    CorBon DPX and new Hogue Grips in the Snubbie (Pic)

    Bought Hogue's bantam grips for the bobbed 637 yesterday. Went to an indoor range today to try CorBon's 110 gr DPX load and cycle my carry ammo (Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel +P 135 gr). Shot around 60 rounds between the CorBon and Speer GDSB +P, 2-handed, strong hand and weak hand. Easily kept all shots in the A zone at 7 yards, even rapid-fire.

    I have to say, the Hogues are a minor adjustment from the Uncle Mike's grip, but they work a lot better. They're thinner overall, with a palm swell that lets you get a deathgrip on the snubbie. Control is increased, and therefore perceived recoil is reduced. Even though the DPX load is lighter, it's supposed to penetrate better than even the GDSB. Recoil is only slightly reduced with the CorBon, but both defensive loads have negligible flash when compared to MagTech loads.

    The Hogues apparently come standard on the more expensive S&W airlites and other 357s, but if you have a 637/642 airweight or similar 38 that came with the Uncle Mike's boot grips, I would recommend looking into the Hogues. They're only $20 or so, and well worth it.

    Mo: Great minds think alike. I, too, just purchased the same Hogue grip for my y642.

    Now...I've always carried the 110 grain Corbon DPX + P....but the new grip makes it sooooo much easier.

    It all comes down to going down the dark holes after monsters. Thatís what itís all about; when everyone else is huddled around the campfire, somebody has to go out and fight.
