They are plain Hogue grip panels.

There is a member by the name of "WAL" at the Beretta Forum. He does all sorts of Beretta smithing. and, for a fee, he will install medallions in various grips by drilling a hole. He has different color medallions too

If you are just learning about handguns you might want to start with a .38 Special. If you are not used to the .357 you might shy off of it.

I like Ruger's revolvers, well just about any revolver, because the of the grip. I have large hands and the small .380 semi's like Rugers LCP, just do not feel right in my hand.



This is what I carry when I am in a hurry and wearing shorts.



This is what I carry daily.

The Hogue grips work great to absorb the recoil along with the Remington Golden Saber ammo I use. 125 grain has less kick, but is designed for maximum damage in self-defense.

I definitely recommend the Ruger LCR 357! =)
Thanks for the reply. I am going to try to find somewhere I can rent one before I buy one.

Because of the recoil factor? What if I got the 357 but loaded it with .38 like the guy at Turners said I could...then if/when I was ready I could load it up with 357?

Alright. Thanks for the input. btw I see you have a nylon or plastic holster? do you prefer that over leather? and if so, why?

It is a polymer holster. For IWB, the polymer can be thinner than any leather holster can be. Makes it easier to hide such a large gun.

It ok to shoot 38s in your 357. Just clean the cylinder more often.

I was carrying a CZ75 in a cheap Uncle Mike's IWB holster,
but I picked up a G26 and a High Noon IWB holster.
Always wanted something a little smaller and lighter for the summer.
