Guns vs. Sex Lube? Testing Grips and Slides with "Personal" Lubricant [April Fool's Special]

James Reeves
by James Reeves

In this very special April Fool’s edition of TFBTV, James Reeves takes a light look at a heavy myth: Is it true that forward slide serrations are important for operating a handgun while your hands are slippery? What about the grip? Is a slippery grip too difficult to handle for mag changes, shooting, and manipulating a pistol? How important are slide serrations and grip? Which is more important? James completely lubes up several pistols to test this myth out: If your hands are covered in Astroglide and you can still work a pistol, is stippling still critical? All these questions and more answered today with a side of jorts and Michelob Ultra.

    If you're worried about losing control, try using a rubber - grip that is.

    Of all the current pistols on the market, the Beretta APX has the most grippy slide of them all and should have been a part of this battery of tests.
