G17 - need really good grips

So I have sweaty hands. What are good grips that will really get me to lock this G17 in place? Sandpaper like? Short strings of fire I am fine. Long string the 17 starts jumping a little in my hand. I have a good vise grip as far as technique.

I use Decal Grips,the rubberized version and find they give me a great hold on the gun.They don't add bulk/girth like Pachmayer or Hogue's do.

Talongungrips- use them and even give them to friends. They are now about $15, but less when you buy more.

Stippling. Makes the whole grip like a cats tonuge.

General Glocking

If you have big ish sweaty hands and are looking for one time purchase, the Pachmayr Tactical Glove may be an option. Its less than 15 bucks, looks better than the bicycle tube and it has tactical in the name, so it must be good...

I like them on carry guns, though I use skateboard tape type stickons on match guns (Trugrip, Talongrip etc).

+1. I have them on all my Glocks, and if you dont like 'em you can just peel them off. Also check Talon grips. Some guys swear by them.

Skateboard Tape is *awesome*... and it comes in cRaZy Colors if you want.

I picked up a set of the decal grips and used em to colorize my Glocks.

Red for the G34, Green for the G35.... that way I always had the right ammo at the competition too! (LOL)

So there are lots of options out there... including some really aggressive 3M anti-skid floor/step tape.

A mountain bike innertube segment has done quite nicely for me; I use them on my G17, G34, and G21. At the most, a new tube will run you about $5, and more than likely your local bike shop will give you one with a puncture gratis.

Best, Jon

I guess I swear by them. New Glock immediately gets Talon's.
That's why I give them to a few friends. They love them and look at me like, where did you get these?

I have a Talon Grip on my G17 & G21, & it's nice. But I didn't know they became kinda pricey! I also like Limbsaver pro grips. I have these on most of my Glocks!

I used this for years:

General Glocking

(And I've got the worn fabric on many of my cover shirts and jackets to prove it!)

I tried A-Grip and discovered that, while I liked the feel, it didn't stand up well to regular gun cleaning, gun solvents, or gun oil. So I got rid of the several A-Grips I had.

Finally I switched to the Pachmayr, 'Tactical Grip Glove' and have never looked back.

General Glocking

General Glocking

(I've got arthritis in my hands, now; and I'm still shooting pistols as well as I ever have. These grips have something to do with that.)

I did too. Now, everything that will take stippling, gets it. The difference is night and day, and it doesnt wear off.

I still use skateboard tape on things that dont, but Im really starting to think about "hard" stippling.
