carry 24/7....maybe some more practice is necessary? I've never been kicked by a mule but have been kicked by a horse. I can tell you that the recoil impulse from the LCR, even with +P ammo, is not even close to what a good horse can deliver.
That being said, here is a target I was shooting while dialing in the Crimson Trace laser
. I consider the LCR to be a self defense gun....and I don't see this group size being a problem when the target would typically be center of mass. What kind of accuracy are you experiencing with yours?
