Jury is still out on practicality. I made the swap primarily out of the concealability concern, as that old grip printed like the dickens. But I haven't shot it yet, so we will see. I have big hands, so on one side of it I am definitely losing some surface area on the grip, but on the other my hands may be able to absorb some of what was lost with the previous grips. Will report back after range day.

But your gun looks good with the classic grips.
It's interesting, because I actually bought the 357 with the intention of mainly shooting 38 special out of it, but wanting a little more weight. I find that I vastly prefer shooting 357, and shoot it much better. Of course, that is with the beefier grips, but I have yet to be turned off by any of my 357 loads.
