I need a better grip on my Sig P320 X-Five, since Sig decided to put smooth surfaces under the web of my hand and my middle finger on the stock grip.  I was thinking of stippling it, but skateboard grip tape seems easier and less permanent and I have plenty of it.  It looks like the best way to get it to stick on a Sig is to wrap it all the way around in strips and overlap the ends.

The gun is being used for both metallic-sight centerfire and as a Service Pistol.

I know the rules say "Pachmayr-style wrap-around grips are not permitted." (4.1.1(g)).  But, does anybody think that or some other rule affects wrap-around strips of grip tape?

What your suggesting is not really possible. Skateboard tape is not flexible enough to wrap around the grips. It also can not be overlapped onto the starting end because nothing will stick to the gritty side. Just cut small strips, squares, circles etc and apply where your hand and grip need traction.

Sure, it will wrap around.  I mean to cut it into fairly thin strips, maybe an inch or less wide, not to wrap a single piece around the whole grip.  I've been using grip tape on Glock grips for many years, so I have a pattern for them that lets me make a one-piece that wraps around the front and sides with cutouts for the finger groove ridges, but I was picturing straight stripes around the grip for the Sig.
