    My wife likes the LCR. I was thinking about getting her the XS tritium sights OR the Crimson Trace laser grips. Forget about cost differences.

    What would be most useful to a woman who's not a "gun chick"

    Thanks all for chiming in

    useful is what works best for her. and she wont know what that may be till she tries some on for size. your job is to find a way to expose her to the different items such that she can experience them. and than she can make her decision.

    and what will be her carry method? depending on her carry choices a gun that 'fits' her may not carry well.

    Conventional wisdom is that the CT grips have more felt recoil than the tamers.

    I went with the XS dot upgrade.

    The most useful is what SHE likes and works for HER.

    You are very lucky that your wife is taking an interest in what you like.

    Re: CT

    Hi

    I installed CT sights on my LCP, and am glad that I did. They are very hard to use. It takes two hands to activate the sights. But for that little gun they are a must no matter how hard they are to activate.
    Now about the LCR See this review here, You will notice he says that the stock grip on the LCR is very comfortable, Very true. the best you will ever have. I sent my LCR to XS Sights and had them install the sights for me, well worth the time and money. They are great and extremely accurate. I just made a note to my self to practice shooting the LCR just pointing and shooting without using the sights. I would recommend keeping the very comfortable Hoque grip and getting the XS Sights Here They work just as shown in bottom video, No CT Sights necessary on LCR. And keep the comfortable grip for the wife so that she will enjoy the gun.

    Jim

    Did you buy the LCR yet? If not, you should think it through again, IMO. They have quite a bit of recoil as a penalty for the "light" part, and your wife may not like THAT too much.
