    Old school wooden j-frame grips for me!!! These are Chief Specials on my 442. Better fit and feel for my hand and conceals easier.

    These are working out so far but there are better options. A set of grips from Nill-Griffe is on my wish list albeit the high-dollar thing'.

    On the S&W 442, I always liked the big Pachmayr grips for shooting, but beautifully carved Craig Spegel grips in exotic wood. But for carrying, the simple "rubber" boot grips seemed to work the best.

    After many years, I went with a Hough Grip to lessen the pain of shooting my snubby!

    The factory standard walnut panels with a Tyler T-Grip has emerged as my favorite set-up on round butt J-Frames. Rubber grips feel tacky and tend to cling to clothing. The T-Grip offers comfort and control while keeping a more traditional look.

    Most all of mine have small splinter wood grips with T Grips. A few of the dressy BBQ guns have fake pearl with shiny T Grips.

    Crimson Trace, the cheaper, harder plastic one. It's shorter which is nice. The bad thing is it's hard and unforgiving. The laser and the revolver is confidence building in the dark and semi dark .

    A set of the Taurus brand grips for their J-frame sized guns. I had to take out the grip pin to allow them to fit. They fill the area behind the trigger guard and cover the back strap (nice on a lightweight frame) so they lengthen distance between back of grip and trigger, and fit my hand fits much better. They don't extend past the bottom of the trigger guard, so it will still fit in a pocket. Stole the idea from someone on the S&W forum, only hit was it took WEEKS to get them from Taurus. If someone else makes a pair like it-exactly-without Taurus on it, I'd probably buy them!
