Hogue Handall for Ruger LCP Review

  hogue 1

The Hogue Handall grip is a slip on style grip that enhances grip on the Ruger LCP.  Installation is pretty straight forward and it comes with some instructions, so I will not get into installation.  I found this grip to be very ergonomic.  It fills my hand far better than the tiny stock grip.  Recoil also seems to be tamed a bit.  The LCP is still pretty snappy, but seems to come back on target quicker.  The grip does seem to make the little pistol a bit wider by about  3/8".  This could be a problem for someone that like the slimness of the LCP.  I carry mine in a pocket holster.  When in my front pocket the width does not seem to matter.  When I put it in a smaller rear pocket, it "feels" wider, but no one seems to notice any difference.  Since the grip is tacky like most Hogue products, it could stick in the pocket making for a more difficult draw.  Overall I am glad that I have this on my little LCP.hogue 2

Hogue OverMolded 12” L.O.P. Shotgun Stock and Forend Review

Hogue 12 LOP Full

I purchased the Hogue OverMolded 12” L.O.P. Shotgun Stock and Forend for my Mossberg Maverick 88 because I wanted a better reach to the forend and to be able to shoot in a more squared stance. The factory stock has a length of pull of 14.5 inches, so it did both of these tasks very well. It has the OverMolded texture, which is a very grippy, rubberized texture, which helps you grip the gun very well. It was pretty easy to install with the instructions, but a little odd. The buttpad screws are hidden under the buttpad rubber and you have to lube a screwdriver and shove it through the rubber. The buttpad is way softer and more comfortable than the factory one making the recoil feel a little better. One point of complaint is that the stock may be a little TOO short. When holding the shotgun with your shooting hand thumb wrapped around the stock, the recoil may push the knuckle into your nose, causing discomfort or even a bloody nose. To alleviate this, I have heard suggestions to keep your thumb parallel to the stock on the side. I could recommend this stock for smaller framed people and youths, but because of the issue of the thumb busting your nose, I probably would not recommend it for larger framed folks.
