Default Packmayr grips. Love or Hate?

So... My new M-17-3 came with an extra hand grip. A Packmayr. I like it... but "hear" that some people detest them. (as in - don't ever put one on your gun - I think that was the line)

Do you like the Packmayr grips or not? Can you explain why or why not. This girl has got to know!! Did I just put a trailer trash grip on my beauty or is she going to be ok? lol!

I depends on the weapon and application/use of the weapon.
I like both the Pachmeyers and the Houge where applicable.

Why do you care what someone else thinks? The manufacturer must have thought the Pachmayr was a suitable grip for the gun. The manufacturer hires engineers and armorers to make such decisions. Who knows more about weapons engineers and armorers or keyboard commandos?

Depends on how much the engineers and armorers actually shoot the guns.

As to rubber grips, I have no use for them.

I have at times shot guns having them mounted, and had the web of my hand abraded raw. The rubber just got that little fold of skin in between thumb and forefinger and rolled it raw.

And how often I've tried to get off a quick shot and didn't because I could not shift the gun slightly to get a better grip.

And, I don't like the soft feel nor the atrocious looks.

Other than that, rubber grips are O.K.

I've only tried one which was for my Keltec P3AT. To that I would call it alright. Can't comment on any of the others. I would assume it all depends on the gun.

For looks they can turn some off. For functionality, they are great! (IMHO) The Pachmeyers were/are made in several renditions; the original Jordans (no finger grooves), the Grippers (with finger groves and covered back strap) and the Professionals (finger grooves and open back strap).

I prefer the Grippers because of my large hands. Smaller hands usually like the professionals

The benefit of rubber grips is unlike wood they don't slip or slide when covered in blood or sweat or water. Downside is the thing that makes them stick also sticks them to clothing making ccw draws iffy at best under stress.

I don't use rubber grips for ccw guns or guns hidden or covered by clothing but they are fantastic for open carry.

You won't see sticky tape or rough stipling on my concealed guns. I like hard plastic or rough checkered wood for ccw purposes.

I love the Colt 1911 weighted Pachmyer mono grip. I "hate" the "target" Pachmyers on Colt revolvers because they are awkwardly shaped, and they kill the classic looks. If I ever need to pull rubber on mine... Hogue please.
