Get a grip

October 12, 2008 | By admindude | Filed in: Guns, Kevin.

I’m not a big fan of excessive doo-dads and artistic customization of firearms. A gun, no matter how well it’s made, is not a work of art, it’s a tool, and spending thousands and thousands of dollars for engraving and inlays and whatnot on a gun just doesn’t seem right. It’s like pimping out a Porsche: You could, but why would you want to?

And don’t get me started on this
. Dr. Freud, call your office!

However, I needed to replace the grips on my CZ, as the Hogue grips I had on it changed the profile of the gun and therefore are verboten in USPSA Production. The normal CZ grips are thicker than the Hogues, and the CZ is quite thick already due to the double-stack magazine. I settled on thin Bolowood grips from Angus’s shop, and they fit great, even better than the Hogues did.

And they look fantastic, too. Maybe there is something to wanting to make your guns look their best, after all…
