    After a long search I finally found a nice Security Six at a nice price, and now I want a nice piece of wood for it.

    See my avatar? Do I look like the tough old coot that I am? Or do I look like the recoil-shy baby I also am?

    So if you were as pathetic as yours truly, which style of grip would you prefer? Roper? Something else?

    If you're recoil shy... get wood if you want to look at your gun and rubber if you want to shoot it a lot. I bought an SP 101 with beautiful wood Pachmayr grips but they were punishing to shoot 357s/38 spl+P not as bad. I do a lot of range time so I switched to Hogue monogrip for comfort although they're not pretty.

    Get wood stocks that fit your hand for best results. Herrets will make them for you. If you want even less recoil, shoot .38 Specs in her.
    Big Pachmayrs (not sure about the current production Pachs---they seem to be lower quality) or Hogues will work too, but they aren't wood.

    When I bought my Redhawk, back in 1985, I also bought a Pachmayr Gripper for it, and never even fired it with those wood grips. I had heard all about how it was with the factory stocks, and I was planning some heavy loads for it anyway. The Pachmayr Gripper made it quite the pussycat, and I think it looks great as well.
