Bought my first gun today!

Recommended Posts

Have you fired the gun yet? Just asking because my wife and mother had a hard time with the lady smith wood grips. I saw the crimson trace grips part #lg405 or lg-405 and was considering getting a set of those. They looked like they would be a lot more comfortable.

My husband has the same gun with the black finish and ive shot his. I really like the rubber grips, it makes you feel like you have good control even though its a smaller gun. I cant wait to shoot mine.

And yes, my first gun. I had already picked out a second one to play with at the range. Its the Julie Goloski M&P 9mm. Just waiting for Hero Gear to get one in stock.

I also found a very nice stainless version of my husbands Wilson there on Saturday;)

Great first choice, Mrs. T. Great only choice, if it had to be - luckily it doesn't (yet - but we may see what a couple years of the obamalama brings us - lets' hope not).

You're assuming he'll live that long, if he makes office.

Given whoever he's likely to pick as VP, and Nancy Pelosi being third in succession, it is very unlikely that it would make a difference. Not to say that some idiot wouldn't try it, but this election resembles 1860 more than it does 1960.

He's all about hope and change, and I think thats' an accurate description of where we'll be two years in - hoping for a change.

lets hope even if he is elected that nobody decides to remove him from office.

The anti-gun sentiment would be enormous and way worse than him being in office.

Back on topic, I understand woman like pink, ( no idea why really) but them grips are seriously ugly. That is not a very nice looking shade of pink.

Bad news...

I called Smith & Wesson this morning and spoke with a guy in their customer service department. He was familiar with the grips in question but stated that they did not have them or at least did not have them for sale separately. He directed me to a manufacturer of the pink "pearlite" grips which I think are pretty hideous.

Now I have to break the news to my wife. :D

That was not my favorite shade of pink either but there are very few options and so far weve found none for that particular gun so Im not being very picky. :D

It just wouldnt be me if it wasnt pink :D

Mrs. T by googling around a bit I bet you can find some sort of pink grips for that gun. I have seen several grip makes that do all sorts of colors.

The problem that we're having is that none of these manufacturers make rubber grips in pink. They all make hard grips in pink or, worse yet, pink pearl. So the search continues. :hyper:

I made a joke about the pink sharpie but how about dyeing them pink with some automotive dye.Dye the black rubber first with a white or primmer followed by pink?Im sure it would stick but not sure how well it would hold up on a handgun.Think that would work?

It might. Duracoat has a product made for grips. I may check into that. :)

what about adding hints of pink to the frame using duracoat?

maybe the indents on the cylinder, the grip screws, the cylinder release, maybe the backstrap...

Grips can easily be swapped back out, should she ever choose to sell it (always a possibility, no matter how happy you are with a firearm). A duracoated pink handgun might be a little bit harder to part with. Not to mention looking hideous. :lol:

Hey now, it would not be hideous, but I agree I am trying to stick to accessories that could be swapped out easily if we did decide to sell it. Although, I think ill probably hang to it for a while :D

Why would someone ever sell a gun in the first place? :Said the man with the Jimenez somewhere in the back of the closet:

Nope, not a stupid question. Hero Gear is in Winchester, TN. You can click on one of their banner ads (shown randomly at the top of pages here) or just go to www.hero-gear.com for their address and contact info.

As for the matter at hand...

I think I am going to order another set of the OEM grips from Smith & Wesson and use Duracoat with flex-agent added to paint them pink for her. That should work according to what I've seen on other gun forums.
