Re: New Tag Line..

I fully support your decision to cross the road as a tran-chooster, as long as it's within the confines of a legally designated crosswalk.

That said, I think I'm keeping my signature line as-is.

Re: 2020 Shot Show

Just saw the S333 revolver. Shoots TWO .22 magnum bullets per trigger squeeze. Two barrels, four pair revolving cylinder, just ridiculous. Apparently it was out last year but never heard of it before. The Standard Manufacturing S333 (Thunderstruck) came out last summer, but it is hard to find and i...

Re: CANIK TP9 SUB ELITE

Got to fondle a couple more Sub Elites at a local show this afternoon. Dealer there had one each of the Black and Tungsten. I've been wanting to do a side-by-side comparison of the Sub Elite with the PPQ SC, but no one had that one. Only saw a couple of Walthers in the show... a Pk380 and a CCP. I h...

Elite SC slide/barrel interchangeability?

So... Early on, Zeda posted some photos of the SC. One was of the SC grip with the SFx slide installed. https://i.ibb.co/rbY9Dss/IMG-20190702-123630.jpg Has anyone tried this combination and can confirm if it works? I really like the idea of a sub-compact with a longer barrel than the typical short ...

Re: Reliable 22lr Pistol?

Well.... That would be the Phoenix Arms HP22. Fantastically reliable. After a few hundred rounds, the action will start to get sticky. A quick cleaning and back to 100%. Only issues are bad primers on bulk pack Federal; good dimple, but no bang. It's a serious pain to tear down, but for the most par...

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

The grip texture is fairly aggressive but not nearly as crazy as the new M&P texture. S&W got a little carried away with those - at least they didn’t stamp “Grip Zone” in it like Springfield. :lol: This=true I bought the Shield 45, which was first to get the crazy M2 grip texture. Not a fan of it o...

Re: What's a good home defense 9MM round?

I'm a big fan of anything Gold Dot, and Winchester PDX1. These performed very well in some limited non-scientific testing I performed several years ago (water jug and wet phone book).

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

I bought a $199 G2C in late 2018. Still had the annoying trigger catch from the blade safety. Was able to polish it out slightly; not as bad now, but still annoying. I don't like the hyper-aggressive group texturing so I sanded it down slightly, to tone it down a bit. Carrying concealed, wanted to m...

Re: Elite SC Hard To Find Locally

I usually see a handful of TP9/SFx locally,
rarely an Elite, but have only seen a single Sub-Elite, and that was at a local guy show about two weeks after they launched. Granted, I've been laying low lately and haven't been out looking much.

Re: What's on your "must have" buy list for 2020?

That ten-foot five-inch pistol upper is going to be a sight to see! My current list I'd like to fill before November is a 10" .300 Blackout upper for an AR pistol build, and a subcompact double-stack 9mm pistol for carry. Walther PPQ SC or Sub-Elite. I've got plenty more on my list, but that's top p...

Re: Looking for a Conceal carry gun. Help!

It's going to strictly be a personal preference. In my case (although I don't own it) the PPQ SC would be my first preference, followed by the Elite SC. I carry OWB because IWB doesn't work for me at all. The double-stack sub-compact grip fits my hands the best, and the PPQ ergonomics works well for...

Re: Brand New TP9SFX - A DOZEN malfunctions out of 100 rounds

Clean it, lube it, and shoot a couple of boxes of NATO 124. My SFx was just like yours when new. A box or two of WWB 124 NATO later, it shoots great. Shoots cheap 115 bulk pack great, with no more failures.

Re: Inter dynamic KG-99

I had a Intratec AB10, bought new just before they went under. Went bang every time. Accuracy, not much. Sold it for twice what I paid. Never looked back. Was weird. I could drop an unfired 9mm bullet through the barrel, and it would fall through without engaging the rifling. Probably explained why ...

Re: Sub-Elite size comparison

I was looking at the SR9c as a CC piece a while back, but the ergonomics did not work for me. Only handled it once so far, but the SC feels much better in the hand. Loved the size though...

FYI, for anyone who is interested, the Handgunhero visual comparison site has the Sub Elite added to their listing:
