  1. Hard to beat some of todays sales. Brownells had Shields for 294.00 shipped and S&W is offering 75 dollar rebates Thats a final cost of 219.00 ...I Had to get one and so did two of my friends .. THEN trijicon big dot night XS sights were on Amazon for 59 bucks Christmas in Summertime !
  2. Like the title says, Are you completely happy with your pistol choice? What make pistol and what would you change. Go ahead and tell us what you would design!
  3. When you're wrong, you're wrong... I bought my first M&P back when Smith and Wesson introduced them in 2005. It was my M&P 40 and I still have it. I was shopping for a Glock 23 when the S&W rep who was visiting Guns & Leather handed me one and asked if I had considered their new plastic-fantastic. I left with not only it but also an M&P 40 compact, and soon after added an M&P 9 compact, an M&P 9 full size, an M&P 9 Julie Goloski edition for my wife, an M&P 45 Mid-Size, and an M&P Shield 9mm. To say that I have had my share of M&Ps is maybe a slight understatement and I definitely wouldn't consider myself a Johnny Come Lately to the ownership circle given the timeline. For at least 6-8 years, my M&P 40 was my every day carry but it was eventually replaced with a Glock 19 for reasons that most of us have probably given at one point or another. "For the sake of change" is probably the most honest answer I can give anyone, but I had an assortment of other reasons waiting in the wings if I was pressed on it. Besides, the Glock 19 is arguably a very reliable and functional gun. But so is my M&P 40. Fast forward to late 2016 and the new M&P M2.0 was announced by Smith and Wesson. I admit it. I yawned. I scoffed. I publicly stated that I saw little about it that would motivate me to go back to an M&P 9mm after having had a relatively bad experience with the full-size M&P 9 that I had owned before. I was wrong. Last weekend I had the chance to shoot one. It felt better in the hand thanks to the aggressive stippling that S&W has applied to the frame and palm swells. The beaver tail was gone and suddenly it was even closer in length to my Glock 19 than the previous offerings and it felt better riding inside of my TT Gunleather inside the waistband holster without the frame protrusion digging into my chiseled, well-muscled midsection. The frame was less "flexy" at the front of the slide thanks to the change in design that extended the metal skeleton all the way forward. The front cocking serrations weren't all that big of a deal, but they weren't ridiculously ineffective either. They didn't sway me either way, but they did add a bit of flair to the expanse of boring metal forward of the ejection slot. But the trigger. Damn them, the trigger was better than I anticipated. It was smooth and clean right up to an abrupt wall, then it broke crisply and without grit. The reset was firm, tactile and audible, and the reset travel was maybe 3/16 of an inch from the terminus to reset, measured at the bottom tip of the trigger itself. The reset still isn't as forceful as a Glock 19 with OEM connector and trigger return spring, but it is right on par with the feel of a reset from a Sig P320. It honestly feels better than any Apex'd M&P that I have owned or fired. So what does a guy do when he's as wrong about a firearm as I was? Yep.
  4. Brand new unopened Sig Sauer P250 compact pistol with 2 mags and all factory accessories including locking hard case, padlock with keys, manuals, and factory lubricant pack.This is the excellent modular P250 platform which can be converted to other calibers including .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG just by swapping out the slide assembly and magazine. It can also be converted to subcompact, compact, or full size grip frames just by swapping the grip module out (the most popular compact frame is included). The .22 LR barrel makes this perfect to use for cheap defensive shooting practice and then you can switch over in 2 minutes to carry the same exact gun in a more powerful caliber for personal defense. Also ideal for plinking or target shooting, and great to train new shooters. Stainless anodized slide is easy to takedown for cleaning without tools, and the polymer frame and magazines make it lightweight to carry without the fear of rust or corrosion from rain, sweat, snow, etc.Specifications:- Action: Semi-Automatic Smooth DAO (6.5lbs)- Finish: Stainless Frame Insert/Anodized Alloy Slide- Barrel: 3.9" Match Grade w/ Recessed Crown- Sights: adjustable front and rear- Magazines: 2-10 Round- Grips: Modular Polymer- Weight: 21.2 oz.- Overall Length: 7.2"This is one of my favorite guns, however I have to pay some bills so I am just selling this one which has never been opened, handled, or fired.Cash price is $320 firm, which is an excellent price because they retailed for $415 after tax and transfer, and these are harder to find now. Buyer to meet in Lebanon or surrounding areas, show TN state ID and sign bill of sale.Call or text 615|939_2541 for fastest response, first person to meet with the cash will get the gun.
