It's not my cup of tea, then again it's not my gun! If you like it that's all that matters.

This quote is right on.

And for the record, although I did the puking face above for a laugh I will admit that I think cold bores stuff is really cool

If I did stippling in think the only person id feel comfortable doing it would be lane @ cold bore.

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.

Some of mine:

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.
