    New grip setup for Taurus 85

    I've had a Taurus 85 ultra-lite for a while now but was having issues with the best way to carry it. It's a little big for pocket carry in the pants I normally wear and wearing a second holster is just a pain in the butt. I also wasn't comfortable with Mexican carry because I worry that it would just fall out, or slip down my pant-leg. A couple of months ago, I got a set of Barami Hip-Grips, while they work well for their intended purpose (carrying in the waistband w/o a holster) they were very uncomfortable when shooting. Not because of the recoil, but due to the position of my hand on the grip.

    Earlier this week I acquired a Tyler "T" grip-adapter (you see them a lot on some of the older S&W's and Colts). This takes up the space under the trigger-guard and fills the hand a little more without adding any bulk that might print. So far I'm really liking this setup. If anyone's looking for an alternative carry method for small-frame revolvers, you might give this a try.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Looks a good combo Matt - not one I'd have thought of.

    My old std weight 85 had some home made wood grips for some time but in the end I found Hogues suited best - that was tho with OWB carry so they were no problem re concealment.
