Ruger LCR 9mm Release

Recently Ruger has released a new caliber option for the Ruger LCR. Ruger has now introduced to the revolver market the new 9mm LCR. The 9mm has been a popular round for new gun makers in the recent years. Most have been focusing on smaller handguns and slim designs such as the Ruger Lc9. In the recent years manufacturers have been pursuing revolvers with the option of selecting 9mm, 40, and 45 calibers. What could be a better combination then having the LCR in 9mm?   Ruger known very well for its LC9 & SR9, 40, and 45 have put together a phenomenal piece for those who choose revolvers over the semi automatic pistols.
