    Popper,

    I'd go with the 357 ... lots more options, and lots more mold choices ... cases are easy to come by too!

    While I've never shot the 38 version ... I'd guess the recoil is more than shooting the same 38's in the 357 model, as the 38 has an Aluminum frame, and lighter ... try to shoot both, only about $50 difference in price IIRC.

    I really like my 9mms and the moon clips are a plus. I use Ranch Dogs 135 grain.
    The .357s get a 170 grain WFN at around 800 fps. I have used a few different alloys, and currently using 1:20 lead tin. That is a problem solver.
    Regardless, with the great trigger and light weight, these guns are the definition of a pocket carry gun. I use Mika pocket holsters.

    My LCR fits great in the pocket, but with jeans, they might as well be clear pockets it prints so bad. I pocket carry it to work in my Carhartt pants, and it works great there. I'm using I think a Bianchi, which is quite thin. Does Mika use nice thick leather?

    I opted for the 357 LCR...........already have three 38 Special J-frames. The LCR has a better trigger than one of the Custom Shop J-frames, not to mention, better sights.

    I carry in a Mika pocket holster almost 100% of the time. I can't get my head around a 9 mm revolver. I like the cartridge and have a half dozen 9 mm semi's. A Kahr PM-9 carries just as well, in my Mika pocket holster, as a 5 shot light weight revolver. Two more shots and a faster reload, if necessary.
