Well, since my EDC is a Glock............plastic! ;)



On my revolvers or other semi-auto (other than Glock), I might carry......Hogue grips.

I guess it depends on the gun for me. My EDC gun is an M&P pro40, my wrists, eyes, and brain aren’t limp enough for the glock design. Put a hogue slip-on grip on the M&P. Cheap, effective, but you’ll exercise every muscle in your hands getting it on. Revolvers look gay With rubber grips, especially single actions. Seriously considering a Colt SAA 45LC with birds head grip for EDC. Deadly caliber, can shoot faster than auto, way more dependable than auto, and more accurate.

Wooden, all the way. I can only admit putting Pachmayr's Decelerator on my 629-4 Mountain Gun due to the fact that it's a light 44 mag and I've used really hot 250 to 270 grain loads for bear hunting in the past. But for the most part I find the look of Pachmayr grips detestable. Ugly as sin.

For Hunting, Carry and Competition style shooting - Jerry Miculik wooden grips are my go-to favorite grips on all my N, L& K frame S&Ws. Checkered for mags, smooth for the rest. Unless they come with the original S&W wooden combat logo grips - I'll keep them on.

See my S&W M657 no dash with the JM grips.
See my S&W K-frame siblings Model 17 & Model 16 with the S&W wooden combats.

Both have their advantages. But I lean towards Pachmyer's for hunting since they are easier to grip with wet or sweaty hands. For target shooting wood works fine.

629s, 648, Python, HP and 1911......all Hogues.
Prefer slabs on autos.

Did run Pachmayr compacts on a Smith 60 and Grippers on TC Contenders.