  5. Brand new unopened Kahr CW9 compact 9mm defense gun. Perfect for carry, target shooting, or vehicle and home defense. Thin and lightweight, yet holds up to 9 rounds with an extended mag.

  6. Man, I'm gonna get beat about the head and shoulders, but... at least I'm able to admit when I'm wrong. Many of you have heard me express my dislike of the M&P series. I now have a .45 Shield on my hip. Wound up trading my trusty Glock 36 in. This feels better, holds one more round, shoots better and more comfortably... ... proceed with the beatings...
  7. Just got a new CZ P-07 and the 2 mags that came with it are the new type that fit the P-07 and P-10c. Ordered some extra mags from CZ and they are the old style mags. Just a heads up.
  8. One of the guns I got recently from an online auction is a Glock 42 .380. I bought it with a couple others because I wanted to try a Glock and the price was really good. Already had a .380 so ammo was already in stock at the house. It came with the box, test fire envelope, lock (wrong keys though..ooops lol), and one mag with Pearce mag grip extension. Looks totally new and was oiled really well. I am guessing was a backup gun maybe but no info from the source as to history. The only issue I have so far is that the slide is HARD to rack. I am not a weak guy and I have to work at it so much that I might not get the slide fully racked the first time. I can rack my other medium to small size semis just fine. Some are almost new and some are pretty worn in. Anyone else have this? Any chance maybe the previous owner swapped a spring out? Maybe all Glocks are this hard until broken in? Never had one before. Thanks in advance for the input.
  9. About two months ago I sent one of my medium Sig P320 Compact grip modules over to Alex Pappadia at SG Armory to have him work it over with his Stage 1 grip package. This package included slightly reshaping and then stippling the frame to my specifications and a very nice undercut to the trigger guard to allow me to really mash it down into my hand the way that I prefer. All in all, I am extremely happy with the way this turned out. Alex did top-notch work. It feels great in the hand; far better than stock. There is definitely a difference between work done by a guy like Alex who knows what he's doing, and a neophyte with a wood burning tool. http://sgarmory.com/ https://www.facebook.com/thesgarmory/ https://www.instagram.com/sg_armory/
  10. I finally found a CZ P-10C at a good price online and snatched it up. While I might have usually gravitated towards an all-black model, this FDE was readily available and it seemed to me that I could use some variety in the palette department as well. Tomorrow will be the maiden voyage with it at the range, but I've been dry-firing the snot out of it and took a moment to black out the rear sight's luminescent dots to provide a more simple sight picture until better irons come along. My impressions so far are: The grip texture is perfect. Anyone who says it's too rough doesn't do any sort of manual labor and needs to harden the heck up. The trigger is phenomenal. Crisp, predictable, and the reset is short, tactile and audible. It feels better than any Glock trigger I have tried yet. The safety lever sits flush with the trigger face when depressed so I clearly don't have one that is going to rub a blister or anything silly like that. The true ambidextrous mag release is excellent, albeit pretty stiff coming new out of the box. I've been repeatedly ejecting an empty mag over and over tonight to loosen it up some. The FDE is an interesting color and changes a bit depending on ambient light. It's darker with more of a grey tinge than most pictures show. It is pretty close in color to Magpul's FDE plastic AR-15 furniture. Anyway, pics. If you right click them and open in a new window, you can see them at a higher resolution.
  11. Anyone know if an ambi safety can be fitted to a base Micro Carry?
  12. If you have one of these in your gun, your trigger sucks.
  13. Hey guys, I'm debating getting a cdp gun for idpa, and am looking at the glock 41 or 21. Any thoughts from someone with cdp experience? I could go the 1911 route but I've got so much glock experience it would be an easy transition (and cheaper)
  14. Lately, I have increasingly more been thinking about either sending a Glock 19 slide off to be milled for a Trijicon RMR, or buying a slide or perhaps even full handgun already equipped with a red dot sight. I would like to hear from those of you who already have gone down this road. I do not have problems sighting with traditional irons. I do, however, love the way my red dots work on my carbines, SBRs and PDWs. I think that I would like a red dot on a handgun equally well. One option is perhaps purchasing another Sig P320C but this time getting the RX model with the Romeo1 sight already installed. What do you guys have? Post pics of your setup, if you want. I'm sure that seeing them would push me over the edge.
