    Purchased some grips for my wife's gun (Mother of Pearl) from GunGripSupply.com and they cracked after 100 rounds. So I called them and they informed me that their pistol grips are not meant to be used for shooting very much but the wooden ones don't crack as easily. Luckily they are refunding my money. Lesson learned. Make sure the grips you buy are suppose to be used for shooting.

    LOL. I have a couple of older revolvers with "Genuine Mother of Plastic" grips. Same concerns.
    I don't carry a weapon and look for trouble, I carry one just in case trouble finds me.

    Wow RugerRon, next time I clean the guns I better look for grips not meant for shooting very much.

    Haha when she told me that all I could do was stutter and couldn't get any words for like 15 seconds, it was hilarious. I said where on the website does it state that! Then she cut me off my ramble saying she would give me a refund. It was funny it sounded like she hit my mute button, I just shut-up and said OK thank you. It did through me for a loop when she said well you're really not suppose to shoot with them that much. Anyways it all worked out except now I have to tell my wife I have to put the rosewood grips back on her Taurus PT22.

    ...kinda like my lovely spouse's paintings that seem to dominate our home...cost a small fortune, but you can't eat 'um, drive 'um, shoot 'um, makem whoopee to 'um, no SD protection advantage, looks like "do what!"...ad nauseam...what's the point, especially when she threatens divorce every time I buy a new gun (gains two + marks)...been going on for 48 years, so I suppose it ain't a real issue, 'cept the dang paintings still arrive and I don't get the message...it's there and I'll continue to look for a logical answer, but....HELP!....

    What? Are they selling custom grips for toy guns or airsoft pistols. They must be for safe queens or display pistols.

    I have considered different grips on the 1911. If I do I will make sure I get shooting grips.

    I've got a nice set of mammoth ivory grips on my black Kimber TLE. Looks awesome. I've shot a few boxes thru it and have not had an issue, yet. But I'm sure if I did, Dan Chinnock would take care of it.

    And this question begs to be answered... Who, is the manufacturer of these grips? Seriously though, a gun accessory that they don't expect you to really use?!!?

    I just wonder if she evan knows what she's talking about, or if maybe it was a problem batch of grips and that was thier "canned" answer. Good that she volunteered to refund them so quickly!
