LCRx

I upgraded from LCR to LCRx.

I like it so far and doing snapcap dryfiring I believe the trigger in SA is better than the LCR DAO trigger.

    Is 9000 posts the cut off point for exemption to the fine for no pics?

    Probably 30,000; but, all posts is all versions of the forum count.

    I don't know how many I have so for you I'll go take a pic.

    I'd like to see it Ned, we went to a gun show today and the only thing that fit her hand was a Kimber, which ain't gonna happen anytime soon.

    Looks good man, btw did they allow you to retire gracefully after they caught you with all those P-38s?

    You mean in the jar, those are shark's teeth we found on the beach when we lived at the Naval Research Lab Chesapeake Beach, Md.

    I was assigned to DCS Air at HQTRS USMC

    Oh those, I was buying something from the Sportsmanguide and added them to the order; probably 20 yrs ago.

    Well those things look a lot older than 20 years. BTW, what holster do you use for CCW with your 29? And it is a 4" er i believe? And do you carry I or O the WB?

    Crude homemade.

    Technically I carry OWB with a Galco DAO holster for a 6.5" N frame when going to the Forest, but, it is a poor job and not intended to entirely conceal it, just keep the man with a gun
    call from being made going the 1/2 mile through town to the forest gate. Though an EX LG tall shirt covers it pretty well.

    The homemade one is IAW, I use it some on our walk in winter, not really that often.

    I have a OWB Galco combat Master for an L frame that will work with a speed six, GP 100, or even the 629 and it is a 4" barrel.

    I shot it and it shot as would be expected from a 1& 7/8" barrel.
    7- 12 yds and it was moment of BG.

    With the hammer back [SA] I could hit the black---,8,9& 10 ring.
    In DA I hit left of the black, suggesting that with the harder trigger pull I was pushing the trigger left.

    Besides the hammer and the slot for it, there is a noticeable difference between the 2009 LCR and the LCRx. The barrel is shinny SS vice black.

    Recoil is how you know primer ignition is complete.

    DAO at distance with a snubby is definitely one of those things that takes a fair amount of work. The trick I teach is to stage the trigger by developing a muscle memory of taking the trigger back to the point of the cylinder stop re-engaging in the next notch, pausing a moment to finalize the sight picture, and then pressing on through.

    On a S&W (which I handle a lot more of), I place the first joint of my finger on the trigger, and the pad of my fingertip touches the frame at about the same time the cylinder stop kicks up. Have not played with enough LCRs yet to have a system, but I'm sure one can be arrived at.

    One thing you can do during dry-fire practice to improve your control is to repeatedly stage and release the trigger to where you can rotate the cylinder all the way around without letting the hammer drop.

    The hammerless snubbies are surprisingly accurate once you get this down and pay close attention to sight alignment. Milk jugs at 50 yards is not an unrealistic target to fart around with.
