R9 owners have found, myself included, that
when hands are sweaty in particular, the gun
is not that easy to hold and feel secure.
One or two people have had success fitting
small and cut down Hogue HandAlls but also
what is often seen as skate-board tape can
be used. I have this on a Browning Hi Power
and it works well.
I had looked and hoped to find a 1" roll of
3M grip tape, as had been used by others but
instead made do with a roll of ''Duck'' tread
tape. This is 2" wide, not very cheap and
also has a pretty coarse grit embedded - maybe
the 3M is a bit finer but in fact this serves
well for me, no problem. I will be able to
use more of the roll for porch steps so -
not going to waste!

of application may or may not suit others,
having decided to be somewhat ''minimalist''
about it. In front I did not want to extend
onto the ''curl'' up to trigger guard and
to rear, also wanted to only place tape
on the straight section. In practice this
feels just fine - giving better security
for middle finger up front and the palm/heel
of hand at rear benefits just fine from
the area covered.
On the pics below you may notice on the
rear view, also, the dots of ''Bright Sights''
I applied a some time ago. In good light
they do help a bit.
or fresh idea people may have on this
matter of grip tape application etc
