Re: Dorain...........!

Right now it looks like Dorian is not going to hit Florida full on. It is turning North and heading up the coast. Good chance it will be several miles off of the Florida coast. Hurricanes do strange things and we won't know for sure until Monday. Moving pretty slow right now. Florida will get a bunc...

I had a traveling job and I told my new wife that good jobs were a lot harder to find than a good wife.

Re: What were you doing 50 years ago (1969)?

I was building a microwave system to support a Kentucky educational TV system. I worked for a company that built Microwave Systems in California. I traveled the US building microwave systems for various Telephone Companies. In 1969 it was Gen Tel of Kentucky.

Re: Which TP9 Would Be the Best All-Around Choice.

Before you pick a gun I suggest you check out red dot sights and determine if you might get one sometime in the future. If there is any chance you might go for a red dot sight, them make sure the P9 you choose has the red dot cut in the slide. For everything but carry, you can't go wrong with the P9...

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

Hi Flingit1200s,

Congrats on your new Ruger. I shoot a S&W Victory with 4K rounds of Blazer RNL, I have had no failures. The Blazer is accurate, a great range ammo and good prices. Mini Mags are very good but a step up in price.

Hi LT,

Thanks for sharing your pictures. You might try aiming at a darker back ground to get a better view of the Ring and Dot.

Re: Any way to make the slide easier to rack TP9SF

Make sure she is using the correct technique to rack the slide. Is she pushing with opposing hands and not just pulling back with one hand on the slide.

Take a look at Ford Refinishing in Crystal River, Fl. They do it all. Some excellent pictures on their site.

Re: Mobile 1 Lube for TP9SA

Hi GaCop, I don't use motor oil to lube or protect my guns. First off you won't get the same level of corrosion protection. Motor oil protects by emersion and you will need to keep you gun wet for the best protection. Motor oil does give good lubrication but I don't know how good that would be if th...

Re: TP9SF - Coming This Week

Hi Hipshot50,

I have the SF and never had any problems with shooting 115 grain loads. I have shot S&B, Fiocchi and Magtech. They all operated great with no FTE or FTF. Just stay away from low velocity rounds while you break it in a bit.

Re: I want this gun!

Hi runeight,

That looks like a Llama 1911. Llama is a long time gun maker. Has been around since the early 1900. I don't know much about this model but they made a bunch of pistols during WWII. I remember selling Llamas at a gun store I worked at in 1952.
