    Well, if you get the one chambered in .357, then you can kill two birds with one stone. That is, you can run the .38 Special as well. JMHO.

    I have been reading up on the .357 Sig. I think some versions of semi-auto's shooting the .357 Sig will get ballistics in the ranges you guys are talking about here. I wonder if it isn't a better idea to shoot .357 Sig in a barrel/chamber designed for it than shooting +p and +p+ in 9 mm barrels. But any cartridges with energies in this range work best in guns of some size. That is what I am doing.

    LCR in .357 with the Hogue grips using Hornady Critical Defense is more than manageable. It's what I carry without ANY concerns.

    I have the Ruger 357 and I am more than pleased. I pocket carry it without any problems. I of course practice mostly with 38 spec and a little +P and 357 magnum at he end of the range session. Now just because a person doesn't like to shoot magnum rounds in the LCR doesn't make him a sissy. I myself don't have a problem with it but everyone's different and that's a good thing. This is the first revolver I have owned in over 25 years and I have really missed them.

    I carry a Ruger SR40C, but the Ruger LCR in either 38 or 357 is really the ultimate in utter reliability for concealed carry. It literally disappears when you drop it in your pocket. We bought my girl friend one. It's also an excellent range/woods gun. Just plain fun to shoot !

    Glad to read this thread. My wife likes revolvers better than semiautos. Most da trigger pulls are hard but it seems the lcr is very smooth. I'm gonna have to go test one. If I got her one I would still get the 357 for better strength and durability and the extra 4 oz should help a bit on recoil for her

    Ruger LCR (.357 mag or .38 Special)

    YMMV
    Just remember, a semi auto with 3" bbl includes the chamber in that length. So actual "barrel" on my M&P9c is the same as my 605 with a 2-1/4" bbl.

    If you want one revolver, it would be a .357. One reason to pick this model is you have an option to use .357 or .38. As someone mentioned, a .357 will be worth more than a .38 in same condition. But, I'm sure you are like me and have no desire to sell.

    What I buy I plan on keeping.

    My wife bought the LCR .357 with the Crimson Trace Lasergrips on it from Shooters Plus for her CCW. She really likes it. She practices with .38 but carries with .357.

    Do you want to be shot with any of them? I carry a full sized 1911 in .45 and honestly don't feel like it's heavy at all. I don't even notice the weight. I love the LCR because it will fit in my pocket not being noticed. Wonderful.

    I have the .357 love it not what you would expect from a snubbie IMHO buy the 357 that way you can have a choice of ammo, its not a big difference in price and if you like 38+p then you can shoot it but you will still have the option of moving up to a more powerful round jmho
