    Trying out the Pachmayr American Legends with the finger grooves.

    They feel great, but won't know the facts until I go to the range Saturday. How they shoot is more important to me than how they look, that's for sure.

    Interesting.

    I'm not a big fan of rubber grips of a carry gun, but for the range they can be really nice.

    i feel the same about not liking rubber on a carry gun. To me there much like the hogue's for Sigs. They feel great at the range but are completely impractical for carry. Throw a set of VZ's or cocobolo's on it and be done with it.

    I agree.

    That's why they're on my range gun.

    I like the rubber grips. I like wood grips. Rubber and wood doesn't do it for me.

    The only thing I don't like about the rubber grips on a carry gun is the fact that they "cling" to the clothing that is over them.
    Other than that they feel great.
    The Hogues actually fit my hands and give me a very good one handed grip.

    I tend to like the feel of checkering better, but many do shoot better with rubber grips.

    I think it's a matter of hand size and shape to me.

    Not every factory grip feels "natural" to me.

    Having said that, the consensus among accomplished competition shooters is I should practice more with the factory stocks and adapt to them rather than looking for something to give me a more consistent grip.

    Who am I to question them?

    They've been right about everything else so far.
