    Ruger LCR357 vs S&W 3" 36

    I currently have a 642 and a 4" 13. I have the itch for a new gun. On a local forum I have the opportunity to purchase a 3" Model 36 with a square butt for $300 or a 357 LCR for $400. I am now confused on what to get. I know that the LCR will fit in a pocket but more than likely this will be carried IWB. I will more than likely shoot 38 +p out of either. Im not sure about continued use of +p in the 36 then again I doubt I would ever shoot enough to make a difference. I just cant make up my mind. The LCR could shoot 357 though I doubt I will often. I think weight wise they are about the same. I cant buy both. Which should I purchase for daily carry and why?

    You appear to appreciate traditional arms, will shoot mostly standard pressure ammo, and belt carry. The LCR is a tool, the S&W 36 a useful treasure especially in 3". If the 36 is in excellent condition for 3C's grab it.

    Big LCR fan here. However, for $300 I say get the 36. Good luck.

    besides, Georgia's kinda pretty this time of year and it isn't that far too walk
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them
