Hammerless 357 snubbie: LCR or M&P 340?
I am thinking about getting my first snub nose revolver, mainly as a backup gun for my full size M&P 9. I have not held or tested a M&P340, but I have rented a Ruger LCR chambered in 38 Special and found it to be really nice. I liked the ergonomics of it and the trigger was great. On the other hand, I find the looks of the M&P to be a little better (I love the dark appearance) and it's a little lighter so it might be better for carrying. Which one do you guys think would be the better choice? Would either one be good for a hiking gun for protection against wildlife?
