    didnt get to shoot, just fondle and aim at the wall.

    centenial models, genuine sw 38s. looked nice. barrel had the least amount of material between chambers,like tissue paper almost, and on the barrel.

    charter arms pink lady in 38. not bad. good balance and sight alignment for me. rather natural feeling. cylinder a lil sticky, to much pink finish inside the recoil shield. matchbook thickness tween chambers.

    taurus m85, most beef to cylinder and chamber walls real thick.

    judge, well almost clunky, very easy to keep sights ligned up once its aligned. best chamber walls of course.

    ironic that the most sung about of revolvers i got to look at , sw, were the ones that just didnt WORK in my hand, and in my brain either.

    Add a Tyler T-Grip to the Smith and it's a whole different feel.

    +1 playing with different grips. I have preferred grips depending on caliber, frame size, and level of concealment vs. comfort needed.

    didnt have the option of that tho. how do you get over the mental doubt of firing such a thin walled cylinder?

    they need to be thicker because the material is crappy

    Because they are made to withstand well more than a .38+p can deliver, and they do. The j-frame has been in continuous production now for over 60 years.
