    Looks nice.......................I had some grips like that on a Beretta. That shine comes in handy if you want an a hole to see his reflection right before you shoot.

    I wouldnít ever carry something like it, but catch your drift. Kinda hard to miss seeing it in the sunlight. If I ever do sniper work, it would not be my go to, for a few reasons

    Not even to a BBQ? I'd carry it with pride every day. People get way too worked up about shiny stuff reflecting. Most times folks will only see it for a second or two before the big flash.
    Had officers insist on blued magazines, they wore and looked like heck in no time. Probably a bit more appropriate for officers but never bothered me in the least.

    Iím hoping that one day Floriduh will have open carry. If so, Iíd buy a nice leather holster and wear it for sure. I have to iwb anything for now and would not want to sweat up all my hard work. Also, I would have to train a bit to get used to thumbing off the safety as Iíve always carried guns that either have no safety, or the safety off, which I wouldnít do with a 1911. Supposedly, Desantis and crew are going to push for open carry and constitutional carry next year. We shall see. Keeping my fingers crossed. I have a STI (5Ē) that Iíd love to open carry too. If that day comes, it may be my final polishing project as it is stainless & alloy, which begs for a polishing! Cheers!

    Get a Garrett IWB holster, I don't think sweat would be a problem. The solution for the safety is to just send it to me. For your safety of course.
    I offer this as a public service don't cha know.

    I have heard good things about those Garrett holsters. Might just get one should Desantis pull it off. I greatly appreciate your looking out for my safety that way. Yer always such a kind hearted fella!
