Looks like smilach's dog got a hold of another Glock.

In addition to the obvious damage, the bottom of the grip now bites into my palm. While I can still seat and extract a magazine, firing the weapon would definitely be uncomfortable!

Is this a job for Glock USA? Maybe someone who does grip reductions/repairs? Is a repair even possible or do I have to locate a new lower for my Gen 2 23?

In the pipe world, we'd call that "rusticated."

It's the werewolf Glock. It should be considered a felony doing that to a perfectly beautiful gun.

Someone needs to invent some "Stripple Spackle " to fill in bad stripple jobs like that.

To add insult to injury that is a picture that showed up in his Photobucket account of a pistol he used to own!

Has anyone taken a multi day handgun class in the middle of the summer where you are expected to perform? How about shooting out of a blazing hot vehicle that has been cooking in 100deg+ temps all day? You can't always stop and take a nap in the shade at your leisure.

When the sweat is running down your arm and dripping from your fingers you'll understand.

Stippling isn't about, "looking right." Stippling is about function.

Non shooters commenting on function. Never a good combination.

I notice you like to comment on people that you categorize as "non-shooters", when you have NO idea about the people or their shooting status, but yet you "call out" as being, in your own words, "non-shooters". Here's one for ya,...non knowing/**** talking posters commenting on people that you have no idea who you are talking and commenting about. Never a good combination.

Yeah Joe, he's the biggest troll I've seen on GT in at least five years.

He has no idea who he's talking to, yet labels people "non-shooters".

I have, TDI in southern Ohio.

10-11 hours a day, running 500+ rounds daily.
That foolish degree of so called 'stippling' does one thing; it causes injury to the shooter's hand and nothing more.

If your "shooting requirements" demand somethig more abrasive than skateboard tape, rubber grip sleeve, A-grip, etc., maybe you should rethink your choice of handgun.

Less pseudo-doing, more learning.

Yeah, I bet that guy was worried about what strangers on Glocktalk thought about how it looks compared to keeping the little plastic turd secure in his hand while shooting.

Oh wait I forgot. Stippling is horrible. Who cares about the level of function when it reduces the firearms value by 25% as stated in the other stippling thread. Because in the end it's a guns value, not the function that matters most.

When individuals put looks over function it's a fairly good bet that they do not shoot on a regular basis in inclement weather or at all. It's probably a safe bet to say they haven't ran a firearm with stippling as well.

Granted, no matter how strong the feeling it's still an assumption. After all the claims of other's age, living situation, etc. I figured assumptions were GTG on this forum. I have a feeling my assumption is spot on. There are always exceptions however.

I may not like that particular style of stippling but I'm not going to sit here (well, drive) and talk about how horrible it looks when it's all about function. When picking out a hammer do you worry what color the handle is? You do if the hammer is just going to sit in the garage and never get used. Would you wear a jacket that looked good even though it didn't keep you warm or would you grab that ugly coat that kept you warm?

I baffles me that people would worry about looks when dealing with a tool.

Maybe the guy should bedazzle the grip thus giving added texture for improved grip all while giving the gazers something to gaze at.

Maybe that's one of them Glocks used by people who continually deal with oil and other slippery things....



On a serious note, if it works....then great!

I can't say that really looks any better or worse than any other stippling job photo I've seen.

To each his own, but I sold my Gen3 35 and replaced it with a Gen4 35 rather than going down this one-way path.

If you think stippling a handgun solves anything, think again.

What about your backup gun, your replacement gun, your buddie's handgun, your spouse's gun, etc?

That is why I stippled my hand. Now every handgun fits me perfectly and feels like a $3000 custom gun.


Hahahahahahahaplop! (laughed my butt off)
