Contrary to what some people say, the new grip surface didn't tear my skin under recoil. This may be an issue with the hotter 40 caliber rounder, but with the 9mm I had no issues, even when running +p defensive ammo.
I carried this gun concealed in an IWB holster all day long. It didn't rip up my love handles at all, another complaint I've heard people talk about. Now as far as ripping up shirts, I'd have to wear the same shirt daily to see if the new stippling affects the fabric. Time will tell I suppose.
In closing, I'm very pleased with the increased traction of the RTF2 model 17. I'll probably add the new 4th generation 17 to my collection at some point. That, or hold out for the 4th gen Glock 19.
I put 50 rounds through the gun today, and my very first shot was a bulls eye at 21 ft. Guess it's pretty accurate when the fat guy behind the trigger does his part. :)
