    Over the years, I've tried various sleeves (Pachmayer etc) and grip tape on my EDC G26 Gen3. Right now I only have tape on the front strap and back strap. Seems to enhance the grip without enlarging it too much (tape on the sides of the grip didn't seem to really help with the grip that much, anyway).

    How does everyone else carry their Gen3's? Naked or covered up?

    If my Talon Grips fall off my 19.3 I probably won't replace them

    Naked for me, as much as I like rough texture, I don't like making my Glocks any thicker.

    I have become disenchanted with Talon grips,rubber,on any generation. On a gen3 I only like rtf2 grip.
    Otherwise its gen4 for me. Gen3 is too slick for my tastes.

    Agreed. Do you have any problems with control with the Gen 3 texture?

    No grip tape, sleeves, or any other modifications to any of my grips.
    For me, they are just fine as they came new.

    Havent yet. I find the front and back strap texture most important for me. Then again I've replaced most of my Gen 3s for Gen 4, more comfortable grip for me with the gen 4

    Rubber Talon grips are the bomb. They work and they also look good. I need something on Gen 3s, the stippling is just terrible. Gen 4's I'm fine with stock. In fact Gen 4s are the only gun I have that do NOT get rubber Talon grips, everything else has them.

    I do not use Talon grips on any of my Glocks. The only one of my EDC's that I have Talons is the FNS 9C, but I'm thinking of removing them.

    I have used skate and rubber gripped material on my Glocks the last 20 years. Just recently I put AGRIP on the remaining (7) Glocks I have and have found improvement. I have yet to fully vet the grip with summer heat and hands soaked with moisture, the accolades though suggest satisfaction.

    QwikGrips for competition and Talon Rubber for carry. I used to run an IDPA stage that had you start with your hands in soapy water to simulate blood, try picking up a stock Glock after doing that. Course we put a towel next to for the 1911 guys.....

    That's by my buddy, D.R. Middlebrooks. Gotta be good stuff. He trained Sgt Horner before he went into the AMU.

    that's interesting.... do all matches have things like that going on?
    I've been considering starting competitive shooting w/ a buddy from work.

    to answer OP, naked... prefer Gen 3.
