    You’d have to either weight the grips or somehow move the pivot point more towards that top side plate screw to alter how the gun balances.

    Like the original Barami, this setup rides great behind the hip. I have mobility issues from surgery and carry in front of the hip exclusively. Like the Barami, this works really well with a Graith belt, equally stable as a Clipdraw setup with about a quarter-inch lower ride.

    I am almost back to closing a 1.5 Captains of Crush with my dominant hand; I can’t make these things flex.
    Well, you may be a man. You may be a leprechaun. Only one thing’s for sure… you’re in the wrong basement.

    @JRV, how’s the texture/finishing?

    Eagerly awaiting the LCR version to release.

    I might have to give those a try. And I just started working on my sore hands and a case of trigger-finger (middle). I can close the 2.0 with my dominant hand, so it's definitely getting better

    It is coarse but not sharp.

    It feels like sawcut endgrain of a tightly grained wood. Another close comparison is the texture of the Graith belt itself, except a little “tighter” and “stickier.”

    I ordered two more sets.

    I was having dinner with DB and the Missus the other night, and just got his. He remarked how it also smoothed out the grip for a draw from a front pocket holster. I experimented with an unloaded 342 and agreed.

    This moves that pivot point further up. Might work for your specific purpose. No personal experience with this model but their J frame ones have served me well.

    I’m holding out for them to do a high horn centennial specific run… I emailed them about it and it’s one of the ones they’re considering.

    From my workout feed this morning. I check my email regularly to see if they've notified me they're in stock. Would pre-order if they let me.

    Following DB on FB/IG, it seems he (and Rhett plus others) are in the final T&E examinations of the LCR flavor.
