Fly Weight





A few years back I decided to scale back my armament when I traveled by Air on "low risk" jobs by leaving my 1911 at home and, picked up a second snub nosed revolver instead. The folks over at NRA's Shooting Illustrated let me put my thoughts to pen.

I retired the bootgrips for my 5-shot snubbies.

The exposed frame, hard grips were too punishing for adequate practice. I took some full rubber grips and cut off the portion that protruded below the frame, to get an approximation of the slick boot grips.

Originally I only used these grips for the range, but forgot them one day, and discovered that my target group size was twice as large as with the rubber ones. That cut my headshot distance in half. Seems the gun moves in my hand during trigger manipulation and/or recoil. Amazing how accurate a DAO snubbie can be when you can keep it from squirming around in your hand!


I was told by a S&W rep at SHOT to NEVER fire +P in my 442-0.

Oh, and the Apex trigger kit doesn't fit in the -0.
