1. theres no point meshsmoothing that handle, just model it with enought segments to look smooth, chamfer the edges with multiple segments/edges too.

2.

it's basic modelling techniques, just do a few basic modelling tutorials and you should be able to model that cylinder. Look up edit poly, it has a chamfer command. learn to use it.

For the grip texture on the handle look up bump mapping

google is your friend!

He means use the chamfer on the ends of grip to round them off....not make those grip details....for that use bump mapping.



ahhh too slow....I'm getting old

You should have MS paint right?...or use Gimp which is free.....just make a greyscale(grAYscale?) image of what you need the bumps to look like.....easy!

You might even find something on a texture site somewhere.




p.s.
Moonraker movie on TV in background (nothing else on) and the hot chick name on there is Dr. GoodHead......keeps cracking me up every time they call her name.

any pixel based drawing program will do but read up on how bump maps work so you know what your texture map should look like to get the desired effect. There's no shortcuts, you have to be able to create your own texturemaps. As for photoshop I don't think there is one serious 3dsmax user who doesn't use photoshop as well. They complete eachother, photoshop is the foundation for your 3d work.
