Deductive reasoning is also a thing. If it's less comfortable and less appealing in handling, it's not going to be magically more comfortable when the primer lights. You learn these things when you spend 30yrs swapping grips around on nearly 100 revolvers. As I said, the BFR is a dead ringer for the Super Blackhawk. Which I do own and have fired extensively. It works and doesn't bust my knuckle but still prefer the Bisley or FA. I'll say it one more time, that is MY opinion and MY preference. I do not require anyone to agree with it or conform to it. Nor do I care to endlessly argue about it.
