    I went to the gun club today set on buying a Smith & Wesson M&P 340 and found out that the S&W reps are gonna be there in a couple of weeks performing free trigger jobs to any new revolver purchased, so I decided to hold on to my money for a little bit longer. I'll join the snubbie club soon tho....

    I just bought a 642 and it has the standard black grips S&W puts on new snubs. I noticed in the pics posted here that many folks put custom grips on their S&W snubs. The grips on my new gun don't allow the hand to go as high behind the trigger guard as the old style slim grips. And with the old style grip I could probably get my pinky onto the grip. Any comments on the advantages of each type of grip?

    I will admit that some of the stag and wood grips shown here look really good - maybe I am just looking for an excuse.

    The thing with grips are the are very personal, I've found this to be more true with a revolver vs. an auto.

    I might rave about one particular grip, but you might hate it. Some people choose soley on looks, and others are all function.

    A lot depends on how you want to carry too. Pocket carry changes the ballgame completly, as holster carry gives a lot of options.

    I prefer the shorter boot grips that come standard with the newer S&W's, it seems to be a good compromise.

    If you want the slimmer old style, I'm sure you can find some around, those were the first things a lot of guys ditched when they bought a new snub.

    Yes. Its been settled . . .

    When the gummint check comes in, Im getting a Ruger Sp101 2".

    Compared to my Glock (30 oz loaded) or S&W M10 2" (34 oz loaded), its pretty light (27 oz loaded) and much smaller. I can't wait to get one.

    S&W 442 w/rosewood grips from grips4guns.com. Sold my CTC LG-405's for the wood grips a couple months ago, and couldn't be happier!

    That looks sharp Josh! Good move in dumping the laser too, you will be a better shooter in the long run.

    Are those the Excaliber boot grips? I don't see the ones with the diamond and checkering like yours.

    Cool S&W 19

    I bought this for carry before I got the permit. It works, but I have pursued others that are lighter and smaller, including some autos. I will always appreciate the Model 19 though.

    I've always liked having the option of a small pocket gun for times when I don't feel like strapping on a full rig. Or (if I'm going near Detroit) a back up gun.

    I've always used a P3AT for that. Mine has never once failed to feed or eject, and it's fairly accurate for such a tiny thing. I never did any fluff and buff. Well, two weeks ago I did my occasional grab the Kel Tec and dump a magazine of carry ammo. Right after the first shot the mag dropped, and I know darn well I didn't bump the release. I've not had it happen again, but it still un-nerved me.

    So, I took a little extra money I had and picked up a 642. While I'm still waiting on my pocket holster it seems like it will carry very easily. I know it will be way more reliable than even a good example of the P3AT like I have, and a good .38 is a little bit better than .380

    I've only shot it once so far, just 1 box. That thing has a lot more bite than I suspected, but after about 30 rounds of pretty bad shooting I was hitting the target fairly decently. It will take a lot more practice but I think I'm really going to love this snub!

    Me, Taurus fan...
    I've carried the 85 Multi-Alloy (center) for 8 or 9 years, at least. Nice light weight revolver.

    The Ruger SP101 (left) is new and is also being carried...not a pocket gun though (IWB or OWB). The 851 (right, also an Ultra-Lite) is also new. It'll replace the 85 as my pocket rocket. The shrouded hammer does work better for pocket carry, but I didn't want a DAO revolver.

    That's affirmative. Not quite what they show in the picture, but I was still extremely happy with them!
