Re: Gun show tomorrow and $$ in my pocket

:d Sounds like a good haul. You forgot to mention if you got any jerky. It's not a gun show without some beef jerky. :d Lots of beef sticks and smoked cheese. It’s almost sinful not to get that or jerky at a show. Grabbed a couple MRE”s. Boys have been dying to try one. Gonna laugh when they do. De...

Re: Gun show tomorrow and $$ in my pocket

The gun shows near me have degenerated to being pretty much one firearm vendor. There is no competition, so mostly MSRP on everything. I only went to the last one to sign a petition to repeal i-1639. It was truly sad.

Actually not even any beef jerky.

Re: After market parts

I do know that you can take a Q5 upper assembly and run it on a SFx lower, and vice versa. So, my guess would be that the trigger components are pretty interchangeable. Canik mags work in the Q5 but not the other way around, because the Q5 mags are shorter.

Re: After market parts

The SFX is largely a Q5 clone. I don’t have a Q5 or SFx to do a detailed comparison, but there probably is some truth to some parts compatibility.

Re: Gun lights... Streamlight TLR vs Surefire X300

Another plug for the Streamlight. I’ve run mine in drills and it’s been holding up fine. Not a high round count on it, probably under 500 rounds so far. I had been leaning to the surefire based on durability testimonials on a different forum. However, I’ve followed a pretty epic thread regarding Ber...

Re: John Wick III

I don’t think I saw any Canik. Saw some pretty tricked out TTI Glocks, PPQ, HK P30L and an Arex REX Alpha, though.

Re: Shot Show 2020

If Canik will continue down the path of copying Walther, maybe a steel framed SFX to compete against Walthers Q5 match, steel frame.

Re: “Leftovers” that accumulated

Many of these I got when I was working at an indoor range. We would try stuff out when it came in. Some were given to me by friends when they got rid of a caliber, or when they transferred, and couldn’t pack ammo. My carry rounds evolved over time as loads did and data became more available. I prett...

“Leftovers” that accumulated

Organizing some ammo, ran across a box that I would put “leftover” rounds into when a mag was full, just to have some examples of rounds carried. These were some of the highlights: https://i.ibb.co/wMXRr8y/AA56-CB08-4-AE3-40-D4-9-F1-E-F95422035-C1-A.jpg Winchester white box 115gr HP. Winchester 147g...

Re: John Wick III

I have not seen John Wick...... is it worth watching? First one got me hooked with the action sequences, and simple story line (don’t mess with a mans car, dog, or heart. Especially if he’s a bad mutha’). Second one kept me engaged as the whole underground network was expanded. Haven’t seen the thi...

I seem to hav problems with my timer sometimes at indoor ranges, because of other shooters.

Re: Trigger Therapy Jan 12, 2020 TP9DA, V2, EC and CZ P07

Looks like fun.

I hit the indoor range last week.

Like you said, paper targets are good for accuracy testing.

If you’ve got a shot timer, paper can be good again for drills that require speed and accuracy.

Re: Brand New TP9SFX - A DOZEN malfunctions out of 100 rounds

Yes I got a spring very quickly from Century... Maybe 10 days and it completely resolved the issue. Had zero malfunctions on my last range trip. Glad to hear things are running smoothly for you now. I can relate to the frustration of having a new pistol and problems in the first outing. Happened to...

Re: Looking for a Conceal carry gun. Help!

I’m a DA/SA decocker fan for carry, and moved away from considering most striker fired handguns for concealed carry now. So, my preferred recommendations wouldn’t likely thrill you. In the size range and action type you listed, I have the most experience with Glock. I am also more of a Walther fan b...
