Why ??
Can you use it for sports ??

Why don't you come on down to Chile,.... it's legal here,.... ( hmm perhaps a bad choice after all - to many "Huevones" around here,....hehheeh)

It's not the caliber that's banned, it's the expanding bullets. We can't use any sort of hollow point or expanding projectile for self defense, we can use them for target practie or hunting.

That rules out all the good .38 +p options. We can only use the old lead round nose .38s, which don't have a good track record.

Oh yeah. The only downside, not really though, is all your friends want to handle and shoot it.

The LCR is way too small and way to light, My daily carry gun is a Para 7-45 5" 1911, but I carried .38 and .357 revolvers (department issue) for years. I still have a 2" six shot Colt Detective Special, but I don't carry it (too small). I still carry a wheel gun occasionally, but it is a custom S&W 686 Plus (seven shot) 4" .357 in a Bianchi X-15 holster with two speed loaders.

I'm still wanting one, thanks to this thread back to the top of the list. Never see them at the gun shows used (always hoping to save a buck, or trade). Seems like those that have them are keeping em.
