I have not shot this revolver yet, it's too cold outside, and my local indoor range requires lead ammo, of which I have none right now in this caliber.
My wife purchased this gun for me for Christmas (), and its purpose was to be for a drop-in-the-PJ-pants-pocket-while-taking-out-garbage or as a second gun to be carried in an outer pocket during the winter where my coat impedes draw from IWB.
1. Trigger pull is way smoother than my old 642 or my friend's Taurus 85. I dry-fired it a bit. It's still a J-frame-sized DAO revolver, so the cam system can only do so much for what is inevitably still a longish and heavyish trigger pull. But it's a SMOOTH pull, and my inexpert mastery of trigger pull causes much less wobble than it did on the 642.
2. Boot grips actually have a slightly slick texture that I don't like. The boot grip may have gone too far in the opposite direction of the tackier and bigger Hogue Tamer grip on the standard model LCRs. That being said, there is still some give at the backstrap padding, and at least it has backstrap padding, unlike my old J-frame. My concern is that the sides and front strap are slick enough that holding on tightly may be rough. I think I would have preferred they keep the finger nub on the front strap and maybe left nubs or a little stippling on the sides of the grip.
3. Sights are great. The rear sight channel fits the standard dot XS sight perfectly. This is an outstanding sight setup for a small revolver.
