and usually those wishing to learn about firearms try and learn the proper terminology.

I have a Springer too & have only had this issue when I changed grips to VZ composite grips.
I have never had this issue with wood grips (which are somewhat softer than the composites and will allow you to tighten them down a bit tighter and the softer wood seems to cushion/absorb vibration better).
However, to solve this problem, I simply went up to Lowes or Home Depot and bought a very inexpensive set of the smallest rubber O-rings. I forget the size. I can look when I get at home. This will completely solve the problem (unless you just want to buy new grip screws - but you will likely have the same issue with new screws as well unless you get the O-rings).

Yeah they're just people. Problem is that since they work there, they think they know. Truth is they know their opinion, which tends to make them ignorant or full a crap. Because they're people after all, and we all know how people can be
