    Still have a couple sets. One black, one polished.

    I need to do this one of these days, as I too, occasionally get bit by the back side of the trigger on my 442. I don't recall it happening with my 60-10, but I shoot the 442 more. I'd be inclined to use a needle file for any coarse work, and then clean it up with a stone/ceramic afterwards, and maybe hit it with a Dremel for a final polish if needed.

    The 404
    I really like the Hogue Tamers, and the Ergo Delta Grips are good, too. Both of those grips really help with handling J-frame recoil, but they compromise the ability to pocket carry. Also, the Ergo grips look absolutely hideous, and I canít bring myself to use them, especially as I find the Hogues work just as well for me.

    I donít pocket carry, but I do really like the idea of cutting the Hogue grips down some from upthread/the other thread to improve concealability.

    Long fingers have been my largest hold up on being able to shoot a j frame well. I canít tuck my thumbs or my trigger finger hits my thumbs. If I use a thumbs forward type of grip the cylinder release tears up my thumb. I currently run the crimson trace lg 405. They are just too small I think and I canít seem to master the laser. I either only look for it or only for the sights.

    I tried the delta ergo grips and really liked it but it despite how ugly it was but it didnít work with my DSG kydex holster.

    On a J frame they are still too small for most with XL/XXL hands.

    Something that covers the backstrap and adds material from to back like the Taurus or crimson trace boot grips is required.
