    I recently was given an LCR, and was curious as to what ammo you guys run through your small frame .38s for self defense.

    I want to know your secret - how do you manage to get someone to give you an LCR? Then again, one of the Sergeants at my station was given a custom engraved double stack Para 1911 by his old squad when he left.

    I've been wanting one since I heard about it coming out. My dad knew it and got his hands on one and gave it to me.

    Yeah....that's a bad idea. I've seen women shoot those and catch a wrist stinger and drop the sumbitch.
