A proper grip is a cornerstone to accurately delivering defensive fire from a handgun. In addition to mitigating recoil, thus making the handgun more comfortable and controllable, the correct grip also ensures you’ll hit what you’re aiming at. Grips are a design aspect gunmakers have turned their eyes to in recent years, offering much more aggressive texturing to facilitate a more positive purchase. If you aren’t lucky enough to have a brand-spanking-new carry pistol, there are still ways to get a handle on your handgun. There are tons of aftermarket grip options, from manufacturers such as Hogue, Blackhawk and Pachmayr. Talon Grips (pictured above) offers one of the simplest with its wrap-around peel and stick grips, tailored to a vast spectrum of popular handgun makes and models. Available in aggressive granulated and rubberized variations, the modification only takes minutes to apply and greatly enhances the control of a firearm.
