Never claimed to invent anything, this product has been around for a very long time. The xds however is a rather new firearm and I've seen and heard in various places people asking about talon grips and making your own for them so since I purchased an xds and love talon I thought I'd try making my own and happened to find the exact material talon happens to use. You have offered no experience other than a theory you conjured up yourself. The only thing Kansas said was if it lifts which is common especially if they are overlapped. You have spewed garbage on to this thread and continue to do so. You are saying because you are 70 and a little angry that it gives you the right to act CHILDISH and IMMATURE? You have given no facts only theory. Ask any of your 5000 members that own talon grips what their opinion is. Just because you and a couple friends don't like them doesn't mean everyone else has to share your opinion. Also your OPINION doesn't hold merit over anyone else especially in the manner you try to express that opinion as if because of your age you know all better than everyone because you were an engineer 30 years ago. Did I ever deny that you need to replace them? Did I ever say they stay on forever? Maybe the age is affecting your ability to read and understand everything. Why is it that just because you are embarrassing yourself and now frustrated that gives you reason to believe my EDC is in a box or being shown off when I have carried many firearms that have experienced neither scenario for the past 5 years that I have been able to carry legally. You seem to be the only one crying in a thread you clearly shouldn't be on because now everyone had to read this useless smut because you're old and bitter sir.At my gun club ( 5000 members ) all these tricks come up all the time.. ( as if the OP of this tread ) was the first person to invent this " Cheap alternative " ... I would have stopped posting in this thread, but because this " child " Attacked my input and disrespected me.. I felt it important for him to know that I don't handle disrespect well... After 50 years of personal carry over my 70 years old life.. I have some experiences to offer to Men and woman who come to this forum.. not tle children with the cry baby gene.
AS you can see, in this very small thread, another member agreed that the tape does loose its adhesiveness over time.. but then we actually use our guns.. not throw them in a box..to collect dust. or to take them out to show that they own a gun.
