    I used to think that the OD green was ugly, too. Then I went to get my P99. The ONLY one that I could find in NH at the time was in OD. I went down to the shop, and decided that it wasn't THAT bad. It's actually growing on me,

    to the point that,


    well,


    you might actually say, that ,well,

    I've seen them P95, never tried one though. I sort of like the CZ52 grips like they are. As a matter of fact, my other (unpictured) '52 is in the darker blued finish, I put checkered walnut grips on it, they are slightly fatter than the originals, and I actually find that one slightly less comfortable to hold and shoot. My hands are not all that large, and with the CZ52's grip being uncommonly long front-to-back to accomodate the Tok cartridge, I find the original grips are about the right width to fill my hand.

    I actually had my heart set on the XD40 in OD, until I actually put my hand around it. In person, the OD was REALLY green, not muted as I hoped. I ended up with the more traditional black/stainless XD40. More money, but worth it to not have the BG laugh when you pull your piece...

    I too like the black traditional, but.... my Beretta 92FS in olive drab really really looks so good with walnut grips (although I have Crimson Trace Laser grips now ) sitting in a desert camo holster or the Galco vertical carry brown shoulder holster !!

    A beautiful gun is Blue Steel with wood grips. IMHO all "plastic" guns are ugly, but they work usually every time all the time. I have a few ugly guns one of which is OD. It is no uglier than the other ugly guns. But as I said it works all of the time every time.
