    I've had my G22 for about 15 years. when I first got it I wasn't very accurate with it be cause the grip was square no finger groves. I put a hogue slip over on it and it helped tighten my group up and felt much better in my big hand. It had finger groves and a slight palm swell. I still have the same slip on it and it looks like it was just put on it. For the price they are worth checking into.

    Thanks for the post. I actually just purchased some for 8 bucks. I was at a gun shop today and was playing with the guns and one glock had a hogue sleeve and i fell in love. I shoot the g37 and sometime when my hands are moist my grips moves. im hoping this will fix any issues in that category.

    Ive got houge and limbsaver...limbsaver blows IMHO...

    I know some of you like them but they are to soft and move around to much for anything other than the range.

    I had one on my G22. I shot it but never could get a feel for how thick it made the grip. I like it better without the hogue grip on it.

    I have the Houge sleeve on my g34. I will probably put them on all my Glocks except the g20.

    I like the tacky feel of the houge and the indentions for the fingers are more pronounced giving me a more secure grip. The g20 frame is wider than the 9mm and .40 cal frames. The grip would really make it too large.

    I have not handled the g37. If the frame is the same as the g20, it would be for me. Depends on your hand size.

    I have been doing work to my glock. Cleaning and decided to polish my barrel. I am going to get nukinfuts to duracoat mine just as soon as I figure our what I want. Lol. I was trying to take my hogue grip off and it wont slide or move at all. I'm afraid it might rip since it so old when I try to roll it down and shoot some liquid to help remove it. That is why I like it no slip on gun or my hands.

    I had one for a while but I was not a fan of the added width to my grip. It felt great for grip though. I took it off and put on a Talon grip. Only cost about $10 and I loved it. I have since then removed the Talon grip and heat stippled my own grip. It was a little scary at first but it was stupid easy.

    holy crap braz your nutz:D. i couldnt do that to my glock i would be scared of f-ing it up. @sigpi- That good to hear at least the product does what is intended. as far as duracoacting, im in the same process now, once i get a sub compact glock im gona to duracoat it and FDE color to match my OD glock.

    Yeah, Braz is far more brave than I am. Glocks fit my hand perfect but if I put one of them sleeves on it it thickens the grip up enough I cannt get a proper grip on one.

    An easy fix is to go to Walmart and go to the bicycle department. Not the typical place a shooter shops to better his shooting experiences but........ Get a cheap bike inner tube, cut it to the proper size and you now have a thin sticky rubber over grip that does not add a bunch of bulk. I know several shooters that do and they work great.

    @ Boris- ive also read that online might be worth a shot. What model Glock did you try the hogue sleeve on?? The glock i have fits my hands ok but i need something less slippery that is why i am trying the hogue sleeves. It sorta gives me a better grip from what ive tried. Hopefully it works well on my g37.

    I tried it on the G19 my wife stole from me for her own use. Didn't like it and it sits in the box with the holsters that don't feel right.

    I rock my G37 aunatural. Racquet ball grip tape works well too and offers a bit more tack.

    Do you carry conceal your g37? if so what holster do you use and where do you carry it? ive been doing the appendix carry, it seems to be the only place that works for me.

    I carry my G37 year round in NC. 114 down to as cool as it gets in the winter.

    I carry at the 3:30 position in a cheapy Galco suede straight drop IWB holster. Problem with holsters is what works for me wont always work for everyone else. I tried a few more expensive holsters and the $30.00 Galco works best for me.
