Are there any other LCR lovers out there? Or haters. Maybe you have owned an LCR before & sold it for whatever reason. Lets compare notes.

Don't have one or know much about them. How do you like yours?

I knew the minute that I laid eyes on the LCR it was for me. But I went to an indoor public range (another thread on that issue later) to rent one just to see how it shot before I bought one. I picked it up & blasted the target, checked my shots, the rest is history. I knew if I could pick up a gun that I had never shot before & hit paper, I should be good to go with practice. For some reason I don't have trouble with recoil shooting 38 & 38+P's w/ct grips. I have not shot any 357 ammo with it though.

I'm not allowed to bring one in my house (see my rule, below) and the ones I've tried in the store had a trigger pull from hell, though with Ruger, these days, you never know what you'll get for a trigger. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, though, and beauty is as beauty does, so if it works for you, I'm happy for you, girl.

I am used to the J frame S&Ws and I like having a hammer, even a shrouded one. Even though I use it DA I like having the control, and I have encountered situations where a revolver could be cocked and fired SA but not fired DA. Everyone I have known that had one loved it though. I don't recall anyone having a problem and when I handled one the trigger pull was fine. I have a Mod 638 Bodyguard and a Mod 36 so that niche is well covered.

But it does put the "U" in ugly, now that 303 can get the blame.

Personally I like the S&W 642 because all 5 rds and be fired in a jacket pocket DA without the hammer getting snagged on anything in pocket . It is only 20 ozs loaded and is great for house carry gun or a 2nd gun with your CCW gun .

Now that is a pretty handgun. I guess Ruger just wanted to be different.

Hey TGR you may not be beautiful but you are ruggedly handsome. Not that I think about how men look.

I have a the 38 Spl version of the LCR and am thinking of trading it on a Smith 642 when I get back home. I am also considering the 340PD but the price may make me rethink that one.

As to the LCR I have had a couple of trigger reset issues which were common with the early models. It is accurate and the trigger is excellent but it is a carry piece and the couple of issues creates doubt. I like the weight because it is exclusively for pocket carry but it is just butt ugly. My thoughts are unless you plan to pocket carry then get an SP101.
