The LCR is a great idea. It weighs .2 (that's point-two) ounces more than the S&W M&P 340 Scandium and is a neat little contraption rated for .38 spl +p. If you have .38 spl. ammo lying around, I'm sure this would be a fun way to get rid of some and have a small weapon with more umpf than the .380ACP. I'd feel safer carrying the LCR.
