Those are some very nice looking grips!!
Is the rake angle on the DH grips above the same as what comes on the gun or has it been altered to be straighter? Difficult to tell from the pics...the new EVO pics for comparison:

Forgetting how beautiful these grips are (each one, in its own way, is a work of art!), how much of a difference does this make when shooting?  It looks like the custom grip should give you better control over the firearm, such that that your hand and the gun will "become one".  I guess my question is whether most people buy these because of how beautiful they look, or does it also result in better scores?  Does it just make it "easier" to shoot better?

Also, is this more important on the smaller or larger calibers?  .....or is it the same for both?  Articles such as the recent one from Zins suggested how to grip the gun so it's resting against the firm part of the hand, not the soft fleshy part.  With these grips your hand is only going to grip one way, so the hand matches the grip and vice versa.  Is this going to accomplish what Brian was saying was so important?

The order form suggests "Please include several Xerox photocopies of your shooting hand with the machine set on the lightest setting to show detail of the palm.  A white towel placed over the hand will enhance the definition considerably."

I assume this means your four fingers next to each other, and your thumb pointing away towards the top.  I guess this is to be used for marking the wood.

For those of you who already have these - are they "for show", or do you use them all the time when you are shooting?

Mike you might want to start a new thread discussing ergonomic grips so we don't clutter up Dick's thread. Long story short is some people love ergo grips and some despise them and prefer traditional slabs. Some people like finger grooves and some don't. The grip pressure is felt a bit different with ergos versus slabs.. All things aside it's very important that ergo grips fit the hand properly which is why he asks for a photocopy of your hand to take several measurements from. I got a Steyr Evo10 with medium LH grips and loved them, they fit pretty much like a glove out of the box, then i got an older Walther GSP with LH grips and they fit my hand like a 2x4", I fixed it some with dremel work but still nowhere near as comfortable as my Steyr. Again, I'd start a new thread as I'm sure there are a lot of opinions and experiences people will share with you.

Do they have a website? Are they in business? I am planning to buy match grips for 5 - 7 legacy Bullesye guns soon. I am considering Randall Fung and Herriot at present.

Dick Horton took my stock Baikal IZH 46M air pistol and reworked it to my hand. Absolutely perfect. I sent Dick the photocopies and a tracing of my hand. When I received it I did not have to even adjust the adjustable palm rest!!! It was perfect.

The IZH 46 grips are very blocky and bulky as new. Dick made them so nice and comfortable.

Hats off to Dick Horton.

There is no doubt that every one of Dick's grips is a work of art - absolutely stunning. His customer service is also, in my limited experience, second to none. Truly a positive experience.

BUT, ergonomic grips are a complicated business, it is quite literally a "touchee - feelee" subject.

I've spent quite a bit of money and time trying to get to a perfect ergonomic grip on my Euro target guns - still not there yet despite several changes and adjustments - including Rink, Horton and Morini versions. On the other hand (so to speak!) I've read on this forum of many who hit the perfect fit on their first attempt - excellent!

IMHO, Dick's grips are surprisingly reasonable cost, unparalleled appearance and finish, a truly excellent product.  But then we get back to the "touchee - feelee" part. A very difficult thing to perfect.
