    So I finally made up my mind to stipple my EDC, a KAHR PM40. After a little practice on a few polymer CIA knive I picked up from the army navy store & a few DIY videos on YouTube I gave it a go & was very happy with the results.

    How does it do on your clothing? Is it going to snag your undershirt? The RTF2 makes my shirt inch up and I constantly have to pul it down. Well, I did. Now I carry something else.

    Just finished it up this evening so I couldn't tell you. After stippling I did use a piece of fine grit sandpaper to get rid of any sharp blemishes so it should ride fine.

    Just make sure you alternate carry sides so your love handles match :)

    There is stippling and then there is melting holes in plastic.Big difference.

    Unless you're doing it for yourself, and going to keep that gun, stippling (especially amateur one) will be a hard sell, and value of the gun will drop by at least 25%.

    :rofl: Probably would have been better off getting some Talon grips for it. At least that is reversible.

    Very nice work.

    I recently stippled my Glock and the frontstrap on my LCP and I love the way they feel now.

    Regardless I love the new feel. Took both guns to the range the other day and neither jumped from my hands anymore. While the PM40 is a tiny gun with a big caliber and the 21 is an all round big gun I had no problem at all with follow up shots. I don't buy guns to sell them, or even trade them so a little custom work to make the gun more suitable to me makes sense. Reguardless to what I might or might not have done to the value, it works for me.
