    I think that is one of the best things about LCR. You can buy the 22 and the 38. Shoot the 22 alot for cheap, shoot the 38 for practice and to carry. Makes a great training platform I would think.
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    That's why I asked about the trigger... my girlfriend has an LCR.38, but she's really recoil sensitive, so she doesn't like to practice with it. If the triggers are similar enough, I'll be all over it.

    While I like the idea, I'm not sure if the .22 really is a good substitute for the .38. The trigger might be similar, but the recoil is not; the number of trigger pulls until empty is not; and the reload is not. You're getting practice on the trigger pull and sight picture, which you can also do with dry firing the .38. Snap caps can help you practice the reload.

    Nothing wrong with getting the .22 LCR - I'm just questioning how much training value it has that can translate over to the .38.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    As long as you keep the relative function of the gun similar, I think it's an advantage. It also helps muscle memory. But, still shoot with what you carry ... at least some to be able to deal with the recoil factor, limp wristing, etc. that you wouldn't have with a .22 cal.
