One of the best handguns produced. Great for accuracy- trigger control, sight picture, balance. I used a Model 15 Smith when I was 21 to teach myself to shoot right-handed because of my dominant eye. I do everything else left- handed.
IMO ONLY, the original pressures for .357 (Bless Elmer Keith's high-velocity heart!) was 47,000 psi. IMO ONLY, the current pressure is 35,000 psi. That difference is about a 34% increase. Don't shoot 5,000 rounds of 180 gr. bullets at 1,500 fps annually. Find a nice bulk ammo in .38 special and shoot it as much as you do your shotguns. I have a 2.5", 2X 4", and a 6" Model 19. I use 125 gr. Federal Hydro-Shocks in them as self-defense.
If I could only have one handgun, it would be a 6" Mdl 19.
Before I bought a replacement grip, I'd try a Tyler T-grip addition. Fills the underside of the trigger and has a couple of finger grooves. I think I attached the photo correctly.
Keep your barrel up.
