    I'm not here to argue, this is a serious question. Are we already kindof at that point when people are running Shadows instead of their P07s or 75 Compacts, Q5 SFs instead of their PPQs, Legions...

    I've really enjoyed this thread, and I'm going to try tweaking some things based on it. I don't know that I'll switch entirely to thumb under right up until firing - with the high grip I posted about...

    I do think this is a good idea, but I question whether it works for 1911/2011s absent some exceptions. Requiring a firing pin block is basically saying that every 1911 in SS has to be a Colt,...

    Iím a little perplexed at the idea that making USPSA more friendly to timmies, more aligned with EDC training, or however else we put it, is a problem, much less drifting the sport away from its...

    I think PHLster may be about to sell a lot more OWB Floodlights.

    Correct. My post was an admittedly more-snarky-than-necessary response to Cheby's suggestion that they should not be.

    Apologies if something screwy tech wise is going on with the thread and I'm...

    So assuming iron sights and the same caliber, someone with a $5000, 55oz, comped 2011 style gun, with too many pointy things coming off of it for anyone to reasonably carry concealed, designed and...

    Oh, perfect! I was dreading being "that guy" and registering as L10 (minor) to shoot my 9mm 1911 using my carry gear. Now I can just deal with the disadvantage of shooting minor in SS... or I could...

    Not too much of an update as I haven't been to the range since fall. In addition to ammo supply (I have plenty for now but I'm careful to only pick days that will be productive "good" range days so...

    This, except for one potential caveat, at least in my view. If the 19 will allow you to carry a gun in all the situations where you can and want to carry, get it. If an LCR or other small gun would...

    Thanks, I knew basically none of that.

    And I'm eager to compare a Shield EZ and the kind of pistols I know are the right size, as soon as my LGS has things besides obscure Euro pistols in stock....

    I did mean LCP, thanks. I was aware of the .32 NAA barrels but I didn't know they did .32 ACP. Do the .380 mags feed .32?

    I need to handle a Shield EZ and see if it would be the right size - it...

    I will add that I'm in the same boat as, apparently, a lot of others when it comes to switching small guns more often, even though mine are still 99% belt-carried instead of pocket, possibly under...

    Yeah it works so far with two Kimbers and an Ed Brown that all have levers that are very long but thin, not extending much past the grips width-wise. I'm sure I'd have more of an issue with a wide...

    No problem.

    I have pretty large hands. Not Steve Fisher large but bigger than average. If I bring my support hand low enough to leave my right thumb on the safety and still maintain a thumbs...

    Good to know, I'll prioritize getting a set soon, before what is presumably new old stock dries up.

    Yep, I've thought of that and even worried a bit about it, but so far it hasn't happened. I'll have to take a close look at my grip to see if I can pinpoint a reason why. It may be that my support...
  19. A major motivation for selling the pistol I most...

    A major motivation for selling the pistol I most recently let go of was that I could get rid of a bunch of holsters that only fit the one gun. My holster collection is tidier than it's ever been.

    I'm a noob so I'm mostly here to read (this and the original split off safety thread are very helpful), but this is me as well. I use thumb under more in the context of administrative handling -...

    03RN and NPV, have you ordered new Herrett's grips recently, or are you finding them used? Googling suggests that they closed in early 2020, though their 2004 website is still up. That could be wrong...

    Similar to what others have said - progressive learning both in terms of skill development and understanding gear options. My most recent switch was inspired by getting my AIWB holsters to where they...

    I think Tony mentioned in a thread on K6 kydex that JM is working up holsters for the Kimbers and the new Colts, and I think the time estimate was in weeks.
