Ruger makes the LCR with laser grips you can get factory installed. Very nice option.

They come in .38 special+p or .357 magnum. I would go for the .357 as it can shoot either .38 special or .357 magnum. A little more cost up front and a little heavier, but it will be more flexible on the ammo. You can use .38 special for range practice and then load up .38+p or .357 magnum for self defense.

My favorite concealed carry weapon is a Charter Arms Bulldog 44 loaded with 200 grain Corbon DPX hollowpoints.

How well does the Ruger LCR 357 conceal in a front pants pocket?

I sometimes carry a S&W 442 in front pocket holster. That isn't my first choice, but sometimes situations drive clothing. The 442 hides well. Shoots well enough for me up close. But I really don't care much for it personally. The grip is a bit small for my hand and the gun is so light that the felt recoil is uncomfortable. About one box of regular .38s at the range and I'm ready to put it away. Forget +P for me. But it is reliable, my wife loves it (and is surprisingly good with it), and it will get the job done.

I like the S & W 642CT airweight. Light weight revolver with the Crimson Trace. Hides great.

That is pretty much the format for the LCR, small, light weight makes it pretty easy to conceal. If you can ball up your fist while it is in your pocket and pull it out that way, then the LCR should be fine in a good pocket holster. Go to a gun shop and ask to try one in your pocket, the key here is to ask permission first. They might even let you try it with a new holster too.

I carry an LCR in a front pants pocket, in a Remora holster, and it looks like I'm carrying a wallet in that pocket. And the Remora also lets you move it IWB.
