I'll write a painful report after I shoot a few.

I've shot a number of .44 mags, but never with 340gr. +P+.

I ask because I've never fired a big bore S/A but do own and have extensively shot my D/A S&W 629 .44 Mag. It's the SS Mounain Gun Version w/factory rubber grips and while it's a handful with full house loads, I've never found them to be uncomfortable?

Of course, these grips are open at the back so the web of the hand is resting on the SS backstrap. I mostly fire it S/A and may well be getting the "roll" efect you describe above?

Tack
The roll effect is the gun settling into your hand as you quick draw in a sphincter pucker situation. With a rubber grip, what you grab is what you shoot.

It's got Hogue grips on it and they're fugly, but they feel really good in hand. The trigger is incredibly smooth with a great break. It was either worked on or is so nicely broken in that it's excellent. Then while I was wandering around the shop I found a perfect bandoleer holster for it.

I also picked up an as new stainless CZ83 with two mags, the case and all the box candy for my new carry pistol. Now I just have to find a decent holster for it. I'll probably go with a Milt Sparks Summer Special like I had for the Pro Carry.

So, how did I do this? I sold the Kimber Pro Carry II this morning. I love 1911's, but the money I got selling it all but paid for both new handguns. I love the .45ACP round and I realize that going down to .380ACP is kind of weird, but in my warped mind it's working for me.

I got a delay on my background check, but I figure it's because my license and address are brand new.

So, I'll post pics when I bring them home.
Don, what great news. Enjoy those new guns. I have rubber Hogue grips on my revolver and I agree they're ugly (and they don't come in pink) but I can't imagine shooting my .357 magnum with anything but those rubber Hogue grips.

Thanks, Cane, I understand the roll effect. Can you further explain the sphincter pucker effect?

WOC Canebreak is a gentilman. This occurs when you expect to recieve pain from any outside source. You may feel uncomfortable tightness in the area of that muscle.

I know you are correct. But I grew up on Sweet Tea and Grits. My North Carolina "Mam" would take a Peach Tree limb to any boy offending a lady.
