  1. I ended up getting a FNS 9C yesterday. I can pick it up Thursday. Finally decided on what I was doing after hours of YouTube and testing my full size guns at home. While i probably could have concealed my XD, it was just to thick for me to be comfortable with. The 9 C is small enough and slim enough, I won't have to many concerns about printing. And it comes with 2 extra mags. On sale for 449, I traded in a gun and ended up paying 85 after tax. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. I think I found a solid replacement for the 1911 or xd carry option. Fingered a VP9, and a couple FN's today and fell in love with the vp9. So I'm going to look for a vp9sk. If I can't get the 9sk, the FNS9 or FNS9C is on my radar. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. Would crossbreed holsters give me the same issue? Or are they a little better in quality and size? For reference, I'm a big guy. 5'10, 285 (trying to work on it). When I carry around the house it's usually a G-code for the xd, or a 1776 leather holster for the 1911. The weight doesn't bother me. But the bulk of the holster does. Edit to add: I love the G-code for its retention, and thumb release hood. I don't like how far it comes off my waist. I like the 1776 for its weight, and snug it fits to my body, but I don't like how far it brings the beaver tail up and into my side when I sit down. That's what fascinates me with the adjustable IWB hook depth. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  4. Just applied for my CCL (Florida is pretty cool guys, trust me) a couple days ago. I'm looking at the alien gear shape shifter 4.0, but they don't have a clear answer on if it can take a full size range officer. Has anyone tried it? Does anyone have any time with a shape shifter 4.0? Thoughts and opinions are appreciated. Also, I'm not married to the idea of carrying my 1911, I also thought about my xd-9. I'm still 50/50 on both. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. So I'm going to be coming back to Jersey for a few days in Feb. When I leave, I'm bringing four rifles back to Florida. I know I need to check them like luggage, bolt out, no ammo in the gun. But is there a limit of firearms I can check? They'll be in two double gun cases, locked down. Would the TSA give me crap about bringing that many? I'll be flying into and out of Philly if that helps. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. I'm right in the track to get bent over by Sunday night. Sustained winds of 60 to 70 mph, gusts up to 150, peaking around 160. I've got enough food to last a bit. 2.5 cases of MRE's, 3 cases water, water filter, alcohol stove. Stuff like that. Most people around me were getting supplies today and yesterday. Publix was cleaned out of most canned goods, and water. Hardly any gas in the area. Luckily I'm going into work around 12:30 (Saturday Sept 9.) And I'll be in a solid hospital. I'm just worried about my family. Sure they'll be in a shelter, but that only does so much good. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. Tomorrow may be to late for a lot of stuff, I'm down here in Lee county and theres no water in the city. Lots of places are expecting shipments tomorrow, but they may not last long. All the sports drinks were starting to run low too. Luckily I'm kinda set on some stuff, so I didn't need much. Just had to finish a kit for work. If this ends of making land fall, I'll be on call with the hospital I'm at until its done.
  8. The way its looking right now, I'll probably be getting hit by this beast. After Harvey everyone down here has been keeping a close eye on it, and thought it would hit us anyway. Hoping for a last minute shift though, but that probably won't happen.
  9. Yeah, it's a bit warm down here. Been about 98 or so with insane humidity. The storms are awesome to watch roll in tho. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  10. Cape Coral, but I shoot at Cecil Webb. Just built a new indoor range/gun store around here. It's really nice, very well lit, and the staff is great. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  11. So, Florida has been very good to me the last few months. Got a new job, making more money, got some things straightend out. So I decided to buy myself something nice. Something I've wanted for a while. I was kicking around the idea of building a 1911, but just couldn't see me finishing it in a timely fashion. So I bought a range officer instead! Finally took it out today after having for a few weeks and burned through 100 rounds of Winchester white box. And it went fast. First time shooting a 1911, or any 45 acp pistol. But I love it! It's accurate and very smooth. Once I got used to the sites, I was punching the 9 and 10 ring constantly. It's addicting. First pic is after I finished up for the day. Burned through 100 rounds of 9mm while I was out too, but a majority of that was done by the 1911. I'm hooked guys, I think I'm in trouble! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  12. Oh man, this is...great. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  13. The videos are interesting but are no where near empirical tests and they even say that. Just butt hurt that the AR did better than the AK, Tavor, M14, and Garand proving it to be the ultimate combat weapon. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  14. So I finally decided on building a 1911. Some parts are going to be difficult, others are going to be stupid easy. I filed my taxes and with my usual return, I'm gonna start buying piece by piece until I get everything I want. I'll be starting a thread and documenting my progress. If I succeed, that's great. If not, then at least you'll know why I'll be changing my screen name to stumpy. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  15. I've had a Vizio tv for about 3 years now and no problems. Granted it's the 26 inch model, but that thing has survived some abuse. I just recently picked up a Sharp 43 inch 4k set. Chose that one because of price and so far it's run great. Once you get anything set up to how you want to run it, they all look great. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
