    At this point, youíre caught up on current P-F revolver grip thinking.

    Excellent, thanks. On topic, the below pic, clipped from a link in that thread, of Mr Miculekís grip on a snubby, is what I call the Ďc-clampí. As say Iím excited (ok as excited as you can get shooting an LCR ) to get to the range to try this out soon.

    Just won one of these in 9mm for three and a half bills on GunBroker. Who do we like for holsters? Pocket? Belt? Ankle? This will be a backup piece at work, likely ankle or pocket. At the gym, I have a PistolWear/Thunderwear thing. Would be a primary for some modes of dress and locales, so belt and pocket need to be considered. Will likely eventually wear CT Lasergrips at some point, as I really like lasers on my guns, particularly ones I may teach with. Moon clips on the way.

    Of all the carry modes for loaded moon clips I am liking the Ruger offeringhttps://thefiringline.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=589423, as it emulates the old split six speed loader pouches I loved a younger, skinnier, revolver totin' youngster. It puts two of the rounds behind the belt so the rounds in the clip straddle ths belt, reducing bulk.

    Thanks in advance,

    I use the Darryl method.
    Full contact with thumb, I squeeze as hard as I can.
    I'm more accurate with this LCR than a 1911, even out to 25 yds rapid fire

    Stock grips.

    Damn, I came to the same technique as Miculek?

    Must be my 625 talking to me.

    (I'm pretty sure I heard it described here, then I tried it, beats everything else I have tried)

    Iíve been happy with my DSG for j-frame, would think LCR would be similar: https://darkstargear.com/product/lcr/

    Aholster for a thin, rigid pocket holster : https://aholster.com/product/pocket-aholster/

    The thicker soft pocket holsters donít work as well for me, but might with different clothing/body shapes. Mikaís seem popular here: https://mikaspocketholsters.com/

    I thought so as well, but found the Apollo for the LCR to be much less comfortable than the one for the J-frame. What has worked better *for me* is a High Noon Instinct Lite (picked up NIB cheap on ebay) with a DCC 1.75" #4 clip in place of the factory Pull-the-dot belt loop and strut. I added a small wedge too. I can wear it all day, while working in the yard or on the car, etc without problems.

    I love my .327 LCR. I use an Apollo.
    Grip-I shoot a lot of different revolvers so I use a thumb over thumb. My wife only shoots snubs, so she uses the C clamp. I like both. I do not teach or use a thumbs forward, I have seen way too many issues with what thumbs and cylinders interacting can do. Others think itís the bees knees.....make your choices and do what makes you happy.
    Just a Hairy Special Snowflake supply clerk with no field experience, shooting an Asymetric carbine as a Try Hard. Snarky and easily butt hurt. Favorite animal is the Cape Buffalo....likely indicative of a personality disorder.

    I want to like my Apollo for the LCR, but the very tall sight channel makes the holster wider than it needs to be. On my narrow waist, thatís not ideal.

    Are you running .327 Fed Mag in it or something else?
