I swapped for an LCR about 3 weeks ago, and it's not a bad little revolver. It's lighter than my 642, but the Hogue grip is thicker than those on the S&W so it's a toss up as to which is more concealable. I like the LCR, but I'm afraid my wife may be wanting to swap her LCP to it!



Edit: I've shot mine with the +P loads and I'm not sure I'd really enjoy the .357 version without those Hogue Tamer grips. For defensive loads I've tried Hornady Critical Defense 110gr FTX, Hornady 158gr XTP, Winchester WB/USA 158gr +P JHP and Federal Hydra Shok 125gr +P. They all shot fairly close to point of aim. I also tried some S&B 148gr WC and Winchester WB/USA 130gr FMJ. For whatever reason the 130gr FMJ landed a bit to the right in my particular gun. My wife was willing to shoot up every round of the S&B WC's and Hornady Critical Defense loads.

I shot a few rounds out of a friend's LCR. It was very accurate and not a harsh shooter. 38 is a decent self defense round.

I would much rather have a 38 than a 380.

HTH,

I've been carrying the LCR .357 for 4 years now. Prior to that, SP101 and J Frames for 28 years. Much to my chagrin, the LCR shoots circles around all of my prior 5 shot revolvers!
