I like the idea of keeping everything clean with the shrouded hammer. I guess I just need one of each! I know the lcr is very light how does it compare with a stainless Taurus 605 or s&w 60? I know the stainless will be heavier but they are so beautiful!

Now you're talkin'!! With guns and ammo, more is ALWAYS better!!

I don't have enough trigger time on a steel framed snub to give you any solid answers but physics dictates the weight will absorb some <---key word there...some recoil. .357 is a pretty hefty load, the increase of a few ounces will only do so much.

Can you test drive any at a nearby range? That'd give you the best answers...

I would love to rent every gun out there but by the time you rent something and out a few rounds through it I could have bought a lot of ammo for myself...

I w like to try Rugers DAO but even if they have duplicated a tuned SW - I w still vote for the hammer. You have the option to go SA/DA.

I don't pocket carry but it was good to hear about a drawing technique in case I do. The principle arguments for going hammerless were the snagging issue and if used for typical SD, no time for hammer anyway - It's not a range queen.

My counter - I still want the option plus I like to plink at longer ranges and SA helps a lot.

I don't buy the lint thing...but if it was a true competitive advantage, it w already be highlighted on marketing literature.

Forget the Tuperware guns and get you a real classic. I carry the one with the magna grips and Tyler grip adapter frequently. I've got an IWB, OWB, and shoulder holster that I use for it. .357s are no big deal to shoot out of either of these guns.

Wow. No mention of the SP101. I have a bobbed hammer DAO SP101 with a tuned trigger. Not a light weight at 25 oz but a very nice revolver.

My wife owns and shoots the LCR .38 and I have the LCR .357 mag.
I love practically everything about my LCR .357. I can shoot .38 spl and .38 +p and .357 mags if I want to. for conceal carry, I like to keep either the Buffalo Bore .38 spl 150 gr Hard Cast Wadcutters or the Carbon DPX .38 +P loaded in it. I love the trigger press and the light weight for carry.

What was the reasoning for you getting a .357 and a .38? Why not just get 2 .357's and be done?

My daughter has one and loves it. It gets a regular diet of .357 Gold Dots. She believes in practice what you carry. So far there is no visible damage to the weapon or her hands.
