How many people use the Talon grips on their Glocks for competition shooting?
Pros and cons?
I do. Love them. Only con I can think of is that they're rough on your shirts... wouldn't carry with them on there.
Don't use Talon, but I do use these:
A couple of the guys at the Beckley range was using them and let me try 'em.
I had the problem of the gun working itself loose in my sweaty little hands as I approached 10 rounds.
Solved the problem. I put them on a 19 and a 17 that I use at the range.
Meet me somewhere and you can try mine. (PSS range on the 13th?)
I also have another little trick on mine I will show you. I'm so old I shake like a dog passing razor blades so I need all the help I can get.
I've tried several brands of rubber slip-on grips for Glocks. Most were difficult to install and all became sloppy in a short time.
I don't like the roughness of sandpaper grips so I tried Decal Grips in the rubber version. I found them easy to install. So far (after a few months), there has been no delamination. I like these!
I use regular old skate tape and cut it in the same pattern as the Talon grips I bought at one time. I kept the old grip and when it wore out I used it as a template to cut out the new ones. Works like a charm. The only "con" I can see to using them is sometimes the tape gets old and has to be replaced, thats not really a con but if you cut them out yourself it can be a pain in the a#@.
I have used bicycle inter tubes since the 80's--I even showed houge and Pacmeyer at a FireArm's conference in the mid 90's -you know the rest of the story. With our the High hummity in Orlando I need to keep a good grip on my firearm.
I still use them on all my firearms, the blown ones are free at our Bike office and my favorite bike shop. Of course you can use them on AR's, flashlites, Etc..
I do not like the sand paper type-damages the clothes and gives calluses I do not need. If you like them Good for you-buy them, I still like my Freebe's.
Hunted for cheap tubes this weekend. Looks like a trip to Wal-Mart. I guess the small size is best.
Tuesdays is ammo shipment days at our local WMart.
I installed them about 8 months or so ago and haven't looked back. The only con that I can say is for carry and concealment as they really eat the hell out of your skin if you're not wearing an under shirt.
Talon makes a rubber model too and I use them on all my Glocks
That is what I was looking at. Thought it might help my score too.
I have several different grips on my Glocks. You can try them Sunday.
That might be better than trial and error.
Thanks again Danny
Hey Walmart has been having some super deals on ammo lately
