  1. As far a I know, the Deltapoint Micro doesn't fit the original poster's Sig P365X. By the way, I have a Deltapoint Micro on my daily carry (Glock 26) and would prefer a Holosun 507K or (even better after comparing the 2 side by side) the 507C.
  2. Very small house originally built in the 1800's here (< 1/4 the size of Alleycat's Home), but my last power bill was $98. All the lights in the house are LEDs and even that minuscule draw is on automation to cut power usage. I replaced the AC window units and floor space heaters with 2 mini-splits (1 is a 220 unit). I could have used a single multi-head unit but wanted redundancy and the smaller 110 unit can be run off my small dual-fuel generator in a pinch. Just installing the mini splits knocked about 1/3 off my power bill. The house is still a work in (very slow) progress. Eventually I'll be replacing the storm doors and windows for better efficiency.
  3. ZeroTech is a subsidiary backed by TSA Outdoors - (Tasco Sales Australia), which has more than 50 years of experience in the optics industry. They partnered with a well-regarded Chinese manufacturer and gave birth to ZeroTech. They are made and imported out of the same Chinese factory as the Burris Signature HD and Bushnell Match-Pro/Bushnell Forge scope lines (Bushnell Forge is very, very similar to Zerotech Trace 4.5-27x50). The company here in TN is likely just the US distributor.
  4. I have one on my carry pistol (Glock 26). I bought the Deltapoint when they were first released:
  5. Most younger folks don't even know how to read an analog watch/clock.
  6. I'd suggest that the best thing you could do is get out to the range and access your abilities and any limitations. You need to look at items besides just recoil such as mag swaps and racking the slide.
  7. This might be of some help:
  8. Sorta surprised no one has mentioned this on the forums yet, but a few days ago Ruger released the Ruger LC Carbine (in 5.7x28mm): https://ruger.com/products/lcCarbine/models.html I've always said that if someone came out with a reasonably priced 5.7 matched pair, I'd buy them. So a LC Carbine and Ruger-5.7 pistol are on their way.
  9. Eagle Eye is pay by the day, but you can get an annual family membership. Your 7-year old son wouldn't be an issue. Eagle Eye doesn't have a website, but you can call them at: (931) 379-7977 I'd call before heading down to be sure they're open and a match isn't scheduled for the part of the range you want to use.
  10. I don't believe anyone has the mags in stock. They are not even listed on the Sig site yet.
  11. One option for the glock without changing the slide or buying another pistol that's optics ready:
  12. Most of the time when I don't see the dot, if I squeeze a little with the pinky it'll pop into view.
  13. If you need reading glasses, it can be very hard (if not impossible) to see the sights on a pistol without them. While 'Point and shoot' will get you a long way, accuracy at any significant distance requires dot sights (or a scope). I have dot sights on a couple of carry pistols (including my primary), a 10/22 pistol, and a PC Carbine.
  14. Try putting some lemon in the ant moats. Ants usually avoid lemon and orange.
  15. My favorite place to get (very in-depth) reviews for TVs and monitors is: https://www.rtings.com/ Personally, I went from a BenQ dual-monitor setup to a single Hisense 65H9G TV. With 65-inches of display setting arms-length from me, I don't feel the need for more screen real-estate. If I do need additional space, Window multiple desktops (WIN+CTRL+D) gives me a clean display to work with and I can swap back and forth between them (WIN+CTRL+(right or left arrow key)). You can close the additional desktop with WIN+CTRL+F4.
  16. I think you meant Lawrenceburg, TN.
  17. Never been myself, but you might also want to investigate: http://maurycogunclub.com/
  18. For an indoor range, Top Gun is OK. You might also look at Eagle Eye as an outdoor range as it's a bit closer. If you are going to be shooting often, look into an annual membership as it'll save you a considerable amount. Eagle Eye Shooting Complex 9613 Elk Ridge Rd, Mount Pleasant, TN 38474 931-379-7977 If going to Eagle Eye, I suggest calling ahead and making sure there are no events scheduled before driving down.
  19. A friend of mine just asked this morning if a gun site (https://taurususaguns.com/) was legitimate. It looks like a valid site, but bells start ringing when a firearm dealer doesn't show a physical address or phone number anywhere. What really screamed "Scammer" is they only accept Zelle or Cryptocurrency for payment. Always make sure you have a recourse to recover your money from online purchases.
  20. 2 years ago I had in excess of 30 hummingbirds. This year 4.
  21. I carry a Glock 26 with 15-round mag and an X-grip. Why not carry my Glock 19? It's simple. I shoot the G26 better (point and shoot) than the G19. That's likely because I've fired so many more rounds through the G26 that it's more natural to handle. But I've had other people tell me the same thing; they shoot the G26 better than the G19. I do carry a spare 17-round mag on me at all times... also with an X-grip added. The benefit of being able to "pickup" any double stack Glock 9mm mag is nice in thought, but I seriously doubt I'd ever need it. While it may be trivial, I'd bet the shorter slide of the G26 is marginally faster on the draw. I use leather OWB holsters wet molded to fit each individual firearm. I'm a firm believer in as long as it's reliable and gets the job done, carry whatever you shoot best. As a side note, at longer ranges (well beyond point and shoot ranges) I do better with the IWI Masada (and it's green dot Holosun) than the G26 or G19. That's even after putting a Leupold DeltaPoint Micro red dot on the G26.
  22. The binary triggers are fun, but I'm not impressed with the drum mags. You might want to take a look at the HC3R mags: https://hcmags.com/products The mags are capable of 25 rounds. The stripper clips only hold 20. The last 5 you have to load by hand. Still, swapping in 20 rounds is pretty quick with practice and you can leave the stripper clips loaded without worrying about the mag spring.
  23. Ammo should be put in the "Gear Classifieds" section of the forum.
  24. The SUB-CQB is hard to find... even online. Only 2 vendors showed up in my brief search as having them "in-stock". Please note that I've not bought anything from either vendor, so this is not a recommendation of them: https://store.thegundock.com/product/keltec-sub-cqb-9mm-for-glk19-blk https://whiskeyoutpostmn.com/product/keltec-sub-cqb-9mm-for-glk19-blk I'd check with my preferred local gun shop to see if they can order you one. The local dealer here charges a premium for Class 3 FFL transfers.

    Taurus G3C

    The sights on the G3C are Glock pattern so you have several options. The slide is different and now has front serrations and touch longer. Overall the G3C is slightly bigger and minutely heavier: https://www.handgunhero.com/compare/taurus-g2c-vs-taurus-g3c
