I really like my .38 Spec LCR. I sold my 642 after dry firing one in a LGS a couple years back. The smooth trigger action sold me on it.
I did have some QC issues with my first LCR, but Ruger took it back and sent me a new gun. I went straight to the range (live close by) and tested it. Perfect. Since then, I shoot it a couple times a month, and it continues to be one of my favorite and trusted carry guns.
