Sorry to hear about your LCR woes ... I tried one at a gunstore and was very disappointed in the trigger action, it felt gritty, long and uncomfortable compared to my Smith 637, so I passed ... I dry-fire the Smith all the time and it continues to soldier on ...
"The gun has been called the great equalizer ... It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." --Ronald Reagan
