Back in Black

Okay, so my Hoppe's 9 and my fancy wood grips are not playing well together. The finish is getting kinda soft and sticky until it dries again real good. So, I'm gonna have to refinish the grips....I ain't giving up my Hoppe's!

Anyway, I bought some $19.00 grips, which look nice, but at that price I bought 2 styles. One is solid black, smooth and shiny. The other is a peanut pattern similar to Warrior grips, but also in black. The black on stainless is a look I love and I missed it while I was flirting with brown wood grips.

So, I need a vote on which you think looks best. I'm posting 2 crappy iPad pics to expedite the process....I'll have to do two posts cause I still can't post 2 pics at once on this tablet.

Peanut:

Based only on the pics and on looks alone. I vote "SMOOTH".

I had to crop it and resale it and it is right now. Usually use my phone but have to then transfer the pic.

Vote: peanut or smooth. (I've already picked, but am curious what others think. My wife picked one she really liked so I have to go the other way.

Peanut (btw, the system will not accept peanut as a sole response)
