I didn't want to wait on a grip in the mail so I racked my brain for a compromise. For $2.50 you can buy a "What-a-grip" at Wally World. It's a replacement grip for tennis rackets and has a little stickiness to it. I slid it over the grip of my C-9, marked it, removed and cut it to size then slipped it back on. It looks pretty good and provides much more grip. I haven't shot with it on yet but will be in a couple of hours. It will probably slide a little bit but is easily moved and definitely worth the money.
