    I've been wanting a "real" revolver.
    I shot it when I bought it.
    IT WAS GREAT! My first time with .357:supergrin:

    She's a beauty! One of my favorites, carried her faithfully on duty for many years in the nasty streets of the L.A. basin. Kept me safe and sound. You should have seen the looks on some perps faces when staring straight into her barrel.

    Congrats and have fun!

    Those are pretty grips. I love the swirls. I need to read about the
    differences between cocobolo and rosewood. I need to learn the dif.

    Congratulations!!!

    And it has the proper grips on it instead of the Hogue rubber abortion.

    For our purposes, since we're talking about gun grips and not instrument building, there's really not much difference. Just go with what you think looks best.

    Similar, but I like the more exotic look of cocobolo a little better.

    A good piece of goncalo alves is really pretty, too.

    Congrats! :supergrin: I love mine. Outstanding revolver in every way.

    Also if its anything more than a collection piece I recommend the rubber grips. I put CT laser grips on mine.
