I'm shopping for a J-frame sized revolver for off-side pocket carry, as a reliable contact distance BUG. Carry ammo will most likley be 38 +P. Thinking about the LCR 357 - mostly for additional 4 oz over LCR 38 and the possibility of softer shooting. While I don't plan to carry or shoot 357 ammo, I suppose that could help resale if I ever get rid of it. Reviews of the LCR 38 seems to say much softer shooting than comparable weight J-frame Smiths. Hoping the additional 4 oz will tame +P loads a bit. Also plan to put CT laser grips on it, which aren't quite as recoil-damening as the Hogue tamers. So question is what others think of LCR 357 with 38 +P and CTs as off-hand BUG, and what other alternatives? I really don't want to go up to steel frame J's for weight reasons.
