I helped the Economy today!

Just ordered a XTac Elite Carry Comp Professional in 9mm. Not many options to add to this one and pretty much comes with everything. Just changed the rear battle sight out to a night sight square notch. Was lucky they had one on the self.
To bad all the ranges down here are closed.

Always good to add to the US economy. I am sure you will get many years of good service from your 9mm. Find a BLM area, and go there when you receive your new gun.

Thank you,

"BLM" has become one unfortunate abbreviation.

When I see this abbreviation, I always have to think twice. I look at context, and then check to see if the poster is west of the Mississippi, and perhaps lives in a rural area.

Most folks living east of the Mississippi, and especially urban folks, will read your comment as "Find a Black Lives Matter area".

I'll assume you are referring to a "Bureau of Land Management"

Congrats Jerry! Thatís my EDC with a lightweight frame. Iíve carried it every day for almost two years. Youíre gonna love it.

Once itís broken in, try 115 grain +Pís. Lots of gas to work the comp. The front sight barely lifts.

And I just got my X9L broken in with 6500 rounds and felt like an old pair of shoes. Now, I have to start all over again - BLM I had to think twice - LOL.

Very sharp.

I'll bet that front sight won't move much at all under recoil. I'm sure it's going to be a sweet shooing gun.

Got to the range today. This X-Tac Elite comp shoots really well. No sight issues and was dead on at 10 yards. 115 gr ammo. Even shot some 165gr sub-sonic and was like shooting a 22 with no recoil or flip.

Nice shooting Jerry, and very nice gun! Hopefully mine in .38 Super will come in another few weeks. It will be my first "comped" 1911.
