    Thats pretty much my logic as well. Before casting I was judicial with my ammo and rarely shot more than a box or 2 per range trip. Now I bring a gallon size bag full of reloads and enjoy myself as long as I want. At 5-6c per round and all the...

    I've got an LCR in 357....I'll give this a go ;). Was my first gun I bought myself! It is not a comfortable gun to shoot but tolerable for its use case. On the same note my LCP isn't really that fun to shoot either.
