    I got my first chance to hold a RTF G22 yesterday. I think the RTF is a bit much for me. I do not know how my hands would holdup if I had to shoot 500 to 600 rounds through it in a day. Most of the handgun classes that I have taken we shot 1,000 to 1,200 rounds in two days. I admit that I work in an office and my hands are not tough-but the RTF was a bit rough I thought.

    It was made to be a combat side arm. The roughness of the grip is for wet hands and more "traction" than the relatively slippery grip that Glocks normally have.
    I have found that the edges of the trigger guard and the ribbed triggers are worse than the rough grip on my hands.
    If you grip the gun tightly it shouldn't be an issue.

    I'm used to sandpaper finish Decal Grip so the RTF2 finish is no big deal to me. First time out with my RTF@ G19 I shot 500 rounds with no discomfort, and I have sensitive drummer's hands.

    Shooting 500 rounds RTF or not is no problem for my hands comfortwise, but I sure get mentally fatigued, and my already poor shooting suffers even more :embarassed:

    I have wondered if the roughness of the grip might be an issue on my backside when worn inside the waist band all day up against the skin. Seems as though it might get a bit uncomfortable.

    I like it. haven't had any problems shooting 100-200 rounds in a session. The grip it affords, especially on sweaty hands, is a big benefit. I hear it loses it's sharpness with use but still provides a great grip.

    All the Best,

    I think its the best polymer texture available on the market. I have done plenty of hard use classes with it and its never been an issue.

    I love the purchase it has. I put a little fine, wet sandpapering to the inner stock so it rode better against my skin.

    I think it's the best thing Glock ever made.

    Then some dumb***** came out with the "Gen4" and ruined it for everyone else.

    I have 2 rtf's (11 Glocks total). The RTFs are the best grip ever. If they had made all their grips like this, people wouldn't be using sandpaper, talon grips, hogue grips, etc. I find myself shooting the RTFs more than any of my other guns because I just LIKE them. They would only be rough on your hands if you were letting them slip around in your grip while shooting. However, they just don't slip around, so no problem.

    To the OP.

    What is the significance of the 359 in your username?

    It's my favorite truck...

    It is the WWII K98k production code for J P Sauer und Sohn. It is from the first Mauser I had as a kid. Eagle over 359.

    I like the RTF best. I can get a great grip on the G22RTF I have, much better for me than any other.

    I personally dislike the RTF (including the Gen4 RTF). I also have a white collar job and my hands are not tough and calloused. After an extended shooting session it is downright painful. At this point, the texture is really the only thing I'm not liking about my Gen4.

    RTF2 is the only way to go.

    One of my favorite things about my G21SF is the RTF2.
