Not long ago I posted about following the #kydex hashtag in Instagram, and how not all folks making holsters really know what they’re doing. Today I came across even more derp, and I had to share it. So, if you want to see a bunch of
completely ruined tactically stippled Glocks try this:
- Go to Armslist
- In the search bar at the top of the page, type “stippled” or “stippling” and hit enter
- Click on listings and laugh uncontrollably while wondering what these folks were thinking
This one is one of the best… (probably a troll post, but someone had to actually make it…)
Listen, I’m not anti-stippling. If you feel like you need some extra traction, adding some extra texture to the pistol is a quick fix (although I’d push you towards grip tape before you grab the soldering iron) and I’ll be honest, whenever I see a pistol done up by Boresight Solutions I drool a bit. Here’s the thing though, don’t fire up the soldering iron, and go to town on your new Glock without any practice. Pmags are a pretty inexpensive part to practice on, as are removable backstraps both of which won’t ruin the re-sale value of your pistol if you screw up and burn a hole through it.
