Re: My pants are falling and ......

I've been using one from bluealphagear for the past year or so called the low profile belt in gray.

Open Carry: Retention always but never Serpa for a striker fired gun. I like Safariland.

Re: Canik TP9DA in FDE or Burnt Bronze??

I'm not looking to sell this Canik. It is a wonderful pistol, very similar to the Walther P99 that I had 15 years or so ago. I was just soliciting information on the finishes available. I recently purchased my first Canik, a TP9SFX in FDE and it has taken the place of my modded Gluck 34 for 3gun an...

Canik TP9DA in FDE or Burnt Bronze??

Does the Canik TP9DA come in Flat Dark Earth or just Burnt Bronze? I ordered one that I thought RSR indicated was FDE but when I opened the box it was a cerakote Burnt Bronze frame and slide. Perhaps RSR had a misprint on their dealer website? The listing is gone now and they only show the black mo...

Re: Holster Question: Self-Defense vs. Competition

Very good advice so far about starting out with an OWB holster and clothing issues to pay attention to.

Re: Ultrasonic cleaning of firearms

So far I've only used the HF ultrasonic cleaner to clean AR bolt carriers/bolts. I mix warm water with about 20% Simple Green. Seems to work well.
