Why Are Our Top Selling Grips Our Top Selling Grips?

We compiled a list of the top selling grips in our line and provide a couple of our thoughts as to whey they are so popular.

Time Tested Sellers

Glock 43– Glock’s offering in 9mm Single stack arena. There’s not much to dislike, it’s reliable, priced right and it’s a Glock! There are a ton of accessories available should you want to trick out this gun. Read more about the Glock 43.

M&P Shield (classic)- The Shield is arguably the most popular CCW in America because it is a trustworthy CCW that is time proven and widely available.  Like the 43 it has an almost endless list of available aftermarket accessories. Read more about the Shield. 

Glock 19– One of most popular all around handguns in the world. It has greater capacity, is concealable,  fun to shoot at the range, and very reliable. The Glock 19 is an industry standard. Read more about the Glock 19.

Glock 42– A shade smaller and a little bit friendlier to shoot than the Glock 43.  Read more about the Glock 42. 

Springfield XD-S– Springfield’s entry into the very competitive single stack  arena. The XD-S comes in 3 great calibers: 9mm, .40, and .45 ACP. Read more about the XD-S.

If you want to keep these guns in your hands when shooting, a TALON Grip will help. Read more about the Mossberg 590 Shockwave.

CZ P10C– A great gun that is a direct competitor to the Glock 19.  A TALON Grip tames the aggressive polymer texture. Read more about the CZ P10C.

Dry Fire Practice With Morgan Timing Systems

Our Friend Ben Morgan with Morgan Timing Systems shares his experiences on dry-fire training.

Dry- firing is one of the most important things a shooter can do to improve their speed as well as their accuracy. Being that I make a dry fire training device that records and displays a shooters time from when the app on the phone beeps to when the shooter breaks their trigger, I get a lot of questions and comments about dry firing.

The most common question or comment is about recoil. “Why waste time dry firing if there is no actual recoil?” The simple answer is, when dry firing you focus on the fundamentals that help you manage recoil including, stance, grip and grip pressure. The second you pull the trigger, it’s too late to try and manage the recoil. If you are trying to manage recoil while pulling the trigger, you are going to tighten your grip and twist the gun left or right depending on which hand you are using (usually it’s the non-dominate hand). This twist results in rounds going to the left or right of your desired POA/POI (point of aim/point of impact). That or the shooter tries to counter act the recoil by pushing forward into the gun. This push results in the gun being forced low and creates an impact lower than the desired POA/POI. By dry firing and evaluating yourself after each shot, you can check your stance, check your grip, and check your grip pressure. With the timer, you can see exactly how long it takes you to apply your fundamentals and break that trigger. Once you are comfortable dry firing at a certain speed, you can go a little faster and see how well your fundamentals hold up.

The other question I get a lot is about accuracy. “How can I tell where the bullet would go when I dry fire?” You can tell where your bullet would go when you are dry firing, you just need to be focused on your sights, primarily your front sight. Many shooters are looking at their sights but are not truly focused on them. A simple drill to help you focus on your front sight is to dry fire with no target in your backdrop. This shows your eyes and brain what front sight focus should look like, since there is no target to distract your vision. Your eyes can’t focus on two thigs at the same time. If you try to focus on your target and your front sight at the same time you will get a blurry target and a blurry front sight. That blurry front sight makes shot placement unpredictable. The more you practice dry firing and get better and better at picking up that front sight, you will not only be able to break that first shot faster, you will see your shot groups tighten up dramatically. Holding yourself to a high standard when it comes to accuracy is important because those shot groups on the range will grow three and four times bigger under extreme stress, when targets are moving or in low light conditions.

Dry firing gives us everything we need to improve our speed and accuracy, without having to go to the range and shoot thousands and thousands of rounds of expensive ammo.

Sig P320 Modules… What size?

Handgun enthusiasts today have more options than ever before when it comes to the size and fit. Users of the Sig Sauer P320 are no exception. The Sig P320 comes in four different sizes (Full Size, Carry, Compact and Sub Compact) and each size has either two or three grip module sizes available. Each grip module has a two or three letter designation on the lower part of the backstrap. Below is a table showing all possible letter combinations for the eleven grip module options. The black box denotes the size module that comes with the firearm from the factory.

This image shows several models and location of the model/size designation on the lower portion of the backstrap.
Here is a zoomed image showing a Compact-Large (left) and Compact-Small (right)
Newer modules have the model and size designated on the right side of the rail assembly

 

We hope this helps shed a little light on which P320 model and size you have.
