Any reason you would choose the LCR over a S&W Airweight?

I can't answer for him, but I like the sights and trigger on the lcr better, both my father and my grandmother own one. Plus Ruger it's a great company just like Smith and Wesson

You may laugh, but lately I've gone retro.

I found a really nice

little 9-shot 22LR revolver.

You can, too.

I like the Kimber ultra II pistols for carrying a 45 acp. For shooting a 45 ACP I prefer the plain old 1911. My brother has a Kimber Ultra II. It is a good shooting little pistol. If you have to have a 45 ACP for a SD carry weapon the little Kimber is arguably the best gun on the market.

The Colt Officers 1911 shoots as well as the Kimber. But it lacks the night sights and other creature comforts that are standard equipment on the Kimber. Plus you might pay more for the Colt.

Another vote for the XDS. My girlfriend shoots mine and she did the range portion for her CCL with it.

Well, I've narrowed it down to two guns....with some help from my wife.....(replace help with strongly suggest)
My first pick was the Sig P238, I want a light gun for carry and Sig's seem to be a good pick. I also was looking at a revolver, the S&W 637 to be more precise. Well to make a long story short, my wife prefers the revolver. She has the 686 and a little Heritage rough rider that I bought for her. And since the last gun we bought was an auto, she thinks it's time for another revolver. Who am I to argue? Anyway, she's got a CC purse and she's quite proficient at the range.

You must be new here. I don't show pictures of my guns.

Google Hi-Standard Sentinel R-101.
