The LCR is excellent and has a better trigger than most J-frames.
I pocket carry it all the time in slacks or even blue jeans. And I'm not Mr. baggy jeans guy. I have tendonitis in my hands and really don't enjoy shooting hot 357s in it. But the general opinion is that it's not as bad in recoil as the comparable weight J-frames. I have shot sub 2.5" 5 shot groups at 20 yards standing unsupported with 357s, but average closer to 3.5" at 20 yds; so accuracy is not an issue. I am a Ruger and Smith guy, so I think I'm fairly unbiased.
