    Kudos on the job. I'm surprised you stippled the underside of the trigger guard. I have filed down sharp edges, and even sharp-ish corners around that area.

    I was actually just looking at my grip (literally minutes ago) and thinking about the shaping and texture. Specifically, I was thinking that it would be interesting to do some grip tests while shooting with some kind of sensor to figure out where biomechanical stress occurs on the interface between hand and grip.

    I was thinking about this specifically because I really want to like the Beretta Nano, but I can't because the thing is like butter in my hand... and I have a strong grip.

    At any rate, the stipple-job looks *really* good. You obviously took your time, and you've exhibited the control of a fine craftsman. Congratulations on that.

    As a woodworker (hobbyist), I was also thinking about how raw wood provides such a great texture and grip because of the open pores.

    I used to be a full-time climber (rock, ice, mixed, and alpine), and I also set routes in a climbing gym for cash and free membership. My favorite handholds have always been wood (as opposed to plastic) precisely because they offer such great grip even when there is little texture.

    i think it is a microscopic thing... the wood actually wants to absorb the moisture from your skin, unlike plastic.

    Na, not all from my experience. Wear my right up against my skin all day, feels fine. Its never caught or dragged a shirt either.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Looks very good.
