I have a pair of checkered wood on my stainless K9. Looks great and, compared with the rubber ones, bulks up the grip so I can get a better grip. Of course, the rubber makes the gun overall thinner, thus better for CCW. But since I no longer CCW my K9, that is not an issue.

Oh, g-d, if only LEOs can be indemnified from willfully ignoring the stupid!
