I don't see any point to a pocket revolver with an exposed hammer. I'll stick with the hammerless original.

I do. Some folks just want it, and want it their way. Sometimes You WANT someone to hear you cock that Hammer......the same way you want them to hear the rack of a Pump Shotgun....
I got the Email the other day. I'm a Ruger fan,..

My NAA Pug has an exposed hammer and I carry it in my pocket all the time. Never has been a problem.

>>Never was a fan of the DAO; always seemed too limiting and I've never had an issue w catching on clothing<<

My sentiments exactly! I have an LCR that's still NIB, and I intend to sell it off in favor of an LCRX. To each his own!

Since this is a carry weapon I would really have no use for the hammer on it. I have a hammerless 357 LCR and I love it. I don't require single action in this revolver.

Well, I did indeed just order one! Just couldn't help myself. This gun addiction thing is bad! I'm not predicting a cure!

I picked up my new LCRX a couple of days ago, and my unfired LCR is at the gun shop on consignment. Again, to each his own.

I own an LCR in .38, and when I got the email about the LCRx all I could say is you could of done that last year. If so, I would of bought the LCRx. So I looked all over for one in a store, and when I found one, I changed my mind. The hammer is very small, and the spring is so stiff that I did not like it. It would really be a task to pull that back in a hurry. So I am real happy with my LCR just the way it is.

Here's the thing... you don't have to pull it back in a hurry. But, it's nice to have the option.

I disagree wholeheartedly. The hammer does nothing to hamper the DA function and I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. The thing thet kept me away from the LCR was the DAO, once they made it right I was all over it. There is nothing not to love about this gun.
