Here is my latest attempt at greatness..
It's a Glock 22. I didn't carry the texture up under the beavertail like I did with my XDm.
Also tried stippling the mag release on this one.
All in all, I'm satisfied. Less 'snaggy' (to clothing) than the sandpaper grips, but more aggressive than the factory 'bumps'.
Feedback is welcome
And a few more, just cause I want to show off my new 'shoohammer'

Good job. Looks great. But, man, that's a lot of little dots! How long did that take?
Looks pretty good.
How long to do the entire job?

Very nicely done, all the lines are nice and straight, looks very professional. Say, may I have that brass?

Looks AWESOME !
Question...don't those bumps fill up with sweat, dead skin, oil, dirt, carbon deposits over time? How do you clean all that filth out so it doesn't get nasty? I guess checkering would have the same problem, but to a much lesser degree than all those little caves.
Speak softly, and carry a big stick.
Very nicely done. Any issues with attire clinging onto the grip..?
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
I like that a lot very professional looking

Great job! Looks great! I especially like the stippling on the Gen 2 frame; really like the front strap.

Okay, I'll step up and say that although it's a fairly decent job, better than the other you posted, it still looks like a home project. Plus, all those little pores are going to fill up with gunk and grime from your hands unless you spend a lot of time scrubbing it after use.
But it's your gun; if you want to paint it chartruese--go for it.

Looks good! I did my Gen2 also and am very happy with the grip now. It was very slick on a warm day.
A good point was made with the grip getting dirty. I only see it get dirty when I wear my CBST (combat cut) without a tee shirt. It does rub the skin. I use a toothbrush and Gunzilla. Wipe dry with a rag.
