I'm not crazy about the grips personally, but that's just me and it's not my gun. Either way, your TLC came out great and I hope you enjoy!

That is real classy looking. I think the badgers are a nice compliment.

I polished it with Mothers Aluminum and Mag Polish, go get some at autzone, haha.

So, I had heard amazing things about the grips, not just how they look, but how they feel, and I must say its entirely true.

I went out this morning with some .38 spl range ammo, .38 +P HP's and some .357 Semi Jacketed flat nose.

The .38's were a breeze, as they always are. However, I was INSTALTLY more accurate. I was popping bottles at 25 feet without hesitation, something which was a slightly difficult task before.

My groups on paper tightened up also, even when shooting at about 1 second intervals. I'm not saying I couldnt hit anything before, I would do fine on paper, when practicing defense shooting but bottles were a little more difficult because 1 inch off and you dunno if you hit anythhing.

This is obviously not a target gun, haha, which is why I practice somewhat rapid fire from close distances.

Anyway, It could have jsut been a good day, but i'm going to say the better grip and alignment of my hand made all the difference.

The .38 +P's were a breeze too, and even the .357 was comfortable to shoot! Larger grip area I suppose, and a better fit. I lost my pinky grip from the pervious CTC's I had on there, but i was more accurate and had better control even when shooting magnum loads, and they werent even painful!!!!

Great to hear! Grip angle sure can make the difference. Ask the 1911 guys.
