Re: Anyone shoot 10mm

Glock 20 here. It's all stock except traction grips. Right now 10mm ammo is much more available than 9mm or .40. And the prices haven't really jumped up on it so much. I have a 9mm Springfield XDG and wouldn't mind trying out the Springfield 10mm version too.

Re: Any Glocksters out there have the G 43X?

It feels a lot smaller than a 19 carrying IWB. I'm very pleased with it. I carry mine in a Red X IWB holster and it's a real comfortable set up. I like the full length grip. Personally I wouldn't spend the money on the shield arms mags. But it is an attractive option.

Re: Firearm Insurance

I have a great agent at Erie. She added my firearms to an existing inland marine policy (funny the name cause there is no boat involved). My wife's diamond ring and a couple other things were on there. I gave every detail, night sights, optics and even specific colors and of course serial #s. The co...

Re: Getting organized

That's going to be real handy.
This weekend I was digging for a 12mm wrench. I fished out 4- 13mm wrenches. Finally found a 12mm. Thankfully all my sockets are on rails. I should take 1 set of wrenches and hang them on the wall like my grampa had.

Re: The case for caliber diversification (Ammo shortages)

I have a 10mm and added a .40 last year. Just wanted to try one out. I'd like to have a .357 Sig barrel for it but haven't seen any for the 2.0 S&Ws yet. I would imagine a lot of revolver calibers would be more available too in a shortage.

Re: Top 5 guns not to panic buy

I've never panicked purchased a weapon. I have been seduced by PSA emails with a price that made me drool, click, click and it's on the way!
I'll say this about .40s. I have 2- SW MP2s, 4" barrels. The .40 is much snappier than the 9mm. And that varies by ammo.

Re: Looking for a Conceal carry gun. Help!

I've become quite partial to my G43X. It's thinner than what I've carried in the past. I love that it's got a full length grip. For those who want more capacity, Shield Arms is making a flush fitting 15 round magazines for them.

Re: What is your preferred way to conceal and carry?

The most comfortable and easy 9mm to carry by far I've found is my G43X in a RedX IWB holster. I don't know the degrees but it has a good amount of forward tilt. Winter time I like bigger 4" plus pistols in OWB holsters. Also Duluth clothing makes some good items to carry in. Here is their firehouse...

Re: 9mm ammo quality observation

I don't understand the finish on that Winchester steel case. It's not slippery at all and doesn't slide well. It won't function well in my ETS magazines. Tul ammo is a much better choice for steel case. Any steel case ammo makes your gun dirtier because the case doesn't seal in the chamber like a br...

Re: Lefty slide release on SFX?

I’m a lefty and one thing I really like about the Elite Combat is that the slide release is ambidextrous and I switched the mag release to be lefty as well. Does anyone know if there’s an ambi lefty option for the SFX? Thanks! Can't answer your question, but wanted to comment. I'm a lefty and don't...

Re: Any trap shooters??

I shot sporting clays once last year. I think it's similar. Pretty big fun. My buddy did quite well with a 12 gauge pump. I used a 12 gauge pump as well. Didn't do very well my first time out.

Re: reloading self defense rounds

I think similar ballistics would be found in Winchester nato 124 ball. It's basically +P and really reasonable on sale. If you like to reload and want to load hollow points for practice I think that's fine. There has been discussion in the past about using ammo you reloaded in a shooting. Even if th...

My club runs IDPA matches from April thru October every year. I shoot and work almost every match. It's a great means to get in a lot of practice and do things you wouldn't usually do. For example sitting in a row boat holding an oar and the bad guys show up. Our matches are a lot of fun and the sta...

Re: Springfield Armory Hellcat

It looks chunky like my Springfield mod 2, 4.0. For a compact pistol I picked up a 43X. Very thin, nice grip. I'm good with 10 rounds. If you need more Shield arms has created a 15 round flush fitting mag for them.

Re: Springfield Armory Hellcat

I enjoy my SA XD Mod. 2 4" 9mm. It shoots accurate & is reliable. The Grip & Grip angle is great. Only thing I don't enjoy is the amount of trigger creep before you feel the wall. I'm interested in the Hellcat, will have to go check it out soon. https://i.ibb.co/27mPD2C/XD.jpg I have one like yours...

Re: Need some Glock help

I recently got a Gen 5, G17. The slide finish looks super and it is beveled for easy holstering. The mag well is flared nicely and there are 4 different backstraps for it. I have the thin extended beavertail on mine and it feels amazing, grip texture too. I have had Gen 2,3,4 G19s and Gen 4, G20. Th...

Target Sports is my go to. Prime membership will save 50-60 cents per box off regular pricing and if you want to order one box of ammo, shipping is still free.
