I want me a revolver for me and the wife for home security. Semi automatics are not a good option when in a stressed situation. I have one on each side of the bed a revolver I think would be a better choice. Thoughts are sure welcome and what you would buy.

Thought about moving next to you. I know you would keep me straight and I would not have worry about home invasion . Because they know what you are packing.

The Python is a classic and smooth as butter. You might want to try some smoother drips, Hogue has some great offerings in wood and rubber. Python grips have a raised checkering the acts like a file when firing .357 ammunition. I've got the target model in .38 Special only, but I had a standard six inch barrel in .357 Magnum. It was a tough on the hand with 158 grain .357 loads and it is the one pistol I regret selling.

I carried it in a fanny pack. It worked pretty well. We were meeting friends for lunch and I wanted to show it to my buddy. I normally carry a Kimber 9mm Micro, or a 32 Seacamp (Back pocket walet, or my KelTec 22mag MPR. On holiday's I carry a 1911 to mom's.

I adore the look of these stock grips...... so sexy, but I agree with you, if I spent time shooting it, it isn't an ideal design. I think I might google some options and see if anything pops. Pun intended.

If you like the originals look, you might try what I did. I found an old beat up set of oil soaked Python grips at a gun show. I leached out the oil, ground off the checkering then refinished them.

Every time you pull the trigger it goes boom. Not so much with semi autos.

That looks like a lot of pistol to conceal carry. fog

Also, I doubt it comes in pink. Sarcasm

For someone that just carries and never trains for real life situations I'd recommend a wheel gun in 38,maybe 357 for bigger folks that can handle the added recoil.For the person willing to train under stressful situations I'd recommend a semi-auto..........I've literally seen every make and model semi-auto,regardless of price, stovepipe,experience ramp failure so on and so forth.Usually this is an ammo issue but must be dealt with just the same to get ammo feed.


I love my little S&W 642 just for this reason,small,light,perfect back pocket gun,up close and personal it's a beast and it always goes boom

I also love my little Glock 26 and it holds 5 extra rounds

Out of probably 7k rounds I’ve had exactly one round stovepipe in my H&K and I can clear much quicker than a revolver can reload.

Wheel guns are good for old people, people with wear hands, and people not familiar with firearms.

They are fun to shoot, I like hunting with a .41mag as well.

Hopefully you aim yours better than that limp wristed Limey does his. fog



My favorite wheelie to shoot is a 4" GP100. Fantastic gun.

The father of a dear friend and who was my assistant manager at one of my boot stores in the early 90's scrimshawed it for me. Has a rattle snake. His name was Robert Carrera. (sp?) Super nice family. I think they have all passed except the mother. Great people. Thank you for asking.

You wear a loose shirt and put it in a Galco leather belt holster. Or, consider wearing a sports coat. You do NOT have to carry only the tiny micro-guns. With proper planning and clothing we can all carry big boy guns.

This,
https://ruger.com/products/gp100/specSheets/1715.html

but I swapped out the Hogue Monogrip for these (the backstrap bump on the Monogrip bugs my hand)
https://shopruger.com/Rubber-Grips-with-Rosewood-Inserts-Compact/productinfo/70084/

Looks like this now

They are solid, decent price, and if you are just a little bit handy, you can clean up the action and other bits if you got a "rough" one. I got lucky with mine, with the exception of my hammer dog gap, which I might shim up someday.

Some people swap out springs, etc......meh......just shoot it, stone out any imperfections, and have a revolver that will last a looooong time.
