just need a new holster
I bought the Blade-Tech for comp and added in thumb screws so I can loosen while on the line and tighten when not. I added in the BOSS hanger; biggy difference to the good.

When I feel I'm settled into Production division, I wanna move over into Carry Optics!
I'm shooting USPSA Production with an M&P and the SFx in carry optics for steel. Gives me the time to get used to the optic before I move to carry optics in USPSA.

Carry Optics is a whole other level of fun.

Is that Blade-Tech for your SFx? If so, I looked around at their stuff and didn't see anything for Canik pistols. Sent them an e-mail too and got told they don't make them. I have looked over at Smokey Mountain Concealment though, and I think that's going to be my go to for a SFx holster for competition!

Also, what optic are you running on your SFx? I'm at a toss up right now between a Vortex Venom 3MOA and a Holosun 407C.

Sorry, you are correct, the Blade-Tech was for my M&P.

For the SFx I got mine at Cook's Holsters https://www.cooksholsters.com/competition-holster/

Also, what optic are you running on your SFx? I found the Holosun HS507C on a good sale and bought that. The circle-dot reticle is worth it.

If you search the forum I did a review of the 507C on an SFx.

507C mounted and a view from the fun end of the ship.

When using the optic it's a lot bigger that the picture indicates.

After seeing the 507C field of view I'm now leaning towards a 507C instead of the 407C. Didn't think the circle with a dot was going to be practical, but damn does it look good and I'm sure it helps with those quick target acquisitions when going from target to target....... uuuggghhh more money out the door before I get it! :))

New to this forum. I have just finished my first year of competition.

The club I belong to has about 50 events a year.
I started with falling plate using rim fire pistol, then rim fire rifle both with optics.
Summer had eight speed steel events and six silhouette shooting events(I started the silhouette shooting at the end of the season I wish I had started it sooner).
There is also a plinker style shooting that I attended the last shoot of the year, a fun and unique way to shoot paper targets.

This year I have add a Canik 9 mm and our first falling plate shoot is this Saturday. Unlike the rim fire, I want to keep this center fire gun stock, the steel sights are challenging but I should be able to shoot the steel with it that way. The ranges also has trap and skeet, but I will hold off on those for now.

I shoot USPSA. Got a match coming up this Saturday. We shoot the 1st and 2nd Saturday of the month at the Orange Gun Club in Orange, Texas. I used to shoot IDPA, but quit for personal reasons. Safety being one of the reasons. I don't think they are as safe as our club in USPSA. MHO. Anyway, I am one of the oldest shooters at the matches, and am having the time of my life. I usually finish in the middle of the pack, which is ok with me. I am not as fast as the younger guys. LOL I am 77yrs old and still have a puff left. LOL Yall stay safe. WG 8-)
