    I think that this title says it all! Why not for god sake! Hehe well it would make this pistol so much better for carry. I think they would also look great and their factory grips are as sticky as a wet lolly pop in my pocket. Im sure ruger would make a killing on this product. It just doesnt make sense to me!!! Does anyone else feel this way?

    I tried wood grips on my M&P340 and dang did they hurt like heck.

    The LCR boot grip is very usable, hard on the side so that it doesn't drag and it still has a small cushion in the grip.

    I like wood grips but the LCR is kinda ugly. No sense in putting lipstick on a pig.

    ^ agree. If I want a gun without an exposed hammer or without wood grips, I'll get one of those semi-auto plastic thingies.

    my thoughts exactly. the LCR is, imo, the best of the pocket snubs... but it is also the ugliest.

    I haven't seen one yet that could be pocket carried due to overly large grips.

    I may be a bit biased but I own an LCR and it's a respectable gun. I find it to be difficult to carry. I carry a small frame wheelgun with non-wrap around polymer grips (sometimes pearlite). They are smaller for any kind of carry and I've never had my hands hurt after firing. In a self defense situation-felt recoil would be the last thing on my mind.

    Recoil may be the last thing on your mind, but if a grip design does not allow you to recover from recoil and get your sights back on target asap, the consequences could be potentially dire.

    I have the LCR 357. If it had wood grips it would hurt like hell to shoot. The Tamer Grip makes the 17oz. gun painless to shoot 357 125 grain ammo. I enjoy shooting this gun as it is and carry it Daly as backup to my SP101. I don't have a problem drawing it from my off hand pocket or using speed loaders.

    The closest I've seen is Charter Arms' Police Undercover in .38. And I think Rossi makes a small-framed sixshooter in .357. Neither have the light weight or modern look of the LCR, though.

    I'm surprised hardly anyone makes wood grips for the LCR; it's one of the only reasons I have a SP101 instead.
