I have a S&W 642, and a friend has an LCR. I shot them both side by side, and I didn't notice any difference in recoil.

My .38 LCR is no problem. My sons S&W 638 is not pleasant at all.

Being my first revolver, i was shocked at the recoil. I have only shot the remington sjhp +p because they were on sale for 14.99 a box o 50. Looking forward to a beefier revolver in the future. Maybe Taurus 608

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.)

For low recoil, get any brand of 148gr wadcutters. Seriously, they have a lot less recoil because they are lower velocity for target shooting.

Well, I do shoot two hundred rounds of 125 grain 357s through my snubby, too.

Well I'm not 373 pounds, and cast a shadow that covers a VW Beetle! Glad your wife is more manly than me!

Sorry, couldn't resist!

Ballistic tables aside, I've always questioned just how much "better" +P's are from a two-inch tube...

I carry an Airweight Bodyguard with Federal Nyclad 125 grain non +P and I can dump 5into the 10X faster than I can with ANY +P out there.

I have the LCR in .357 magnum and it batters the big joint of my thumb. I have no problems when I shoot 38 specials in the little pistol.
