    Non-Sticky Alternative to Hogue Wrap-Around Grips for P239?

    I really love the feel of Hogue rubber wrap-around grips on many of my guns. I especially like them on my P239 carry gun. Without them, I find the P239 grips to be a bit slippery and small (I like a grip that fills my hand). Unfortunately, I've found rubber to be a bad choice for a carry gun because it tends to be grabby on clothing. Can anyone recommend a replacement grip for my P239 that has a similar shape, including finger grooves, but is made out of a less tacky material?

    A-grips, but they don't have finger grooves.

    I've used both Hogues and Pachmayr. As RockingGlock32 stated, go with Pachmayr grips as they are not tacky and easier to remove for cleaning than Hogues, IMHO.

    Hogues are good because they don't generally have a seam as they are mono-grips. Pachmayr grips are bascially rubberized grips with two halves. When fitted together, there may be an edge to a seam, however, the edge can be sanded smooth to be more comfortable for the hand.

    these one-piece rubber Hogues can be a bit of a hassle to install, however. getting the left panel under the de-cocking lever is a little tricky. i'm pretty sure the wood Hogues are two-piece.

The Hogue wrap-around grip tends to round out that front profile, the finger grooves are a bonus. I think if there was a way to make the front strap to back strap distance larger to fill my hand more, it would feel better and not decrease concealability by making it thicker. I'm not big on the slip-on style grips because they have a tendency to move around.
