    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.

    Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
