going whoopee whoopee...

What kid who grew up watching Duke, Clint, Paladin, Wanted DEad or Alive, or any other western did not want an 1873 SAA when they grew up. Picked up a Traditions 1873 in .357 magnum this weekend.

I grew up shooting a Colt New Frontier, and a Ruger Old Army, so I scratched that itch early on. Didn't stop me from getting several cap and ball revolvers and a Blackhawk over the years. Nice looking SA, lee1959! My uncle had a Hawes in .357, I recommend sticking to the .38's in the pic....[eek]

I did of course but discovered I can't shoot cowboy grips for spit.   I have what Arnold would call "girly man hands".   I see some of the .22 ones for a little over $100 and thinking about getting one to plink with.   Had an Iver Johnson back in the day and would put Rat shot shells in it when I went down to the barn to feed up and take a few rats out in the process.

That is not all that unusual. You probably have some issues with other revolver grips like the Magna combat grip on Smith and Wesson 19s, 29s and others. Sadly they look great but were designed without much regard to ergonomics. The thinnest point is in the middle where the longest fingers are and the widest is the butt where the shortest fingers are. Many knife handles have the same design flaws.
