I like my LCR 38 and it's my daily carry. Sure it can be a little painfull to run 100 rounds through but do you think that will matter when you pull it out to save your life? I'm pretty accurate with it. I've practiced shooting it fast and have no problem avoiding short strokes. Had my friend who isn't a gun guy shoot it and he had no issues. My mom had a S&W featherweight of some kind and wasn't very happy with it. Neither of us could shoot it well. She tried my LCR and we went to the gun shop to trade in hers for an LCR. The gun is good but you really need to try them to see what is best for you.
I bought one Taurus firearm. I'll never make that mistake again.
