I remember now. They don’t work well in a 1911/2011 platform


To clarify: I exclusively use hst as carry ammo, I use whatever I can find that’s cheap for range ammo, including steel and aluminum cased stuff

Did you get a solid backplate for the VP9 yet? I’d be concerned about lint and dust getting into the striker channel

Also, the striker indicator looks like a dog pooping

Now you can’t unsee it

Do you guys keep your casings after going to the range? Haven’t really thought about it till now.

Good advice here

Jeff Mau has an amazing amount of wisdom for a guy that only sells holsters for a living. He has a lot of short tidbits on his Facebook page that’s worth a watch.

With that being said, Tenicor holsters are amazing. You would think a holster is a holster is a holster, but it’s not.
