Long story, short version; I'm going to the police academy, after being with the fire department for 17 years I will be an Arson Investigator. Still with the FD, just certified as a Peace Officer as well. Issue gun is G17, which I find too large for my hand. So, I got a second G17 that I can have a 'gunsmith' work on. I did a grip reduction and stipple job on it. Here are the before and after photos. The whole story is on my blog.
