Re: Happy July 4th weekend everyone!

Just don't blow off your trigger finger, and it'll be a good weekend!
The neighbors and I got about $600 worth of FW to blow up...I may just take my ears out with me! :lol:

Re: New Canik owner

Welcome, and good pick. Was my first Canik as well. Note the word "first" ;-)
There's no cure.

I just recently received my NRA Basic Instructor Certification, and prior to that RSO Cert. As I form my LLC, get my insurance and other business affairs in order, and continue my training in other disciplines, I am standing in as an apprentice with one of my main instructors in various classes (Bas...

Nice touch with the personal artwork. What does the wording underneath your picture and on the slide mean? (can't quite make it out)

Re: Trade Question

It all depends on what the purpose of the gun is - for you. Like Jester said, sizing down is one obvious trade-off. Aftermarket another.
More importantly, determine the main purpose and use of your Glock and if the Cat will still fit those needs.

Re: Newbie from MA

Yes, based on feedback here, it's crap shoot. Some have issues where NATO helps the gun through, where others feed anything into a new gun without issues.
After the growing pains with my Elite, I just made it a practice on my DA and wife's SC to throw NATO into it for the first range visit.

Re: How to tell when someone in the gun store is full of it

"How to tell when someone in the gun store is full of it"..... When their macho young employee, not even an RSO, walks in the range to try and help a new shooter, and insists on trying to load the rounds into the magazine - SDROWKCAB . This was a about 18 months ago, and I had to walk back out to t...

Re: Newbie from MA

You'll love the DA. Even "out of the box" the trigger is great, and a real flat shooter. It's my nightstand gun, and I trust it 100%! Interesting how I often see mention of "RSA issues". Honestly, and more appropriately, I'll state it's "new Canik shooter ignorance". I'll include myself in that cate...

Re: Hello From Northern IL

Good evening from a bit south in Hanover Park. :-H
If you ever have a reason to come down this way, I'd be glad to meet you at my stomping ground, Fox Valley Shooting Range. A real nice, modern indoor range; wife and I have a membership here.

Happy shooting! :-BD

Re: New owner from Houston checking in

Welcome!
Those were my first Caniks as well.The Elite is one of my main EDC guns, and the DA is my nightstand gun, and occasional carry.
Echo what's been said - great guns, great shooters.

Re: Olight for TP9sf elite

I have the combo, and the light is slightly over an inch past the barrel, as shown above, and the switch housing hangs about 1/4 of on inch below the trigger guard - under the actual light, of course.

I have his OWB holster for my Elite and the Baldr Pro, and like it very much. I know they have the molds for the mini & mini 2 - just can't remember if he has the SC mold yet. A few months back he said he was working on it.

Great idea! My Instructor does that for us on 3x5's. Randomly places 1, 2, or 3 anywhere on the cards.

Re: New to Canik

Welcome and great choice! I love my DA, and sometimes beat myself up for not shooting it more often. It is my nightstand gun with an Olight Mini slung on the bottom. I'll occasionally carry it if I am not doing anything overly active and wear the right cover garment. Damn fine shooter! Three cheers!...

Re: Revisiting some old favorites

It has not been fired due to it being the "Blackwater Edition", which was limited, and has an interesting backstory to it. Believe me, I'm dying to shoot it, but everyone keeps telling me to hold on to it for it's rarity (somewhat). No that the value of the gun has risen to epic monetary value.... b...
