    I have one. The recoil is not too bad. I do prefer 110 grain WWB .357 loads.

    Picked one up for a Christmas gift for myself. I really like it, it is a HOOT to SHOOT!, especially .357 thru it. .38 are mild shooting, have not shot any .38 +ps thru it though.

    I did shoot, in one outing, 50 .38s than 50 .357s, and when I was done the Two little fingers on my shooting hand were numb. :supergrin:

    Subsequent range trips, I have kept it to ~ 20-25 of each with No problems.

    I have the .38 but I sometimes wish I had the .357 model instead. Love my LCR though!

    I have both and they are great! Light, nice triggers, nice grips, accurate.

    The .38 is lighter (13.5 oz) and has more recoil. The .357 is heavier (17.1 oz) but definatly not heavy and recoils less. (with both using .38 ammo) I have weighed them and Rugers numbers were accurate.

    .357 magnum varies in recoil depending what load your using. There are plenty that aren't bad at all.

    Pick the one you want and get it.

    Yes you will notice the weight in your pocket, it's 4 oz heavier.

    You will also notice it at the range, with .38's the LCR357 kicks noticably less.
