That is interesting that there are so many used LCRs for sale. I wouldn't want to part with mine. I was going to get rid of the crimson trace and replace with Hogue grips only because of the recoil, but that was short sighted on my part (no pun intended). The crimson trace allows me to aim without looking down the barrel from a cover position or from a draw position. I also get good practice feedback when carrying it around the house.
It is a snappy rascal but I really like this gun.
