Whether you are a gun enthusiast or you are a newbie, it is a good idea to know as much about the weapons you will be using. There are many parts to a gun that you want to look at and take into account. You should know about the caliber of a gun and what the pros and cons are. You also want to know what brands are out there and do your research about them to know what you are getting. Another extremely important part about choosing the right gun for you is how it feels when you are holding it and how it feels when you go to fire the weapon. The only way to do that is to hold the gun in your hands and get a feel. One aspect of it is the weight of the weapon as well as the balance when you are holding it. Everyone has a different comfort level and that is why it is important to have as many in your hands as you can. The other part of how the gun feels happens to be the grip. This is the part of the gun that is in your hand and offers some support.
Shooting Range Industries Lists Different Type of Gun Grips
Granulate Talon Pistol Grip: If you have a gun that comes standard with a granulated pistol grip you will know it. The granulate offers a grip that is very secure when in the hand. No matter the condition that you are in the grip will hold up. This includes moisture and cold weather. The granulates can be great when you want to have a rough texture to help when you are holding the gun. Some of the reasons that people don’t want to use this type of grip is it is a bit more aggressive. If you plan on open carry it is a good but a conceal carry it can cause your clothes to grab and stick. The grip can be dulled out over time or you can use a fine sandpaper to reduce some of the grab if you need to.
Rubber Pistol Grip: Another common option that you will find on handguns happens to be a rubber grip. The rubber grip is exactly what you think it is and is made from a rubber material that is then given texture. When the rubber is prepared it is laid in a mold that has some texture so when it sets up it is firm but it also has some texture as well. The rubber is great for someone that is using their weapon as a conceal carry because it is comfortable when under your clothes. The other benefit that you get with a rubber grip is that it is comfortable for someone that has sensitive skin.
Contoured Gun Grip: The other aspect of the grip that you want to take into account is the amount of contour of the grip. The grip will have some contour for the top where you seat your hand as well as where the fingers wrap around. You also want to make sure that you pay attention to the length as well as the width of the grip as well. The contour should feel natural and comfortable.
