Ivory Grips/Stocks

I don't know much about ivory. I knew there was "pre-ban" ivory, I knew it came from elephants and some related dentin materials were called ivory and that there were various ivory substitutes or fake ivories. I did NOT know all the jargon associated with the trade and I didn't know a lot specifics on legality, cost, etc. Ivory is really a very interesting material and there's lots to learn.

Most shooters are at least modestly interested in the use of ivory as handgun grip or stock material. It is dense, attractive, contrasts well with blued steel, and is associated with elegance and "class".
