    Those are all custom done by myself

    I've been using Talon rubber grips for a long time and I love them. They seem to "fill the hand" a little bit more to my liking
    I've been aware of Decal Grips for a while, found a one for rather cheap so I thought to give the rubber version a try. It isn't hugely grippy like the sandpaper, but it's good enough. It is a thicker rubber than Talons. I don't think they'll end up peeling a little sooner than Talons just because of their design. But I've used them for a couple months now with it not failing.

    Since its a non-permanent mod and they're not very expensive, they're worth a try at least once.

After a short bit of explication (and expletives) I understood why keeping the grips factory was the way to go. Now wearing certain gloves... acceptable in some cases. Got home from the class and took them off a couple other guns I had them on. A bit of alcohol or goo be gone and they are back to good as new (factory).
    Iím curious as to why he stated to keep them factory?

    I just installed a set of rubberized Talon grips on my HK45CT. It definitely makes a significant difference in the way it feels in the hand.

    The only HK pistol I've felt a need to modify is the HK45c: I used a Hogue handall.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    That's because you've never experienced a gun sporting some Jerkman Custom Grips

    Iíve tried Talon rubber and Handall. I wear glove size L. For HK45C and USPc, I can wrap my hand well all around the grip, so I feel Talon rubber feels better for me. Handall works too, and I believe it helps absorbing some recoil, but it increases the overall grip size which can make holstering an issue. For full size USPs, I chose Decal sand because it gives me more traction to hold the gun securely. I also feel Decal looks like OEM.

    Same here. It's all about a thorough cleaning with the alcohol wipes and a slow careful installation followed by a "curing" with a heat gun on a low heat setting.

    Never have had an issue and it's plenty hot on the range here in Houston. Fired 400 rounds in 50 minutes through my VP9 yesterday in 97 degree weather for example.

    I did have the need to take a set off a Walther that I was selling. I came off in pieces due to the strong adhesion.

    I never trust an instructor who only believes in his own experience, even a SEAL. Exceptions to that are safety issues of course.

    Shooting a pistol well starts with a good grip. I prefer Talon's but respect your preference for factory grips.

    Thanks for posting the question.
    I saw these advertised some time ago and forgot about them. Years ago I was using traction tape intended for stair treads, because I prefer the most aggressive grips I can get.
    I'll start buying Decal Grips designed for the purpose.
    My opinion's as worthy as one from any other doddering old grampa you have never met or heard of.

    How do I buy some VP9 grips? I want some in gray, all large.

    I loved the granulate Talon grips, but they kept coming off. Currently have a grip sleeve on my gun. It has stayed on fine, but the grip isn't as amazing.
