Some people are just Evil and then there's you, Glockin' Gregg, LOL
I'm just bustin your chops Frank.
This place wouldn't be the same without you.
I know pard, just bustin' back a little.
You seemed pretty in love with that PX4, but I know how it is only having one gun. You always feel like you have to have the perfect one that fits you and your needs the best. I used to trade every few months or so when I was only able to have one. Hopefully you'll be able to get a second one day. I like my full size 45/sub compact 9mm combination and don't feel like I need any other handguns... just overwhelmed by WANTS now.
I really did like it a lot, it was a great gun for HD or as a full size holster gun but for CCW it was just too big. I've carried this little 642 every day, all day since I've gotten it and I don't even notice it's there half the time, I love it. With the hip grips I have a second option for carry if I need to go for deep concealment and the Fobus Paddle is nice for GP carry and easy off and on if I need to go into someplace that doesn't allow carry.
I'm still going to give a couple other grip types a try, these little hip grips really bust your thumb pretty good when you're shooting. It's not the recoil, recoil isn't much but it's the velociety of that small amount of recoil that really hits ya'. I think when I get some mild handloads put together it'll be better. Going to start with a 158gr SWC home cast over 4.3grs of Unique. If that works out then I'll bump it up to 4.5grs then finally 4.7grs if all goes well.
That's the great thing about handloading, I can taylor ammo to my needs and wants. I don't see why everyone that's into shooting doesn't handload as well, it's a hobby in and of it's self.
Great little revolvers, I never leave home without my 442.
Have you tried the Tyler inserts?
I've tried them a couple times, they do work well but I've found that after some shooting I've gotten use to the S&W revolvers just the way they are with the slab grips. Funny how tastes can change, I use to not like all that room behind the trigger guard but now I'm use to it.
Nice little set-up. Thanks for sharing.--Rob
Nice revolver Frank. Congrats!
