    As others have pointed out, neither the P365, G43 (43X/48) or Hellcat have ambi slide releases. If that is a must have for you, I'd look hard at the Gen5 G26 - both for ambi controls and general...

    Yes. I will be VERY surprised if that turns out to be the case, despite Sig's constant, never ending attempts to turn the results of their design and manufacturing issues into "operator errors."

    Having lived in FL for a total of about seven out of the last 56 years (including three years not very far from the site of that robbery), I can say that Pollo Tropical is about the only thing I...

    I'm ashamed to admit that I know several agents in my organization who ONLY load their weapons after arriving on site for required semi-annual qualifications, and lock the guns up in between range...

    I teach Rule 2 as, "Never point your weapon at anything you don't want to shoot;" and Rule 3 as "Keep your finger off the trigger until you've made the conscious decision to fire." Using your...

    Just got shipment notification on a quick ship for G19 and a "moving sale" holster for my CCO - can't WAIT for either to arrive.

    Interestingly, the only white outline tritium I have right now are Harrisons on a couple of 1911s, and those are the sights that seem to be working best across a variety of lighting conditions for me.

    The problem with expanding foam in the walls is it doesn't expand evenly, and can cause issues with drywall bulging/cracking. When we had this problem in our NY house, the answer (not cheap) was...

    My personal experience is similar. I've given up completely on red/orange contrast rings, because in any kind of dim light, they just about disappear. Yellow Ameriglos are much better for my eyes,...

    Contrarily, as a semi-pro instructor, I spend an ENORMOUS amount of time re-training people who are "self taught" who have horrible, dangerous, unsafe habits and perceptions about defensive handgun...

    I've had a Romeo 0, 507K, and Sentinel so far, all mounted on a P365XL. The 0 came on the pistol as a package deal. Hated the "reach into the sight to adjust the brightness" design, hated the build...

    IIRC, the breech face cut and front cocking serrations were first introduced into the production line with the MOS models. Am I mis-remembering?

    I've had all three. I never warmed to either the G43 or G43X - the 43 was too small in my hands, and both grips are too slick, IMHO, for optimal shooting at rapid pace. I have NO idea why GLOCK...

    Sig won the MHS contract exclusively on price per unit. Think about that for a minute - Sig underbid Glock while promising to produce a pistol with double the parts and an extremely more complicated...

    Post upgrade pistols are allegedly drop safe, though the P320 owners manual does (did?) directly state that the pistol might discharge if dropped. Neither is "slam safe" - engagement surfaces...

    I love the Harrison rear. The install was WAY past my basement gunsmithing skill, and the local smith was cussing a blue streak to get it fitted. But, it's solid, the picture is great, and I have...

    My current "hard use" 1911 is a bare bones Springfield Range Officer 5". I'm THIS CLOSE to finishing the 2000 round challenge with it - just a question of getting out from under miserable weather...

    My 5" was an absolute laser - most accurate pistol I've EVER owned or shot. The Mountain gun was "meh" at best in the accuracy department, the trigger was dog poop in a bag.

    Nothing wrong with...

    I didn't get numbness with my 43X, but did have the worst "trigger slap" where the reset would really abuse my trigger finger. Lucky for me, there's always a market for lightly used Glocks...

    No experience with recent Smiths, or 7-shot round guns at all. Having said that, the single finest, most accurate revolver I've ever owned or shot was a 5" 629 that I idiotically sold to fund a...

    My order for 147 blue bullets took well over 120 days to fill - I ordered 3K at the time.

    Luckily, given the scarcity of primers, those 3K bullets are likely to last a LONG time...

    Just an unsolicited reminder - the manual safety on the M18/M17/P320 does NOTHING except lock the trigger's movement. There are multiple lawsuits running right now around pre AND post "upgrade"...
