Unlike my other pistol, where you aim in the 6 o’clock position, I found the P238 to be most accurate when I put the front site right on the target to cover it. When I aimed at 6 o’clock, I was shooting low. The other difficulty with a short barreled pistol is that is is much harder to line up the sites accurately and you are more apt to be at a variance on the target with the slightest misalignment. I found that was shooting consistently to the left of the bulls-eye, and it took me a long while to get on target.
Trying out the Ruger LCR – our first field test makes us realize that the harder trigger pull of a double-action revolver makes it harder to hold on target than a pistol.
The Ruger LCR with Crimson Trace beats out the Smith and Wesson Bodyguard with Laser for ease of use.
