Have you tried the SR9C in small of back position? I love revolvers but putting one in your waistband is like shoplifting turnips. If you want to carry a revolver I would seriously look into a Galco Miami Classic shoulder rig and plan on wearing a covering garment. The inverted shoulder rig was originally invented for ladies to carry with. just reach under the off breast, grab the handle and you're in business. At least that's what I was told.

I love my S&W Lady Smiths, both of them. I have both the revolver and the Semi. I carried the Revolver for years and she never let me down. The Semi is a fairly new member of the family but they get along well.

Personally, I like Smith triggers better, but I have shot an LCR, and it was pretty nice.

If you're concerned more with the size than the weight, I'd agree with an earlier poster about the Ruger SP101. Its dimensions are similar to the revolvers you mentioned, but it's heavier, which makes for smoother shooting.

My wife prefers SOB carry IWB, but she carries a single-stack semi.

I need all the help I can get Yeah... I'm not shaped like a board. but my back is fairly straight so I have considered a SOB carry method or a kidney position just right of the center of my back...

My shoulder rig has worked fairly well for me but it gets pretty hot here during the summer which is why I'm looking for a new method of carry, not necessarily why I'm looking for a new gun though (that may be an disease for which there is no cure) I actually found that my breasts get in the way in a cross draw situation, the only thing that really bothered me about my shoulder holster...

Know your limits; exceed them often

That which does not kill me had better run pretty damn fast.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

The Ruger LCR and the S&W airweights are both fine choices. I've shot both a great deal when looking for a summer/casual carry CC pistol. I purchased a S&W 642 Centennial, in part because I found one NIB before I found a LCR. It's a good pistol with an internal hammer (even less to snag on), stainless steel and aluminum construction and truly light weight.

Good luck and let us know what you decide to buy.

Just posted this in another thread. Looks like Will beat me to this one.

You should take a look at wheel guns.
