    No offense to anyone!!! But what is the fascination with Punisher Grips. WHY would you put punisher grips on a 1911? I havent seen any Superman or Batman grips, but I sure as hell have seen my fair share of Punisher grips.

    Please explain the fascination.

    Why not? I have a pair, just not on a gun. Also have an umbrella corp lower.

    Just something different I thought was cool to have at the time

    To each his own; if you don't like them, don't buy them. I fail to see the problem here lol.

    That being said, I don't buy them either but I don't question "why?"

    I dont know if The Punisher had punisher grips on his 1911s but they were badass. Not a comic expert but he had to be one of the first "heroes" that used guns instead of some freakish superpower or gadgets. Ultimate badass. if you like punisher and ultimately got into guns, you would probably want the icon on at least one gun.

    Just like batman stuff, the icon was on everything. The icon itself was as feared as the hero.

    Putting superman grips on a pistol, while okay for superman fans, would not be the same. Superman didn't use guns. Neither did batman. Punisher did.

    I don't get it either. The last thing I'd want on a beautiful 1911 is a set of goofy grips, but to each his own.

    :shocked: LIKE THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO HAVE ON YOUR EDC IF YOU EVER HAVE TO USE IT!

    (I wonder, 'Where' George Zimmerman would be, right now, if he'd had a Punisher Logo on his Kel-Tec?) :headscratch:

    That's a good point, I'm sure it could be skewed in so many different ways in a trial.

    It doesn't matter what someone wants to put on their guns.
    It's their choice. However. If they had something like that on a gun that was used for something other than punching paper. They may find themselves having to justify their choice of grips in a court of law.

    It's something to put on a target gun or match gun, but not one that could ever be used for self defense.

    Why does someone put 13" wheels on a car?
    Why does someone put a goofy azz wing on a bone stock Honda?
    Why do people put fluorescent lights on a bike?

    Why ask stupid ****in questions, when you already know the answer?

    Because they WANT to.
