Ugly duckling for my first contribution to this thread.

Finally got rid of the craptacular factory grips
New grips look spectacular! First thing I did when I got my Hi-Power Mk.II was to take off those factory grips and put some Pachmayrs on! I do have some nicer grips for it but somehow those old Pachmayrs just look and feel right to me (kind of like they're industrial strength grips)!
While I admit that Pach/Hogue grips feel good, I just can’t handle the looks of them. To me, they rob the beauty and soul of a gun. But I don’t judge others. We all have our likes and dislikes. And I definitely understand putting performance before beauty. After all, I’m guilty of uglyfy-ing a few of my pistols with cheap skateboard tape. I do plan on remedying those abortions though when I get the wherewithal.

Just picked this up about 3 weeks back. Had it on order for a while. 43X, with one of the Shield Arms 15 round magazines that are the same size as the two 10 round mags that came with the pistol. Put a hundred or so rounds through it. Feels great and is shooting good
^ I went ahead and picked up a couple 43Xs (with factory nightsights) for the daughters. Shooting with the youngest on Father's Day, she really, really like hers -- put 300 rounds through it in one afternoon!

Just an old fashioned slug job. Noisy.
SR9C and SR1911CMD
Two of my favorite ccw.
I'm going to get rid of the SR9C as soon as I find anything that I don't like about it. I've had it about 10yrs now.
It called to me with a siren's song....
Yeah right, like that's going to happen any time soon! Next you're going to tell me about some bridge you want to sell me in New York!
I don’t hear many people talking about how nice the triggers on those SR9s are. In my experience it’s maybe not the lightest but the feel is perfect to me. A subcompact like yours would be on my list if I wasn’t already planning on getting an S9A1 to fill that role.
Here’s some bonus Steyr. It’s easy enough for me to carry a full size like this. The same pattern but with less slide and grip would be a breeze.
In terms of striker fired triggers, the one on my SRc is one of the best factory ones I have ever tried! Smooth take-up, light release, and a short reset make it really user friendly and along with the great sights, very accurate.
I also have a Steyr, though it's an older M9. Got it because I loved the grip design, the trapezoidal sights, and it also had a decent trigger on it; not quite as nice as the SR9c but good enough for most applications.
I find the trigger on my Canik to be very good for a budget friendly pistol.
My current EDCs
Got some new grips...
The ones on the Rami are very striking.
Hellcat OSP with Shield SMSc red dot. Loving it.
Yeah lol they're definitely different. They look a lot better in person though.
Not a great pic. Couldnt find the Guns and Knives pic thread....
Because I was pleased with the blue grips on my Hi Power, I got some for my Beretta 92 as well.
