    Question Taurus 850 Questions...

    No Taurus hate please, I'm not looking for advice on another gun. Thanks.

    The grip seems small for med/big size hands - is that an issue?

    I've been looking for longer/bigger grips but the ones I find don't seem to fit model 850, any1 have any recommendation?

    Regarding hostlers for CC, I should wait to/if I put longer/bigger grips on it before I buy anything correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    The grips are compact because it's a compact gun. I can't think of any J-frame sized snubbies out there with larger grips; even my wife with small-to-medium sized hands has to curl her pinky finger under the grip on my Taurus 851. You really need to shoot one to see if it's an issue for you. If it is, then I suggest you step up to a K-frame snub, but that's no longer a pocket pistol.

    Alternatively, you could work with a custom grip maker, but in all likelihood you'd end up with wood grips which are less forgiving when you shoot snappy loads like +P.

    For holster considerations, realize that the grips don't enter the holster, so - not a problem.

    I have a Taurus 85. I found a set of either Hogue or Pachmayer 3 finger grips that helped me a lot. I have large hands, also. Since the grips aren't in the holster, I don't see a need to wait. Anything marked for a "J" frame should fit it nicely.

    No Taurus hate.

    Grips -- S&W J frame stocks won't work. You need Taurus small frame stocks. For a longer and bigger, I use Uncle Mike's. Alas, they're no longer made. Look at Hogue Grips. This right here is probably what you want.



    Holsters -- no need to wait. J-frame compatible fits fine, and the stocks don't matter.
