    Heres a my new grips for my ruger feels pretty good. Ok its just skateboard tape and it was free, I went to my local skateboard shop to look for some skateboard tape while looking at it a guy working there ask if i needed some help i told him i was looking for some tape for my gun and low and behold he took this good size part of one that was in the garbage 8 or 10 inch long and about 4inch wide and side here you can have it. He said he would hate to sell me a big one just so i could cut some and use for my grips, just goes to show you there's good people out there.

    I had a buddy in the Army who Rhinolined his pistol grips, his brother-in-law worked for a shop that Rhinolined truck beds, and did 'em for free. They looked pretty cool, and were very durable and 'grippy'. I wish I had taken a picture of that.

    Hold on tight. If that grip slips during recoil you may end up with a nasty rash on your hand. Otherwise it looks good and should work for you.

    those "grips" will really give you a firm hold.

    Might be a bit rough on the hands after a few hundred rounds fired at a day at the range, Nice though!

    you can always dull down the grip a tad with some 120 grit sandpaper. i had some talon grips on my glock and did that
