Ruger LCR 357 vs 38 special

I shot my Ruger LCR today with 38 special, the gun is surprisingly very accurate with 38 special ammo, I shot 5 rounds with the 357 magnum and my jaw dropped, the sounds and the recoil was unbelievable , my hands are all red and hurting after 5 rounds only...

Nice pics! :cool:

How would you compare the recoil between regular .38 Special, .38 Special +P, and .357 Mag? Is the +P closer to the Mag or the regular special?
I got only one comparison, regular target 38 special vs Winchester 357 hollow point. If you been shooting 9mm its like comparing 9mm to 22 caliber and 357 45 caliber with this small gun, it's no fun at all. Maybe with gloves I can tolerate it a bit.
I don't think I'd like shootin' it either. However, that LCR is a great choice in the fact you have opened up your ammo selection if needed.
