Re: Messed up before 1st shot!

No, used the screws supplied with your Canik. everything that comes with a red dot are their specific screws to mount the optic to their risers, base plate etc. Or for Glock or some other specific application. For now you could mount the stock rear sight and plate and go shoot.

Well I went to the range and shot this today and I have some bad news. After shooting this I cannot figure out why I paid more than three times this cost for my CZ Shadow 2 SA. It shot FANTASTIC and was a joy to shoot. I shot 110 rounds with no failures. 115gr wwb fmj, 115gr Remington umc jhp, 124gr...

I'm happy with my Taurus...I looked at Girsan a few years ago, but reliability was spotty from my online research...and I think EAA has also been spotty with service. I actually went in to look at a used Taurus, It was more money and no warranty. Davidsons is the distributor and hopefully they woul...

Yeah I have officially given up on trying to find ammo and when I do find it anywhere it's just to high. I have set aside my sacrificial ammo and am rationing, I should have enough to last about 6 months at current use. I will see where the market and world is at then and re-evaluate.

I never really owned a Beretta, I had a first run Taurus when they bought the factory. I compared it to my friends actual Beretta and from what I remember they were pretty much identical. Can't wait to get this to the range tomorrow and put .......20-25 rounds through it, lol

Just picked this up today, Girsan Regard MC, I wanted to get another Beretta for some time but just didn't want to spend the money on one. I got all my CZ's before I found out Canik made clones. I hope this Turkish manufacturer lives up to Canik quality. It does seem really well made, we shall see o...

For a retention holster I use the Blackhawk Serpa that works on a G20, fits perfect except for a little space in the bottom due to the difference in length.

More like a Glock fanboy. I have a few and can shoot them pretty well. I believe them to be overpriced because of their name. I prefer my CZ's at the range over Glocks. I would not take any Glock on earth over my TP9 DA though for any reason. Had a guy compare Canics to Hi point one time, obviously ...

Thanks but I really don't have a problem with it. Its still a pleasure to shoot especially with the red dot, its a tac driver. I am looking forward to the days when ammo is more abundant so I can enjoy shooting again.

I took the TP9 SFx to the range today with the lighter recoil spring I got from Canik. Function was much better with 115gr Federal, it ejected brass the normal distance and didn't drop them on my feet. I had no FTF and recoil altogether just seemed smoother, so thumbs up on the lighter recoil spring...

Getting guns has not really slowed down. Prices are higher and I had to make a 240 mile round trip twice to get this. Usually these are all over my area cheaper than what I paid for this. Ammo on the other hand is another story. Black Friday sale, CZ Shadow 2 SA.

For some reason my SFx did not like Winchester NATO and shot reg 115 gr just fine. My TP9 DA eats anything.
