...grip bushing question?

I had a new CZ pistol arrive yesterday and went ahead and field stripped and cleaned her. The only surprise was that the grip panel on one side was loose? I screwed the bushings in so they were flush with the inside of the aluminum frame. I kept a finger tip on the inside to keep them flush while I screwed the grip panel on. Things seemed to snug up perfectly.
I was wondering if I should have used blue locktite on the bushings/frame. I know this has been covered but can't recall if it's something commonly done?

If you’re worried about them coming loose again, then blue loctite would work just fine. Some people don’t like the idea of loctiting anything, but I wouldn’t hesitate to do it if it kept coming loose.

I always Loctite my grip bushings, have done so for years. But if you decide to do this, be sure to use Blue Loctite No. 242, as they can be easily removed if/when desired but will keep those grip bushings in place for as long as you want.

Do NOT use "Red" Loctite, as it's the "forever" kind of bonding.

Thanks guys, if things don't hold together at the range Monday I'll be giving the blue locktite a try.
