I like the Roper style grip for a heavy handgun.

Creeker thx very much for your comment. I have been a Roper fan going back to the days of Kieth and Cooper. These were made from a head board for a bed. The bed came up to Wyoming from Missouri in the 1880s on an imagrant wagon train. I have no idea how old the wood is. They were made by a very old and dear USMC comrade who lives in Atlanta, Ga. So yes they are very special. Thx

DK

That IS a great story and congrats. With the smooth, Roper style grips do you get a good, secure feel? I've been thinking about dressing up my M-28 with something like that, but always thought they might be rather slick.

I beg to differ jd. When I'm out side of an evening, having a few beers, he'll come by and have a few with me. Funny..........he usually stops by after about 23 beers.

HK they are smooth not slick. I like the smooth grips. They do not bite my paws with heavy recoil. They allow me a more constant grip on the revolver. I have a S&W Mdl 27 3 1/2" I would like to get smooth grips on it. Hell yes Big Foot is real. It some times takes 4 shots of Wild Turkey 101 to find him.

I CCed my 8" Raging Bull all day today. Was out shopping and running errands. Overall I spent probably 2.5 hours in the car (with it on my hip), and probably 1.5-2 hours walking around stores.

I have been carrying it with the barrel just stuffed IWB at about 8:30, with the butt forward for a right-handed cross draw. The front of the cylinder was resting on the top of my belt. I have now seen a couple of actual holster options, but I don't know if any of them will work since they all put the cylinder below the pants line, which I think would make it sit too low on my body. I might look into making something, but this has actually worked surprisingly well (at least, for no holster at all).

I am 6' / 145lbs, and wear size small and often tailored jackets, and I was surprised how easy it still has been to conceal this thing, under either an open or zipped vest today. The vest is tight enough that a full-sized pistol will bulge under it when carried at the ~12:30 position (appendix carry), but at the right angle the Bull didn't print noticably. I have other looser vests and jackets that work even better, but I wanted to try this one today.

It wasn't always comfortable, but it was definitely comforting .

This vest cannot conceal belt-mounted speedloader pouches at all, so I just tossed one into the vest pocket. Other jackets can conceal 4 on my belt above my right thigh.


BTW I did also have a small auto with me, but it actually didn't stay on my person the whole time. I experimented with carrying it up front at 12:30, and behind my right hip for a strong side draw. Worked well enough, I suppose, but the vest was definitely not cut to conceal two pistols lol.
