    Assuming not wearing tight pants like jeans, is the LCR small enough, or do you need to go with a small .380 like the LCP?

    I can carry my LCR in most of my pants pockets without problem. I have carried in khakis, cargo pants, shorts, and overalls, and I have a pair of "Faded Glory" jeans from WallyWorld that have large, baggy pockets that I can carry it in, also. My Levis and Wranglers have pockets too small for me to get my hand and the gun out easily, however, so I carry IWB with those.

    My experience with pocket carrying my LCR is this: The only way I can successfully pull it off is in a Desantis pocket holster in cargo shorts pockets which is actually quite comfortable. A standard pocket is just too small for the stock hogue grip, the boot grip may be small enough for standard pocket size carry.

    LCR is fine for my wife or me. A good choice for pocket carry with a good holster.

    I'm able to stick mine in my pocket and hide it just fine even with a cheap $15 holster I found at Bass Pro with khaki shorts. Of course in this state I can't leave my property line with it on, but oh well...

    I carry a J Frame S&W 642 in my pocket in either a Desantis Nemesis or Mika holster most of the time. The grip is what gives most people trouble if it's anything larger than the boot grip that comes on the 642. I think the LCR is similar in that regard--the two revolvers are close in size.

    A LCP will fit in ANY men's pants pockets. A revolver will fit in SOME pockets. That's the difference.

    I just got my 357 LCR Thursday. Friday I shot it and it has been in my pocket since then. I am carrying it as backup to my SP101. It seems to carry just as easy as my 442. Shooting 125G 357 Ammo was not a problem. The grip works well handling recoil and fits my Jeans and Cargo Shorts Pockets just fine.

    I was considering the LCR, when I bought my 442. They are very close in dimensions. I carry my S&W in my pocket, more often than not, and I believe that the LCR would carry just as easily.

    I wear either Wrangler cargo pants, or Walmart carpenter jeans, or similar. Today, it's riding in the strong side pocket of my Merona slacks. I'm using a Remora No-Clip holster as a pocket holster. It's a little larger than a specifically designed pocket holster, but it works.

    I would think that your LCR would carry just fine in any reputable pocket holster, as long as you don't have skin tight pants.
