I sanded down the newer texture on my MP45 2.0. It now feels great. I've had it that way for half a year. I'm thinking of doing the same on a new Shield 45 2.0. Have any of you guys did this or had to do it to keep it from tearing up your bearskin when carrying the pistol under a shirt ? I thought about some Talon Grips but that only makes the grip thicker.
