I'm looking to buy a snubby 38 with the intent to add it to my CCW permit. I have pretty much narrowed it down to either the S&W 442 and the Ruger LCR. I can get either one for 399 and S&W is having a $50 mail in rebate now so the 442 would be 349. As far as the guns themselves go they are almost identical in size and the LCR only weighs 1.5oz less then the 442. I have shot a friend's 442 and liked it pretty well and did ok with the 20 rounds I shot. I have not had a chance to shoot the LCR but plan to rent one before making a final decision. I currently own an Taurus 605 that I do not want to carry since it's heavy and I'm looking for a lightweight BUG. Anyone have experience with these 2 revolvers that can give me advice? I know either one would be a good choice, just looking for opinions from people who own either gun. Thanks in advance!
