Default Grip Tape

I've been using grip tape on my Glocks for a few months now. It's the sandpaper textured grip tape. So far I love the extra grip they add. Any of you use grip tape? Have you tried the rubberized tape? Which, in your opinion feels better?

I've heard about those. Do they last pretty long? Thanks for the reply.

I have had the rubber grip from talon for over a year now and it looks like I just put it on. I cc daily and shoot the heck out of it weekly. I would highly recommend it. Plus it doesn't tear up your back.

For those on a budget, or in a place you may have difficuty getting specialized grips- back in the day, shooters used a "glock sock". Cut a section of bicycle inner tube about 3 inches long. Stretch it, slide over grip, release. Sort of like a cheap set of Pacs or Hogues.

I'm gonna go ahead and invest in the rubberized tape. I use the sandpaper and don't have a problem with it. I always wear an undershirt so I never have an issue with it being abrasive.

Just go to menards or any hardware store and buy some grip tape sheets for stairs and cut out your own. I did and for 4.00 I have enough to make at least 5 grips.

Plus one on the Talon grips. I have it on my Nano and its a great add on especially for a sub compact or pocket gun.

The rubberized grips are a bit slick/ can be almost as slick as a stock Glock grip when wet. For sure grip with bite, use a sand paper design.
