    What are these Grip things?

    I've seen several pictures lately of what looks like a wrap around a grip of a pistol with finger grooves. It appears to be rubber and just fits around the original grip to provide a thicker and more comfortable(for some) grip. What are these and where can I find them on the internet?

    Thanks.

    Hogue grips I have them on my fullsize H&K, but I feel they hang up a little on my carry gun, so none on it!

    not to be picky but that's a kel-tec in the picture...(Sorry it's that type A thing) I had a buddy who put one on is H&K USP because he has monster paws... it made the grip too big for me to get my finger on the triger comfortably but he loved it. I can see where it would be a great asset on a small/pocket auto. My only concern would be that it would cling to clothing/pockets.

    I believe there have been two reports of LEOs losing control of their weapons because of the "impermanence" of the slip-a-grips. I had one on a Gen 2 G19, and ditched it for that reason- holding the grip firmly, it was possible for someone grabbing the barrel to rotate the gun 90* either way, without breaking my locked wrist.

    If it really improves the feel for you, I'd degrease the grip and inside of the sleeve, and squirt a couple dabs of Goop under there. Personally, I won't use them anymore.

    I have a Hogue Grip on my P3AT just as shown in the picture. It does make the grip just a little bigger and more comfortable, but also helps to reduce the perceived recoil. Not that the recoil is all that bad, but the grip checkering on those little things are sharp.

    I had on on my HK USP. It got old, worn and slipped. Since then I prefer the sharp checkering the factory provided much better.

    I have one as well as a light on my nightstand G23. It does add to the grip width as listed above but for me it made for faster follow-up shots. I did try it with CC but the grip would grab on clothes and because of that I will not have one on any gun I carry. My G27 needed a bit of help in the grip so I added the sand paper grips and love those as well. I am one that likes a bit of sharp grip.

    I have a Pachmeyer #2 on my XD45 that I had on my xd40 and I love it. In fact that is one of the first things people compliment when they pick up my pistol is how nice the grip feels.

    I have hogue slip-on grips on a couple of my pistols. I especially like the extra grip and girth it provides on my USP.
