I am a fan of Turkish pistols, as many of you may have figured out long ago. But there are certain pistols that they make that are not exactly in line with what we American shooters would like to see. The SAR CM9 Gen2 is supposed to be a very refined pistol that can serve reliably as a combat pistol in a duty holster or as a [personal defense pistol. The pistol is supposedly made to pass NATO testing, but does this pistol really live up to it's name of Combat Master?
The Lionheart LH9 I have has been put through hell in my hands. It has endured more than 15,000 rounds in a period of under 2 months. It was not cleaned for 8,000 rounds and saw no spring changes except the one spring that failed right around the 15,000 round mark. That is not too bad. It lasted longer and was pushed harder than any other gun in my collection. I have alot of respect for this pistol. But it was time to get the springs replaced finally and get it checked out.
When a prepper is selecting a food for long term storage and preparation, they typically look to the military for inspiration. They see the military storing MRE's and other shelf stable food items in warehouses for years at a time. The problem is that copying the military in this manner and thinking the MRE's are good for long term sustenance is a dangerous mindset.
My first experience with a gun magnet was when I got one in my Gunner Crate shipment. I really recommend getting the Gunner Crate shipments as a gift or monthly since almost everything is just a terrific value. Anyways, the things the gun magnets are advertised for is something I want to evaluate to see if it truly is as handy as it claims.
When I originally got the Honor Guard, I felt that I was getting a pistol that would change the game for manufacturers of small pistols. The pistol is modular and seemed to have everything I needed in a pistol from the size and the rough grip texture, to the orange paint on the front sight for fast acquisition. But there is one thing that this pistol gives be problems on that I just can not forgive.
I have owned a number of pistols in an attempt to find the perfect pistol for everyday carry. When the S&W M&P Shield first came to the market, it impressed alot of people and became an instant hit. On the other hand, many people figured that the Shield was going to be a flop. It was figured that many other companies already had small, single stack 9mm pistols that were not that popular, so how could this new pistol be any different?
The SAR CM9 is an updated generation of the pistol we called the K2P. The K2P was actually known as the CM9 to Sarsilmaz, but ended up having its' name changed when it was imported. The CM9 Gen2 is supposed to be an upgrade to the original CM9 with a more streamlined design and more attractive aesthetics. I have no experience with the original design, but it would seem that the CM9 Gen2 may have missed a few things or gone overboard in a few of the upgrades and changes.
The SAR9 was a personal purchase that I made almost immediately after SHOT show 2018. The pistol shot well enough at range day, but wasn't anything special, really. I figured that I would get this pistol because it seemed to have promise in being a good Glock alternative.
When you are heading on the range or just chilling out with your firearm, you may be one that likes to have a chamber flag that indicates that your firearm is safe and not loaded. So why not have a chamber flag that is more than just a bland and boring color like yellow or orange?
An ambush is a big action to undertake, no matter the enemy numbers. There are alot of moving parts to this action, though the concept is simple in nature. You must have a crystal clear objective, communications, understand the timing, targets, roles, and have patience when needed while also being able to lay hate on the enemy immediately with great effect.
