At some-ones suggestion, I applied small strips of no slip stair tread material ( available at any hardware store) to the recessed grip area on the slide of my LCP. The slide is a little difficult to sling shot for my arthritic hands. Not sure yet how it will hold up to use and gun cleaners, but I thought it was worth the try. WOW! , what a difference. I can now sling shot the slide without difficulty, again and again. Some may not like the look, but if sure works. Thought I would pass it on. Could help someone.
