    I am flying back from St. Louis right now (love free in flight wireless) and I was unable to take anything with me because we didn't want to check any bags (just a quick weekend trip to surprise my big brother for his 40th).

    My brother let me carry his LCR while we were up there. Carried it in an ankle holster for a bit and it was pretty comfortable but with jeans I felt like it printed a bit (maybe a different rig would have been better).....I carried it mostly in a pocket holster and it was great....didn't even know it was there.

    I would definitely recommend it as a BUG or for something for deep concealment....

    That's my :2cents: on the LCR....

    Wife uses a Taurus 85. Wheel guns seems to be the most reliable.

    I thought the LCR was a auto 380 Edit the auto is the LCP

    That's the LCP.

    LcP = "pistol" = semi-auto.

    LcR = "revolver" = not a "pistol" in some people's minds.

    I used to get them mixed up all the time.

    I have a 442 which i am assuming is near the sam size as the LCR. I dont see how you can pocket carry and be comfy with it. Unless you are a bigger guy and have bigger pockets. I can stand having it in my pocket. Normally carry it in an ankle holster.

    I've carried a 442 in my pocket too....didn't bother me at all and I am not a big guy. Just 6' 9" 295.....just kidding. It does take a little getting used to but it was better than carrying nothing (the LCR) and that was the other option for the weekend. My KelTec is definitely a better pocket piece.
