    Interesting... veeewy interesting.

    My suggestion for anyone wanting to try it? Get a $10 airsoft ABS plastic spring gun to practice with.

    I've got skate tape on my grip, which was there when I bought it used. Tried a rubber slip-on grip, but I think my aim suffered a little from the cushiness of the rubber, and the way I squeezed it when firing.

    I'm kinda curious about this though. I bet you could do some interesting custom designs as well... sorta low-res scrimshaw.

    Is it true that this would disqualify a gun from IDPA or the stock category of IPSC?

    Okay, that just cracks me up that adding stripes would disqualify you from a division... I mean sure, we all know that adding stripes to a car makes it drive faster, right? :lol:

    obviously the wrong place to take this issue up as none of us can really do anything about it but...

    why would "they" want to take you out of production for hard chroming your m9 (changing the factory finish)? what the poop? are they concerned that it would alter the weight of the pistol, or slow the slide down, or improve the draw... what gives. i was really warming to the idea of having mine hard chromed as i start to notice some holster wear. but not if it knocks me into a more "hopped up" division.

    life is full of silly rules, but these rules are really silly. i wonder if "they" really pay close attention because a lot of the xd guys get their guns refinished pretty early on.

    idpasteyr had his hard chromed. idpasteyr, are "they" hassleing you about it? does it knock you out of stock service pistol?

    I have seen some jobs that look nice. I don't think I would try it on my own and I am a habitual "do it yourselfer"

    If you have the right tip, it isn't that hard and you can actually go over any mistakes and reshape them.
