I am curious if anyone has critically compared the S&W Airframe .38 revolver with the Ruger LCR .38? The S&W was the first handgun I ever fired (just a few weeks ago, really), and I was surprised at how well I liked it. I've fired some other types -- my husband owns a Springfield .40 semi-automatic, and a friend let me try out some of his pieces (including a .25 cal -- yuk, a Glock 9 mm -- no problems there, and a .357 Magnum --way too much for me to handle). I've fired all of these with reasonable success for a novice, but I keep coming back to the S&W airframe. It's simple to operate and easy to keep safe. The two models look very similar, but I really don't know very much about these things. Any advice? I think the range at which we shoot can probably rent me the Ruger to try.
