Ruger got it right with this one... LCP not so much but the LCR is sexy! just be prepared when shooting +P it has quite a snap
Another friend of mine has a Ruger SP101. It's a 5 shot stainless 357 mag. Not much bigger than a J frame Smith but much heavier. 38+P loads in it packed a pretty good punch. The LCR weighs about half of a SP101. I can see it being real "snappy".
