Re: Looking for a Conceal carry gun. Help!

It's going to strictly be a personal preference. In my case (although I don't own it) the PPQ SC would be my first preference, followed by the Elite SC. I carry OWB because IWB doesn't work for me at all. The double-stack sub-compact grip fits my hands the best, and the PPQ ergonomics works well for...

Re: Brand New TP9SFX - A DOZEN malfunctions out of 100 rounds

Clean it, lube it, and shoot a couple of boxes of NATO 124. My SFx was just like yours when new. A box or two of WWB 124 NATO later, it shoots great. Shoots cheap 115 bulk pack great, with no more failures.

Re: Inter dynamic KG-99

I had a Intratec AB10, bought new just before they went under. Went bang every time. Accuracy, not much. Sold it for twice what I paid. Never looked back. Was weird. I could drop an unfired 9mm bullet through the barrel, and it would fall through without engaging the rifling. Probably explained why ...

Re: Black Friday Cyber Monday hauls

Local Atwood's was advertising Anderson stripped lowers for $39.99 so I tried to snag one of those... "Just sold the last one." Got a rain check though, and they have more on order, so maybe I'll be able to get my hands on one next week. Now, looking for a good resource for a first-time build walkth...

Re: Sub-Elite size comparison

I was looking at the SR9c as a CC piece a while back, but the ergonomics did not work for me. Only handled it once so far, but the SC feels much better in the hand. Loved the size though...

Yeah, the KelTec Sub2k has a model that will accept TP9-series mags. There is a multi-mag option, that lets you swap the catch for different model mags.

Re: Anyone ever heard of Pastalaya?

Never realized it had a name, but I've eaten it plenty of times... I make a lot of rice dishes similar to that... Got creative one time and tried using pasta instead of rice and enjoyed it. I'll usually brown a little bit of bacon for some flavor, and use some Eckridge sausage (I like the spicier fo...

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

Went to a local gun show this afternoon, got to handle the Sub Elite, and really liked what I saw. Was comfortable and fit my hand well. Asking $379, but I'll wait for prices to drop (i.e., until I have more expendable funds) before buying, especially with Christmas and end-of-year expenses right ar...

Re: Sold My Sig Sauer SP2022, now what to buy

Beretta PX4 Storm Compact (not subcompact). Checks all the boxes! Actually, I've never fired a PX4, but always liked the aesthetics, comfortable grip, and the external hammer. I'm also intrigued by the rotary action instead of the tilt barrel. Never have bought one because it wouldn't fill a need, e...

Re: Prefered self defense carry rounds?

Several years ago, I did a lot of experimenting with the wet phone book/water jug media, and got some pretty opinionated thoughts. 1. Short-barrel 380 (LCP) Hornady Critical Defense or anything using their XTP bullet. These performed well in both types of media. As they don't expand as radically as ...

Re: Extra magazines

Best place to buy them would be to purchase a new SFx. That would include everything you need, including the two spare 20 round mags!

I've not looked lately, but I bought my extra mags from GrabaGun. They had decent prices at the time...

Re: Walmart will no longer sell handgun ammo

#-O

For two decades, they've been my go-to for ammo. And now, pointless, leftist political pandering. The only people who even care that Wal-Mart sells ammo are the ones who already shop at that other store, whose logo references a common item used in shooting sports.

Re: TP9 Sub Elite is almost here!

I'm not as enamored as I thought I would be with my new TP9sf Elite. Grip length is fine but the barrel/slide is one inch to long. YMMV ... And that's odd to me. I would be a lot more interested in a Sub-Elite size frame with an Elite-length slide. In my experience, the grip length is the most diff...
