Re: AR10 stocks

I also standardized on the Magpul MOE+ grips (and FWIW, the Vortex one piece scope mount). So now no matter which AR15 or AR10 I am using, the length of pull, cheek weld, scope position and grip are the same. The match rifles all have Geissele SSA-E triggers and the combat ones have the S3G triggers...

Re: AR10 stocks

I have standardized on Magpul ACS for everything. Better cheek weld but not much added weight and a bit thicker to store in the safe.

Maybe add weights in the storage compartments?

I've only had one fixed (on a 24" 223) and still preferred the ACS.

Re: newb looking for range ammo advice

Once broken in with the NATO as above, I almost always use Speer Lawman 124. Always works and is on sale from time to time at $8.50/box with free shipping on the case from Target Sports USA which is pretty competitive. Stock up when on sale.

Re: Just Another Canik Sunday

Yep, took the son to the indoor range today and shot up a bunch of 9mm. The Elite-s was flawless (and accurate as above, ragged holes all day). The SFX has had a problem with the cheap WWB 124 NATO. The primers are failing at a 1-2 per mag rate. Not in the Elite and no other ammo in the SFX. Not sur...

Re: Any one tried one of these Speed loaders

No, there is practice for gun games, practice for combat, practice for accuracy and then just plain old having fun shooting.

Depends on what your goal is.

Re: Any one tried one of these Speed loaders

If shooting for speed, then one 8" target lasts a long time. As long as I am hitting it why change? (Sure, every once in a blue moon I might actually miss, but that's what pasters are for ) For accuracy, then yes, center cut of 8" at a slower speed. Buying a bunch of 8" stick on splatter targets mea...

Re: Any one tried one of these Speed loaders

Never realized that people load differently for the range. I always pre-load max mags and then at the range reload max mags. Shoot til the ammo runs out.

Which means that the Lula (and a spare and a spare for that one) is pretty much mandatory.

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

I saw the RMR as a nice to have. It is made for EDC and I just don't see carrying an optic making sense for me.

Still more frustrated with the lack of availability.

Re: My First Canik

Nice photo, but I believe that the sub does have a shorter RMR cut and only takes the Shield at this time.

A photo with a Holosun or Venom installed would disprove this if you can find one.

Re: How Canik TP9 Trigger Safety Works Video

There's also quite a bit of irony that those areas/states on that map that show the hightest amounts of homicides are also generally the states with the tightest gun control laws. While not every homicide is committed with a gun, it still goes to show that gun control does not stop bad people from ...

Re: How Canik TP9 Trigger Safety Works Video

If I can presume to clarify Janik's comment, most of the gun violence in the US is due to an inner city urban subculture, and even then only a few cities (Chicago, NYC, Miami, Philadelphia, LA) make up most of that. If this is accounted for, our gun crime rate is only slightly higher than anywhere e...

Re: How Canik TP9 Trigger Safety Works Video

Aha. I thought that you had mentioned a THUMB safety option (like a 1911 or S&W M&P9). Yes, this version is available in the US as I have one.

I agree that it is fairly useless and hard to manipulate. Thanks for the idea about changing the spring.
