Nice collection there.
I'm not intending to pull everything out of the home defense locker any time soon but I need to do an 'annual' cleaning and wipedown.

I finally got my latest .44 mag out to the range. It's a 29-2 that looked a bit like yours except for the coloration.
I absolutely HATED it the first trip out to the range. I shot it side by side with my 629 Classic Comp and found the traditional target grips stank on ice. I wound up buying a set of Hogue finger groove square butt rubber grips for it and got it out a second time and the difference was AMAZING! The gun was MUCH more controllable and I didn't feel like I was getting hammered in the web of my hand every shot no matter how I tried to hold the gun. I MIGHT eventually order some Hogue wood grips for it but but the cheap rubber monogrips are so much better than the S&W factory wood it ain't even funny.

Thanks! Yeah, my paws are too small for an N frame, and I can't do the standard target grips. But with an L frame and Arhends undersized target grips, I'm well satisfied. I'm not a fan of rubber or finger grooves.
