    I just had my old school 2nd gen Glock 19 texturized because it's really slick. The guy who did it is a new NoVA gunsmith (NoVA needed another great gunsmith) he also undercut the trigger guard so I can get a little higher up on the gun. I felt his aggressive grip and it was a little too rough and would catch on my clothes and eat up my shirts. So I asked for something softer but still non-slip, something that wouldn't snag. It turned out great.
    The name of this gunsmith who worked on my Glock 19 is Sam Hatfield (yes like the Hatfield vs. the McCoys!:p). He did a fantastic job, and turnaround time can't be beat (1 day!). I'm going to have him do a grip reduction on my wifes G19 3rd gen with a grip chop so it'll take Glock 26 mags. A friend of mine had that done to his G19 2nd gen by Hatfield. I saw it when I was dropping mine off.

    Sam Hatfield is located in Manassas VA in Old Town. He's a former US Army AMU gunsmith (worked with Tony Kidd and knows almost all of the US Army pro shooters). I've handed some other stuff he's worked on and he does some incredible work. He's got a FEG PA-63 pistol which he worked on that has DA and SA trigger pulls which feel like Ernest Langdon Beretta trigger pulls (usually PA-63s feel horrible). Hatfield specializes in 1911s. He can be reached at 703.369.GUNS or on his website at http://www.hatfieldsgunsmithing.com/

    Are you a lefty?

    I was just wondering why he textured the left side of the frame (where you place the pad of your index finger when keeping your finger off the trigger) and not the right.

    Looks great. I like the way he wrapped the stippling around the front grip. I can't imagine the difference in feel.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I shoot with a 'gamer' grip. I get very high up and forward on the gun. Unlike some instructors who teach against contact with the gun. I maintain as much contact as I can get with the frame with my reactive/support side thumb. My grip pressure is about 75% from the reactive/support side and 25% from the shooting hand.
