Couldn’t help but notice that all of your Dans in this post are wearing Pachmayr grips. Very nice photography by the way. I just recently scored a new (old stock) set of Presentation grips, and couldn’t be happier with them. Thought I would go ahead and post a photo of my Dan along with yours now that he is properly attired!

Wood grips are for Church on Sunday. Pachmyer grips are for shooting, especially in hot or wet weather. And with the shorter barrels to mitigate recoil.

I agree about the Pachmayr grips for shooting, but the original DW wood grips sure are pretty. I don’t notice much difference in the recoil, but I definitely find that I have better control of the gun. It’s easier to hold on target as it doesn’t have that ‘slippery’ feel of the wood grip.

cool-picsGreat pics! Thanks. The 4H with the Grippers is a perfect look.

I do prefer the Hogue rubber grips for shooting, but I have also spent way too much money on pretty grips too!

A beautiful gun, 3ric! I’ve got all kinds of wooden clogs for them, but to my taste, the blue guns look best wearing a Gripper or like you have it, nice and elegant Presentation. I tell you, I take the .44s to the range and my wife can shoot 260gr ammo all day using the old Presentation with Decelerator.  Switch to any wood grips and felt recoil really increases.

I stopped complaining about the wife and her shoe fetish cause I was doing the same thing with grips. So many looks and styles. Must have a couple grand on Python and Diamondback grips alone! Only difference is that my purchases, unlike her ugly shoes, have real intrinsic value the chick knows nothing about. But I don’t tell her that, however, or she might not let me do what I want anymore.

Thought it would be fun to have some “Bruce Wayne” transformation time with my Dan. The cool factor of DW’s! IMG_0876.jpgImage Enlarger

out of the two l like the full lug best. It just has that Pythonesque look to it.  It’s fun exchanging barrel assemblies and grips. It also makes cleaning the barrel and forcing cone areas much easier on me.

You should name her Barbie as often as you change her outfit…..

It’s a good thing I don’t have any more than two grips and two barrels; otherwise I wouldn’t get much of anything much else done but change the outfits around on “Barbie” LOL!

Actually, I’m leaving her as is for awhile. Shooting my second IHMSA match on Saturday with the 4 in. barrel. Second gun will be a .45 Colt hog leg with 4.75 in. barrel. Wish me luck!

Guess nobody wished me luck on my IHMSA shoot, LOL. Did terrible today. I’m now convinced the longer sight radius on the 6 in. barrel is of more value than I previously thought. From now on it’s 6 in. for IHMSA, and 4 in. for everything else.

I agree with the longer radius. Practice, practice.

Practice is the name of the game for sure. I was ready for my first shoot last month; lots of dry fire practice and range time in preparation right up until the day before. I shot reasonably well for my first match. This time around I was on the road for four days before the shoot wit no practice of any kind. Made a huge difference, for the worse. I never really got completely comfortable with my hold, and being very tired in general didn’t help either. I’ll do much better next time if I can manage my time better.

3ric, you might want to use an 8 inch for IHMSA. Even longer sight radius. My favorite is the Vent 10″. The VH in 8 or 10 is quite muzzle heavy.

   Rex, my last gun purchase, which is not in yet, is a 31/2″ S&W Registered Magnum. Being a blue chip investment it cost me an additional TWO Coach purses and a matching  Coach change purse. I really should not have bragged about my super deal. Oh well, Happy Wife, Happy Life. I usually try to get her to pick out a gun too. My motto is ” Her gun is my gun.”

@ole dog:

A registered magnum AND a happy wife? Wow!  I couldn’t pull that one off. Those things are mini cannons from what I’ve heard.
