    I'd say it has potential for a very practical carry revolver.

    I got one a few months back, as a nightstand gun for my wife. At first, I really loved shooting it. Now, it sometimes becomes a bit aggravating. After firing a few rounds, it becomes uncomfortable to shoot. Plus, I am really puzzled as to why I am so extremely inaccurate with this gun. I can't hit squat with this dang thing. I might as well throw it at a bad guy, because I sure wouldn't hit him with a round. I shoot Federal 115 gr. FMJ or Remington UMC at the range. Could that be a problem?

    I bought mine in 10/09 and even though I haven't fired it a lot, I have not had any real problems with it. I seem to think it is as accurate as any 2 inch barrel can be. It is not real accurate at 25 yards.

    The only problem I have had is that while shooting it one day, the "ejector" unscrewed and I could not get the cylinder to open. Once I figgured it out and screwed the thing back in, I'v had no other problems with it at all.

    I've read several reviews that indicate the polymer portions do a very good job of attenuating felt recoil, making the LCR a little more enjoyable to shoot than some of the other very lightweight snubbies, like the Scandium Smiths. It shor is butt-ugly though.

    Had the LCR .38 with CR grips and hi-viz front sight. Shoots great and is very light. Sold it and just bought the LCR .357. No CT grips but did add the Hi-Viz. Also is a good shooter and my wife has once again, claimed it for herself.
