This is a quick pic i took of a couple of weapons

The Airweight is my carry piece, Galco leather
The 586 is my night stand piece, Bianci leather
The Victory mod 10 is a 5" bbl., Repo WWII leather

I have another pic i could send over to Sam at this point for correct posting that shows my little freedom arms 22 i have joked about, but will wait till i can do this right.

My primary collection right now is of old Victorys, and Colt pocket .32's i have a number of both. The decision to focus on these was based on market value of these old weapons, as they are at a collectable price point.

I also have a number of 22 pistols revolvers, and two P-22's that i shoot quite a bit. I have given the wife two 38 snubies (her favorite) over the years, so she has an old Det. Spl. that was a great buy, and of course Colt, and also a Tauraus 85 she (this is to cool) asked for as an aniversary present. Hope this makes ya all smile

one thing ryo notice is the very fine leather. nother thing ryo notice is that all of these are revolvers. is there a preference that you have to revolvers over pistols, or is this just a picture of some of your revolvers ka

your friend always,

and in the past collected (this was from 82 thru 92) 1911's from WWII, i made a bad mistake and sold my collection when prices first started going up, and while i made some money, NOTHING like what they go for today.

I have a number of 38's Smiths.. some victorys some mod 10's an L frame 586, a K frame 19, the airweght shown etc. Also have a couple of Colts, det spl, and an OLD army model thats in the white its so old.. this is going to my brother who retired from the Army.. also a Tauraus T-85, and the obvious 22 revolvers. including a little freedom arms that weighs less than my (looking for a part of the anatomy)... ah never mind...its a light weight.. and an H&R thats not.

In the auto catagory i do have two P-22 Walthers, and until recently (did some trading) I had a browning, and a star (firestorm) both in 9mm.. Lots of reasons for this will talk later, wife is yelling at me to come and have dinner... YES!!

They arent as easy to control in double action as the airweight, and with +P loads the airweight has more recoil than the 586.. The girl scouts let me keep em.. promised they wouldn't beat me up if i bought more thin mints.

Wooden grips are beautiful, but, rubber grip is more comfortable for carry and use.

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Wooden grips

I love the look & feel of fine wood grips. Some woods are incredibly beautiful to me. Some of the work that Hogue does, and some of the custom grip makers are tremendously impressive.
That said, I like rubber grips for any revolver that has recoil beyond that of a .38 Special. I shoot better with them. I can even shoot a Ruger Single Six better with rubber grips (I can't explain that from the recoil standpoint - they just give me better control).
I don't like rubber for some concealed carry, especially IWB. They tend to hand up on clothing, impeding the draw, & possibly creating a dangerous situation. Regardless of recoil, I like wood better for this.
The only wooden grips I like for heavy recoiling revolvers are Hogues. Their shape makes them fit comfortably in my hand.
The worst grips I've ever used for any .357 Magnum were the factory grips on the Colt Trooper Mark III. Extremely deep & sharp full checkering plus the exaggerated swell at the bottom of the grips made them bit my hand when I used full power ammo, either factory or reloads. Grips on the Trooper Mark V were much better.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

Your right on the recoil issue of rubber, and EVERYONE is subject to recoil, some handle a shot or two with no issues, but when you "put it on paper" that 44mag will always group a bit tighter with 44 spl, this is unless your using a ransom rest of course. Have gone thru years of range training telling troops this, always had the "big dog" that would insist he could shoot off hand with any large caliber and group as tight as with a minor.. Sorry ive never seen one case of someone proving this. I stay with wood as they just feel better, and go better with wheelguns than any other type, and also as i use mex carry a lot around the property,(obviously this is a do as i say, not as i do) and as you said no issues with cloths hang ups. Hoping to get on line with a cam i can use to get pics of the old Colts, these little .32 have the pre WWII hard rubber black grips, and both in good shape. No issues, but no recoil either. I told someone the other day you can step out of the way of the rounds.
