Right now all of my Glocks are free of any aftermarket grips. I had tried the Hogues and Pachmayrs. They felt good but after long range sessions they shifted around too much.
My 3rd generation Glocks feel fine the way they are. I get a nice firm grip on the weapon. For some reason my 2nd generation 19 seems to have a less aggressive grip pattern. It just doesn't feel as rough. I was considering putting some Talon Grips on the 19. I don't have the cash for a new Glock with the RTF.
So let's hear it from the Talon users. I've seen some mixed reviews on youtube, some love them and some say they are too abrasive. I have heard that you can use some sand paper to sand them down a bit to be more comfortable while carrying.
I carry IWB most of the time while off-duty. I do wear a tank top so the grip won't ever be against my skin.
-Will it start to tear up the shirts or wear on them?
-Do they start to lift after any period of time?
-How are they to shoot with?
I'm just interested in comments on the Talons, not any type of stippling. The 19 was my first Glock that I was issued by the NYPD. I don't want to do anything permanent to the weapon.
