Re: New Wheel Gun

If youi are going to put an optic on it, I think you are on the right path. I think the taurus will be fine for whatever you want to do with it. I don't have safe queens, even the like new 1906 .22 Winchester rifle I got passed down from my dad's Uncle, I shoot it. I have three 66's. A 2.5", 3" and ...

Re: TP9SF Elite First Range Trip!

Not yet. We have a box at our new reopened range. I remember buying the inserts but I am not sure they may be pre 2017 old dimensions. We are not IDPA there any more.
I will check it next thursday and see.

Re: TP9SFx with Red Dot....

For sure in IDPA you would be in Carry Optics and can have magwells and all the same mods as an ESP gun!
In USPSA also Carry Optics but I am not up on all the rules.

Thursday Night Indoor Match Results

With new owners at local range we are back to running our twice a month indoor pistol matches of which I am Co-Match Director! We shoot GADPA which is a blending of IDPA and USPSA. I was 8/19 overall and 2/8 in Concealed Carry Division and top Distinquished Senior 65+. CC requires shooting with conc...

Re: Hot Day Match with SFX and Red Dot!

Not really broke. Amazingly at 72 1/2 I have never broken a bone, never been in a hospital for anything other than routine and never really been sick so even with my whining I know I am blessed. My Chiropractor keeps my back relatively pain free as I have a couple of bad disks from thirty five years...

Re: Hot Day Match with SFX and Red Dot!

Yes, I know the way age catches up to us. One stage we shot from th passenger seat of a small BMW. Five Static targets to the right from the passenger window and then a hard turn left for five more targets and two were up and down behind barrels. Luckily head shots were available after the targets c...

Re: Hot Day Match with SFX and Red Dot!

OUr normal high should be 83 right now. Unusually hot this time of year. First five matches last year we either set up or shot in the rain or both. Not Thunderstorms but some pretty good rain. We shoot hot or cold, rain or shine!

Hot Day Match with SFX and Red Dot!

First let me get all the excuses out of the way! It was over 95 Degrees out on match day! I spent 4 1/2 hours in the heat the day before setting up the match, carrying steel, driving rebar etc! I also worked the match as an SO and shooting it also! I am twice as old as many of my competitors! :-D Th...

Re: TP9SF Elite First Range Trip!

I have heard of several people shooting it in IDPA CCP but it may have been a local match with no box check. I won't have access to a box until first part of july probably. My local IDPA club is doing a major renovation, relocating all thje shooting bays to a different direction. I doubt it will be ...

Re: TP9SF Elite First Range Trip!

I did it to my Sfx a little but not enough. I have a bump on side of my finger joint and trigger guard hurts it. Not as bad as a Glock but gets tender after a few hundred rounds. I usually put an H shaped band aid on my finger to pad it.

TP9SF Elite First Range Trip!

Picked it up at my FFL yesterday after USPSA took three extra days to deliver it past "expected delivery date" and then notified me 10 minutes before the store closed even though actual delivery was five hours earlier. I hate USPS! Anyway field stripped the Elite, wiped it down inside and out, dry f...

Re: Holster for SFL

https://i.ibb.co/4480zNX/Canik-in-BP-Holster.jpg I just picked up my SF Elite a short while ago and while I was playing with it I tried it in a holster that I really like from Blackpoint Tactical. It was made for a CZ P-07 which I don't have anymore. It fit like it was made for it. That may open up...

Re: "Worst gun I ever bought was..."

I guess I have been lucky as I have owned many,many guns and never had one that I hated or was unreliable. Some required minor tweaking but nothing major. I have had some that I tried to like but they just never worked out for me. Ruger LC9, smooth trigger and reliable but I just never liked it. Glo...

Re: Few Questions about new TP9SF Elite One purchase.

I have an SFX with a Red Dot and just ordered a TP9SF Elite online. Everything I have heard and read about this gun says it is as good out of the box as the SFX and that is saying a lot. They are supposed to come with the newer internals but there was not much wrong with the old externals. I went ri...

Re: USPSA Match Today

I was supposed to shoot an ICORE (Revolver) match but it got cancelled due to rain and storms. Local range had a "falling steel" match. Something new they are trying. It was sold out but they had a few cancellations but severe weather was predicted. Turned out to be one light sprinkle x( I am going ...
