I put some of the Powder River extreme grips on my XD and finally got out to shoot it today. Blimey! What a difference. I was shooting steel and my hit rate has gone up substantially. I think that part of my trigger flinch was down to the fact that the pistol would ride up in my hand a little because of the slip. Of course that was worse in the summer when it was warm and my hands perspired. Bottom line, a better grip on your pistol will help accuracy, who would have thought it!? Anyone else find a rougher grip surface helped?
