Re: 2019 Shot Show News.....

Unboxing video of the updated Hi Point: https://youtu.be/z6QNezEUW0k Not really what I was hoping for. A cosmetic facelift , but otherwise still a basic Zamak blow-back pistol, the same as every other Hi Point. A "double stack" magazine that seems to taper into a single stack to fit the original rec...

Re: 2019 Shot Show News.....

Here's the photo Janik posted in the other thread: https://canikfanatikforum.com/download/file.php?id=662 This is exactly what I want in a new Canik model. I don't care about the optic cutout, but I like the size, capacity, and general design. I would definitely like having this to add to my CC rota...

Re: TP9SF or SFX? Non-competitive shooting

Make sure you measure when you get them... I bought some fiber optic inserts off e Bay, ordered the 1mm for the SFx, didn't realize I had been shipped the 1.5 mm until it was too late.

Re: 2019 Shot Show News.....

Just bumping this thread back to the top now that SHOT Show is getting underway... So far, not much that I'm overly interested in. Kinda like that Kel Tec 22 pistol, but kinda expecting that to end up like the PMR, and be expensive and scarce for a while, then just too expensive for a recreational r...

Re: What's Your go-to 22lr Rifle?

I only own a single .22 rifle, it's a Marlin 881, same as below. Purchased at Wal Mart in the very late '90s. I had a X% off coupon and wanted a .22 rifle. I went to the store intending to pick up one of the sub-$100 semi autos sold at the time. Unfortunately (fortunately) it was the day after Chris...

Re: TP9SF or SFX? Non-competitive shooting

It doesn't come with the flush baseplate, I just bought a couple of 18 rd mags to supplement the 20 rd. I'm gonna drop a plug for the Safariland 578 GLS holster here. It's a great fit for the SFx, as well as several other pistols I have. The paddle can be swapped for an included belt slide attachmen...

Re: TP9SF or SFX? Non-competitive shooting

SFx! SFx! SFx!

Depending on the condition of the SFx, I'd go go with that one. I'm assuming it comes with the full accessory package?

Very fun to shoot, carries easily, accurate, etc.

How much is your seller asking for the gun?

Another here, from East Texas... Also loving my SFx! As repeated a lot around here...
Get a couple of the 150 Rd WWB 124 gr. NATO stuff from Wal Mart for the break in.
Cheap, and shoots great in my SFx...

Re: Springfield XDE now in 3.8" and 4.5"

That 4.5" model looks pretty sweet to me. My father-in-law has a XD-E and I find it to be a fairly comfortable gun. Sights were way off from the factory though. As an inexperienced shooter, he was having trouble getting anywhere on target. My brother-in-law and I both shot it, freehand and from a re...

Now I'm considering a custom paint job on one of my cheaper pistols... Looks like you got a good deal on that SFx... Pick up a couple of the c...

Re: New Mossberg pistol

Just had a thought...
If this uses Glock mags, then I'll assume it shares the same Glock grip angle that causes so much division. That angle definitely doesn't work for me so that rules me out as a potential buyer.

Re: New purchase at DACA show in Dallas Saturday

I wasn't aware of the +2 adapter. I did see that Pearce makes a +1, but I opted to buy the simple pinkie extension to keep it as sleek as possible. I see that ETS makes that flush-fit 7-round mag you mentioned though. I may end up picking one of those up for her...

Re: New purchase at DACA show in Dallas Saturday

In this case, it was all about fitting her hand. She had looked at the Taurus Spectrum initially, but didn't like the way the trigger guard fit her hand. I had tried to point her toward the Walther PK380, as I had opportunity to fire one once and was impressed with the design and low recoil. She did...
