What Miculek said was clearly evident seen in the shooting he did. The k.i.s.s principle is so true. Glad you pointed this out, which helps in reducing those "complicated variables."
I never quite acquired good shooting skills with the different SA revolvers I've had. That's mainly because I am a member of the group that swears the plow grip is and belongs at the bottom of the barrel. Your suggestion on the "pinky under grip" might have been a good thing to try. I don't know if that is doable on my Russian. It has a lanyard ring on the bottom of the grip plus the trigger spur. This SA revolver provides those two additional complexities!
I'm now dealing with new-to-me grip styles shooting muzzleloaders. It is great to always have shooting challenges to brighten the day, isn't it?
Thanks for sharing your experiences and expertise with everyone.

Jerry Miculek is right when he says you want a grip and technique that is easy to repeat, shot after shot. In other words, don't make it complicated. Keep it simple and something you can easily repeat, shot after shot.
Yup, the pinky under grip on my single actions turns the old plow grip from being what some regard as the worst handgun grip to being the simplest to use handgun grip for me. Dovetails beautifully with the overall simplicity of a single action revolvers.
