Re: New CZ addition

I run an 18 lb recoil spring with a stainless guide rode. I don't like the whole double action thing and only bought it because of the manual safety that allows it to be carried cocked and locked. The P07 is one of my most accurate pistols or I just shoot it well.

Re: Good AR optic?

I'm not into spending big money. I've got a Burris 332 tactical scope and really love it. I believe its was $300 something on sale. I have a Sparc red dot that is very nice, bright I like too, $100 something on sale. I've also used hunting scopes like a 4x12 and like those for long shooting.

Re: "Worst gun I ever bought was..."

I had a ParaOrdnance double stack .45. I loved the feel of the gun, I have bit hands and it filled out great. Unreliable as hell. I was lucky to get a full magazine through it. Didn't matter what ammo. This was back in the mid 90's. Maybe they got better but Ill never have one again. Maybe you had ...

Re: Mobile 1 Lube for TP9SA

I think any full synthetic is more than adequate. I use 0w20 0r 5w20 if going to the range and I'm shooting a lot. But for carry I will pick Balistol with a very light coating.

Re: Taurus Spectrum

I no nothing about the Taurus. I've purchased 4 LCP's. If you shop around I saw one at PSA for $152, contractor yellow. I think they are a great little pocket pistol. I'm going to run one at a IDPA match this year for fun and practice. I use 6 rd 3rd finger mags and Ruger 7 rd mags. The first 3 have...

Re: Canik Price Drops

I have 2 Elites. This new pricing on the just the pistol is very attractive. On the other hand if you want to sell or trade I feel that we just lost value on the ones we own.

Re: Disappointed

Final chapter. I went home one evening and there was a UPS tag that said "adult signature required". Even though I sent it from a FFL and requested it be returned there. Regardless my wife was able to acquire the package. I would think an email like hey your pistol is done we are shipping, but no co...

Re: Disappointed

The Elite was mailed on Tuesday evening 3/19. Remarkably Century contacted me 1st thing Friday morning 3/22. They said the crown on the barrel is bad. They asked if I would be ok with changing the barrel because it would have a different serial number. I told them I was fine with that. That's the la...

Re: Disappointed

I emailed Century again and included my test results. They sent me a return number without hesitation or questioning me. I asked for the pistol to shoot to point of aim at 25 yards, to include a picture of target and to specify what ammo was used to achieve the results. It's a beautiful pistol and i...

Re: Disappointed

Recap is I bought the tungsten Elite 1st. Man this is a great pistol I thought. Ordered a green one for my collection. Shoots low and right. I filed a claim with Century. The 1st guy pretty much blew me off, I pursued the matter telling them I wanted them to test fire the pistol. They claimed they ...

https://i.ibb.co/4fr4p75/IMG-2236.jpg I just got a box of .380, haven't tried them yet. I read they are supposed to offer superior penetration and still work after going through barriers. I don't believe most self defense .380 rounds have enough penetration. I don't feel the need to buy these in bi...

Re: Canik Warranty issues?

I have a 26 year old Glock 19. There is no bare metal anywhere. My 1st Elite has shiny steel showing top, bottom of barrel and on starting on sides of chamber. I think whatever they finish the barrel with isn't to tough or something.

That's pretty amazing. The PPQ isn't at the top of my want list. This certainly moves it up towards the top though.

Re: What handgun do you EDC the most?

Battle worn red Springfield 2.0 Mod 4. She's a bit chunky, but fine for winter. 16+1. I've carried it for several months now. I don't rotate guns. I keep that same familiarity for the season. When it's t shirts only I've always used a G19. The one gun that is always with me is my LCP. Often I leave ...
