I don't know if you carry every single day of your life like I do but I have had folks ask me why I do so. Sometimes they follow up the initial question with, "Are you scared? Is that why?"

Here's why:

"...we don?t carry guns because of the odds of needing one, or most of us wouldn?t carry at all. We carry because if, against the odds, we do need one and don?t have it, the cost of being unable to save our own life and the lives of those who count on us to protect them is so catastrophic as to be simply unacceptable."

Thanks took some trial and error before I found what works. Still doesn't hold a candle to some of the work some do but I'll take it over the original grip.

Did you use a soldering iron or woodburner? Did you play with any of the other tips?

I have a project gun I'll get to eventually. I was going to use a bigger square tip and it gives a real aggressive stipple.

I used a weller wood burner. Taped the edges and used a flat tip against the tape for the borders and the thinnest tip for the rest. I messed around with some of the other tips that were more aggressive but just didn't like the look of it.
