New grips for my Pocket Rocket

I decided that the Rosewood grips that Kimber puts on the Micro Carry .380 are just to pretty to be hanging around in your pocket.
So, I decided to make some new grips. Keep in mind that I am NOT a wood-worker so, be gentle with your comments

Coulda fooled me...looks great! Nice work. How do you like your micro 380? Trying to decide between 380 or 9mm. Thanks.

I like the Micro Carry .380, especially here in Florida. I have a Sub-compact 9 that is a double stack. I find it a little to thick to pocket carry so, the .380 is perfect. I IWB my 9 in the cooler months. The Micro Carry .380 in a Remora pocket holster almost disappears in most pants pockets.

Oh, and BTW, the little Pocket Rocket shoots surprisingly well for a pistol with a 2.75" barrel.

Nice, unique looking grips. I like the shell casing accent.
