Re: Good morning.....nice day beginning.........

Thanks.....but I'll pass on the baileys. Used to be a real booze comedian.....but one celebratory day... I got too much. Had the shakes for about a week. I no longer have a desire for any of it. However.....if they ever tell us that cigarette smoking ain't bad for you... I'll start back.

Good morning.....nice day beginning.........

Good morning......... 62 on the Bama coast this morning! Man we have had some really nice weather this week. Oh boy...if I could smoke- I'd go out light one up- right now. But I can't......so I ain't. Sitting here having my first cup of coffee- I broke with precedence and bought me a can of "real" c...

Re: New Wheel Gun

Since you are looking at Taurus?.......and if you would consider a blemish or refurb?- look at Kygunco. I saw a video yesterday (can't seem to find it now) where they were unboxing 4 pallets of blems/refurbs- all come with lifetime warranty, and 100% money back including shipping if you turn it down...

Re: Another Newbie!

Welcome to the club.......the Elite is one fine shooter- no doubt, love mine. Which model next? What about a DA/SA model?- the DA is about the same size as the Elite except for an 18 round mag, and a DA/SA trigger. I have that one also- its my favorite striker fired gun- period. Also Canik makes a h...

Re: Got to spend time with the important things in life!

Hadn't shot in a while- recovering form R/C surgery- not used to the trigger-.......now shooting a little low and left? And the answer is?.......... --->->.......... more trigger therapy. If it was just one gun that shot low and left, one might suspect an issue with that gun, but you said- "Now that...

Re: TP9-V2 Sight Question

I can guess?.....and its only a guess.

I would 'suspect' that the sights are set for 25 (or possibly 50?) meters with 124 gr ammo. And the 1/2-3/4" difference you are getting has to do with distance and or bullet weight.
Like I said- just a guess.

Well.........thats not it then?
If you haven't already...let someone else shoot it and see if they get the same results. If so?.......then it may be time to send an email to Century?

Re: shooting high

Yeah, what I was thinking.
I am not familiar with the SFX, but first thought is did you compare that to bench rest?
If it gets much better with shooting from a bench rest....then more than likely you need to change the way you grip the gun.

Re: Changed the grips again on my C-100

No, not Aluminum, but some kind of epoxy/plastic?

Yeah, my old hands have gotten tender over the years, and the rough grips give me fits.

Changed the grips again on my C-100

I didn't like the stock grips on my C-100 so I had previously ordered a set of those white/brown bone looking grips from Cool Hand. They were/are pretty grips- but they were so rough my old hands didn't like them. I even files them down a bit for an improvement, but still not good enough- So.....I s...

Re: Double Action Range Day - V2 and DA

Good shooting there. Bet you had a good time.

But......my DA is better than your DA. I just can't shoot mine as good as you can shoot yours.

Re: Love and hate, life with a Tristar

Hate to hear that........my C-100 is my favorite Canik. However....I doubt mine will ever see 13,000 rounds.
I will definitely keep in mind changing the recoil spring when the count nears 2k.

Re: Practice Ammo
