I realize my USPc .45 has very aggressive texture on the front and back straps of the grip, but I was wondering if many of you have placed skateboard tape on your USP grips or P2000 grips and what your experience with it was. Thanks.

For the price of a Talon Grips (not bashing them; I like their products) and other pre-cut grip panels, you can buy pretty much enough skateboard tape for 50 guns (assuming you measure twice, cut once).

I have tried Jessup skateboard tape, and it's the equivalent of Talon Grip "sandpaper" style. Works tremendously.

Haven't found a rubber grip equivalent, though, 'cause I don't find those useful.

I'm not sure how important aesthetics are for you but I've enjoyed the use of stair step tape. It would not work for a P30 or HK45f grip but, USP, P2000, and HK45c grips work all right. It's a little more abrasive than skateboard tape but I have found it to be a good fit for me. A roll of it can be had for next to nothing at Home Depot or Menard's.

i have the rubber decal kit on my USPt 45 HD. weapon . the decal grips are comfortable and have held up good in hot and cold conditions . not quite as tacky as the hogue grip sleeve, but yet not as coarse and gritty as skateboard tape .

the USPc 45 is slightly larger than the models listed on the kit, they will probably work, but i'm not 100 % on that, hope this helps .

This thread made something occur to me. What if someone were to glue a silica sand coating on the grip? Some of the that media is clear when glued and would provide the extra friction......Hmmm.

Thanks for the many different suggestions that hadn't occurred to me. I'll probably experiment with a couple of them. This is the kind of stuff that makes me really appreciate and enjoy this great forum.
