    Well, it finally happened. I drooled over enough pictures here with all manners of beautiful grips that I just had to join the club.
    These are the first “fancy” grips I’ve purchased. I have to say they are spectacular. Thank you to Jon @Highfiguregrips for two beautiful sets of grips. I might be in trouble now! :o.o::)

    The real problem is I don’t own a pistol worthy of such fine wood! I’m going to have to send off my recently acquired Colt commander to one the fine smiths here to make it worthy.;)

    Jon, is turning out some incredible grips! By the end of the week I should have two more Ironwood burl double diamond checkered grips. One set goes to a friend from his wife for their anniversary, the other set is for the Colt Gold Cup National Match O5873A1 38 Super I am waiting on!

    Really nice grips!

    Awesome! Congratulations sir. I jumped on the bandwagon earlier this week as well. The gun they're going on is a bit out still. When Steve gets done it will be my favorite Springer.

    I pulled the trigger on 2 Baer sets this morning, he was nice enough to model them both before I bought, then asked which I wanted ambi cut at no charge. I'm pumped! This site and all the skilled craftsmen associated with it will ruin a fella

    I do as well. I appreciate the fact that they provide a functional grip surface while still showing off the wood figure quite well.

    True, also looking at the matching knife handles to go with the 1911 grips.

    Well two more of Jon's beautiful Desert Ironwood Burl, checkered with mirror image medallions are on their way. One set is for a friend on his anniversary, a present from his wife. These folks are like a brother & sister to me. Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and the occasional get together.
