You have two options-
1 - Buy more guns (exspensive!)
2 - Send me extra grips (cheep!)

Both are good options. I'm just trying to get my inventory built back up. I was down to 2 sets and getting flooded with emails asking when I was going to start making more. Temps have been way too hot for grip making in my workshop. The last couple days have been cooler so I've been trying to get caught back up. Got that walnut set down last night, got a Honduran rosewood burl done this morning and finish is drying, and got another set half started and hope to finish it tonight. May have some new photos to post in the day or two.
