I just took my .380 to the range yesterday with new Houge grips. Wow, what a difference. Probably the single best thing that you could do to improve your shooting experience. The stock grip slides when you sweat, so the grips eliminate that.

Before you try putting the grips on ............ Heat them up under hot water for a bit......they will stretch a little more before they rip

Also i love the Houghe grips for my .45

+1...Also, dry it off thoroughly and add a tiny sprinkling of baby powder to the inside of the slip-on; makes it much, much easier to ease that baby on.

A little squirt of the wife's hairspray works well also. It also dries tacky once the grip is in place but does not make it impossible to get off. Also, what is leftover after getting the grip on cleans up easily. My father in law taught me this trick when he was over one day while I was fighting trying to put new grips on my motorcycle.

i picked up a Hogue Handall for my .45 and had no problems getting it on. Didn't even have to use any baby powder or anything, and does it make it feel sooooo much better in the hands.
