    Hogue Extreme Aluminum Grips for the P229

    In my quest to slim down the grip on my P229 I replaced the stock plastic grips with the new Hogue Extreme aluminum grips. Yes, they're outrageously expensive, but I figured I give them a try. They actually are very slightly slimmer than the stocks and they feel and look great.

    I keep thinking I want a P239 for carry, but it really isn't that much slimmer than the P229 and you give up 5 rounds (I think it is). So I'm going to commit to carrying the P229 and pass on the 239. I'm running out of guns to want to buy!

    So the "extreme" part refers to the price?

    That happened to me a while ago. I'm going the other way. I've sold three guns in the last month or two, I think, plus some accessories.

    Pictures would be nice. I'm thinking of getting two sets, one for my Buckmark (the Clear Brushed) and another set for my Kimber (the partial wood ones) .

    Did they slim the grip enough that it was worth the price? I also want to slim the grip down on my 229 and am considering buying these.

    As promised, here's pics:








    I won't opine as to whether it's enough of a difference to justify the price - probably not - but it depends how close to perfect the P229 fit is beforehand.

    I have a set of the Hogue Extremes for my P226 and I love them. Best grip made for the Sig in my opinion, too bad the price is so high.

    Bribery. Buy them sparkly things they like, like diamond anniversary bands, and get a Steyr Scout in return. Get them new ski boots and you get a new KelTec.

    For every new gun I buy, I visit the COACH outlet near my home and bring a matching accessory to one of my wife's COACH handbags (she has three ). This completely distracts her from any of my gun dealings. Yes, it's a bit expensive but I can settle for one less gun per year to keep her distracted and away from my hobby.

    While I still do get her jewelry, I've slowed down on that. She likes guns, too and also golf stuff. But Mike's concept of "tit for tat" is valid.
