    I like the black rubber, and the stainless screws....I also upgrade the guide rod and spring lbs., and change the mag release to an inox one, and I change it to right hand release........I also paint the front sight dot green, and the rear sight dots white, for better aquisition.

    Your wife must have some good-sized hands.

    And I mean that in a nice way.

    We went to buy holsters for our guns at a local gun shop and my wife spied one of these and said she just had to have one.. so we got two...these things go BOOM! Cheaper to shoot then our 9mm's...If you don't have one I would suggest you get one.. cheap..

    If your wife doesn't like it you should just sell it...to me, cause I can take it off your hands.

    No kidding I went to the local gun store called Turners in Orange County, CA yesterday. The display cases were virtually empty.
