Finally!
 
I finally ordered my first firearm! An LCR .38 special with the C.T. grip. If my wife and I both like it we will get another. She wanted the LC .380 but struggled with the slide a little. Maybe in the future, we will see. Can't wait to break it in!

Grats,
I am sure you will like it.

My wife has been carrying one ,since they were introduced, acouple years ago I think.
I can tell you, it is the most accurate snubby Ive ever shot, and has the best trigger out there.
Good choice.

A friend of ours is a former law enforcement officer and trainer. He is going to give us some training and let us practice on his range. It's good to know people.

This is a common complaint with female shooters but can usually be addressed through proper technique.

Have her check this link out and let her try again. ;)

I will have to have her try that. I told her we can get her a semi auto to practice with. But for now the revolver will be what she carries.

Congrats on the purchase. I've thought about getting one in .357. I've heard they're decent guns for the money. We look forward to pictures and a range report!

Call me crazy! I ordered the LCR .357 for myself last night. Hopefully we can hit the range with them next week. Starting the wife out on a .22. Then she's going to move up to the .38. Thanks everyone for the. I will report on how we shoot after they come in. Probably next week sometime.
