THIS is the post that's spot on. Stippling is about function, not looks.

Why do you guys care so much about pretty guns?

As said before function over looks. Liked my 19C when it was stock but after making it mine I like it even more.

I don't think it so much about liking pretty guns..... Probably just a function of not liking guns that looked like someone defecated on.

Look at cold bores guns... They are stipples but still mega attractive. Then look at some of the other guns in this thread that look like the aftermath of an abortion.

A gun can be stippled and not look like dog **** however I'm convinced there are some people out there who think that the nastier and more ruined a frame gets, the better

I can definitely see the benefit of stippling Glocks up to Gen4. But why stipple a Gen4? From my experience, the new Gen4 texture solves the slippery grip issues with Glocks. Just my opinion but I think the Gen4 grip is pretty sweet.

I would generally agree with you, but after a few sessions and having large hands, I find the stippling enhancement to be the best balance for me. This "squid" pattern is proving to be more time consuming to clean, but its ok.

This is not my pretty gun. This is my EDC@ 3.5 o'clock and what will be there when I need it most.

My Sunday guns are for another thread.

Definitely, function is MUCH more important than the looks for one's sd, hd, cc pistol. I never understood people who say glocks aren't as good looking as some other guns - who cares?! If you are a collector, it is probably a different matter.

Nice OP. I love stippling. I wasn't sure about it in the past but after trying grip tapes, slip on grips, etc. and never felt they looked or performed quite like I wanted them too. All of them shifted on me in the heat of the summer (I grip very hard and summer has been damn hot lately). Needless to say, I tried stippling and found that it was the best thing ever. A stippled grip is just too good in the hand to not appreciate.

I like stippling, but I'm not a fan of "divots". The finer, the better. Patterns are also cool, too. Looks good AND feels good.

not a big fan of the 'tree bark' kind of stippling although i have done it for friends, also they seem to like the 'golf ball' type also. i don't charge them anything, they usually give me a box of ammo, but i really don't care. i really like my needle point tip that give me custom control over the heat amount through the unit and pressure with the tip. i like having index points on the front of the handgun where i know that is where i put my thumbs on the left and my index on the right. the thumbs forward index, helps me not to ride the slide stop on all of my guns. YMMV

TexasPOff is the owner of Cold Bore Customs. He did all of those guns himself, as well as the G19 I posted a few above this. If you want it done right send it to him, very reasonable prices as well.

Check his sig for more information.

My first attempt (on a gun) at stippling I love the look and the grip is perfect. I practiced on a lot of other things before hand (air soft guns, PlayStation controllers, glock mag loaders were about the same feel as the glock grip)

I sent my G19 to Cold Bore, I'll let you know how I like it when it comes home. I hope Lane does a good job.

Who cares if it looks good?! It's a weapon that should function - that's it! If ugly-looking stippling improves the grip (and doesn't interfere with any other functions of the gun), then give me the ugly-looking stippling. It sometimes seem like we are ladies at a cocktail party - comparing whose purse looks the best...

I'm not particularly fond of the look of stippling but I'm a huge fan of the way it feels. Both my 23 and 27 are stippled and I much prefer it to the original grip.

Not for me, but hey, it's your gun, enjoy it.

Never had a problem with a slippery Glock grip though.
