I like the S&W as it has a smooth trigger action when being shot. S&W has always produced a great firearm, especially their revolvers. The Model 629 is a great handgun to hunt with as well, depending upon what you are hunting, I do not think it is the wisest firearm to go after bears.

Great looking S&W with the new grips my 629 came with a different set of grips that I bought in late 2010 I had problems with that one and S&W replaced it and the replacement came with those grips like yours.
