Front strap checkering issues

After 3 years of coveting, I finally treated myself to a Custom Carry Pro. I love the pistol but noticed a major issue when I started carrying it. I carry in a custom leather OWB scabbard. The aggressive checkering on the grip snags the lining on my suit/sport coats. In addition to the obvious wear and tear on my wardrobe, this causes my jackets to 'hangup' when I stand up from a seated position.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem? I think I will have to refinish the front of the grip to smooth it out.

Thanks for your thoughts. is offline   Reply With Quote

I never had this problem but maybe you can add something to the inside of the jacket like a patch or some other type of material.
