    Normally I get all these I'll ever use out of the musical Xmas cards we end up throwing away after the holiday.

    But now that I have a set of CTC grips on my carry gun I will be buying and replacing them fairly often. I'm sure you guys have a preferred brand you can recommend for longevity so please chime in.

    As a side question just how often do you replace the batteries in a firearm accessory that's not activity used for extended periods?

    I've used Duracell most often and been quite satisfied with the performance. I also use their LR44 in a few calipers. The 2032s are in a pair of red dots used for BE approximately weekly ... on time would be an hour most weeks up to 3 hours for several extended matches per year.

    Rarely have I had one crap out in use - I change them annually at the start of the season.

    Little diff

    Between Duracell and Energizer I've seen little if any difference. Cheaper ones don't last long at all.

    Heed well the words in post #4, more probably die that way than are ever killed in actual use. Don't ask how I know....
