Brooks Tactical AGrips and Polymer Framed Pistols

So, today's blog is about a particular item that I have recently started to carry on my website!  About 16 years ago I purchased my first polymer framed pistol.  It was a Glock Model 31 chambered in .357 Sig. Now for those of you who don't know much about a .357 Sig I will quickly explain it to you. Basically the .357 Sig round was developed by taking the .40 S&W Round and cutting it down the actual round to the shape size and dimension that currently exists as the .357 Sig.  This gives you a greatly increased muzzle velocity and deeper penetration for this particular round.  So all and all this is a pretty good round for all types of targets.  The best thing about this round is that the muzzle velocity is so good that even at 50 feet this round can penetrate the average engine block and stop the engine from working.  Now back to the whole reason as to why I am writing this blog.  So, about 16 years ago I bought my first Glock Chambered in .357 Sig and really liked shooting it.  The problem was that after a prolonged time at the firing range my hands would start to sweat and I would lose a lot of positive grip on the weapon making it more difficult to hit my targets accurately.   So, what I did was go online and start looking for something that would help me to increase my positive grip on this weapon with either sweaty or wet hands.  What I came across was the Brooks Tactical AGrip. The Brooks Tactical AGrip is a revolutionary material that when applied to polymer framed weapons actually increases your positive grip even when your hands start to perspire or get wet.  These Pistol Grips are made out of a space age material that actually increase your positive grip when your hands are wet or sweaty or even if you have oil on them.  They are also pre-cut wrap around sleeves that are easy to apply and easy to remove if you ever want to and they don't leave any sticky residue behind on the weapon.  Mr. Brooks has really done a fantastic job of inventing a product that not only works but will also leave no traces on your weapon if and when you ever decide you don't like it.  Personally for me that has never happened.  I have not once ever removed any AGrips off of any of my weapons because I like them that much and because they work so well.  I would like to show you an illustration of one so you can see exactly what I am talking about:

This is my Glock 31 that I put the Brooks Tactical AGrip on so many years ago.  It still looks as great as they day that I put it on and it still works as well as they day I put it on over 16 years ago.  I have shot this weapon more times than I can count with both the .357 Sig Round running through it as well as the S&W .40 round.  This weapon was designed so that you could shoot both types of rounds through it with just the addition of a drop-in barrel.  I didn't have to change springs, magazines or anything else.  Just put a drop-in .40 S&W barrel in the gun and start shooting.  The only draw back is that you lose one round of ammunition per magazine due to the increased size of the .40 S&W round.  All and all this is by far my most favorite weapon to shoot.  I have Brooks Tactical AGrips on all of my Glocks and Love everyone of them.  I also sale them on my website at  I hope you will come see us and check out our great selection of pistol grips for all of the greatest guns out there.  We offer many styles, colors and materials to choose from.
