Default Lcr .357

Just saw this and I for one do not want to shoot it with full power loads...

OH I DO!!!!!! I've been hoping they would make one in 357. This pistol could put the brakes on my AR build.....temporarily.

I can't believe you haven’t bought one yet.

I was looking at sales flyers for the local gun store and all the compacts for sale said not in Reseda Store. That’s the store near me. I went down to ask why. I did not know this, but they can't sell any gun under four inches in length in LA county. I can buy this revolver outside LA and own it living in LA, but I can't buy it in LA.

Efffin Stupid.

Hmmmmm.....I would think with the weighing just over 17 oz. and a barrel length a tad under 2 inches, it would be like lighting a M-80 firecracker in your hand.

But, it would be doable.

I have been hoping for a 357 elsie, looks like only a few oz heavier than the 38.
A handful of dynamite, no doubt. But should make an awesome ccw

I expect to see a lot of LCR .38s on the market shortly - may have to get one if the price is right...

You'll probably see alot of barely used 357 LCR's for sale not much after.
Fired once, dropped once

I was shooting next to a fella about 2 years ago that was trying out his brand new S&W Scandium snubby .357 with full power magnum loads. He made it through a single cylinder and left the range a shaken guy to be sure. In a light pocket revolver, .38 +P is more than enough for me. My home defense .357s are loaded with .38 +Ps as well as I really do value my hearing should I have to deploy one of them in the house...
