Grip Therapy - OMG IT SPINS!! Edition

I finally got around to picking up some VZ Grips for the snubby, and I'm glad I did.  I got a set of the Hyena Brown 320s in G10 laminate, because I like that they look like wood. The texture is smooth, but grippy enough, and with the finger grooves and general boot grip shape, they feel nice and secure.

They feel slightly wider than the factory rubber, but the relief behind the cylinder release is a bit deeper, and and the G10 is less grabby than the rubber, so I can actually use HKS and Safariland speedloaders now.  I'm hoping they'll snag on my shirt a lot less now too.

Between these and the Apex kit, I'm really really liking my little J-frame.

have you shot it yet?

When Jay put the VZ grips on his .357 Airweight I thought it would turn it from a monster to the Horseman War from Revelations.

Actually it felt a LOT better in the hand. I suspect because it allows a much more positive and firm grip of the gun.

I'll eventually get a pair for my 642, but that's on the back burner now that I rarely carry it.

Not yet... the mail person sucked and forgot it on the truck, so they came the day after the range trip.
