Yeh I know they are a bit flashy but it was a consideration. I've kinda debated on them partly because the gun has a soft appearance to it and those obviously don't. Olympus you have many good options! As I said I love how easy it is to customize these guns, thanks for showing me some of the possibilities I have.

But I can always count on you to be sure an include me. Not only here, but elsewhere too. It doesn't go unnoticed and it's greatly appreciated!
Thank you sir!!

Check out vz grips. They have very nice grips and some really nice hardware as well. Worth the look.

Should you ever be forced to defend your life with this tool, it will become "evidence", an the chance of an anti-self defense prosecutor, flashing those "evil" looking grips at the jury, is a real concern.

Just my .02 Cents...

Agree the district attorneys office love's to use anything to make it look like you were looking for a reason to use it.why i never carry reload,s in my carry gun they will try anything to prove you made so called mankiller reload,s. stick with the commercial common look on a carry or may use for home protection and ammo for that role. just my extra cent worths.

just out of curiosity, have you any real knowledge that any DA has gone after anyone for their choice of ammo selection for their firearm, or is this simply some type of speculation on your part?

if you have some pertinent information on this, i would like to some sort of links to that information. i'm sure others would as well.

I must agree with axxe55, while I can see where you're coming from, I would like some factual instances on that. Given that, I do know when they started to really crackdown on street racing (I'm a mechanic and race *not street race*) I think it was California were trying to pass something where if you modified your car at all it would be assumed to be for street racing and they could confiscate it. I say that because I do know it is possible, I would just think that something as simple as grips wouldn't give probably cause to put you behind bars.

YES the da will use anything in some states to convict the self defense shooter, its documented fact that reloads are a bad idea on the street but you can do as ya please ,just know what ccoa has posted and read in guns and ammo a few times. exact examples ?im sure if you look long enough you will find some that the da claimed it was a case of he made mankiller bullets and was with intent to kill well duh, but to a jury???? ide rather be on the side that used what was on shelf and not have that worry .If it says self defense ,personel defense on box , they have no arguement ,never think they cant do something , they want ya they will get ya on anything they can think of.do as ya please, me im sticking with whats on shelf on streets.Fine line between justifiable and prison my freind.jmo.
