I've been told I have big hands so I decided to try out the #3 backstrap out. That is the best feeling of a gun I've had in my hand. What do you guys run? I hear a lot of middles.

I tried all three for feel, the #3 felt too bulky, the #2 flt perfect so I went with that.
after shooting about 300 rds I was never happy with my groupings, so decided to give the #3 a try.
Groups instantly were cut in half. try them all out and go with what works, not so much by feel.

Well, the 8" is OK, but the 12"er is a bit ridiculous.

/inappropriate joke.

Funny - I've never even looked. I'm using whatever was on the gun out of the box. Works fine for me (my hands are sort of large, but slender, if that makes sense.

Never even thought of trying the others (I can shoot the gun just fine as is), but I suppose it would be prudent to give them all a 'go'.

Funny, when I read your advice on firearms I think the same thing.

I have small hands and I'm running the number 1, the others just made it feel too oblong for me.
