    For a revolver, about 5 to 10 is enough. Your more than good to go.

    Zero rounds through mine. But that's because it hasn't shown up at my FFL yet.

    150 or so. Carry it all the time. Has at least that many dry fires as well.

    Probably 400 or so. DC member AZchevy has roughly 1,200 through his last I read.

    Less than 100 for mine. Dry fire is probably 250+. I carry it and I trust it.

    I really need to hit the range soon.

    My Ruger LCR .38 is my "I'm not carrying a gun" gun. So far I have shot 50 +/- rounds through it. No problem carrying it on those off days.

    Probably around 500 now. It takes some practice to become proficient with a snubby and since this is my EDC, I wanted to make sure I could draw, fire (accurately) and reload as quick as possible. It's still a slower process compared to any one of my semi's, but I've gotten pretty good with the LCR.

    BTW.... The trigger requires absolutely no break-in whatsoever.

    is it really that great compared to the other snubbies? from the reviews i've read and watch, it seems to revolutionize the snub nose revolver. they say the hogue tamer grips really makes it fun to shoot. i had a taurus m85 ultralite titanium before and i sold it. it never had a problem but it was not fun to shoot and practicing with it was a pain. now i'm thinking of giving a snubby another chance.... maybe the LCR will be the snubby for me.

    "Is it really that great compared to the other snubbies? from the reviews i've read and watch, it seems to revolutionize the snub nose revolver."

    No, not everyone thinks it is really that great at all compared to other snubbies. It's trigger is garnering a completely unwarranted reputation as being superior when it really should be judged as inferior due to it's pull and mile of over-travel. The trigger is only good if one has very low expectations of a double-action trigger on a revolver. Cheap plastic and aluminum alloy may be the way of things now days. Convincing shooters to accept and consider that less is more is what is revolutionary about the LCR.

    The LCR does serve to mitigate recoil quite well for a revolver of its size and weight. There are older designs out there that beat it though for shooting use.

    I can only compare my LCR with a S&W M37 I used to own. IMO the LCR is the winner. The trigger is better, the Hogue grip makes shooting a little more pleasant and the weight makes it easier to carry. I don't seem to have the over-travel issue and happen to find the pull easy and very smooth. It will never come close to the M37 in the looks department and perhaps even the build quality department, but the fact of the matter is that it is built well enough, it's reliable and much more enjoyable to shoot than other snubbies I've shot in the past.

    With just over 50 rds. through mine, I have had no problems and carry it with no questions about doing so. It is not FUN to shoot, as far as I am concerned, but I am already getting better with accuracy and enjoying it more with each cylinder load. It is LIGHT, and WILL recoil, but I have my EAA 357 Windicator for fun with both38 sp. and +P.
