My wife carries the LCRx in .22WMR. It's way better than the alternative, which would be nothing.Wife likes small revolvers wanted something with no recoil and light. She ended up with a S&W 351c it’s hammerless, j frame, airlite. Its 7 shot 22 WMR and weighs 11oz iirc. Extremely easy shooting no recoil means follow ups are a breeze. In my experience 22WMR tends to be a bit more reliable ignition wise then 22LR for whatever reason.
