Geez, I hate to admit it, 'cause their butt ugly....but for S&W and Colt double actions...the old Pachmyer rubber grips do a fine job of handling recoil, despite their off-putting looks.
In the world of Single Action grips, the "gunfighter" type, with a swell up near the top to arrest the recoil's muzzle flip, fit me well....and I've made a dozen or so now with varying amounts of swell. They work well and add visually to the gun's looks.
Best Regards, Rod
Cherish our flag, honor it, defend what it stands for or get the hell out. Our Freedoms are not free, they've been paid for many times over by heros in uniform. Far better men than I, died that we could be FREE.
