Welcome, neighbor. I've seen three of us Idiots Out Wandering Around. 8-}
There's a few of us on here.
It still sounds like we should have an Iowa Canik Forum match for bragging rights and forum titles....

Re: Low PF 9mm for us non-reloader competition shooters

The Federal American Eagle 124gr is what is used locally for "calibration". Easily found at walmarts. Right around 127-132 power factor depending on firearm.

Alternatively, if you want to shoot something similar to what you would reload.. Federal Syntech is a competition round with Coated bullets.

Re: Is this worth $700.00

Either the picture resolution is bad or those mag extensions are 3d printed, which would be lower in value than say a set of Taylor freelance alumnium base pads.

If they are printed.... See if he'll share who designed them. ๐Ÿ˜œ I'd print some myself.

Re: PCC or AR-9?

USPSA PCC division or just range fun? Competition - go AR9, Ruger, MPX, Scorpion, dedicated 9mm lowers/firearms. Range fun- check out Endo mag by mean arms, uses 5.56 mags for 9mm. But after buying an upper or parts it might just be cheaper to buy a Ruger. I also believe your an Iowan, so you are we...

Re: Forum jerseys?

I'd be more interested in a "funny" jersey than a "sponsor" jersey. (i.e. Some play on Canik english vs turkish pronunciation) My belief is that no company pays me too shoot... so a discount isn't worth running a "bullets inc" sponsored shirt. If I get a job with a manufacturer and they give me PTO,...

Out of my PCC this same load runs 132-134 PF, which is why...

Re: Favorite Training Target Download Links...

I went a different route. I had a buddy cut out a metal template for USPSA targets with the A zone noted. I just use all those amazon boxes I get delivered, cut them up and use a sharpie to draw my USPSA metric targets on them. It is my way of recycling, plus I think its fun I recycle man shaped car...

TP9SFX was bought without ever touching one, just read reviews from this forum, youtube, also squadded with a Forum member at...

Re: 9mm Carbine

To play cheap and reliable... Ruger PCC. To play cheap and have to fidget to make it work... PSA lowers work fine. To just buy it and be reliable, CZ Scorpion, MPX, or something like JP or Leadstar PCC. Personally I run a old Glock PSA lower and self built upper with different parts. But I wanted to...

Re: Working a Bladetech holster to fit TP9SFx

Nice job. I'm currently using the holster that came with it but on the hunt for a replacement I just lucked out as my XDM was my limited blaster, just had what I had hanging out in the gear bag. I bet there are other models bladetech holsters would fit... I use bladetech as they are cheap on Amazon.

Working a Bladetech holster to fit TP9SFx

After some trial and error.. I was able to get my Canik TP9SFx into a bladetech holster. Orginally the Bladetech fits a XDM 5.25. (CZ-SP01 is a no go) The Canik needed another 1/4" for the trigger to be completely covered, but the front of the frame was hitting the holster. Grabbed a heatgun, and af...

Re: First use in a match - Finally

Keep shooting matches... Don't be shy about asking your squad mates about their gear. Likes/dislikes/ preferences...

I was shy, didn't ask questions, ending up buying pouches and belt setups 2-3 times.

If your are a USPSA member there is a discount on red Hill tactical holsters.

Re: New guy from Iowa.

Welcome to the forum, from the Eastern side of Iowa. I'm not much of a competitor yet, but my SFx makes me look like a much better shooter than I really am. Only mod so far is the Freedomsmith Fat Daddy trigger, which is outstanding. Hoping next year to start competing more. Welcome again. There's ...
