I'd really like a lighter snub. I love my 640 but in summer I'm wearin swim trunks or basketball shorts about all the time. I have a Keltec P3AT that I carry in a small Desantis IWB that I clip on my shorts. Light. But not the most well made gun. Its reliable. But, there's alot of buts... I remember having a scandium 44mag and a snub in 357. Both were great to carry but sucked to shoot. Even with specials a day at the range was a struggle. S&W really doesn't make anything in 22mag and my price range. So it's Ruger. I've only dry fired a LCR and I didn't hate it. I could carry it in State Forests (rimfire only) here. Woodchuck, yotes, porcupine & skunk are open all summer. Ample pot filling opportunity it would be dual use. I would carry it on hikes and walking out in the world. Something I could put in my pocket and fish the ponds in that forest & IF I saw a critter I could take it. Then on the way home I don't feel unarmed stopping at 7/11 or Walmart AND I don't have to leave a pack with a rifle in it in my car. How's the DA pull? Would you get the LCRX over the LCR? Does it shoot to the sights? Misfires? How well does it eject the empties? I know alot of folks are not going to like it (22mag) for SD, I'm ok with it. Not looking to argue. Id like a 327 Fed more but I have 2x more use for the 22mag.
