The juice got knocked out here for a couple days. Early fall nor'easter. Always pounds the hell out of everything. Winter nor'easter just dumps a bleepload of snow.
So I have some catchin' up to do....
Alfa81: Your walnut grips are fine. The ivory looks good for Sunday best/BBQ purposes, but the wood is what it really wants.
PanteraMike: Black hard rubber can and occasionally does give up if it gets brittle.
The most fragile ones are the MOP. Too bad to have those come apart in your hand, but I am gonna shoot mine anyway. And then I'll put the good wood back on.

AshCrash:Glad to see you on here.
