I've got both a set of J Frames (a couple in 38 and one in 22lr) and a set of LCR (2 in 9mm and 1 in.22lr). At one time I planned on consolidating calibers and replacing my 38/357 with 9mm but I have some 38s that I really like so I haven't been motivated to sell them. I like the LCR in 9mm so much that I picked up a second one for my wife she shoots it well. I really like the Ergo grips on both the J Frame and LCR but replaced them with Crimson Trace laser grips on my 642 Power Port and 9mm LCR. I am so pleased with the laser grips that I won't be putting the Ergo grip back on. I've used Pachmayer, Hogue Crimson Trace and the Ergo grips in recoil absorbing rubber for over 40 years and I have never had a problem with them catching my cover garment. If the OP or anyone else would like to try the ERGO GRIPS I would be glad to let them try mine if they would cover the cost of postage. I think the 5 shot snubbie is a remarkably versatile handgun that can be tailored to meet a number of needs simply by changing the grips, ammo and or holster. A Smith and Wesson J Frame model 36 was my first concealed carry gun and I see absolutely no reason not to continue to carry it today.
