To me they are one of the most ugly revolvers in production except maybe the Rhino. BUT. . . .I recently got to shoot a friends and I was quite impressed with the function. I think they trigger pull might be just a touch better than my Smith 637. Maybe it's just the grip on the LCR that enables me to shoot it more accurately. I don't care for the button cylinder latch. I much prefer Smith and Wessons.
If you don't care at all about looks then the LCR would make a great little CC piece. I'll stick with my 637 though.
