Got some new Talon grips today for my M&P Shield. Already had rubber Talons on my XDm and PPQ, figured I'd try the granulate ones for the shield. Think I made a mistake... The rubbers were great, don't know why I felt the need to try something new. Sure, the grip is even tighter with the granulate.. it's actually fantastic.. but those granulate grips are basically just adhesive high grit sandpaper. I'm afraid to put this thing on my waist and see what it does to my skin/clothing. I think they'd actually be pretty nice for an open carry, but I'm not sure these will work for concealed. Only a 20 dollar mistake at least.
