    Understood - If ever you get a Brit on here that says they like guns, and gets actively involved in any discussions - they're probably a nutter who should be reported.

    I have a Glock19 kinda looking for a better holster for carry, or maybe a different gun, as summer is getting closer and closer

    I have a tough time with holsters since I usually wear tucked-in shirts. Been researching Urban Carry holsters. Pricey, but look very nice.

    Not sure I agree with your assessment as I worked several years with a dozen, or so, Brits (in Berlin) who were very actively involved in shooting and (in general) gun ownership. I guess they all must have been nuts though since they said were so educated, talented and calm folks just doing exceptional work at cutting edge turbine compressor (LP and HP) design and testing.

    Now don't get me started about Italians chatting about espresso/pizza or French that go on about bread making/fois gras - those folks scare the living daylights out of me.

    If you haven't already, check out StealthGearUSA (mentioned on a prior page). I'll probably never use another brand again after trying these. YMMV

    The addiction is real. I've been spending roughly $100 a week, yikeals, but totally worth it!! Such an amazing stress reliever/entertaining.

    Those ought to keep you going for awhile for some fun. Those look like lead coated cast bullets . They should keep the leading at bay and shoot well.

    Space aliens! Space aliens!

    They must have been IN THE KITCHEN last night, look at what they left on the cutting board!!!

    -----------

    Herself likes what I call "space guns". So do artistic directors on video shoots, if it's an especially futuristic, scary and black gun, they LOVE it (unless they're trying to portray hunters/hicks with guns, if you watch "In Search of Bigfoot", you'll see a couple of rifles I have killed deer with).

    This pistol was ordered, paid for and the paperwork for the integral suppressor filed 11 MONTHS AGO. BATF finally got around to looking at the paperwork and approving this last week.

    At the factory, they test fire these. All well and good, they should do that. THE ****ERS DIDN'T CLEAN THE SUPPRESSOR AFTER THAT, just shipped it to the retailer, who held it in a vault for 11 months.

    Of course, we wanted to strip it down and look things over, learn how it works and generally oogle at it right away, with the storm last night, we aren't going to have time to hit our range for another week.

    The two long bolts that hold the suppressor together, which are INSIDE the suppressor chamber & exposed to gas, fouling and heat? One of them is frozen, thanks to that long wait in fouled condition.

    http://www.kanolabs.com//penLub.htm...zchdyjNrWXY-LtCSCXJIVxfFDwEQK8jhoC7h4QAvD_BwE

    Soak the threaded end we can reach in "Kroil", tap on the bolt head to vibrate the parts and help the Kroil creep into the threads, wait, repeat. After a while, this USUALLY will let you get a stuck bolt out of a gun, engine or whatever without stripping the head, needing to drill fastener head out & etc. Sometimes takes a couple of days. Hasn't worked in the first 12 hours now, try again tonight.

    This purchase/paperwork event has been a frustrating experience that just keeps on giving.

    Oops! I wrangled guns on "Bigfoot Captured", NOT "In Search of Bigfoot"... NEITHER is in any way worth your time, be warned.

    I had the experience of teaching a number of city people what poison ivy looks like during that gig. And of schedenfreud when some of the cast & crew were too cool to listen to my advice.

    Gun snugglers are worse than vegans :D It seems these proclivities share the improbable likeness that they are germane to any conversation.

    But vegans ARE "very germane" to conversations on a chef's knife forum, they are valuable protein resources!

    20180203_102116.jpg

    And a well snuggled gun is the BEST way to invite them to dinner...

    Really liking these grips. Slim g10 golfball.

    Replaced slide stop with a correct size one (Wilson bulletproof semi extended) and everything works good again, except for one magazine. The chip McCormick still doesn't lock the slide on last round and is also difficult to remove. Should I just call it a loss and replace with one that I know works well in my gun? which is a shame cause I find these the easiest to load bullets into.

    I had bought this after i bought my first CZ 97 BD (45 Cal) . I Loved that so much i bought a CZ SP01 tactical and had it shipped directly to Cajun Gun Works in Louisiana for a custom trigger Job! I also have a CZ 75 D PCR Compact i guess you could say i have a problem!
    CZ makes great handguns not so much shotguns and rifles.

    Best 45 magazines I’ve used are Wilson’s 7 round - ultra reliable and a pleasure to load.
