Instead of modifying my grips I bought a shooting glove and that is the only gun I use it with. My 41 mag was even worse but Pachmayr took all the bite out of it. I didn't mind modifying that one because it's my carry gun in the field and I don't want to stop and have to put a glove on if I need to shoot it. The 4" barrel just made it a better carry choice than the 7" barrel of the Ruger.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
