When I reached age 21 my first handgun I purchased was a $40 Raven .25 as that was all I could afford on $5/hour. Years later my first serious handgun was a Ruger SP101 in .357. I carried it for a while and put a Hogue monogrip on it to make it more controllable. However, it was no longer "pocket-able" and eschewing the fanny-pack of the day the Sp101 entered the safe where it remained for many years. I figured that there were far more many options for a belt-carry handgun than a 5-shot snubnose. Recently I swapped out the factory mainspring for a 10-lb Wolff spring and lightly broke the rough edges on the hammer strut with a fine grit Arkansas stone. I replaced the Hogue Monogrip with the factory Ruger grip. The result is a revolver that is a delight to shoot and once again fits in the pocket. It is reliable with whatever ammo fodder it is fed. Now the J-Frame is in the safe. At least for now.
