I need some opinions on sighting my LCR 38. I am an experienced shooter, but new to snubbies, and have yet to take my LCR to the range. I was reading the instructions and was surprised with the sight pattern they suggest. Just looking at the gun's profile would suggest to me that the front fixed sight should rise above the rear sight for a level shot. Ruger tells me to alight the front and back sights. Seems to me this would result in a low shot. They also say to aim for the bottom of the center ring. Are they compensating for the barrel rise on firing? I would think the bullet would be long gone before the bullet rose that much.

Thoughts appreciated.

Ruger is just showing the standard "six o'clock" hold as the sight picture.

Can't be sure about your particular gun / ammo combination, compared to mine. My LCR-357, loaded with 130gr .38s, shoots dead on with this sight picture at 12 yards.

Snubbies are normally set up for short, self-defense distances. 36 feet is actually a little far for SD.
