    Anybody have any ideas, just bought a 23C and wouldn't mind some extra grip, but without making even thicker to grip. :x:

    I saw the tape stuff, and it looked the thinnest, but I thought I would ask around before giving it any consideration :o

    It works just fine for its job, not really good for carrying if you ask me thought as your clothes will cling to the grip

    Grip tape is what most competitive shooters use. I have it all over my SVI, Glocks, XD's, etc.

    also, since you compete, have you heard of a Tanfoglio Mod TA90? my old man was doing some work for an old lady who's husband passed and she gave it to him. she didn't even know it was there. he said it looks brand new

    looks just like this but all black, he said (i haven't seen it)

    It's like anything else, with repetition you become desensitized to it. I have sweaty mitts and the grip tape helps. Sweaty hands can lead to sloppy gun handling, no room for error when you are moving.

    Tangfolio is considered top notch in the Europeans, along with the Spinx and CZ of course. It's a very solid design and a very common IPSC competition gun. Although I am not a fan of the de-cocker model.

    As a 1911 shooter my first instinct is to flip the safety as I go to push the gun out and I can see myself dropping my hammer into DA on the draw, that would suck.

    and maybe I'll try the grip tape and see how it feels.

    Just toughen up your hands, get a bucket put rice/rock salt in it and squeeze the shit out of it.

    rice works ... we used to do that in highschool when i was on the rowing team ... toughen your hands before the season started ... or the oars will turn your hands to hamburger meat by week 1. that ... and we did it to strengthen our forearms so we had a stronger grip on our cocks while masturbating as a team ... but we mostly did it for the blisters ... mostly.

    you should masturbate with rock salt ... it will toughen your hands right up.

    speaking of masturbation ... a good friend of mine has grip tape on his XD and loves it. it will be the next thing going on my G21SF.
