Re: newb looking for range ammo advice

With regards to purchasing - if you haven't checked the prices to make it worthwhile, ammoseek.com (an ammo pricing search engine/site) is always my first-stop-shop. From there I compare prices and shipping from the various distributers. Warning - STAY AWAY FROM CAROLINAMUNITIONS unless you have fre...

Way to go, Janik! I have to admit, I drool every time I see your signature Camo slide. :)

Re: I keep forgetting to post this

I recently purchased one for me Elite. I really like the feel - no slippage at all, and like you say, Janik, my strong hand seems to conform quite comfortably while gripping the gun. I also do a crapload of holster draw practice, and there doesn't seem to be any ill effect on the grip. I mentioned i...

Re: Which TP9 Would Be the Best All-Around Choice.

Carry, defense - Elite (or Elite-S if interested in the extra safety of the swivel trigger safety), hands down a winner of a gun! I can only echo the others comments: Fits like a glove, great shooter, all the right options - especially the full-ambi options for us lefties. I feel guilty when I go to...

Re: Just picked up my TP9DA

I don't care what kind of gun you have, you have the best forum name in town!! B-(
Kidding aside, you will love the DA - fantastic shooter with great ergo's.
Throw a couple of hundred Nato rounds through first to warm her up, maybe.

Enjoy!

Re: Retention vs. the rest?

I appreciate your responses, you guys are great for taking the time to do so. As I read through much of the above, it's more on the personal preference side, and I agree, my two Kydex holsters have my guns fitting snug enough for them to be "secure", and I can draw them without strain. Interestingly...

Retention vs. the rest?

Hello, I own two holsters, neither of them retention, where your finger pushes the release tab on the draw. I watched a video by the great Mas Ayoob, and he touted the importance of retention holsters for the obvious reasons - not wanting the bad guy to grab your gun, or it getting snagged up during...

Re: Another Newbie!

Hi! I have both the Elite and the DA, and I would highly recommend the DA either for a great range gun, or for the more serious home defense and/or carry purpose. You will be amazed with the reset on the DA when in SA mode! It's another great shooter, and the decocker makes it even more attractive i...

Re: Need opinions

I'd vote for the Elite, but I am biased, as I have one and think it is an incredible shooter. I like the Elite's sights (out of the box) better. I like the universal rail. And, I like the angular cut on the slide, truly believing that I do get a much quicker sight picture because of it. The Elite, n...

Re: Memorial Day 25% off Coupon

Mike, received the Elite grip today, put it on, and I really like the feel! It gives me a subtle, but wider grip, which feels perfect in my hand. I went through about 50 holster draws and re-holster repetitions this evening with no issues (Clinger Ultra Conceal V2/OWB), and I am already used to it, ...

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

The Beretta M9 22lr Hey all, I'm late to this dance, but wanted to slap a picture of my personal favorite 22LR. I can honestly say that it's the only 22 I've ever shot, so it's more of a sentimental gun for me. My wife's father introduced us to shooting with his. We had never shot a gun before, and ...

Re: Double Action Range Day - V2 and DA

Nice job, Janik!
I have to say, I am diggin' the custom slide - very nice.
Also, I believe I'll jump on Tejas's holiday discount and get some grips for my Elite. I've been curious, but your post pushed me forward.

Enjoy your holiday! :smile: **== (oh ya, moving.... :-( )

Hi Mike, I assume this is a misprint, yes? "Designed for the Canik ELITE series handgun. Our colored Leatherette grips were made to fit all Canik series EXCEPT the Elite..." I saw this in two different spots on your site. That said, do you have pictures of how the grip looks on the Elite? Thanks! Ne...

Mike, you work with leather - what would you (and anyone else) endorse as a good leather treatment to keep a carry belt in healthy order?

Thanks very much!

Re: Taurus Spectrum

If .380 is preferred, have you ever handled or shot the Springfield 911? I was very close to buying it for my wife, but she wanted a larger gun, and opted for the Grand Power CP380. That said, the Springfield gets pretty good mention from people I've talked to, and from some of the more reputable re...

Re: TP9SF Elite First Range Trip!

The U Notch was weird for me when I first got the gun, but I grew to love it, and seem to shoot most accurately with it. I get sighted quicker and tighter, and keep a better hold on the follow-up shots. I'll also order the U Notch when I get my Night Fision Tritium replacement sights for the Elite, ...
