    hey every one wanted to ask about glock grips. I was looking at the talon granulate and rubber. I just wanna get everyone's input in what they like and use. it does not need to be on this brand ill take all the information I can get. I believe the granulate maybe to tough on my skin and cloths with CC. please tell me what you think.

    I use the rubber talons for the reasons you stated. Sandpaper rubbing on my love handle is not comfortable.

    I've got a hogue on my 19 that I like a lot. It has just a little fatness to it that fits the curve of my palm nicely. I did notice last trip to the range that when my hands got sweaty, the grip was just a little slick. May try something different or some tape to help this issue, I'll see if it bothers me enough to make a change. But as far as fit, I thought the 19 fit my hand perfectly already. The hogue made it fit even my hand anyway.

    Edit to say I do not carry, just use my gun for range and home defense right now.

    With proper cleaning technique and grip, no aftermarket grips are needed- even in sweaty/muddy/bloody conditions. That said, I recommend talon if you're all about some aftermarket grips.

    For aftermarket grip enhancers I use Talon with the roughest texture.

    I prefer to have as much grip as possible even under the worst conditions. I wear a t-shirt under my top cover every day so I do not notice issues with rubbing on skin.

    That being said I do not have any on my Gen 4 GLOCK's because I find the standard grip texture to be more than sufficient. I do have them on all of my Gen 1-3's.

    I put a Hogue Handall grip sleeve on my 3rd Gen G17, and I like it a lot! This is far more than an "inner tube" with its palm swells and pebbled texture.

    I cut my teeth on a new 3rd Gen G21, and the new G17 just felt too skinny... My G17 is my dedicated range pistol.

    Anyway, the G17 with the Hogue grip sleeve is by far the most comfortable gun I own.

    I applied good old fashioned hairspray to the grip frame before installing the Hogue grip sleeve, adjusting it just right. I cleaned up any excess hairspray with alcohol... After sitting a day or two, the grip is firmly in place (but still removable).

    Note: I don't add these sleeves to my carry guns because they tend to stick to clothing, causing shirts and jackets to ride up and down.

    Talon rubber grips on the 23 & 27. Really like them. Hogues on the XD. Thumbs up on both products. If you order From Talon, order a sheet of grip material. Had a couple of smooth knives that got slippery when wet, cut out my own pattern and they make them a lot more secure. Just a thought

    The rubber Talon grips are nice. Provide excellent grip and doesn't add to the girth of the frame.

    I like the look of your gun a lot, with the light, your sights and grip. Looks like it would be a great shooter too.

    You're making a too fat grip even fatter?

    Not sure if you are asking me but the hogue is a little fatter, yes. But it wasn't too fat before in my opinion and isn't now either. The width doesn't bother me, but most of the width is right in the palm of my hand. Makes the gun fit like an absolute glove. I am also 6' 4" and everyone's hands are different, obviously. I also do not carry so width isn't a factor there.

    I love the feel of the handall. But they walk and trap oil underneath- even when hairspray is used when putting the grip on. Nothing will feel better than a hogue handall. For a short period of time.

    I put the Glock rubber decal grips on all my Gen3s. They feel great but I haven't had s chance to shoot them yet. I don't feel my Gen4s need any help

    Pachmayer slip on grips for my G27- nice grip and have never moved since I put them on. Feels great in your hand.

    I have the Talon granulated grips on my G17 and G26, both gen3's. Also, I have the Talon rubber grips on a Ruger SR9c that I like real well. If you go with Talon, I doubt you will be disappointed.
  17. I use the tried and true, bicycle inner tube since 1988. Virtually no added girth, great grip, cheap.

    Needs occasional replacing but one tube goes a LONG way.

    So little girth, you can see the texture of the grip.

    I run the Talon "Black Rubber" grips on my G19 and G26. Just enough grip but fine for CCW.
  19. I use the granulated. once sanded down before I put them on they work great.

    I use the Talon rubber grip on my G19. Will be putting some on my G29 if it ever gets here from my LGS
