    OH I DO!!!!!! I've been hoping they would make one in 357. This pistol could put the brakes on my AR build.....temporarily.

    I was looking at sales flyers for the local gun store and all the compacts for sale said not in Reseda Store. That’s the store near me. I went down to ask why. I did not know this, but they can't sell any gun under four inches in length in LA county. I can buy this revolver outside LA and own it living in LA, but I can't buy it in LA.

    Efffin Stupid.

    Hmmmmm.....I would think with the weighing just over 17 oz. and a barrel length a tad under 2 inches, it would be like lighting a M-80 firecracker in your hand. :eek:

    But, it would be doable. :)

    I have been hoping for a 357 elsie, looks like only a few oz heavier than the 38.
    A handful of dynamite, no doubt. But should make an awesome ccw

    I expect to see a lot of LCR .38s on the market shortly - may have to get one if the price is right...

    You'll probably see alot of barely used 357 LCR's for sale not much after.
    Fired once, dropped once:D

    I was shooting next to a fella about 2 years ago that was trying out his brand new S&W Scandium snubby .357 with full power magnum loads. He made it through a single cylinder and left the range a shaken guy to be sure. In a light pocket revolver, .38 +P is more than enough for me. My home defense .357s are loaded with .38 +Ps as well as I really do value my hearing should I have to deploy one of them in the house...

    If I was buying the LCR I'd get the 357 and put Speer short barrel 38 +Ps in it--the extra 4 onces would make it more pleasant to shoot, probably more accurate because of better control, and it's the same width as the 38--a great BUG.

    That's the truth! How many barely used 44s do you see come up for sale?

    NGIB, the fact that your introduced this to me make it your fault that I now NEED to buy another pistol and a carry holster. My wife is not going to be happy with you at all!

    Is 17 ounces the best compromise between magnum loads and carry-ability?

    Really snappy Jo. The 9mm is much easier to shoot quickly & accurately.

    BTW, it's my job to make sure y'all buy as many guns as I do...

    Well you have suceeded my friend. I haven't been able to find one online so I guess I have some time to save up. I need another 357 like a hole in my head but the caliber is just so hard to resists.
