    David,
    I have Hogue wood on more than a dozen S&W revolvers and 5 of my SIGs. I love them all.

    So it was only natural that I try the Hogue wood on one of my PPK/s 380s. However, I did not like them. I felt that they were too thick. It made it difficult to use the magazine release. I went with Walther wood grips eventually.

    This was 10 years ago and they may have changed them. I will be seeing the Hogue guys on Friday and I will go look at the current PPK/s grip.

    If you're ordering Rosen's top-of-the-line holsters, expect top-notch quality, a high price and a significant wait. OTOH, if you're ordering from their Express line of holsters, expect extremely good quality, reasonable price (under $100) and timely delivery.

    I've been extremely happy with my Rosen Express IWB holster. The difference in quality between that and other holsters I've owned is noticeable.

    If and when we get CCW passed here, I'm going to splurge and get a $250 IWB from Rosen with all the fancy trimmings!

    I have a pair of Hogue uncheckered coco bolo stocks on my Walther PPK, and they fit fine and fit my hand better than the flimsy plastic grip panels that came with the gun. They're a tifle thicker.

    Mitch Rosen makes outstanding holsters, and his belts last at least three times longer than men's store belts.

    Regarding Mitch Rosen leather...

    I bought a "Workman" for my SP101 about four years ago. Since then, I've ordered three more holsters, two mag carriers and two belts from him. Another holster is being ordered soon. They're that good. His products are clearly assembled with knowldege of the craft and not simply a assembly line knockoff. Excellant fit and comfortable. He'll also work with you for out-of-the-ordinary requests. Luckily, I'm close enough so that I can go to the shop. I see no reason to buy a cheap holster for a quality handgun. I wouldn't put a Bushnell on a Sako nor would I carry my HK in a Bianchi. His stuff may cost abit more but you get what you pay for and it's well worth the wait.

    Me!

    Seriously, Rosen's ARG brand IWB holster is $135 for the cowhide version. The extra's cost, well, extra. Here's a cowhide version with snakeskin trim:
