Just put one of these bad boys in layaway today. Can't wait to pick her up and get her in the CC rotation.

I am surprised they didn't come out with it in 9mm first. For as much 38 special ammo sold you would think the price would come down closer to 9mm pricing. Same thing for 380.
Congrats on the LCR.
My wife carries the original(hammerless) LCR , since they came out with it.
I really enjoy shooting it also, great trigger and is VERY accurate at 10-15 yrds.
Only question I have, just curiosity, why would I not buy the LCR 357, and shoot .38s, but have the capacity to shoot 357 ?
It on weighs 3-4 oz more.
Have you shot Snubs before? It takes a while with a lot of practice. I did a lot of dry fire practice just to keep the front sight steady when pulling the trigger. I do not claim to be a expert. I feel I am a fare shot. I could hit a paper plate with a ok group at 50'. Maybe not that great but, I'm not hunting with a 2".Well I want to like this little revolver. I really do. It's very light and easy to pack around, pretty much rustproof and disappears in the Simply Rugged holster I got for it. (as in you can forget it's there) The problem is with me, I guess. I simply can't shoot very well with it. I don't know if it's the weight or the grip or what but the accuracy I expect isn't there for me. I can shoot about the same in double action fast as I can slowly in single action and that's never happened with any gun I've ever owned. I've tried several different loads without much difference. It would be fine for a close range defensive encounter but not for a woods gun, which is what I got it for.. I'm not going to give up on it until I'm sure I can't make it shoot better.
The other thing I'm not crazy about is the "no disassembly required or advised" aspect. This should be a major selling point to many but I'm one of those people who love to see the insides of things. Most of my new handguns are stripped down and cleaned and relubed before they leave the house. Boys gotta play
I hope it works out for you, good luck.Yes, I have shot many small guns before. Not LCR's, but j frames, LCPs and other tiny 380 semis. I have a P380 in my front right pocket almost always. I can get them all to group nicely at 7 to 15 yards. That's what is so disappointing. This is a bigger gun, with a hand filling grip and a longer 3" barrel with good sights. In single action mode, standing, I expect to hit an apple every shot at 10 yards. Not a soccer ball. Like I said I'm not going to give up on it until I'm sure its just me. Possibly I will have to change the grip. I will try it off a rest when the weather gets better.
