Nothing wrong with preferring something else. That's why they make Fords and Chevrolets. If you get the chance, you might check out the FA model 97 with fixed sights. They have the same grip shape as the big model 83 (which I think is great for hard hitters) but it is a much smaller and more traditional styled gun. more like the Colt SAA, but built to the same mechanical standards of fit and finish as the 83. I doubt you would argue the quality of the FA revolvers, but I can appreciate different tastes.
