Best trigger in a DAO platform straight out of the box...IMHO

It's a point n shoot gun, not the best range gun in the world, but it's still good for some grins, especially shooting .357's...(she's got a bit of a bite!!)

It's one of my EDC's and I wouldn't trust my life to it if it weren't reliable...

IIRC it's still going for around $550, maybe less used...

Get it chambered in .357 to give you the option of using .38's and .357...

Ruger has come out with an exposed hammer model now as well, I'm sure it's just as good, depending on your carry method...

My Lgs has the hammer LCRx and LCR in 38+P for $416.

My wifes CCW is a LCR ,
best DOA trigger of any, and VERY accurate out to 7 yrds.

Never a problem .

I've had mine for a couple years now. A great trigger. Mine has a ct laser grip,which makes point and shoot a breeze. It's a very light gun,so even 38's are a bit snappy,

I have the LCR 357. Great little gun. Very accurate, reliable and easy to carry. The slight weight increase in the 357 model makes 38 Special a dream to shoot. Would highly recommend it.

I would only shoot a little bit of 357 ammo in the LCR. When the LCR was first introduced every law enforcement officer in the area bought one. Within a year or so every law enforcement officer in the area was trying to sell an LCR. The only officer I know that still has an LCR works undercover. He has guns concealed everywhere on his body and two long guns in the trunk of his car.

Why did everyone sell the LCR?

I just shot the LCR and LC9 and was very impressed with both! Neither one is a target pistol obviously and at 10 yards was a challenge to hit the bullseye. Both had good triggers, weighed about the same loaded. I came to the conclusion that a guy should have both for CCW as both should get the job done, and each has advantages and disadvantages.
