Re: New member and new owner from Idaho

Love my Elite, even with no mods to it. Fits like a glove, and makes me look like I know what I'm doing! :-D I had to shoot a couple hundred rounds of 124gr NATO in mine to keep the slide from failing to lock back after the last round, that is with the original spring/guide rod. Century sent me a li...

The whole Turkey thing is just so appropriate. Great bit of fun and humor there.

Re: Tejas Products - Grips

Nice report. I am seriously thinking about getting the grips for my Elite. My concern is, my Elite will eventually become my carry gun, and wondered if anyone has taken the time to "torture test" them with various holsters? How do they stand up with regards to folding, and staying put firmly on the ...

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

Nice to see the great review. My go-to guy at my home range walked me back to the display case to check it out. Real nice trigger, and it felt very comfortable in my hands. They had it marked for $700 and change. He couldn't believe that Canik was putting out a poly gun that high-priced, not being a...

Re: Springfield XDE now in 3.8" and 4.5"

I too held the 3.3, and liked the way it felt in my shooting hand, though I'm a lefty. If they made an ambi slide-lock, the 3.3, or even the 3.8 would be a serious consideration. The Canik Da is now the only one of my 3 9mm's that isn't ambi, and I vowed to not ever purchase another unless it was. L...

Re: New Team Canik Fanatik Decal

Very nice! Was hoping for some decals related to anything Canik. Couldn't find much, if anything on the internet, so very happy to see this. Need something to throw on the rear window of my truck. Are there plans for other gun types, and/or the "Canik Fanatik Firearm Group", which is my personal fav...

Re: New purchase at DACA show in Dallas Saturday

Would love to hear more about your purchase. This is one of four .380's we've narrowed it down to. Sheild EZ, Springfield 911, and Bersa BPCC being the others. The wife has held them all, but we need to find ranges where we can shoot them all. That color just about knocked me out of my chair! :-D Ne...

Re: Laser Bore Sights.

Whether I am shooting at various targets that I have up on doors and walls, or at light switches, door knobs, etc., my dry fire practice has been...

Re: Hello from Nebraska

Hey Catch! I am just under a year into shooting, and the Elite-S was my first 9mm. I had shot a half dozen others 9's prior to purchasing it, but can state without doubt, it is the best shooter of all - end of story! Makes me look a whole lot better than I really am ;-) Just put another 200 rounds o...

Re: Smith & Wesson M&P Shield EZ

Thanks LT, yes - we are very aware of the SK. The challenge to work through with Sandy (my wife) is her comfort with the 9mm vs. the 380's. She has better overall control and consistency with the 380's she's had the opportunity to shoot, where with the 9mm's, not as much. I think it's a matter of ge...

Re: 2019 and Canik - What's Your Thoughts?

Dream world vs. reality I guess, for me. My dream would be to have the DA with front slide serrations, ambi-slide release (I shoot lefty), and the loaded chamber indicator on top of the slide. These three items would make it the absolute perfect 9mm handgun for me. Reality would be to throw their ha...

Re: Smith & Wesson M&P Shield EZ

Trying to decide between the Shield EZ or the the Springfield 911 for the wife. She likes the 911's grip and sights a bit better, while I think the EZ is much easier to rack with overall better functionality. Held them both and really pushed and prodded every which way. Have read, seen, and have bee...

Re: Hello from Georgia

" Here I thought you went and bought a SetilE." Made my night! I have the Elite-S, simply because I knew I'd instruct my daughter with it as her first 9mm at some point soon, and wanted that extra measure of safety. No worries for me; I've practiced quite a bit using my trigger finger to slap it dow...
