    Nothing gaudy or fancy, as long as I can "grip" it securely, so likely something with a checkered finish.

    This has been my preference for nearly 20 years.

    For the best control in inclement weather, those grips are excellent. I use a Pachmayr grip set in basic black. The ribs on the front of their grips makes for a really secure hold with cold or wet hands.

    I like the individual finger loops on that Grip John. Never been a real fan of the M1911 although I had no trouble shooting expert with it in the Corps, but that waz before Kimbar waz even around. My personal choices are for revolvers for the fun plinking tho'. Two that I've owned were both S&Ws. M53. .22 Remington Jet(Did you know that ah 65 grain round leaves the muzzle @ 4000FPS) on that guy?. And my fave iz the M29 Dirty Harry .44 Magnum. I used to deer hunt with that puppy in a shoulder holster under my hunting coat and more then once I waz ask while wondering around the woodz where my gun waz. Eyez would get big when I'd open up the right side of my coat and expose that beast. lol FWIW, I shot one deer in the early '60s and didn't really care for the taste of venison so after that I kicked the game up a notch by going to a two hand hold with iron sights 6" bbl. and had tonz of fun for many many yearz, Jer

    I'm a traditionalist so I like the standard wood grips but I do like the Pachmayr's on John's 1911. I just picked up a new carry gun today. Stainless finish Colt Defender with wood grips. I'd have preferred the blued stainless but all firearms are hard to find now. I'd do the Pachmayr's but I want to keep it as thin as possible to reduce silhouette while carrying.

    You might want to look into night sights also.

    Those are a neat little carry piece. Be sure to take it to the range or where ever you usually shoot and put a couple boxes of shells thru it. The short frame takes some getting used to because the short slide tends to have some serious muzzle climb and some additional felt recoil. The other thing I have noticed about stainless frames is that they tend to have some sharp edges, grab a small stone and flatten as necessary. Nice thing about stainless is that there is no bluing to disturb.

    That .50 cal is on my list, under Not Practical, but Fun As Hell. Still pissed I couldn't get a .44 in green with matching scope.

    For those of you that do not know the story of the Desert Eagle 50, it was developed for the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) as a counter to terrorists who were donning body armor. With the Samson brand Israeli ammo, this pistol packed a sufficient kinetic impact to kill or seriously injure combatants with level 3 body armor, that was designed to stop a 7.62 x 51 Nato round. The ammunition sold is the US is mostly less potent than the Samson ammo, which is why a lot of shooters load their own.

    Dave. At some point I ask myself how much more is necessarily better. I shot competitively for years, hand loaded everything and it's been a great journey. Arthritis in both hands has slowed me down some of late tho'. I've been looking for a Winchester M12 Trench gun to replace my house gun for a while now. Got one of those leaning in a corner of your closet? 12 gauge .00 Buck Shot sendz a pattern at 20' that makes it hard to miss what your aiming at. lol

    For the 45 I like the checkered grips like pictured above, my Taurus 24/7 has a soft grip like this one

    images?q=tbn%3AANd9GcSEvL0qPsxDId5qIeP-4Rkj8xkCP6Bsm86tuA&usqp=CAU.jpg

    I can put quite a few rounds through it and my hands never get sore

    The picture I posted isn't my guy. I grabbed it from the net to show the grips. Mine is an Auto Ordance. I've got a Millet shift on the rear and a flat top post up front.
