You kinda answered your own topic. Its a carry gun and you like the trigger on the lcr. Looks are irrelevent in a self defense firearm. What's important is, is it a gun you will carry and do you like the controls and can hit with it. Buying a gun your staking your life on because it looks cool is prolly not a wise decision making step.
Get the one that feels good and has controls and grip and functions how you want.
