Was able to locate two LCRs in 357 for customers and one of the customers just happened to be a friend of mine. This being said you all know that his gun was not leaving the store without me test driveing it, and all I can say is hot damned. The 357 is a little heavier that the .38, although, the DA trigger is one of the best yet IMHO and there is no noticeable differences in trigger pull between the two models. Very accurate at 21 feet and the recoil in most manageable and was a pleasure to shoot in my big old hands. I'm ordering mine with the laser grip option as I feel sight acquisition will be faster from the second and third position. Overall as a NIB gun I feel this one is a must have.
