    My buttcap was really loose, so I pulled off the grip and took it off. To put it back on, should I staple it (with a staple gun), or use a strong glue, like polyurethane construction adhesive.

    Thanks,
    moos.

    Staples will hold better, IMO. All of the ones I've seen come stapled from the factory. If it's a graphite handle, a normal homeowner's type staple gun may not be powerful enough to drive the staple into the handle. I use a narrow crown electric stapler I bought from Harbor Frieght. If it's a foam handle any good stapler should work.
