How it all began...
It was Halloween of 2011. I had just started as Facilitator for the local chapter of A Girl and A Gun Women's Shooting League. There was a local Zombie Match and I wanted something fun for my Smith & Wesson M&P. So I took a stock backstrap and attempted to make it orange and glittery. It was pretty, but it didn't last very long before everything started coming off. But several of the ladies went wild over it. So I spent the next two months trying to come up with a process that didn't peel off and didn't get glitter everywhere! Finally...success!! And Brilliant Backstraps was born.
A little over five years later and thousands of backstraps are on ranges all over. We added stippling for those who wanted grip without bling and we offer M&P slide cover plates with a single jewel if you want something subtle. We have also added Glock, Springfield, full size 1911 and some Sigs to our lineup of products. We have partnered with Gun Goddess to offer our products through that store as well.
