    Just installed this grip. Feels real nice in the hand. Use a scalpel to cut a small notch at the grip safety. Other than that. Real nice. $ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345585429.213029.jpg $ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345585439.002298.jpg $ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345585447.738428.jpg

    Have you shot with it yet? If so, or when you do, could you let us know if it slips any?

    I use a bicycle tire tube cut to size works great. and i can make a couple dozen out of one tube.

    but otherwise just the gun grip is fine for me.

    The wife and my son like the tube on there.

    Nope have not shot it yet.

    Had this gun for a month now and have not been able to get to the range. Ugh. Killing me !! Haha

    After reading several posts about slipping and having a good grip , I wanted to take out all variables.
    Planning on shooting Thursday if I don't get called in. Will give a report.

    The tire tube is a good idea.

    Think my kids would be mad if I took their bicycle tubes?

    Haha. Patience had nothing to do with it. Everyday I thought I could get away I got called in to work. Anywho.

    Took it out this morning. Had a good shoot. Put approx 220 rounds down range with no failures to feed , fire or slide not locking back. Only failure to fire I had was the snap caps I ran drills with. :) I shot low which is not the gun just me not shooting in a long time. Think I had to much of a grip on the gun from reading all the limp wrist posts. However , well within killing zone of the BG.

    The hogue grip did great. Felt very nice in the hand. It did want to slip just slightly down the frame but no twisting at all. Even the sliding down the handle was very very small. I'm just picky.

    Over all I'm happy with the gun and the way it performed. It will now be my EDC.

    Here is a pic of my target. $ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345747105.602418.jpg

    You don't know if you can get those without the finger bump do you?
    BTW you got a Web link for those?

    I just got mine today and it feels good, all I need is a Pearce grip extension and it will feel perfect in my hand.

    Yes.

    Pearce grips will make it fit great. Can't wait to get these in.

    Just fit one today. I trimmed the bottom rather than a GS notch.

    Nice. How is the finger bump ? To low ??

    At first I thought about just trimming the bottom but it seemed low in my hand.

    I was looking at yours compared to mine and they look to be in the same spot I think.

    I like the Jr. because of that bump. I have the same one on my LCP and it made it feel like a new gun. Great grip. Can't wait to try it on the XDs.
