I haven't broken down to the urge to have a nice S&W wheelie yet but will readily admit I've never shot a semi as accurately as I have a Ruger Blackhawk.
Agreed.Really? Wow, I mean the list you put is absolutely backwards for me.
Did you mean to use .38 in +P and +P+? I don't think .357 in 158gr loads are normally a problem. My understanding is problems can be encountered using 125gr ammo due to higher pressures on the forcing cone. .38s to do not reach the same high levels.why not try a S&W K-frame? 2-1/2" for CC. 4" for a more all around gun. 3", if you can find one, for a good compromise.
very smooth trigger, nice size. better not to feed it a steady diet of magnum ammo - stick to standard pressure, +P, and even +P+.
if you can't find a K-frame you like, or you really want a new gun, try the Smith L-frame, which is slightly larger, but able to take magnum ammo all day long.
I have heard the same in regards to K frame Smiths. I have a 66-1 6" .357 that I bought used several months ago. VERY nice gun and the trigger in single action is so light and smooth that it's on the brink of being a hair trigger.Did you mean to use .38 in +P and +P+?

I feel like I should have a revolver just because so I shot a few.
SP101: much better
Taurus (I forget what model) pretty good
I'm not sold though.
I agree with you. I love my LCR. However I would caution anyone who is interested in one, especially women, to shoot one before you buy. It's very lightweight, which means that it can be uncomfortable to shoot, especially with +P loads. Of course I'm speaking from my experience with the CT model, which has a much smaller grip than the Hoque grips. It's probably OK with the Hogues.The LCR is very nice. Love the light weight and the trigger.
