    Hi rdrancher;

    I see you put the older slim factory grip panels on your Model 642. I did that as well for better concealment. I've been wondering about the addition of the Tyler T-Grip. It seems that it'd be a beneficial addition for control when shooting heavy loads rapid fire. How do you like your revolver with the T-Grip?

    Thats what a working snub should look like rd! I thinks is azqkr that likes the tyler grips, you might want to ask him. I've never messed with them much, but I'd like to try them out.

    bmcgilvray,

    I've been wondering about the addition of the Tyler T-Grip. It seems that it'd be a beneficial addition for control when shooting heavy loads rapid fire.

    On the 38 snubs, I usually use the same small grips you've put up in your picture. On my 640-1 357, the Tyler T is quite beneficial at sucking up the recoil.

    The Tyler T with heavy loads of Buffalo Bore 150 grain wad cutters in the model 60 I'm using presently in the BUG role really helps in control and follow on shots as well.

    The Tyler T doesn't detract from concealability in the least either in the pocket or on the belt.

    Hope that helps,

    Good memory SIXTO

    As bmcgilvray mentioned in his reply, removing the hammer spur doesn't make them unreliable on striking the primer hard enough as long as you don't lighten the mainspring weight.

    My present model 60 BUG has a bobbed hammer [ came that way when I recently picked it up ] and I've bobbed a few model 36's over the years [ one was dropped and the spur broke off so I just dremeled it smooth instead of replacing it ] with no ill effects of reliability on primer strikes.

    I like the way it shoots with the T-grip on (much better control), but like the draw from the pocket without the T-grip better. I use it both ways depending on my mood. Shoot me an email - I have another if you want to try one out on your snub to see how you like it.

    The holster is from Blackhawk now called "Inside the Pants Leather Concealment". Pretty long name for a holster. I have to admit, it's a great looking holster. I own a few OWB holsters from Blackhawk and the quality is satisfactory.

    Checkout Blackhawk's website and you'll see it.

    I grabbed this from their website.

    My snubby collection

    I like snubbies and have 7 of them - 6 from S&W and one from Colt. I took a picture of them this weekend and this thread seems the ideal place to post the picture.

    My first CCW was a S&W 442 .38 special which I still have and carry often especially during the summer. Its a much easier weapon to conceal especially with light clothing on. Pros- its light, small, makes a good pocket gun and loaded with +P hollow points it makes a good SD weapon. There are two drawbacks with this, first is the recoil, these little guns can be pretty snappy especially with the +P. The second is that with only five rounds you'd better be proficient with it and it is important to carry a speed strip.
