I shoot a S&W 36 and the wife a model 60. Changing the grips cam make a whole world of difference. My grips are Herrrtts(sp?), they are wood and about 3/4 of an inch longer than the frame. When I purchased them they were, I believe called "Shooting Star".
As far as accuracy, both shooot very well. The limitations are the length of the "sight plane" and tha amount of time and effort you put in. It did blow my mind when Bob Mundin on TV used his to pop a balloon at 200 yds. Heck I could hardly see a ballon at that far. Keep shooting yours, I'm sure you willl surprise yourself.
