I've got a set of those Badger "boot" grips as well. I had to relearn to shoot my Ruger though. The angle change is drastic enough that the muscle memory in my shooting had a hard time keeping the front sight lowered. I've grown to really like these, but they are definitely something I had to get used to first. They tend to make the gun twist in my hand as well if shooting hot .357's. But I've settled my loads down a bit now to make it enjoyable.
