I think that the 22LR would make an excellent snubby trainer. LR is cheap to shoot and can help hone the skills for the .38/.357 snub shooters.
The maggie on the other hand would probably make a more viable nightstand gun, it is however not very cheap to shoot in comparison. They just don't give WMRF away!
I must say, I'm a bit smitten by the LCR, especially after hearing so many people report that the trigger is so nice on the .38.
I want to buy two of them if I can swing it.
