How do you keep your Hogue grip in place?
Thought about using super glue but not sure if I want to go permanent.
What about double sided tape, either Scotch or the foam type.

I just cut and fit mine and was thinking that the recoil is going to make it move, for sure if I don't afix it somehow.

Todays range report, shot 15 rounds yesterday and the rest of the 100 today. Rem UMC and Fiocchi.
Had one FTE towards the 50 mark and about 1 every other mag after that.
Figured it needed a cleaning after the first 50 so I'm not to worried about the FTF's at this point, so I came inside and cleaned her good, lubed it up and re-assembled. Will try it out again tomorrow.

I like having a range in my back yard. ;)

Some have used a drop or 2 or superglue,  It's not permenent.  Others have used anything and everything you can think of including stuffing the back of the grip with strips of mousepad.  On my P3AT/32NAA, I have gone to a better fitting grip (Uncle Mike's small auto).  It's also a bit thinner, textured, and has no finger swells.





My P32 sports this:

That's me  :)    I cut some strips and inserted them vertically along the back of the grip under the Handall, Jr. .  It not only helps hold the Handall in place, it also adds to the horizonal length of the grip.  This has the effect of making trigger pull feel a bit shorter.

I put a band of bicycle innertube on my P3AT's grip first, then put the Handall over top of that.

The innertube is a tight fit on the grip and the rubber on rubber contact holds the Handall in place quite well.

How in the world can you get a molded grip on the gun with 3M tape under it?
That's some way serious sticky stuff.

It's hard enough to put one on a gun with nothing holding it from going on!

I use just a couple of quick sprays from my wife's hair spray bottle. The grip slides on very easy immediately after spraying. Let it sit for a few minutes and it holds amazingly well.

NOTE: While cleaning keep any solvents, de-greasers, etc. from the grip area as they will dissolve the hardened hair spray.

Hair spray works very well. Also contact adhesive would work. The contact adhesive would probably be permanent and messy.
I have a Houge Handall Jr. on my P3AT and it fits very tight. It was almost impossible to install. It was a three handed operation to slide it on the grip.

By tube grip, I take it you mean inner tube?
I did that but it moves a bit, probably because I haven't got my grip extension yet. I think I'll try the hair spray trick. I do like the price of a tube grip ;D. the bicycle shop gets rid of them all the time.

Personally, I have never liked the Hogue Handall Jr grip. I don't like the palm swell; it's bulky and uncomfortable in my hand. On the other hand, the small Pachmayr slip-on grip, especially if installed upside-down, seems like it was cutom-made for the P3AT. It also stays in place without glue or hairspray. No palm swell and a better conceal profile. JMHO. I must say, though, that tube grip of yours, Packer, is pretty sweet looking.

Thanks, Dave! Even if you buy the tube new, from WM, $4 will get you enough tube for about 20 grips. I have had this grip on all of my P3ATs and both P11s--even on the PF-11 for a while.

On my other two P3ATs and one P-11 though, I have swiched to THESE grips:



They are VERY comfortable.

Packer.
