I personally am not to big of a fan of stippled guns, especially where the entire grip is completely stippled, but yours looks really nice. I think it actually makes the XDm look nicer, although I know that is not the point of stippling. It is nice to see somebody taking their time and making stippling look really nice.

That does look good....most stippling I see looks horrible. I know it's not for looks but it looks like it would tear your hands up an hour at the range. I bought the rubberized grip tape from powder river precision for mine a lot less permanent.

If you have "girly" hands, you would have a problem. If you have "man" hands, it is great!! The point is that it is permanent, no need to buy anymore grips. Used the stick-on grips before, they won't last, if you shoot enough.

I don't like stippling. I just use my girly hands to grip the gun firmly. My calluses interlock the factory ridges. ;)

I usually don't care for stippling but that looks great! Does it improve the grip a great deal?
Improves the grip a great deal, maintains the appearance of the gun, not bad up against the skin in the holster under your shirt. Again, looks and feels like the grip tape, won't peel off. I do all my guns like that!!:p

Very nice. After watching all your stippling videos, and a few others on YT, I was inspired and decided to try it for myself... on a mag extension. I probably will do a back strap next, then maybe try it out on the gun frame once I've decided on pattern and stuff.
