I carry an H&K P30SK most of the time in a Ronin concealment holster. Sometimes (especially during winter) I carry a P30. My usual load is 124 gr +P in HST. Due to the close proximity of neighbors, I always switch to 9MM 115 gr critical defense at home. I have an LCR 5450 which I sometimes carry on my weakside in a Ronin concealment holster. I usually carry a B.U.G. when I'm metal detecting at certain large beaches in the middle of the night and when I'm buying or transporting precious metals. I usually load 135 gr +P Gold Dot in .38 special (for short barreled revolvers). Many years ago, during my law enforcement career I had the invigorating experience of fighting for my life to not lose possession of my service weapon. Metal detecting on the surf, I always try to be aware of what's going on around me. Usually I'm the only person of that huge beach at 2 or 3 AM. Between the surf and wearing headphones, I have been surprised to find someone standing within 5 feet of me. Buying and selling precious metals has it's set of perils and that's why I carry a back up. My question is simple: Are there any opinions out there regarding the ammo that I carry in my LCR? When I go to the range, I rotate my ammo by empting the cyclinder at my target - weak hand draw and shooting at about 10 feet. It's a little snappy, but I usually hit center of mass on my first 3 shots and about 50-50 on the final two being head shots. I use about 1 box of target rounds with this weapon per month. I figure that the most likely scenerio when I'll need a BUG we'll be at hands on distance. I would appreciate hearing any suggestions pertaining to this subject. Especially from any LCR people as far as what load you carry and what you think of my choices.