  15. Just received my 75B Omega back from David, very pleased with his customer service and looking forward to shooting it tomorrow. My Omega was needing a trip to a qualified gunsmith after having been fixed by a local expert. How one can take 4 months to booger up a hammer and sear as result of replacing a trigger bar spring is beyond comprehension. Contacted CGW in late February, was advised they were taking in no new work until late March / April. David told me he manages the inflow so he and his team can focus on the guns on the bench vs. the backlog of guns on the shelf. Received email from CGW, ready for additional work, if still interested, please contact. Opted for the Pro Package. Process for work order, shipping, etc all handled by CGW, combination of email and phone 8- 10 week promised turn time. Sent mid April, returned in approximately 8 weeks. Received a call from David verbally detailing the work completed and final cost. He replaced the sear, added $9 to my original quote. Credit card by phone for payment. Comparing the trigger action to my SDP from CZC, the Omega trigger is better. It's got to have something to do with geometry... I also think it equates the quality of work put out by David and Angus. Comparing the P01 to the 75B, note the differences in the pics: the upswept beaver tail allows me to get a slightly higher grip. Omega specific, the shape of the trigger is more comfortable for my itchy trigger finger and shorter reset/take up.
  16. Carry permit initially denied today. I suspect that a 40 year old charge for felonious assault that is on my background check that was dismissed by the state without prejudice. I just checked the online site and found the denial. This is the only thing on my record except for a bad check charge in 1977. I plan to appeal if this was the reason for denial. Does the state offer the reason for denial in the letter they send? I suspect that they should.
  17. " Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV™ pistols (including 22/45™ models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the "safe" and "fire" positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), then the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the "fire" position, the pistol may fire at that time.

  18. I've been trying to find a CZ-75 in both local gun stores and online and have had no luck whatsoever other than some rough condition used ones at Bud's in Sevierville. Are they actually in short supply right now or do I just happen to be unlucky?
  19. Anyone have one and have any thoughts? Not sure why it's caught my eye and seems like the only reason to get one would be to SBR it. I have SBR's in 223 and 6.8 so I don't have any reason to get one. Probably just looks cool is why I'm looking at it.
  20. Anybody shot one of these? Cool little AR pistol. The magwell is a module that you change out to use different mags. The one in the video takes glock mags but you can get a different module to take M&P mags and they are working on others.
  21. Anyone played with one. Got one Saturday and ran 250 rounds thru it today. Right fine pistol. Trigger quite a bit like the Beretta APX, good and crisp but not real light. Picked it up from Guns & Leather Hendersonville.
  22. Hi, I rarely post, just lurk a lot and take in the info! I had been looking for a pistol in 9mm or .45 to carry in my hydration pack when riding my dirtbike. Ive got several handguns, but wanted something that wouldn't be too heavy or too nice to get banged around. I picked up a sccy cpx-1 at the Outpost earlier this week for 200 bucks and took it to the range this morning. I put 150 rounds of speer lawman 124 grain and 150 rounds of Remington umc 115 grain through it. It performed perfectly, no jams, no fte's, nothing. It was pie-plate accurate out to 10 yards, which is all I expect from it. Recoil is a little snappy but not bad . ( my 13 yo daughter shot about 50 rounds and didn't complain), I have several other high-end pistols, but this is one that suits my needs perfectly. I guess my reason for this post is Ive read pros and cons, watched videos, etc , but it far exceeded my expectations. If I only had a budget of 200 for a pistol, this would be the one.
  23. I'm gonna buy a pistol upper from PSA, but confused on what length barrel to get.I was going to go with the 10.5 inch,but would maybe a shorter one like the 7.5 or 8.5 inch.Will the shorter barrel lengths function like they are suppose to?Ice read that anything shorter than a 10.5 won't run well.
  24. Just announced, FYI http://www.waltherarms.com/rebate100/ Curious of thoughts about what they offer that compete against S&W's Shield?
  25. Ill start off with saying im not a huge fan of glocks but i recently picked up a 2nd hand unfired gen 3 glock 20sf... bc lets face it its a 10mm at a reasonable price point... i havent wasted any time with the pud load 10mm. I went straight for a pile of underwood 200 gr pills claiming 1250 fps... long story but on to my question. Is a higher poundage recoil spring worth it / needed... went to indoor range bc of rain and it was throwing brass almost straight up landing 3 to 4 lanes over the high dividers and on top of another shooter lol
