Re: For anyone that has trouble seeing the front sight(aka old eyes)

I am nearsighted, astigmatism and old eyes. I had a pair of glasses made for computer work so I could see the screen without looking through the bifocals. I can see the front sight perfectly. Things in the distance are a little fuzzy but, I can see the target well enough to hit center.

Re: Canik customer service

The general recommendation is run 124 gr NATO ammo for the first few hundred rounds. I ran probably 500 rounds through mine before I started running lighter ammo and have never had a problem.

Re: Striker pin hole wear?

I don't know if it is just this pistol but seems excessive for sub 2K round count.

Striker pin hole wear?

Anyone notice a wear pattern in the firing pin hole on their weapon? I have been changing some springs in mine and it looks like the hole is wearing funny. I only have about 1000-1500 rounds through it. Maybe this is what is causing the firing pins to break. I don't dry fire a lot either. https://i....

Re: Carrying with an empty chamber

When we were shopping for a house, the wife insisted on all the bedrooms being on the same floor and same end of the house. Having a big master bedroom away from the kids would have been nice and quiet, but too far from her. She is a mamma bear and don't you dare hurt one of her cubs. She is the sam...

Re: Carrying with an empty chamber

Interesting input from everyone. I don't carry, though I have a weapons license. If I did, I would carry my V2 with one in the chamber and in DA mode or some kind of Hammer fired cocked and locked. The trigger pull effort on the V2 is significant and long so you have to want to pull it. I really onl...

How about this one that’s on its way? Black Chrome Gold Cup 2, limited edition NIB.

1000 manufactured, discontinued years ago.
Beautiful. I could never own something like that. I would want to shoot it.

I so want a 1911. Just cannot justify it. But they look so cool. I like the look of the grips you have.

Re: What were you doing 50 years ago (1969)?

I was 8. We moved from CA to eastern KY. My Grand father had died and My grandmother was alone so we moved to allow her to stay home.

Oh and I thought everyone talked funny. Now I talked the same way.

Hit 41 years the 1st of JUN. If I had put a hit on her the day I met her, I'd be out on parole now. (KIDDING!) But I did tell her that on our 23rd anniversary. :d No, really, I did.

Hey Tejas, what what was the other signature line you told someone about the other day. I thought it was funny but couldn't find it.

Re: Any one tried one of these Speed loaders

Yeah, well, my wife reminds me every time I start looking at something else I don't need anymore, guns, golf clubs, car parts, computers, you name it. I appreciate her though. We would be broke if it weren't for her. 37 years yesterday. Love her more every day.

Yeah well. I am trying to get the wife to trade hers (the .22) for something in a larger caliber, I don’t really need anything else. I do however want to get a 1911 just because I think they are cool looking and historically significant. However if anyone would like to make a donation to the cause, ...

Re: Any one tried one of these Speed loaders

I use a target that has 9 6 inch circles on it. shoot 3-5 rounds into each circle at different distances. When I have shot all the circles, change out the target. The last ten rounds I shoot at one of the circles from 75 feet. Usually can get 7 out of 10 into the circle unless I have not shot for a ...
