I got the LCR 38 spl with XS tritium sight last August. I got it for my daughter. She liked it when she tried it in the shop. I was not too keen on a plastic framed revolver, however after using it, I like it a lot now. It is certainly light weight. The tritium sight is great at night. I carry it frequently at night around the farm when I can not see regular sights. It is so light weight that I will forget that it is there. Oh, my daughter still likes it and one of the other daughters is taken with it too so I may buy her another one(she was using an SP101). It is accurate at spitting distance=20 feet. Not as good as the 3" SP101 at longer distance. The XS sight is very easy to see. I think the extra money for that sight is worth it.Want some info on the 2 guns. Not sure which one to buy. I'm sure both are great guns but was looking for anyone that can chime in that owns one. Which one and why? Thanks
It's ironic that Smith's little 38 seems tougher to me than the plastic Ruger. Usually, Ruger's stuff is made tough.
go with the Smith. As for a Bodyguard, I'm not huge into those. Yet more plastic and why? I guess you've owned one so you're one up on me. But Ive watched a lot of gun scribes shoot it on tv(some diehard smith guys) and they said it was the most accurate snuuby they ever shot--and had the best trigger. It's also +p rated. You can bet Ruger has tried to blow them up. Ruger and weak ? Not likely!
