    Howdy! I live in Texas and work in the oil patch. Just ordered myself an S40A1 pistol today. Should have it by the weekend. Look forward to taking it to the range. Take care all!

    Greetings, Purchased a M40-A1 last February, and finally made it to the range yesterday. Was a bit hesitant on purchasing this pistol because of problems fully explored on this forum. Happy, and relieved to report that the pistol functioned perfectly. Only had time to fire about 50 rounds (I...

    Gentlefolk; I fell in love with the Steyr GB donkey's years ago, and it remains my favorite 9mm, if it were not so hard to clean because of the ported barrel. That nit aside, I was at my LGS the other day, in line waiting for the range line to get me to the checkin, so I looked over the used...

    Hi there, I sent my '05 M40-A1 into Steyr to have them fix the trigger safety not resetting all the time. I also mentioned that I sometimes have brass hit me on top of the head when firing it. They fixed the safety and replaced the extractor and ejector and sent it back to me. They were very...

    I know you forum veterans may get tired of these posts, but I wanted to tell about my first Steyr shooting time today. After driving down to Trussville to buy my new Steyr S9-A1 last week, I finally got down to the range today. After reading all of the wealth of information and posts on this...
  6. Caracal C and F Series
    Interesting story developing about a Caracal C slide fracture and separation during live fire. Thought some Caracal owners may be interested... Original Thread Here. EDIT: The purpose of this post was for informational purposes only, and not intended to dissuade anyone from the Caracal...

    I can honestly say even with practice I could NEVER shoot my Glock this well, I know the more experienced shooters could blow these targets out of the water but for my first time with the pistol I am very happy with the results and it will only get better. I do notice that at 7 yards aiming...

    So I was awoken this afternoon (worked night shift in ED last night) by my twin brother who could not stop RAVING about the Steyr Ma1 40 S&W I made him buy. He went on for minutes and said after the very first shot he was a fan and "in love." I am still waiting for mine to show up by mid...

    Greetings everyone. This is my first post here. Yesterday I took delivery of a brand new PW Arms M9-A1 from Cabelas. Today, I took it out for a test ride and had an odd experience. I'm going to chalk this up to issues with the ammo, but maybe someone here has seen this before. I fired ten...

    Okay here's my Steyr S40 A1 journey. My children ordered a Steyr S40 A1 for Christmas for me on December 21st (What great kids!) It finally arrived on January 23rd. I took to the range on the January 27th. I fired 75 rounds of Federal range & target ammo through it without one hitch. Prior to...

  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    Well I finally found some 9mm luger ammo to shoot out of my steyr that I purchased Sunday. Any one ever shot Armscor USA? It was the only thing I could find that was brass and I figured it couldn't be that bad or better than steel casing.

    So I am still waiting for my Steyr Ma1 40S&W to show up... but it should be here by V-day just in time to impress the wifey.. I mean sneak it into my gun safe without her noticing. So my evil Twin has all of our Steyr goods and received all of the BT's goodies I purchased. So anyhow according...

    ....cold as **** here but I'll be testing it at the outdoor range tomorrow! Joins the FN57 and Walther P22 in the range bag.....Looking forward to learning more about the gun on the forum...

    Greetings, I finally had the opportunity to take my new S40 out for a couple of range trips. The first hundred rounds were reloads, out of which I had 3 FTE's and 2 FTF's. I will rack that up mostly to the reloads as I was also shooting some .38 and .45 which suffered likewise. My experience...

    As a couple of you know, I just recently bought a Steyr S40-A1 last week when I was lucky enough to find just one shop in town that had a Styer and luckily it was just what I was looking for: an S40-A1. But enough chit chat, on to how the Steyr did this weekend! I went to the range Saturday...

    Hi all! I've been a lurker here for about a week trying to learn all I could about these awesome guns and thanks to everyone's input and information they've posted, I went on the hunt just to see if it was a viable option to carry. After calling about every shop in town, I found one that had a...

    Yes, that's about the size of it! 100 rounds, 50 Remington UMC 165 grain JHP, 50 Federal 165 grain FMJ. The gun is brand spankin' new, CWO date code. I was loading one magazine with the UMCs, then I'd shoot one magazine with the Federals, and alternate magazines. First 30-40 rounds were...
  19. The Soap Box
    I don't know if anyone else has seen this but I found it off of Twitter and think it's information all gun owners should read. At the very least it reminds us why we carry and what could happen. And it's good for those times you're talking to a gun control advocate and they tell you no one ever...

    I'll get some video up on this as well. I'll have to get the lighting setup just right with the camera to pick up the black. So, what we've talked about in a few threads here is when you rack the gun to make it live, set the striker/trigger, there is a slight wobble you can have front and back...
