Re: 20 round magazine question

FWIW, my 20 round SFX mags have always worked perfectly in my Elite-S (although I have never pushed up on them when cycling at the same time).

I do need to get those sleeves, just for aesthetics.

Re: Why you should stay out of NY 3.5 year sentence for having 4 guns in vehicle

A bit more background. Telfair was already arrested once for a NY weapons violation, so this was a second offense for a gun crime in NY. Also, although he was a first round pick, he was considered a bust as he never averaged double figures and was traded a lot. He made $20M in his career, but as the...

Re: Why you should stay out of NY 3.5 year sentence for having 4 guns in vehicle

When they train you for your CCW, they typically stress that state laws vary and that you need to know the reciprocity states. I used to have to drive from NC to MD and sometimes even pass through DC. I either didn't bring my gun or stayed in VA and left it in the hotel in a locked suitcase. You DO ...

Still yearning for a Sub or SFX Mod2 though.
On second thought, there is no guarantee that an SFX Mod2 upper will be compatible with the original SFX.

Re: Fireball with certain types of ammo

You should never mix Fireball or any kind of whiskey with shooting certain types of ammo... Sorry, couldn't resist. Anyway, the slower powder is the reason. It is especially apparent in a shorter barrel, but probably not that much of a difference. The reason that LAX used a slow burning powder for t...

Re: Another run on guns and ammo?

It appears that the armed Israelis can open carry their AR carbines as long as the magazine is removed but very handy.

Interesting that the 7-10" pistols haven't caught on their as they look like they are going for the lightest options.

Re: Another run on guns and ammo?

I think that part of that is kids are being taught that identifying with a religion is bad. just like they are being taught how great socialism is. Most of what I've seen from school is lies of omission and perspective. I have more of an issue with my daughter's Girl Scout program. The Boy Scouts h...

Re: Epstein

Exactly my point.

Re: This trio

Interesting. So if you have an SFX with a TS trigger and red dot, then buy a cheap SF One, you can simply swap uppers and have a TS triggered SF when you want one and swap uppers when you want the SFX again. I was planning on doing this with a new SFX Mod2 because I like the Elite slide release, but...

New to the party but I started w/the TP9SF One Series because the local Academy had 10% off for Mil last month. That rolled into this week with a Combat Elite Executive and a SFX w/red dot from a local shop. CAN'T WAIT FOR RANGE DAY!! Yep, just checked Academy and the SF One (in "Patriot Brown"??) ...

Re: Disappointed

Shooting offhand shows your accuracy with that pistol. You can put a gritty 12lb trigger in a ransom rest with no negative effect on accuracy. So if I fire Elite 1 with my dirt cheap ammo and I put a nice group at point of aim and fire Elite 2 exactly the same and the groups are repeatedly low and ...

Re: New member from Houston Texas

I agree with all of the above.

However, after standardizing on Critical Defense a few years ago for carry I am probably going to switch to 124gr HST.

And perfectly legal in a lot of US states - except that you will have 20 squad cars surrounding you as soon as someone ignorant of the law starts screaming (and judging by a number of Youtube videos, plenty of policeman also don't understand open carry).

Re: Another run on guns and ammo?

On another note, if Century/Canik doesn't get the Sub and SFX Mod.2 and any other new goodies out soon, they are going to miss the usual big upswing in gun sales that inevitably follows these mass shootings (and knee jerk demands for gun confiscation). After these peaks, there is usually a sustained...

Re: Disappointed

I used to bullseye womp rats in my T16 back home. I think the point that people are trying to make is that unless you do everything you can to reduce/remove variables that can affect a shot, judging accuracy and also precision, is quite subjective. To me, I'm much more concerned about precision. If...
