So what is your feeling on front strap treatments. And I do mean feeling, on the hands as well as grip. Just sent my Springfield Champion back for some warranty work and am having it sent to the custome shop for a little work while there. Can add any of these options if I want while its there. Is there any benefit at all to leaving it smooth, and would serration be a better bet and a little less abrasive on the hands than checkering after a long range session. Although my hands are VERY caloused up. I've had no problems shooting in so far with nothing on the front strap. Thanks.
