    I posted a report on my new LCR a few weeks ago, and had a chance to shoot it again today. Still 100 % reliable. Best news is I'm slowly learning the trigger pull and have better, but not really that good, groups as a result. Going to take a lot of practice to master this beauty. I found that I can reliably hit steel plate targets at 25 yards standing with any of the different types of ammo I've tried, which is a pretty good confidence builder.

    I also tried out the Golden Saber 125 +P that I forgot last time. I find that, in my hands at least ,the Golden Saber is the most accurate of the rounds I've tried in this little beast. I like it better than the Speer Short Barrel 135 gr. GDHP +P, the Rem-UMC 125 gr. SJHP +P, or my own 148 gr. wadcutters.

    8 inch plate at 25?

    That is pretty good for a snubby ...

    It's more like 12" with a 4" swinging insert. But yeah, the LCR gets the job done.

    Yeah I fired one recently and was suprised the trigger was really quite smooth. Do you own any other snubbies? Just curious as to how you felt the recoil compared...

    I've got a half dozen models of snub nose revolvers (S & W, Ruger) the LCR is the most pleasant to shoot in IMO.
