Was at the range test driving my new CZ 75B yesterday and the young man next to had an LCR and an LCP.
Of course we took turn w/each others guns and my feed back is...
LCR-Fairly nice to shoot, lightweight, and the .38 Special is plenty of pop for defensive purposes, however, I own a SS Ruger SP 101 for about the same money and the ability to load UP with .357 mags when I'm hiking in big cat country is IMO an advantage over the LCR.
LCP-To small to shoot accurately, even the small handed ladies present "who printed nice groups with my CZ" could not keep the LCP groups within 12" at 10'.
IMO the LCR is fine for its purpose. The LCP like so many mouse guns is just too small with to long a trigger pull to be usefull much beyond contact distance. And the .380, well, I think your taking your chances when there are a plethora of very shootable yet still compact 9mm's on the market.
I transitioned from an NAA Guardian .32 ACP to a Kahr PM9 about two years ago for this reason.
