I love my sand paper grips but they tear gear up.

Oh yea, make sure you block out your serial numbers.

Nice! I'll have to try some; I've been using the very similar sand style "Decal Grips" for many years:

Thanks. I just deleted that picture.

Why? Posting serial numbers is not as big of a deal as people make it seem. I love it when the same people post their serials with methods that are reversible too.

I don't understand why folks don't post their serial numbers. I'm guilty of it too sometimes though because I figure ya'll must know something I don't. I mean it's not like your SSN or a credit card number. Please explain?

PS. Cool grip ads ;)

Biggest reasons are:
1) Someone is going to take the time to make an exact copy of your firearm and use it in a crime and leave it there to be found.
2) Someone is going to call in a stolen firearm report with your serial number.
3) I don't know, paranoia? Government lists?

For 1 and 2, a simple set of records like a DROS receipt or even a normal receipt would prove innocence. If none of those are available, a simple check of a stores records or system records will indicate make and model for handguns, and proof of sale/transfer for long guns.
For 3, I don't know what to suggest there.

The sandpaper applications are great for competition or real tactical applications. Otherwise, I really like Agrip (http://www.brookstactical.com/).

Stuff feels like felt, but gives an awesome grip on the gun (even when soaking wet), and doesn't tear up your clothes if you concealed carry. The only drawback is that it is expensive ($30 list, but you can find it online for about $20).

I use decal grips on mine and they helped a LOT

I will second the Agrips. They are REALLY comfortable and grippy. Think crushed velvet.

Decal Grip (sandpaper style) is what I run on my competition guns. I used the rubber texture model when I had a Glock 23 for CCW. Very grippy and doesn't hurt your clothing, but it feels wider (and a Glock is already a handful for me).

Gryff knows of what he speaks. Grit tape for competition/range guns, A-grip for a working gun. I've got tons of grit tape on most of my pistols, but my G19 wears A-Grips. They're surprisingly good.

Oh, and OP? For $10 more, you could have bought a whole roll of it from Home Depot. Cut it up yourself, it's pretty easy. If you want exact shapes, use the decals you just bought, or use blue painters tape on your Glock to make stencils. Easy peasy. :)

Agrip will wear off over time, and at 20 bucks...not my cup of tea.

I LOVE decal grip (rubber). It doesn't ruin your hand.


ALSO if you want to use sandpaper, go to a skateboard shop, buy a roll of grip tape for like 5 bucks, and make your own template....a lot cheaper that way. And WAY easy!!!

Another fun Glock project! I'll have to check to see if the grit tape comes in different colors.

Not sure if the rubber was available but I got the sandpaper grips and I am pretty happy with the improvement but I think an finer grit would have been better.

+6 for Agrip, that's how many Glocks I've got it on.

When it seems to be worn smooth, I've found that it can be fluffed back up with a toothbrush. The stuff rules.


I vaguely remember plans for an Agrip toilet seat over on GlockTalk.
