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...

Re: S&W Shield or Sig P365

My experience with my .45ACP Shield was less than overwhelming. Had an issue where the trigger stop would get stuck with a live round chambered and the trigger in the rear position from the recoil. Did this on about every other round, had to ship it back to S&W with only 10 rounds fired through the ...

Re: Safariland 578 GLS for SFL

Also use the 578 GLS, compact size with my SFx. Fit is great, with the muzzle extending about an inch past the end of the holster. Fits my Taurus G2C perfectly as well, with no adjustments needed. I'm very happy with mine; it's a much higher quality product than the bundled SFx holster. Not great fo...

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

:-O
... That last picture! A long-slide sub-compact! I would probably actually use the pistol in this config!

Thanks for the new photos; somehow, this makes me want one even more!

Re: Any one tried one of these Speed loaders

No experience using that particular loader, I'm a big fan of my UpLULA magazine loader though. Works so well I've never even bothered looking at other options... Granted, I bought mine several years ago, when they were much cheaper, IIRC...

Re: My First Canik

I wasn't a fan of the extended mag release... I tried installing the shortest button, still didn't like it, then removed that and just ran it without any of the buttons installed.

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

Well, it looks like the OTHER handgun I was waiting for has finally started hitting the market... I've finally seen the Taurus 692 .357/9mm combo Tracker revolver available for purchase. That's been on my list since it was announced at SHOT show LAST year. And now, to keep this thread on topic: http...

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

I'm assuming it must be assembled in the US then, from imported parts. My G2C is clearly stamped "Made in Brazil".

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

IIRC, the Bersa Thunder 380 gets some bonus points because it's a metal frame. The compact BP9CC is a poly framed 9mm though, and it's still made in Argentina. My G2C, in a similar sized package, is still made in Brazil. PPS is made in Germany... I think if Canik wanted to import this pistol, it cou...

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

Its not clear for U.S. market cause ones made in Turkey can't be imported into the U.S. they have to setup production in the U.S. if they want to sell it here. I don't see why it couldn't be made importable. Taurus, Bersa, and others import compact pistols. Add the Elite-S style safety to meet the ...

Re: Cheapest prices on mags?

Only bought one ProMag, for a Bersa Thunder 380, worked great, as a training aid for failure drills. Ended up with multiple jams per mag-full. OEM mag cycles 100%, never had a failure.
