    Default Plastic grips in the 1/2 price cart at a local shop

    I found a set of Recover Tactical grips, https://www.recovertactical.com , in the 1/2 price cart at a local shop. I'd had seen them on the web and thought them interesting, but not enough to pay the asking price. The set I found was in great shape, so what the heck I'll give'em a try
    I put them on one of my 1911s and think they feel pretty good, especially the front strap. I'm going to leave them on for at least one range trip. I find myself hoping that goes well as the grips have kind of grown on me



    Regards,
    Greg

    I like the looks of those. They look to me like something from one of those sci-fi alien movies of which I’m a fan.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    Interesting but this ole cowboy wannabe will stick with stag.

    Them sci-fi alien movies was always too scary for me. End up on the floor in a fatal position under my blankey sucking my thumb.

    Guess there's 3 things scares me, snakes, bee's and sci-fi movies I reckon.

    Does them grips end up being awfully fat? Kind of hard to tell.

    Thats all right, for me it’s spiders so I completely understand. All spiders must die.

    They add a little to the front strap, but I think they improve the gripping surface there a considerable amount.
    The side panel grip area is about as thick as the out of box, wood grips you find on many different makes of 1911 pistols.

    Speaking of wood, how about this on my SIG 1911-22?

    I think I just shat myself, had there been a sci fi movie clip in there it probably would have been the end of me, too much scary overload.
    There isn't a big enough scattergun for that snake or that spider far as that goes.

    I'm not sure I want to be your neighbor any more. Got serious reservations at the very least.

    My whole life I wanted to be a Texas Ranger, guess I'll check that off the bucket list. Wanted to chase desperadoes and cattle thieves, not snakes and spiders.

    Guess you don't let kids play in the back yard too much huh. Or maybe kids in Texas is smarter than kids in California II (Washington).
    I know they are smarter in Missouri and they get common sense at birth. Don't see that anymore round these parts.
