When I am not putting bad guys in jail or shooting, I try to make my gear work a little better.
My inspiration for the grip design came after attending a 5 day 1911 training class in June of 2007. While the polymer grips I was running held their own, I was still having a bit of slippage as they day heated up and my hands became sweaty. I thought there should to be a better way, it should not cost $60 - $80 and it should really improve the grip one has on their weapon. After some experimentation, VCD Grips – "Vaya Con Dios," "Go With God" – were born.
These grips are individually textured, one set at a time, by someone (me) who who truely appreciates the need for a grip that allows the shooter maximum control over the weapon under adverse conditions. These grips are not the prettiest. I leave pretty to grip masters like Esmerelda and Hakan. However, the VCD Grips were developed with input from, and have been tested by, active-duty military personnel, FBI SWAT Team members, members of state and local law enforcement, Gunsite/Thunder Ranch/Trident Concepts/ EAG Graduates and long time IPSC/IDPA competitors who all agree the grips work as intended.
