Okay...I have a glock 23 that i plan on using for production in USPSA. I was looking through the rule book and it says some things about grips but it can get confusing. So my question is, is it approved to add a fingertip extension to the magazine just to add that extra grip? can I add something even longer than that?

Thank you in advance for any information given.

Go to the match with what you've got.
Explain that you are new and the you are willing to learn.
They can help you out. As you learn, you will want to change things and will change things.

Ask the other Glock owner's their recommendations.

(Hint: There must be a reason they use full sized handguns in USPSA)

Good question. The new rule book removed the restrictions on magazine
basepads, but it's really more of a grip thing--and that's pretty restrictive.
It does have to fit the box with magazine inserted, but that should be no problem.

I'm a USPSA CRO, and I don't know the answer. I can find out--but go
ahead and shoot. No one at a local match should give you any trouble.
Worst case you shoot L10 or Limited---and that's not all that bad a thing,
at least there your 40 will score major, and in Limited you can load the mags
all the way up.

Ya and if I do end up having to shoot limited, I can just shoot the match and then after that day take the base pads off so I will be back in production. But ya for production, I want them so they are a little easier to grab out of the mag pouches and to give my pinky something to rest on.

OK, I asked the NROI if the finger rest basepads would be legal in
USPSA production division. The reply:

"Appendix D4 item 22.2 states any addition or removal of material which changes the factory profile is not allowed, in this case, the magazine is the material and as you indicate, it effects the grip and changes the profile so would not be allowed."

Okay thanks. Also, I have been watching videos on USPSA production matches and all of the competitors have their mag pounches completely vertical. Is that because it is required to be vertical like that or can they be slanted like what you see in the open division?

No requirement that they be vertical, as long as they are completely
behind the point of the hip. Drop your weak hand from a firing grip to waist level, they sweep it naturally around your waist. In the front, a magazine
in a slanted holder falls naturally into the hand. The further around the side
you go, the closer to vertical the magazine has to be to naturally grasp it.
If you get W-A-Y around the back, slanted works better.
