Re: Turkish 1911 Review

Nerver had or shot a Tisas 1911 but my Hi Power Clone has been sweet from the first shot and not a minute's problems.
I was getting a little smack on the web of my hand so I put a no bite hammer on it and changed the grips.

Re: .45 Love.

I love .45's too. I have a Kimber Tactical II that I have shot in competition for a long time. I also have a SA Lightweight Champion Operator that I really like and a Glock 21 that I shoot at the GSSF matches. I have had several other 1911's along with an XDS in .45 and a Glock 30 that I carried a g...

Re: Enter Your Favorite Jokes...

Two blondes driving home late at night after visiting some bars.
One says " Oh heck, there is a police car behind us!"
The other one says " That really doesn't mean anything and we may not be in trouble unless his blue lights are on. Are they?"
Blonde answers "No Yes No Yes No yes No yes"

Re: What do you use to polish

I use Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish. It has enough grit to smooth and shine but not damage normally!

Re: Loving my new TP9sfx

I started shooting my reloads right from the start with no problems, some guns may need to loosen up a bit first.

My SFX is strictly a Red Dot gun, that is the reason I bought it.
I have lots of other guns and still shoot them with regular sights but it gets harder and harder with old eyes.

Re: holsters

I never took that piece of ugly out of the box but ordered an OWB from KT Mech holsters.
It works great for CCW, the range and competition.

Re: Advantage tactical pyramid sights

Way back when, before the Tactical Pyramids, there was another company with a very similar design.

It was a unique conceot but they never really worked ...

Re: Post your "MATCH" videos/pictures here.

I am shooting a sanctioned IDPA match next month that is only for Bug and Compact sized guns. Since canik doesn't have one yet I have only been shooting my Block in competition to get ready for the match.
I am so ready to get back to my SFX and Red Dot!

Re: Federal Ammo vs Fiocchi

One of my good shooting buddy doesn't reload so he usually buys reloads from a major supplier near by or he buys the federals usually 2000 at a time. Listening to him shoot is funny as it goes bang bang pop blam bang pow. All different sounds. Yesterday during a match his gun jammed up. We did not h...

Range Day

To be honest I went to the range to shoot a glock :shock: . I shot a GSSF match on Sunday and my score was way below my normal. I am usually about 82 total time and points down. Anything under 100 is very good as there are actually a good many in the 300-500 range. It was my fault completely as I ha...

Re: New addition..

Very nice and looks all original. Someone bought it and probably shot it a few times and then just kept it safe.

Re: OCD: Obsessive Cleaning Disorder

I shoot way too much and have too many guns to be cleaning OCD.
I usually run 2-500 rounds before cleaning unless I won't be shooting that gun for a while.
After every use they get wiped down before going back into the safe,
I do clean my CCW after every range trip though.

Re: New Clinger Ultra-Conceal OWB Holster Question

I use "Rusty's Rags" which is a silicone fleece pad to wipe my guns down after carrying. It does a nice job on kydex too and does not make them too slippery.

I use it on magazines too.
