    For a SD revolver I use the Hogue rubber grip. I have carried my 649 for about 2 years now and I feel it is the very best pocket gun that I have ever carried. I carry mine in a Mika pocket holster.

    Here are the pics I promised.

    640 with Pachmyars


    642 with Hogues


    ETA - yes I know that the 640 is loaded. It is my carry gun today and I just took it off to shoot the pics then reholstered.

    very nice ksholder! Thanks for the pics. I just went to Hogue...maybe they discontinued that grip?? Didn't see it pictured only black rubber or pink. Ahhhhh...no pink grips for me. LOL

    I like the idea of being able to exchange a grip from Hogue. I think I'll give em a ring and toss some ideas around. All these grips look great but I think the ability to try / exchange will make the Hogue grip worth the extra few bucks. :)

    Thanks again everyone!

    Especially for pocket carry, I highly recommend smooth. I second everything pogo2 had to say.

    This was a really tough choice and I certainly want to thank everyone for their input. When I balanced all the variables...(size, smooth vs checkered, grip material type, ability to exchange the product etc) ....all balanced with the need (want LOL) to range shoot as well as CC I chose......

    (drum roll please....)

    Hogue round butt three finger groove checkered grips in Kingwood. I called and their customer service was awesome. This gal was very knowledgeable about all the Hogue grips and CC practices. She even gave me a 10% discount and said if they didn't conceal well enough for me or did not feel right I could exchange them with no hassles. She did mention the bantam would be a better option for pocket carry but let's face it...I got a 649. Not exactly the smallest, lightest gun for that purpose!

    I'll just mostly carry OWB and be happy. :)

    Oh...you bought the Kingwood?
    I really like their Kingwood grips & also their Rosewood Laminate - both are beautiful and tough as iron.
    I have their Kingwood grips on my SIG. It's an all 'round great wood for gun grips and it's extremely stable as well as being beautiful.

    You wouldn't if you ever had to shoot that gun with any accuracy with wet hands. Just something to think about. YMMV.

    That was my thought. It get VERY steamy in the summer in this neck of the woods. It was a balance between the little bit of "catch" factor on clothing vs the possibility or slipping.

    I just bought the Kingwood because I think it looked great. I'm glad to hear it's durable as well!! Thanks for chiming in!

    I like the checkered service stocks combined with the Tyler T-Grip,they draw great from the pocket and provide great control.
    This combo would probably not work if using speedloaders.
