    Or at least trying to....
    Personally I'm not a fan of the laser on that model. I'll take my S&W 638 with Crimson Trace grips any day over that

    I enjoy my S&W Model 10-5 4inch much more than these light weight hard kicking 5 shots.

    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    Plastic revolvers are an abomination.

    It offers nothing over their existing j-frames with crimson trace grips...and with CT grips, any standard holster will do...

    I happen to think very highly of the Ruger LCR. So much so that I placed an order for it with my FFL guy after spending a little time at the range shooting one that belonged to a friend. The trigger on the LCR is about 99% better than the trigger on my S&W 642 and the grip was very comfortable. I liked it a lot.

    If the trigger on the LCR is really 99% better that peaks my interest, but I still don't care for the looks of the LCR.

    Good, bad or otherwise, I ordered one 'just because' the lunar alignment of the sun casted down upon me when I visited the gun shop. In any event, I may wish I didn't or glad I did. I'll post my review in the fall when it eventually arrives.

    Not really. LCR is smaller and lighter than the "Bodyguard 38", and the LCP is smaller and lighter than the "Bodyguard 380".
