Re: Thursday Night Indoor Match Results

I tried shooting my TP9sf Elite in last nights match. Not quite as sure as I am when shooting SFX with dot but still managed 7/19 overall against probably 5 guns with optics and one open gun and I have to draw from concealment. 3 out of 7 in Concealed Carry Division, Elite is a fine gun and fun to s...

Re: TP9SF ELITE SLIDE RELEASE MOD. TO MAKE IDPA CCP LEGAL

I have not but some quick measuring looks like you would have to lose 0.83 to be legal. The entire right slide release could be removed and an inside squared washer could be put in it's place on shaft and pinned with original pin. That way you wouldn't have to grind on the slide release unless a rep...

Re: newb looking for range ammo advice

I stay with 124gr and if you are not going to reload, go with whatever brass cased ammo you can get the best deal on. You can check prices on sites like AmmoSeek and Ammograb but I usually get my best deals in emails from places I buy ammo, guns and parts. Target Sports USA usually has a great deal ...

Re: Need opinions

I currently have a Glock 19 gen 3 and a G19 gen 5. I also have a 19X and a G21 .45. I mainly have them as I shoot some of the Glock matches and they won't let me shoot my Caniks! As far as grip angle and shootability my SFX and Elite beat the Glocks in every way. I moved from Glocks to CZ's because ...

Re: 135gr Acme plated bullet load data/experience

I have loaded the 135 gr bullets from Acme,Bayou and SNS, I find them a good compromise between the 125 and 147 gr and have a little more oomph for knocking down steel. I have found 4.0 of W231/HP38 at 1.100 will give me a power factor of 132 average . Comfortable and accurate bullets. I shoot a lot...

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.

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.

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...

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 ...
