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 ...

+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.

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...

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 ...

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...

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.

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...
