    The slabside wood that came stock on my RIA just look cheap. I've looked all over but all i can find is ridiculous punisher logo, flames n skulls, or other silly patterned grips. No offense intended if that's your thing, it's just not my speed. The question i have is, Is there anybody selling an inexpensive wood double diamond or plain checkered grip nowadays? thanks in advance for pointin me in the right direction.

    Like most here, I have several sets of grips. Smooth wood, checkered wood, snakeskin, pewter, bone, etc. Funny thing…. My favorite grips and the ones I would choose for tactical situation, are the least expensive, rubber checkered set from brownells for under ten bucks. I keep the prettier grips on for show and tell, but I use the rubber checkered or sometimes the wood checkered on my weekly range visits.
