    Has anyone used both of these grips on the XDS to compare? I currently have the PRP grips. I carried IWB for about 6 hours or so and when I pulled the gun out the grips had slipped down on the front part of the grip. Possibly considering the talons now, unless you guys have been having a similar problem.

    I have used the rubber Talons for 2 months now and love them.

    I have had my Talons on for a few weeks and carried quite a few days with them. I can say they haven't moved a bit. I am not sure of the installation on the PRP but the talons after applying to the gun, you use a blow dryer to heat them up which almost heat shrinks them to the gun. The grip doesn't act like it will move at all.

    I have the PRP since they came out a few months ago. No slippage for me.
    Although it is not my primary carry, I do carry it often.

    PRP for 2 weeks, everyday primary carry, put 150 rounds thru it yesterday, no slippage noted. I did clean the gun grip with alcohol before installing, heated the PRPs with a hairdryer after installation. I really like the feel of the PRPs.

    I have the PRP grip and my xds is my EDC in an IWB Crossbreed Minituck. Been carrying about 10 hours a day for months. No slippage. I have Talons on all my other guns. Both brands require you to clean the grip with alcohol prior to install. They also require heat from a blow drier to finalize the application. When heating it helps to press on the grip to get get it to stick.

    I highly doubt that this has anything to do with the grip being faulty. Sounds like installation error. Once they are properly adhered, these things don't move easily, whether it's PRP, Talon, Springer Precision, etc. Some alcohol and some heat/pressure go a long way.

    I have the rubber texture Talon grips on 2 guns. 1 for over a year and no movement, slippage or discomfort at all. I personally love them and would highly recommend them.
