I don't think I said old people shouldn't carry guns. This individual's hands constantly shake holding a pen, raising a hand, or brandishing a firearm.

To those of you suggesting I help him. I...

My point wasn't to make fun of this man. It is his right to own that gun, but I don't think he's doing anyone any favors by carrying it. I suppose I believe a little bit more in states requiring you...

I was in the exact same position as you about a month ago. To cut to the chase, I purchased a FNX-9 (some minor adjustments to the FNP-9) and it's great. I had a little bit of trouble limp-wristing...

As an actual physicist I feel it's necessary I point a few things out.

First and foremost, force is not mass times velocity. As a new shooter I've done some reading on this to help me pick a carry...

I believe the stance I've been instructed to use is the isosceles stance. My shoulders are square to the target and my arms are both equally extended. I'll take a look at that book and maybe buy it...

So it's more or less a duplicate of the CZ 75? I've read a bit about the CZ 85 being ambi and it seems like some things on the CZ 75 SP-01 are ambi, but I'm not exactly sure what is.
