    The only tupperware I own is my Hi-Point. I wrapped the plastic grip in black sports tape. When my hands begin to sweat, my grip actually improves.

    I used to use Hogue grips for my Glock, but already taking a fat gun and making it fatter only made things more uncomfortable for me to carry. (It was like carrying the barrel of a baseball bat to be honest)

    On a recommendation from a friend I went to Talon Glock Grips. Needless to say, I'll never use anything but Talon from now on.

    That's a good possibility. 16 years in the construction trades made for some pretty calloused hands, so the grip tape doesn't bother me much. However, after a change of employment, my hands are getting the "dishpan hands" syndrome. I may have to change my tape...

    Have used an AGRIP, works very well, super low profile, but it just gets more tacky the sweatier you get. Came off clean too, didn't leave any residue. I actually need to buy a couple more. Also have used a pachmayr sleeve, that was thicker, but also effective

    I loooove my talon grips. i smoothed them down so they weren't so rough, and they look sexy next to my new mepro light sights.
