anything a polymer semi-auto can offer.
