Re: holsters

I'll admit freely I am only on my first holster, the Clinger "V3 Ultra-Conceal OWB", but I am really diggin' it. Clinger isn't lying when they say it and the "No Print Wonder" really tuck and conform the gun to the curve of your waist. I was concerned about many of the shirts I have, but now I see t...

Re: Factory Holster Retention Release TP9SFx

I thought you just applied inward pressure while drawing, and it eases out. Haven't messed with it much being a lefty.

Re: Weapon lights

Trying to explain more specifically, the adapter doesn't sit flush into that first row behind the muzzle under the rail on the DA, so I can't get the right side of the lights mount to grab the rail. Snug as a bug on the other two guns. Odd. What is the purpose of the adapter - simply for a flush, ti...

Re: Weapon lights

I mentioned I'd shout back after receiving my Olight. I entered this in another post here, sorry for the duplicate: "I received my Olight in the mail today, but after swapping the Picatinny adapter in, I can't get it to mount on the DA?

Re: New truck and house gun.

I received my Olight in the mail today, but after swapping the Picatinny adapter in, I can't get it to mount on the DA? It slides right on the Elite, and on my wife's VP9, but that first slot on the DA seems off. Did yours mount right up to your DA without hassle? I wound up taking off the adapter, ...

Re: holsters

Got them with my Elite & DA, but I'm a lefty, so no good here. I do let me wife practice with them until she gets a "real one". Even if not the best, I think it's a nice gesture to put them in the package. At the very least, it gives someone who never had a holster a chance to familiarize themselves...

Re: New TP9sfx Owner

Agree, Winchester NATO makes me dislike cleaning my guns more than normal. Black as coal, but fires quite well.

Re: Weapon lights

Just ordered my "Olight Valkyrie 2" this morning. Will let you know how I like it when it arrives. 400 lumens if I recall correctly.

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

I'm saving my last 200 rounds of Winchester 124gr NATO for this little sport. I was going to donate it to my father-in-law, but this Sub Elite is much sexier.....

"Hangover" Park, here. I have the DA and Elite - both steller performers.

Re: TP9SF Elite slide issue

I did the same thing 5 days after getting mine. I had just cleaned my wife's VP9, and went numb-in-the-brain after cleaning the Elite, and slammed the slide on from the rear and...jam! Took me about 25 minutes of carefully fiddling with it, and I remember needing to hold down "something" (can't reme...

"NIGHT FISION PERFECT DOT TRITIUM NIGHT SIGHTS" Question

Good evening, I am interested in getting these for my Elite, but also would like them on my DA. Can't seem to find info on whether they actually fit a DA, but would lean toward yes, since other TP series Caniks are listed. Can anyone confirm or quash the notion that they'll fit? Thanks very much, an...

Re: Switching back straps

I wish the Elite had swap-in side panels. I could use the smidge extra width.

Re: Who carries a Canik

Taking my CCW in April, and the thought was to carry my Elite. DA also fits in the holster, but I like the shorter Elite grip - and I shoot it with a higher degree of accuracy and confidence. But, I agree with you higgybaby, the new compact Elite will find it's way pretty quickly into my rotation, I...

Re: OCD: Obsessive Cleaning Disorder

I'm as nuts as you, LT. I try to rationalize to myself that cleaning it now will take less time than cleaning it after a few range sessions. I'll stick with that. 8-}
