SP101 revolver question

Currently have a Ruger SP101, spurless, 2 1/4 bl revolver. The factory grips did not feel comfortable to me while shooting( kind of hard/hurting in the hand). I was thinking of the Hogue grips, but also considering a set of CT lasergrips. Anyone out there have the setup with the CT's on their does it feel in the hand..any problems with a holster designed for one without the CT attached not working with the CT attached..thanks in advance for any help. Mainly concerned about the feel.

Cant comment on the CT grips, but I do have experience with the Hogues and a SP101. If you get the Hogues I prefer the soft rubber vs the hard nylon. I have tried them both.

I've had two SP101s, only have the 3"er right now. My attitude is that if I'm going to carry a .357, I'm going to run hot loads for self defense and I use Buffalo Bore 158 gr JHPs. They run about 1320 fps in my gun.

The factory grips hammer my middle finger (can't do without your middle finger when driving ).

I found the rubber Hogues to be vastly more comfortable, middle and all other fingers are fine. Don

The hogue grips feel better than a woman's breast.

When I was looking at SP101's I liked the look of Trausch grips, they're relatively big though:

I also liked the look of Badger grips, they make two-finger and three-finger versions:

Got to be the wrong woman then
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.
