We find the Xtac texturing with Armor Tuff does not provide for as secure a grip on the pistol as does checkering. Sold our X9 for that reason, Just our opinion.

We have both a Colt WC CCO and DW Vigil CCO in 45ACP with checkered front straps and MS housings. they do not shift around in our hand like the Xtac textured X9 (a 9mm, as you know) did. Lightweight 45s need to be secure in the hand and are a bit harder to shoot well but most find they carry them more than they shoot them. Then there are the 9mm lightweights which are a joy to carry and to shoot.

Just our .02 worth.

People need to be periodically reminded that guns are just tools and that their resale value is your children's problem.
