Re: Holster for SFL

MDJ Holsters.......I have 4.They are about $40, and are leather back with kydex holder.
If you want adjustable tension- they are a couple bucks more.

If ...

Re: Practice Ammo

+1 on the Gecco and S&B....never an issue with either on all my 9mm's and 380"s. And its usually better priced.

Re: My pants are falling and ......

Hah!......my pants been falling for a while- my weight fluctuated near 30% this past year. I settled on 1.5" web belts. You can cinch them to your exact waist size- not like standard belts where you have to choose a little tight or a little loose. The heaviest gun I have carried out away from home w...

Not familiar with the 320.....but always thought the older model 228 (M11) was the best handgun in the world- still do.

Re: Tp9da first shots

Congratulations............ The DA is my favorite striker gun no doubt (I have 2). The trigger is just about perfect- without any mods! Since I am an old da/sa hammer gun enthusiast (Sig, Beretta, Bersa).... the trigger on the DA suits me well. I also have the Tristar (Canik) C-100.....another near ...

Re: Sig strikes again

Is that a single action gun? If yes....then I could understand some malfunction could set it off.
But if double action?- that would require a trigger pull.

Re: Advice and insight anyone?

I really like the Tristar C-100. The one with an aluminium frame.

The old style Sig 228 is exceptional and the Bersa 9UC (newer model is the TR9) is a fine shooter.

And if you decide for a a striker gun...the Canik TP9 DA is top of the line. Unbelievable DA/SA trigger out of the box.

Re: Canik SFX warranty/shipping

Wow!.....this is unheard of. If you bought the gun NEW- then it shouldn't cost to ship it back for warranty work. If used- then on your dime. I sent my SF Elite back for repairs and Century sent me a shipping label for FedEx. Didn't cost me anything- and FedEx brought the gun back to my door. If you...
