    Stippling a poly gun is a permanent mod obviously. You may want to just run some of the grip-tape applique's instead of permanently altering your gun. Not only is it reversible, it won't affect the resale value of your gun. I don't take permanent mods lightly when doing stuff to my guns. A trigger job or a sight-upgrade is one thing, but someone that you are paying to permanently modify your gun that may have "fumble fingers" is a potentially costly gamble.

    To put the need for grip traction into perspective:

    Next time you go to the range, take a bottle of water, wet your hands and then take a few shots. Then try it rapid fire. It's a real eye opener.

    I've been to several Tactical matches where you had to retrieve your gun from under water. The checkering on my 1911 was just fine, especially with the checkered grips. But with the poly gun it really sucked.

    I don't like skate board tape because it tears up my sport coats, hangs up on clothing and it's too abrasive against the skin. I like the rubberized, stick on decals, but I have seen them move a lot. Probably the heat and/or gun oil & solvents making the glue melt.

    So, for rainy days or when my hands just get sweaty, texturing is the way to go for me.

    I've found the same thing. Hardwood checkered grip panels, or ~20-LPI checkering on front/back straps. By comparison, the poly/plastic surfaces just don't have anywhere near the same level of grip, at least for me.
