My 77 year old Mother in Law finally decided to carry now that Georgia went CC. We tried a bunch of guns yesterday and ruled out even .380 semi autos since she can’t rack the slide and got flustered reloading. I let her shoot my Ruger SP-101 with 38 sp and she did great. Solid groupings at 15 yards right in the bread basket. She really wanted to try one of the “J” ackass frames with the lock from behind the counter but it was too light to handle the recoil and she put it back. I haven’t tried the LCRs yet but thought maybe the 3” LCRx in .357 might be a good compromise to shoot only 38 special .Slightly longer barrel and grip and just a few ounces lighter than the SP-101 to soak up the recoil. Anyone had an older member of the family out revolver shooting with an LCR?
