    Just picked up my G19 RTF2 today. I've been handling the gun a good bit today and the skin on my palm is starting to peel off. Kinda wondering if I should have gotten the regular framed Glock.

    I like mine. never had a blister or rawness from it and it sticks to your hand nice when you shoot it.

    all my friends with regular glocks that have shot it likes it & said they want rtf next time.

    My G22 RTF2 is still my favorite Glock. Love the grip. Never tore up my hands. YMMV.

    Doesn't bother my hands, but if you look closely in at the frame, you can see skin that has come off.

    I think of shooting as an exfoliating experience.

    love the RTF2, if you've ever used grit tape and liked it, this is perfect.

    You can always tune it to your liking. You can rub off the points with a stone or wet/dry silicon carbide sandpaper. If you go the other way, you have to constantly add something for a better grip.

    Yep, a few light passes with an emery board and mine was perfect.

    I guess i'm the odd man out. I have owned Glocks in the past sold them off for one reason or another. But I really dig the RTF models and IMHO they have brought me back to GLock. So much so that I have bought 4 since the first of the year. 2 glock 19's, a Model 23 and a 22. All RTF models.

    OK, in all seriousness you have nothing to worry about. I've got a G22 RTF and like it quite a bit. The frame texture anchors it really well in the hand and no, it does not cause bleeding gums, hair loss, rickets or any of the other ailments folks report having been caused by the rough texture.

    My Taurus TCP tears my hand up worse than the RTF.

    The RTF2 texture does wear. Mine isn't as sharp and uncomfortable now as it was when new. Now it feels great.

    Trust me, you'll appreciate that rough texture the very second you encounter high humidity or some kind of moisture!
