    LCR Grips

    Do you think the boot grips offer a clear advantage for concealment? I found a few pics online and they don't really look all that much smaller. I know some people have said they are less tacky so it reduces your shirt hanging up on the grip but I haven't really found that to be a issue so far. Do you feel that that boot grip helps with overall concealment?

    I think they make a huge difference. If you pocket carry, the boot grips are the only way to go unless you are always wearing cargo pants.

    I handled both the LCR and S&W snubbies at a local gunshow and just didn't like the grip on the LCR. Particularly, I didn't like the way it fit behind the trigger guard. Otherwise, the weight, size, and price were comparible with the S&Ws. I looked for replacement grips for LCRs and didn't come up with much. I'd like to keep the Ruger under consideration if someone has a line on replacement grips.

    They definitely conceal better than the Tamers. For me they are too small and slippery to be practical for shooting however. Your mileage may vary.

    Yes, I think the boot grips do offer a decent advantage however it does not outweigh the fact that they sacrifice too much in traction.

    They are simply too slick. I like what AZChevy did with his though.

    Speaking of AZchevy, does anyone know of a way to get a hold of him not that it appears he is no longer a member here?

    I pocket carry with the Tamer grips and have had no problems. I don't think the money spent on boot grips would offer enough of an advantage for me to spend the extra $.

    Rollo - Mine came with the CT lasergrips. I carry in a pocket, though. Seems to work well. If you can swing the $, I highly recommend them.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I've got the KLCR, LCR in .357 mag. I see no problem with the factory grips. I've only had it at the range twice since I got it.

    what? Was he banned? I hate to hear that as he had some very informative posts.

    he took the boot grip and stippled to add traction.

    I just don't see how they are too slippery for you. They are less slippery than wood or plastic grips.

    I would get Crimson Laser model 411 for LCR if you want smaller grip. The original is very sticky around the shirt.
    If you recoil sensitive stay with original grip.

    I had an lcr and the boot grips are much better for pocket carry. Big difference. Shooting with the boot grips is similar to a j frame with factory grips.
