Im looking for some input about adding wood grips to my newly aquired smith 642. Im looking for this to take up most of my carry duties and not going to be a range plinker by any means. I love the gun btw I just have one issue. I am carrying it 4 to 6 oclock position IWB and the rubber grip constantly snags and sticks to my shirt. It's a pita to keep making sure my shirt is down and it's not wrapped up inbetween the grip and waist. The rosewood grips are hella sexy but mainly want to replace the rubber with some wood so I can solve this issue. Im looking for some input before I go and spend $60 that they arent too smooth and they are manageable in hand. I would imagine laquered wood would be pretty slippery with a little moisture on the hand but I could be wrong. Thanx in advance and im just basically looking for a yay or nay to solve my problem without sacrificing "too much" grip. :cheers

Yea some come with slight checkering. I just don't want to lose my sidearm out of my hand while in a gunfight with zombies and end up getting taken out while I fumble on the floor with it. I just know they are very common and not always for asthetic reasons.

Get a subcompact glock.:dunno


But on a serious note. If you want, buy the grips and if they seem to slippery(which I doubt) buy some grip tape to apply to the grip where ever you feel you need it.


Just remember a CCW is about function, not about aesthetics.
