You are spot on re: the Ruger LCR. The trigger pull is so smooth. Lightweight (13.5 oz. unloaded) double action 5-shot revolver is ideal for CCW. Use .38 Spl +P rounds and it’s a great personal defense package.
I didn’t know what I needed, but man behind the counter knew and said this is what you need. Anyone breaks in my house will get it. I am 5’5” and don’t weigh a lot, but I’m no pansy when I pull that trigger.
