Just shot her today. 357 version but shot 38 spcl Remington 158gr +P LHP and S&B 158 fmj. This thing shoots like a dream and i'm getting scary accurate I was using the Bantam grips I just got although the pic is the Tamer grips which I put back on after I cleaned her.

No. Wood grips are same size. If anything a shade smaller.

Anyone here using the Bantam Boot Grip on theirs?
I'm considering them for carry just because the Hogue grips are a little too thick IMO.
I love my LCR .38
I will probably keep this gun until I die. I would eventually like to get a .357 version.
Some say the .357s are heavier to carry than the 38+Ps, but I'm not finding this true.
I'm using .38s in it though as I search for a suitable mid-range .357 load to try out.
I normally like High Noon Holsters, but am a supporter of small businesses as well.
Terry Clament makes a fine product.
Well...I'm in the club too. Love mine but have been carrying my m&p 9c mostly. May start carrying it as a BUG or just keep in in bug out bag.
I belong to the Taurus club. It breaks so often its only good as a club. I'm soon to be member of the ruger club. Got my eyes on a LCR

So I have been looking at the LCR a little bit and I find it a little large for pocket carry, so I am leaning towards the .357 because it is a little heavier and would absorb the recoil a little better. My question is this (sorry to hijack this thread a little), if I plan on mostly shooting .38 spcl is it better to just buy the designated .38 revolver? I am new to revolvers and I have heard of some people talk about a gap jump when shooting .38's out of the .357. Is that gap jump anything to worry about or does it affect performance much?
I think guns are like insurance. I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
I had one for about 5 min. Long enough to to know it was a mistake just didn't like the way it handled. I didn't care for the way it shot. and really didn't like how it concealed, it seemed bulky and grabbed my clothing as well as odd shaped and didn't fit me well. Really liked the S&W 442 I traded for. Guess I'm not in the club. Be safe. Happy holidays.
