Get a full-size revolver, say a GP-100 or S&W 686. Much easier to shoot. Learning to shoot a revolver on a short barreled DA-only gun is sort of like learning to ride a motorcycle on a 160-hp liter-class rocket. Sure, you CAN do it, but there are easier ways...

As for the LCR, I didn't find it at all punishing to shoot. It was much more comfortable than the Kel-Tec PF-9 I used to have. But I'm not one to sit down at run 100 rounds at a session in something like that either. (Seriously, if I want to shoot that much in a little pistol I have a Glock 26.)
