    Just curious if you shoot thumbs forward, and if so whether you've tried it weak handed with those grips.

    I had a set of LG-308s I put on a 686 that were the bees knees until I tried a magnum round with them. The laser assembly housing-- with the same thumbs forward grip I've used for tens of thousands of rounds left handed-- goes straight into the tenderest part of the knuckle. No bueno.

    Not necessarily a fault of the grips themselves I suppose, but something everyone should try once just to see how it affects them. Especially if not putting in a lot of weak handed reps. (for rightys - southpaws will figure out whether it's go/nogo PDQ)

    Funny, I'm left-handed and have never had any problems.
    The simple fact of the matter is this, America has never not been great.

    No problem. My thumb points down when I shoot support hand only.
    it seems to cause some people real emotional anguish not to insist, at every opportunity, no matter how irrelevant to the discussion, that you....

    Reading this thread makes me want to reconsider the purchase of a 38/357 J frame !

    I use an XS Big Dot front sight and Pachmayr Compaq grips on my EDC, and the Compaq grips on any J Frame I shoot regularly.
