Thinking on Caleb's mugging incident and the handiness of really small CCW guns.
There is such a thing as TOO small. The grip on a Kel Tec isn't just short, it's THIN. Which is great for concealment, not so great for shooting well.
Look at old snubbie grips vs new.
Old (top) is teenier. New addresses the teeniness. Even those old style grips had little after market add-ons to make it bigger in the hand.
Look at 1903 grips. They seem to bulge a bit, those rubber panels. More than they'd have to. Maybe that was intentional. Thank you JMB pbuh
I'm not a fan of double stack, but I do have that one. The biggest peeve of mine is the fat grip. If given a choice I'd choose a slimmer version of the 229 in single stack if the option had been there... like the P239, but not. (SIG making a narrow grip? HA! Like that would happen.)
The more guns I try the more I like the grip size of 1911s. I even read spots where Cooper thought the 1911 grips TOO big for some hands. It's one of the easiest grips out there. I need to find someone with tiny hands and lots of variety in shooting experience to see if they feel like Cooper did wrt 1911s.
(I'll probably rail about fat grips again...)
Blogs, death. And the death of blogs - Via Sebastian, I learned that Steven Den Beste has died. I remember him from the early days of blogging as well, though I cannot say I was a regular reader...
