Early December I bought a used LCR 9 from LGS. It came with a Bianchi oswb holster, 2 extra grips. Both extra grips were Hogue, one was a shorter grip than stock the other was a G10 grip. On the first outing I had the stock Hogue "Tamer" grip on it. The grip screw worked loose. This was no fault of Ruger. I started ammo trials with Blazer Brass 115 gr ball. The Blazer was key holing and I had one round kick a bullet out of the case locking up the cylinder out of 50. Next up was the Federal HST 124gr Law enforcement tactical. It made nice round holes. On the next range trip I changed the grip to the Hogue G10 grip. This trip I took American Eagle 115gr FMJ, Winchester115 gr FMJ, Tulammo 115gr FMJ steel case, Magtech 124gr FMJ. First up was the Tulammo. Slight key hole. How ever I had to pry all 5 cases out of the cylinder with my pocket knife. Not going to try that again. The other 3 brands had slight key holes. The G10 grip was better that the stock Tamer grip as far as holding the LCR how ever with nothing Cushing it seemed slippery and was not real comfortable to shoot. I have a Pachmayr Diamond Pro grip coming. All shots were at 21 feet. At 1.87" barrel it's not a bullseye gun. I managed to keep all rounds on the silhouette target. I purchased a Blade Tech iwb "Klipt" holster and it Carrys well in it.
