Re: Need some Glock help

I have 2nd and 3rd gens only. The finger grooves never really bothered me on the 3rd gen. I’m right handed, so the ambi updates never meant much to me, and I tend to operate the slide and not the slide lock/release, so only the mag button applies here anyway. I didn’t find much in the later generati...

Re: Anybody have on of these or layed hands on one?

Seems similar in concept to the Millet DMS-2. I have an even more old school scope. A Japanese made Pro-diamond 1.5 - 5x turkey scope. Early 3 gun scope before, low magnification “tactical” scopes were cool or common. No illumination, but some great Japanese glass, and the diamond is good for fast a...

Anyone, Scorpion vs Stribog?

Thinking hard about adding a carbine based pistol to my lineup. The CZ Scorpion has been out for several years. The Slovakian made Stribog, doesn’t have as much of a track record, but early reviews look promising. I’ve shot scorpions in a few configurations, unbraced, pistol braced, and the 16 inch ...

Re: curious

I have Combat Elite S and I am using MKEK NATO 9mm , which is same ammo using my Turkish Police Dep and Turkish Military. We used to be able to get MKEK ammo in the US, through a importer, who rebranded it as ZQi. It seems like they went under, some time in 2017, and I haven’t seen any Turkish MKEK...

Re: I Didn’t realize...

Beretta marketing and timing can be kind of on disconnect. They came out with a single action, striker fired gun about the time the market got saturated with them, and about the time I was phasing them out for carry, in favor of DA/SA pistols. That’s probably the only thing that has kept me from get...

Re: curious

Unfortunately one of the rounds my TP9DA liked the best was MEN 124gr fmj. I think it was a military contract over run, and was only temporarily available. It has also done well, with S&B 124gr and Magtech 115 and 124gr.

Did not like Remington UMC, functioned, but not consistent as far as accuracy.

Re: 10,000 rounds through a Canik TP9SF Elite

For pistols I carry I started logging round counts, ammo brand,type, etc. I tend to run them with stock parts, and run them pretty heavy when I first get them. I run them in drills and put around 2,000 rounds of ammo through them before I mess with anything in the realm of trigger/hammer/striker or ...

LucaBrasi,

Thanks! And yes, I did the stipple job. I went slow and light. I figured I could go more aggressive later if I didn’t like this level of stippling. It seems just right to me.

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...

I Didn’t realize...

...I was a Beretta fanboy. Acquired these over time, since around 1992. The 92FS was my first handgun I purchased after I had turned 21. Picked up the 21a for a pocket gun, the 85 for my wife, then the Px4 compact followed by the full size Px4 (because it was dirt cheap, used in a pawn shop). The mo...

GECO 124gr (RUAG Germany)

Found some of this at the local Sportsman’s store. Anyone run it yet?
I know my pistols functioned well and displayed exceptional accuracy with similar packaged MEN, German manufactured 124gr.

Re: What are your thoughts? Forum vs Social Media

Yes, but it has been a bit busier than I had planned and has actually been a contributing factor in me having less shooting time. (Working on a third medical certification for the last year.) Nearest ranges to me have been shut down as well for the foreseeable future. So my best shooting range acces...

I’m guilty of spending less time on gun forums over the last year or so. I’ve had some other priorities after retiring from the Navy, and earning new civilian certifications for my current job.

Re: Shot my first 1911, and was amazed!

There is a reason the 1911 has a following all its own. When you look at most standard loads for 9mm and .45, if you get into reloading, you find that the powder charge sizes are about the same. So, the report and recoil ate similar in energy. Recoil can be a bit different, I find a .45 to be more o...

Re: 1911 .45acp questions

I just found a lightly used RIA with compensator. It’s one of their higher end models. They only want $450.00 for it. I just bought my new Shield, but 450.00 for a nice compensated RIA may be to hard to pass up I’m not aware of any RIAs that came with comps. I’d be concerned about someone putting a...

Double check the rules for carry where you are going. Many National Parks won’t allow weapons at all, while National Forrests do.
