I have been using a Hogue Handall on my USP 45f and thought the Handall made a world of difference, until the other day.

I found a new Hogue Handall for a Springfield XD9 when shopping at Brownells.



I had to trim the bottom back bit off with a razor.

I do like the feel much much better than the original.

The grip has bigger palm swells and deep finger grooves.



Looks like Hogue has some other new Handall models as well on their store web site.

May want to try them out if you like Hogue Handalls.

I used one of those for a while years ago. Over time it loosened up and would shift repeatedly under recoil. I cut it off with a knife and got rid of it.

Whether or not they're better these days I don't know.

I also used old Handalls, because they felt good when I was gripping my Expert and P2000. But I soon found out that they actually took of from gun control on fast shooting and allowed gun to move inside hand on recoil. They "static" role just did not cope with "dynamic" of shooting. I got rid of them and never looked back.

I dont use one on my USPc 40 carry gun b/c the soft rubber is "tacky" and wants to stick to your shirt on the draw. I used to have them on all my HK's but took them off and dont really miss them...

I've used a Handall on my carry USP9 since it was new. Never have had any problems with it and find that it makes the pistol much more comfortable to shoot for long periods at the range. Mine hasn't slipped, wiggled, or snagged on my clothing for 4 years of weekly practice and daily carry. I shoot my USP40 and Tactical 45 just fine without a Handall, but find that the stippling does irritate the web of my hand after putting a lot of lead down the pipe. When I practice with those two at the range I wear a shooting glove. If, and I hope it never comes about, I have to use my pistol to protect myself, or my family, the Handall wouldn't make much of a difference. Dumping one magazine, or more realistically 3 to 6 rounds, the web of my hand will be the least of my worries. The Handall makes a range day much more pleasant, but will have little impact in the event of a gun fight. JMHO

I used one for years (a hogue-grip, not our Moderator 1!) and really liked it on my P2000. I change it every year against a "fresh" one though. I would still have it on if some a-hole wouldn´t have bled all over it some weeks ago.


cheers,

I took a Handall Jr. and cut it to fit my P2000SK. I really like the comfort and the way the pistol fits my hands. I have them on my G19 and PM9 (what a difference it made on that little guy!).
