    This is about the comment I made the other day isn't it. How humiliating. I need to keep my electronic "mouth" shut. :rock: :D It was supposed to be funny. Sorry if it was taken any other way than that. ;)

    There was a thread about grips and I made a smart*** comment. I usually pass those threads by as I don't want to be seen to be promoting my grips inappropriately, but I made an error in judgement and attempted to be humorous. Something I fail at miserably with an alarming regularity. ;) Anyway, I hope I didn't ruffle any feathers, it surely wasn't my intent.

    Ryan, knowing Greg....I'm pretty sure he didn't take you seriously. He's just buttering you up so he can get a discount. :rofl:

    Ryan's grips and CBOBs go together like peanut butter and jelly. :supergrin:

    Ok,.......what the heck did I miss? :wow:
    A while back I received a set of Ivory micarta grips from Sarge for my KC.
    Been thinking about a set for my, soon to be mine, Delta Elite.

    So,.......you're saying I'm a cheap-skate?! :honkie:
    Just wanting to see recent examples of Sarge's work.

    Ryan said he hated you after you recommended Esmerelda grips to someone the other day.

    Oh,........that makes sense then.
    Sounds like Sarge needs to get to checkering grips.

    VBOBs too! :cool:

    Two differences between Sarge's work and the others:

    Sarge's grips taper right to the edges of the front and back strap.

    Dan Wesson's first bobtailed Valor. Note the gap:

    In my case he "puffed up" the palm (swells) that I like so much with KN Nill grips on my single stack Sigs. In that my Valor was the first one that was bobtailed, he didn't have a copycat template to use other than the Dan Wesson ones that I sent to him from which to emulate and extrapolate his cut, fit and finish.
