I have owned my Ruger LCR for a couple months and have wondered why I cannot stay on target. I just realized with the purchase of a laser bore sight that my LCR shoots well below the sight, maybe an inch at 5-7 yards and I can only imagine at 15-20. Is there anything that can be done?

Ronnielc, Sounds like your laser is pointing exactly where it should. Keep in mind, the muzzle rises with recoil so the bore line must be below the sight line. If the laser bore guide was right on the target with the sights, the gun would shoot a couple inches high.

Typical Ruger fixed sights are registered (POI=POA) with a 158 gr 38 Special at 15 yards.

Yeah - about 15 yards is good for plinking metal targets. I wasn't too worked about about accuracy at longer distances - it is a weapon for 'up close and personal' defense.
