Thats what i was thinking. I just used a heat gun on my trigger to straighten it out a bit. I wonder if thats all it does, just traighten it out and provide more comfort for your finger.

Northwoods Comp trigger

What exatly does a Northwoods Comp trigger do? Is it just a higher quality, more comfortable trigger or does it reduce the travel too?

I prefer an ankle holster, but my p11 is a little big for that. Do you have any recommendations for me being that they are so expensive?

Custom night sights

I'm toying with the idea of night sights. It seems that even a cheap set of night sights runs about $80. I'm going to try to make my own by drilling a spare set of sights and inserting a piece of...

Kel Tec is already sending me the replacement parts. If they don't fix the problem, I was already going to send it in. I'm just trying this first. KT has a 2+ month turnaround right now.
