Stippling — adding texture to a firearm in order to increase it “gripability” — is becoming more and more popular with tactical shooters, competition shooters, defensive carriers and anyone else who doesn’t want to drop their pistol. Chris Brooks, owner of Christopher’s Custom Arms, is a stippling artist — a master of fine tuning a mass-produced handgun inside and out. He answered our questions and demonstrated his fine work. Enjoy!
