Regarding handling, guess the rest of us are comparing apples to apples. I don't think any small handgun with adequate personal defense loads is going to be "easy" to handle compared broadly to handguns overall -- not to me, anyway.

When folks say it has light or moderate recoil, I assume they are comparing it to other small, light guns/revolvers -- like a j-frame -- shooting personal defense rounds. I don't consider any of those easy to handle overall, and imagine most people would not; but, the LCR seems easier (ie, not as hard) to handle, compared to other similar-type guns.

You are not alone in feeling like your hand takes a beating, though if you shoot it regularly you do get somewhat used to it after a while. Not necessary to put a lot of rounds through it at one session, just get regular practice.
Thanks, and that makes perfect sense. I think practice is key. Like I said, it is getting better everytime. I think my grip is a big factor in this too. I've been studying Jerry Miculec techniques. Night and day difference from where I started.
