We all have favorites

38 Special: how does the recoil differ from a standard Ruger or Colt SAA. I've read that some feel the Bisley grip better handles heavy loads, but I've never had the chance to try one out. Best Regards, Rod
I prefer the Bisley for everything. It just fits my hand better, and points more naturally - and honestly, I've come to prefer the appearance as well. (Heresy, I know.) I do strongly believe that the Bisley grip is better for real power - with anything at or beyond .44 Magnum levels, the traditional plowhandle starts becoming uncomfortable and harder to control, for me - but I limit this gun to the Skeeter load at most, so it's a moot point. I'd say it's a purely personal decision, and for a fellow who is happy with his plowhandle, then that is the whole story.
Bannock: I like your Blackhawk with aged looking off white grips.
Are they aftermarket?
Thought they might look good on my Blackhawk

When it comes to guns, I'm sure we all can agree everyone has their favorite revolver, auto , and so on. Maybe we inherited these guns, maybe we were given them as a gift. More than likely we worked hard and saved to get the guns we have today.
My S&W 29-2 was just that. Saved, searched and found this excellent+ condition example a while back.
I've always been a 44 magnum fan because of Elmer Keith, Dirty Harry and Nick Nolte in 48 hrs.
Love my vintage Ruger New Model Blackhawk, but this 4in S&W is my favorite gun I own.
