Re: How to customize your 1911 grips
Hotsights... No that's not my company... this holster is something that I came up with after purchasing and using Thunderware/Smartcarry/Lightningware type holsters... I was hooked on the style of carry, but I really thought that a more comfortable one could be had so I proceeded to research some materials that I thought would be better especially when the weather got warmer. It took quite a while but I finally located some special nylon webbing with a special bonded nylon foam on one side which created the air flow I wanted especially in "deep" concealment. At first glance, one would think that the mesh would be a snag point and rightly so if it were not for the fine woven nylon foam liner on the inside. On the side that goes against you body, I have lined that with an addition moisture barrier to help with corrosion from perspiration. I think guns should be wiped daily especially in hot humid conditions anyway.... but it doesn't happen. I told a few of my friends about it and they wanted one... so that's how it started.. they thought I should try and market it.. wife named it the Phantom. If anyone you know likes that style of carry... let them know about mine.
A friend of mine is going to send me some Koa wood from Hawaii... any chance you might want to try some for a set of grips when and if I get some?
