Re: Low/Med/High compressed ready positions question

Where HCR generally keeps your weapon pointed at the target, the lower position (indexed to the base of the sternum or so) allows you to drop the muzzle so you're not pointing at things/people that don't need holes.

Re: Switching back straps

You got it. Knock the pin out and swap away. I can't speak to which size is mounted, but my Elite had the smaller grip installed. I'm pretty sure most come that way.

Re: Anyone use a portable gun safe in your car/truck?

Got the 2-pack, keyed alike pistol boxes from Amazon. The safe fits in my center console and the cable snakes out and around the seat rail.

Re: New Holsters Available for Canik

Safariland is a whole different animal than Concealment Express. The info from Century Arms says the 6360 (RH only available) fits Caniks. The Safariland site says that one fits the Walther P99 series, so... The other Safariland is the 57# GLS series. Canik does/did show up in that "fits these model...

For what it's worth, Lucky Gunner recently posted a video to YouTube about the .32ACP as a defensive cartridge. I haven't watched it, but noted that it popped up in my feed.
Oops. Disregard. They were talking .32 revolver ammo. Interesting video but not related to this.

Re: New Holsters Available for Canik

They've got the whole lineup of CE holsters available for these Canik models.

The CE IWB I've got for my XDS works great. No way to add a claw to it, but a custom foam wedge makes it a nice AIWB holster.

Re: Molle Holster For TP9DA

Also....aliengear supposedly has some molle holsters They don't have a direct fit for Canik in their Shapeshift line, which has the molle attachment. There is a Canik shell in the hybrid models that will allegedly fit all the models. I stand corrected, there is a molle rig for their cloak mod line....

First this (wife's current favorite for her EDC), then some training, then the AR build. Though an RIA 1911 would make the list somewhere

Re: SFX Blowback Sparks...

I've seen this with an M9 and an older XD. Both instances were long enough ago that I don't recall the ammo. The RO when the XD did it said it was likely slow burning powder, but didn't seem otherwise concerned.

Re: Canik TP9SA, SF, V2 18 rd mags for $19.95

Man, it seems like more and more the shipping ruins what seems like a good deal for me. I get all excited about a deal on a gun or something and proceed to checkout and they want something crazy for shipping. Buyer beware I guess. I'm pretty sure I may have passed on a couple of good deals because ...

Re: Whats your backup mag EDC situation?

1 extra mag, single or double stack. Off-side appendix.

9 round mag for the XDs. 18 round mag for my Elite. For the SD9VE, the spare is the only mag that can actually take 16 rounds; I've got 15+1 in the gun.
