I am a fan of stippling. I have done it to several guns. Here is a picture of two I stippled. Would I prefer deep checkering? Sure. But I can't draw a straight line, never could, and checkering requires perfectly straight lines drawn on a curved material, special tools, and probably gun-type specific specialized jigs too. Much easier to just grab the old centerpunch and start punching. It helps to use masking tape to border the areas so you don't cross into another area.




BTW, note in these two images the original Mustang 380 allowed safety on with the hammer down. For pocket carry, combined with the Series 80 firing pin, I found that locking of the hammer to be pretty cool as it allowed remarkably safe chamber loaded pocket carry.



When you have a tiny gun with only a small gripping area, or when you may find your hands slippery with blood or other fluids, stippling is very appropriate.

Did you do those ghost stripes yourself? That is pure art.
