    So they shot on a square range, and recommend buying gee gaws and using sights.

      Grips- Grips were mostly rubber and many sported a laser. A few people had issues with interference with their speed loaders. Check your grips to make sure they are relieved on the left side of the revolver to accommodate the speedloaders that you use. If your speedloaders won’t fit into the cylinder, get some new grips or dremel off the offending chunk of rubber that is blocking their insertion. I like how the soft rubber grips feel, but under recoil they almost peel the skin off your palm. Be prepared if you plan on doing a lot of shooting with the soft rubber grips. We saw plenty of Coban appearing on day two of the class to cover up blisters and raw spots caused by the soft rubber.
      I've done this with my S&W 627. Admittedly not a snub (it is an N-frame and mine has a 4" tube) but I couldn't get the round closest to the frame to extract, so I cut the Pachmayr Compac grip so that it would. Might not look too good, but it works for me.

      I've not had this to happen to me with my 627. I don't really care that much for J-frames although I don't loathe them like ricco seems to. But the 627 is a lot bigger and the recoil will be much milder than that of a J-frame with the same round.

        A lot of the noted issues with the grips causing blisters and such most likely wouldn't be common for most people unless they frequently fire a lot of rounds. The article didn't mention how many were fired in the course, but I'd venture a guess it was a lot more than most folks would shoot up in a regular practice regimen. Ace2

          I have shot a lot of J frame rounds, the worst 5 through a Scandium .357. The SS 640 with service panels and a Tyler is fine.

            Seems like a lot of effort for a tool that doesn't perform as well as other more efficient options.

              Well. I guess like my J-frames... shoot them OK, too.
              Can I hit at 50 or 100? Yes, eventually. Is that what I ever envision doing with one? Not at all.
              I am supremely confident that I can put five COM in a man sized target in short order though. I don't think I'll ever be called to do that, much less much more.

              Stud in CA at the synagogue shooting went after the perp with someone else's J-frame. Shot out the window of a leaving car.
              Not sure I'll ever get to do that, (and I'm in no way throwing shade. Guy's a hero) because I'll be carrying something better... but that's CA for you.

                I have a Colt Det. Spec snubby that has repeatedly put 4 out of 6 on a steel pig at 100yds. Small guns can shoot.
                Admittedly, if I were attacked by steel pigs, I would prefer other armament.

                  So, did you go to the site that generated this info, educate them, police our own, and change hearts and minds, or just pop in to feel superior?

                      Educate him on what exactly?

                          Good grief, if you're not going to read all the article, don't comment on it

                          Go spout your nonsense somewhere else

                            You asked if I educated him. I'd really like to know what you think I should be educating him on.

                              Four year old post that is locked. How is that an exchange of ideas?
