      There are different "holds" for handguns.


      The Six O'Clock hold is also called pie on a stick/head on a stick etc. I prefer the center one - where the rounds shoot impact at the top of the front sight post. With "most" defensive shooting this isn't really a big deal. Besides, you rarely shoot at distances at which your handgun's sights are set. However it will explain why some people shoot certain ways with certain guns.

      Looking at those images I assume all aim points are the center of the target. I do not understand the "pie on a stick" hold at all. Seems unusual to aim no where near your shot point. At 25yrds that would be completely different than 3yrds. Not that there is much aiming required at 3-5yrds. I had always thought that the right image is how all guns were sighted from the factory. Interesting that they are not. That is how I have always aimed any gun I have shot. Maybe that is why I do not hit the center very often. Then again mine dont usually miss down the centerline. Do any manufacturers set their sights up to the right of aim point?

      What range are handgun sights usually set for from the factory?

      You forgot to include the "gangsta" hold

      Anyone here have experience with the SSAR15 slidefire/bump fire stock? From youtube videos it looks like a decent way to have some near class 3 fun without the expense of owning a class 3 firearm.

      Nice! I like that a lot. I've been getting ready to head down the kydex route. I'm thinking I may play around with it on my own though. At the same time however I need a holster for my Christmas glock17 so I may buy one then build later.

      I have a Raven Concealment on the way - thinking they were one of the few to make a PPQ. Then I found my favorite company Kaluban Cloak does make one - so I ordered it, had it six days later.

      Look up Kaluban Cloak on google, they do great work - reasonable price, and crank sh_t out quickly. If you have a Glock I think they even have that on there "ships in a day" list or something. A nice quality kydex piece is worth its weight in gold.

      Nice gangsta hold Elbows. Looks like some of my targets when I was done though.

      Hit the range today with my brand new 92FS and threw a few hundred rounds down to the other end. Not a single problem. Well one problem. I am not very accurate. Have a down left problem even though it does not seem like my trigger pull is wrong. Will have to try some different things next time. Seemed to be much better in the beginning though so I may have just been getting tired and lazy. I will tell you running an entire mag of 15 is much more fun than running my brother's 8 in his 1911.

      Closest I have been is just held a rifle that had one. Did not get to shoot.

      Its quite ugly, if that sort of thing matters to you, and I could not get my head where I like when shouldering it. Seemed well made though, and incredibly simple. Surprised it didn't come out 30 years ago.

      A friend of mine has one...for whatever reason he was getting light primer strikes every 7-8 rounds, traced it to his buffer, replaced it and from there said it worked flawless. One thing though, he switched to a piston upper on that rifle and it quit working with the SSAR, not sure if he ever got it dialed in properly again or not.

      I have the Taurus version of your gun. It's a blast to shoot. It's got a nice weight when the magazine is loaded with 15 and the recoil is minimal and actually quite pleasant.

      I posted it before but this is my Taurus PT92

      Nice! Looks great! I'm looking at a Fobus for my M&P so I can keep my Streamlight on it.

      If you're looking for a good starting point on a kydex holster, take a look at Uncle Mike's. I picked one up for my M&P for around $25 shipped and it has both paddle and belt attachment plates. Took it out and got to spend a good amount of time using it to find what I liked/disliked and from that narrowed my search for what I'm really looking for in a holster. Investment-wise, it's a fraction of the cost of bigger name setups or more specialized ones and you can always resell on forums to other shooters new to holsters/kydex as well.

      Down left (for a right-handed shooter) would be pushing/overcompensating for recoil and slapping the trigger. Only thing I can suggest is really take time and make sure you're grip is right and consistent pull on the trigger; better to take the time to reinforce the good practices than put more rounds downrange with an 'eh' grip. I know after about 80-100rds, 1) my accuracy will drop and I really do have to make sure I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing and 2) the grip will get sweaty.lol. Time to try my hand at stippling. It's probably just that you need to get used to the new gun as well. Good luck and enjoy.

      Taurus TCP PT738

      Thought I was going to get a Ruger LCP as my new carry and ended up with the Taurus. The trigger is superior to the Ruger's.

      You know those keyboard mats that you can get at any office supply store? I had one laying around and I tore the plastic top sheet off to expose the rubber mat underneath.

      The Christmas present I got for myself. Inland M1 Carbine. 8-44 dated. All original. Baby is damn near mint.



      Father got me a Remington 770 in .243WIN. Seems to have a few cheap feeling features, but overall seems to be a pretty damn good rifle. Appears to have a medium or heavy barrel on it, as well... should be good for many, many hundreds of yards. I might post pics later this weekend. I've been sick as a dog the last week... don't feel like doing anything right now.

      I did but it's pretty thick. I prefer the slimmer profile of the LCP/TCP/238/P3AT.
      Pretty much the only reason I'm using this over the Bersa is its slimmer profile.

      I would have preferred a 9MM but was not pleased with any of those that were in my price range.

      Very nice.


      I really like my M1 Carbine, but mine's not all original. It was an impulse buy and I got it for a steal.
      I don't know if you have kids but they are great shooters for kids, ammo prices withstanding.

      Nice rifle. M1 Carbines are awesome. I've got an Inland dated late '43 and my Dad has a Rock-Ola M2. Love 'em to death. The stock on yours looks a bit odd, could be the wood lot I guess and/or camera, but I've never seen a walnut stock so spotted.
