    My least favorite revolver along with one of my favorites. I really want to like the lcr, but I don't. I don't know why I don't, because it is really accurate and light in the pocket. But so is my 442, and with a slightly smaller foot print when Wearing its wood grips. (2nd picture)

    I might like it better if I could find some grips I liked. I really don't like the ones that come on it . It's been Wearing these Crimson Trace grips. (3rd picture) Only use the laser for draw/ dry fire practice. Have some for the 442 also. My 442 has 4 different grips I like. The ones in the 1st picture I like for iwb or owb. Get a really good, fast draw grip , not to mention tame the 38 +p I like to use.

    Also for some reason the lcr won't work with my Safariland comp 1 speed loaders, which I like over the HKS.

    This may or may not be to your liking for the LCR... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hogue-Tamer...S!-1:rk:6:pf:0

    For pocket carry it's better than the original because of smaller size. If you have big hands or don't like your pinky without something to latch onto, it will be a no go.

    For me, I don't care about the pinky. It's better carry in the pocket.

    71yancy, I bought some of those about 3 years ago. I do like them better, but they are too small imo. Can't get a good hold on em. I feel like it would be to easy for a bad guy to grab it out of my hand and I've got a pretty strong grip. (been using one of them hand/grip strengthener things for years)


    I've been thinking about one of these 2 grips, but they are pricey, $87 for the Badger and $100 for the Eagles . I just don't know if I like the lcr enough to justify em. I'm still having a hard time accepting plastic in my revolvers. Lol.

    I tried to like the LCR357 for 3years. I just didnít like the Trigger return and the gun never fit me as well as the J-Frames. It had good sites and was accurate but I like my J-Frames better.

    If I was in your shoes I'd put the $100 toward another gun instead of trying to turn the LCR into something you'll like...but still won't. Get your hands on a K6s and see what you think. It ain't plastic either.

    Got one already. Best trigger on any revolver I got. One of my favorite carry guns. I bought it as soon as my local cabelas got em in.

    Yep, one of my favorites also along with a 642 and trigger job to get it close to the K6s in feel. One or the other goes for a daily ride. The LCR is also a sweet gun but like you, it doesn't get the nod over the other two.

    There's another one I recently purchased mainly because of the price and didn't have high hopes or expectations but it took me by surprise. My up front thinking was possible "junk". Boy was I wrong. Taurus 605ss DA/SA .357. Suweeet shooter. One less round than the K6s. All 4 or the guns take the same holsters which is nice and convenient.

    I'm heading down to the range and This old Rossi m68 is gonna tag along. I probably ain't shot it in over 30 years.

    I was digging around in the safe yesterday and found this one in the back corner hiding out with my CZ75. I had forgotten all about it. Gonna take it and a Colt and give em a good workout.

    Bought an 856 and it appears to be a nice little piece. 22oz. as advertised. Shot 45 rounds today.(20 rds. Magtech .38 spl. 158gr. sjhp and 25 rds. Freedom Munitions .38 spl. 125gr XTP) Single action is very nice and double action is a little long to me, but I have been shooting my semi autos exclusively for a couple of years. Well worth the money to me!!!!!!
    I would also recommend the 125gr. especially for those who are recoil sensitive.

    A .380 in your pocket is better than a .45 at home.
