Default .357 magnum snubbie

Has anybody ever shot the lcr in .357? I know most lcr's are .38 special but I like the idea of some more versatility. Are there other small carry .357s I should be looking at. I like the lightness of the lcr

I have one and it is very solid.

Shooting .38's and +p out it isn't bad at all. A full power magnum round stings a bit, but is still controllable.

I had a thread similar to this not to long ago comparing the SW642 and the lcr. I ended up getting the lcr. Bad news is I am out of town until the end of Aug so I won't get to shoot it until then (which is killing me). After shooting multiple snubs at the range though, the lcr just seemed like the best one. By far the best trigger, but also seemed more comfortable and more accurate.

Cool I was wondering about the recoil of those light revolvers. They only come in a 5 shot configuration correct?

S&w 340 Pd. S&w 60 and Taurus 605.

The 60 and 605 being stainless are easy to control and not too abusive. The 340pd will wear you out. Not a bullseye gun.

All very good choices for carry.

Have one, love it. It's a handful with .357's but it's managable. Great trigger too. Keep in mind, it's not the best range gun in the world, just a point 'n' shooter.

Hmm I do love the look of a stainless revolver so sexy! How do you all feel about hammer vs hammer less on a gun like these mentioned?

I have two pocket carry revolvers, a Taurus 605 357 magnum, and a Charter Arms Bulldog 44 Special. The Bulldog is a DAO (aka 'hammerless"), the 605 has a regular hammer.
The 357 puts a smile on the face of people who have never shot one before, and yes, it stings even with rubber grips.
Drawing a hammer gun from a front pocket holding the thumb on the hammer spur reduces snagging on the pocket.

All depends on where and how you want to carry it. In a pocket or ankle a shrouded hammer won't typically catch on clothing. On the belt, either or...ish. That's where the personal preferences come into play... I would think with the shrouded hammer it would be less inclined to collect lint and dirt in the moving parts...again, all depends on where you want to carry it...

Even for a carry gun i prefer a hammer. For purely cosmetic reasons i think the hammer looks better. I dont Particularly dislike striker guns, its just my personal preference to have a hammer for SA options.
