Re: Missing my Canik...

I've been interested in the PX4 since I'm a fan of DA/SA handguns, how's your experience with it? The PX4 is probably one of the most underrated guns out there. Throw a $10 "D" hammer spring in there and $17 for talon grips, and you have a great DA/SA shooter. It may not be a looker, but I find ove...

Re: need your thoughts

+1 on the Paul Harrell vids.

I also find this to be an excellent resource:

Detailed test results, photos, vids, sortable tables. It's a great place to find info on lots of specific ammo types.

Re: I Didn’t realize...

Nice I believe I have 3 in my collection at the moment, 92, cheetah, and a helwan(egyptian 51(?) clone. CZ's have overtaken Glock as my most numerous brand at around 9 or 10 and 3 clones. I think CZ is second, with 4 in the collection. The Px4 compact and Cz p07 are so evenly matched for me for car...

Re: Night Sights for Canik (Night Fision and Others)

Here are the TruGlo Tritium Pro night sights I got from Century Arms. They are decent sights, and I find the front sight to be a little brighter than the Night Fision front sight in the dark. Would it be fair to say you find the NF sights a bit easier to acquire in daylight or low light, while the ...

Re: House Judiciary Passed a ‘High Capacity’ Mag Ban

I hope I don't see it happening. Remember, they've done it before, the only reason it's still not in force is a sunset clause was added to the bill at the last minute. I wish I could say I trusted POTUS to veto this, but after the bump stock thing, and some of the statements he's made regarding red...

More than just handgun ammo...

Re: TP9 Sub Elite is almost here!

This new Sub Elite pistol in a DA/SA variant would be THE perfect carry gun. I'm not as enamored as I thought I would be with my new TP9sf Elite. Grip length is fine but the barrel/slide is one inch to long. YMMV If they offered the Sub with the TP9DA trigger I would snap one up in a heartbeat.

Re: Best finish for durability?

I haven't been overly impressed with any of the cerakote finishes I've seen regardless of manufacturer. Why not? With a statement like that it would be nice if you provided a little more information. The examples I've seen seem to be more susceptible to wear marks and scratches than the typical nit...

Until the recipient opens the PM it looks like it hasn't been sent, but it has.

We call that a "feature".
Excellent! I enjoy a feature rich environment.

So when I send I PM I notice it stays in the "Outbox" and doesn't show as sent. Is that normal?

Re: Another run on guns and ammo?

This!! What we really need to worry about is the much discussed "red flag" laws. Ignoring for the moment the blatant un-constitutional abuse of power - one can't even begin to imagine the extent to which this would be abused. Ex-wives, jealous girlfriends, former business partners, crazy neighbors, ...
