No offense to anyone!!! But what is the fascination with Punisher Grips. WHY would you put punisher grips on a 1911? I havent seen any Superman or Batman grips, but I sure as hell have seen my fair share of Punisher grips.

Please explain the fascination.

I have wondered about that also. Did it all come from that movie "The Punisher"? I did like the movie and it is kind of a cool skull look.

That being said, I don't buy them either but I don't question "why?"

I dont know if The Punisher had punisher grips on his 1911s but they were badass. Not a comic expert but he had to be one of the first "heroes" that used guns instead of some freakish superpower or gadgets. Ultimate badass. if you like punisher and ultimately got into guns, you would probably want the icon on at least one gun.

Just like batman stuff, the icon was on everything. The icon itself was as feared as the hero.

Putting superman grips on a pistol, while okay for superman fans, would not be the same. Superman didn't use guns. Neither did batman. Punisher did.

It doesn't matter what someone wants to put on their guns.
It's their choice. However. If they had something like that on a gun that was used for something other than punching paper. They may find themselves having to justify their choice of grips in a court of law.

It's something to put on a target gun or match gun, but not one that could ever be used for self defense.

I have some S.T.A.R.S. grips on my 92 Elite that a Beretta forum member made, but they were actually on their guns.

I'm currently trying to figure out what pair of 1911 grips to put some Captain America emblems in since he did indeed use a 1911.

As far as the Punisher, I actually like all 3 films but he never put the Punisher logo on his guns. Many people like it on their grips, it's just not my thing.

WHY would you put punisher grips on a 1911? ............

and then people such as myself attempt to answer that question, and just like that a conversation develops.

My feelings on this as well. I think they look cool, but I wouldn't put them on a gun that may be used of self defense. In a trial, the presecutor would have a field day with it. "So, you must think you're judge, jury, AND executioner".

From what I have read on these forums and the posted links, the prosecutor will try his or her best to protray you as a gun nut or enthusiastic killer or whatever it takes to win the case against you. I don't really want to be the one to find out.

I read something in a post on this site a while back about a survey on how jurists view diffent types of home defense long guns, like AR's, AK's, and shotguns. Most of them seem to view AR's and AK's as evil and it colors thier judgement of you. This is another reason why I would never buy a Taurus Judge or any gun named in any way that would make me look like an executioner.

I do think those grips look really cool and I would buy them except for the fact that I wouldn't want them used against me in a trial. I have seen the same emblem on the cover on the back of a Glock slide and avoided them for the same reason.

It is stupid.

People should be comfortable to do what they please with their property. If you want to drive around in a hand painted camo truck, then that is your right.

If a person wants to put punisher/zombie/reaper/whatever grips on their guns. That is there right. Unfortunately though, stuff like that scares the sheep.

Probably not as much as an evil black rifle but it is something that needs to be pondered.

The S.T.A.R.S. grips and Captain America emblem grips I plan to make are on guns that see range use only. If they were going to be carried or used for SD, they'd come off immediately.

People can do whatever they want but there is a time and place for everything and carrying around something with a vigilante's symbol on it is just asking for trouble should you ever need to use that gun to defend yourself. In reality, a carry/HD gun is about having it on you/at the ready and hidden JIC, not for showing off, so why bother?

I'm not telling anyone what they should do, but let's look at how lawyers win cases sometimes. If you think they use facts and nothing but the facts, then you don't know lawyers very well. They'll say whatever they need to and use whatever tid bits they can muster, weather they're the defense or prosecutor, to convince a judge or jury that you are something your not or what you say is not true.

If you think a bunch of jurors are made up of law professors, then you don't realize that they're usually picked by the attorneys themselves. Think they don't pick at least a few that look like they could be easily swayed? Lawyers don't exactly care about doing what's right, but they do care about using anything to their advantage to win.

Again, put whatever you want on your guns. I have all sorts of stuff on my guns, but I keep my HD/SD guns clean and simple because that's my choice. I also think it's kind of a waste to put special grips on guns that don't come out until you put them up on your dresser/nightstand at the end of the day. If you OC, diamond encrusted zombie grips with a Punisher skull for a head might just have people asking "Where did you get those grips?" http://serve.mysmiley.net/winking/winking0071.gif

What do you mean by "combat/tactical" modifications?

Whatever that the prosecutors can dream up. Extended safety lever to quickly snap off the thumb safety. Checkered front strap for better recoil control and quicker second shot placement. Tuned for even more accuracy than factory stock.

You sound like one of them "vigilantes", running around with combat modified guns ready to shoot somebody. Are you some sort of Zimmerman?

Lordy, lordy, look at the gun's name itself: CQB Elite. Pray tell sir, what does CQB stand for? Oh yes, it stands for "Close Quarter Combat". Why as a civilian do you feel the need to do any sort of "Close Quarter Combat"? Isn't that what our fine special forces folks are doing for our country?

How about this scenario?

Sir, you own a gun with a grip that shows the Spartan helmet. Do you know that Sparta conquered and enslaved other Greeks? Do you know that Spartans killed their imperfect babies? Quite a vicious group of people. And Molon Labe? I do believe that is the motto of a bunch of anti-government gun nuts. What does that tell us about your mentality, sir?

Why not put a "F the police" bumper sticker on your car and see how many cops pull you over just because. :whistling:

Maybe one that says "hardcore road rager" would do me good in an accident.

I know it's silly to think a pair of grips or a name of a gun is going to give fuel to a prosecuting attorney but what else do you think they're looking for? It could be a clear cut case that you defended yourself so the only thing left is to nit-pick small details.
