    The other option I saw was trying the Taurus brand grip that is short, but also wraps around the back. It looks okay...but, meh.

    Any other options or recommendations based on what you own?
    Theres a guy on here who uses the taurus grips. Hes a LEO in some capacity. Pics should be in one of the j frame threads. He dimpled them for more purchase.
    It ainít over till the fat lady sings.

    Crimson trace 405s give you a little more trigger reach, and the benefits of a laser. If you get them on amazon there should be a return window if you donít like them.

    Interesting. Anyone else using these?

    Iíve got Pachmayr Compacs on one of my Jframes. They really make for more of a handful of grip when compared to boot grips, with a nicely covered backstrap and increased trigger reach. I also have a pair of Grippers that came along with a Jframe once upon a time. They are thinner side to side, but give a full grip and also cover the backstrap with increased trigger reach.

    If you donít cover the backstrap, even if you increase the girth of the grip, trigger reach wonít change too much.

    I got one a while back, and like the feel, but lost the nut the grip screw threads into, havenít replaced it yet, and didnít have it long enough before I lost the nut to have done more than dry fire.

    Sigh, the more I look into it... looks like the Taurus grip is exactly what I want... Iíll have to pop that logo out and fill it or something.

    These stocks were in a sack of revolver stuff I got from an estate last year. They pocket carry well and increased trigger reach. I took them off and put the UM boots back on after a twenty five round range session with my usual 158 grain practice handload.
    Downright painful and donít want to change grips between the range and the street.
    I can easily do a fifty round session with the UM rubber boot grips.
