  1. What are you thinking?

    Why in the world would you skimp on a piece of life-saving gear ?

    Get a known GOOD gun!

    It's your life, after all....

    +1. I will have to agree here. I do not know much about this gun but what ever gun you decide on don't let the price be the over riding concern. I relize we are not all in the same boat at the same time as far as what we can afford but be sure and get the very best you can afford. Many people will pay high dollar for expencive t.V. computers or what not but flench at paying a little extra for something that their life and the lives of loved ones my depend on. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Skyy CPX-1

    I should be going to shoot my Skyy CPX-1 tonight if all goes well, this will be the first time. I'll post what I think of it afterwards. My friend gave it to me as he didn't like it, so I have nothing invested in it.

    If it shoots great, flawlessly great -- then it might become my wifes carry gun. If not, then I will probably sell it and get her something else.

    Skyy CPX-1 Range Report

    As I mentioned earlier, we went to the range this evening to shoot my FREE cpx-1....

    Not a bad gun actually, it went bang for all 150 rounds we fed it. HOWEVER, the safety is the MOST ANNOYING thing I have witnessed in recent years on any gun. After nearly every shot, I had to push the safety back down before I could fire another. What a terrible, terrible design flaw. I guess i could take the lever off and grind it down on the edge, but I shouldn't have to do that.

    Felt recoil wasn't bad, very managable (even not bad for my wife).

    The recoil spring is a little extreme... the hardest of any handgun that I have... kinda annoying. I can operate it fine, but forget about it for the wife. So much tension, she has a hard time pressing down the slide release. She can do it, but has to struggle with it.

    Trigger pull was what I expected... long and hard. The DAO pull was one of the stoutest I have ever used. With a pull llike that, who needs a darn safety? I might take the lever off the safety by my thumb to alleviate the pressing of it.

    Overall, not bad. We'll see if the wife wants to keep it or move onto something else.

    SCCY CPX-1 Test

    I am the proud owner of a SCCY CPX-1. Had it for about 2 weeks. So far I have fired 180 rounds through it. The gun has performed flawlessly. Went bang every time I pulled the trigger. Ate everything I fed it, Winchester 147gr JHP, 115gr FMJ range ammo, Some Wally World ammo, and even some reloads. Recoil is snappy but you get used to it. I did not experience the problem of the safety engaging although I have read about it in several posts on different sites. Mine is the latest model, Ser#25XXX so maybe the problems reported with the earlier ones have been corrected. I found the trigger to be very smooth for a DOA. Yes it is heavy but very smooth. The slide does stay open on the last round fired and has an adjustable rear sight. Break down is easy. Almost the same as my P3AT. Accuracy is what you would expect from a short barrel and is better than the P3AT. I would not hesitate for a second on carrying this gun in place of my P3AT. Will it replace my Glock 27? NO. But as a summer time carry weapon… maybe. I do feel that after shooting this weapon I would choose it over my P3AT. 9+1 147gr JHP ver 6+1 90gr JHP. Yes it is a bigger than the P3AT but smaller than my Glock 27. Mine came with 2-9 round magazines with fingertip extensions and a child safety lock. Based on my experience with this weapon so far I give it 2 thumbs up. Will try to post some paper scans next time I go to the range.

  8. Great Little Gun

    I have had my CPX-1 for over a year and NEVER had an issue with it. As a matter of fact, I carry it all the time. It feels good, and I know I can depend on it. I guess I've fed it over 200 rounds and never had a problem. (I work all the time and don't gret to shoot that often)
    I think if you're like me, on a tight budget, and cannot afford the expense of a Glock or Kahr or S&W, which I own a Sigma (too big to hide) also, the CPX-1 is a great gun and dependable gun to carry

  9. Bought one for my wife, and she couldn't shoot it, and I thought it was her.... turns out it
    is poorly shaped at the back of the slide where the backstrap meets... very poorly shaped..
    It hurt me to shoot it, and the misfires were annoying...
    I am a retired Police officer, and shoot every week.. I took the weapon, and tried it..
    And I repeat, I didn't like it, the trigger pull (DA) was too long a throw, and hard pull..
    the poorly engineered, back piece, actually hurt after a few rounds, Do what you think
    best, but I got rid of ours almost immediately...
    I went right back to the shop where I bought it, and got my money back...

  10. Thumbs up sccy firearms

    I have owned a few sccy 9mm pistols. I prefer them over Kel-Tec for the follwing reasons.

    1. they come with a second magazine.
    2. the slide and barrel are stainless steel.
    3. they have a safety.
    4. they have a captive recoil spring.
    5. they come with two flat magazine bases. ( if you prefer to change them.)
    6. the price cannot be beaten.
    The guarantee is simple. (anyone, anytime.)

    I wish the company would do some advertising. Word of mouth is good but a page or write-up in a national magazine would do wonders.

  11. I've looked at them locally. $339 which is crazy, I've seen two Keltec P11s recently for $279 in our local shops. I know you can buy them online for $249, but then shipping and FFL transfer fees. If I could get them for $229-249 locally I maybe would try one. I've heard of problems with safety. I think the other bad thing (P11) also, is its double stack you are almost up to Subcompact Glock size and Taurus Mill Pro. The Taurus you can get in major caliber and they are very affortable also. Looks bad that they stole the design from Keltec, and while they were at it stole a company name, which they have now had to change.

    I think its IRONIC that Keltec has had their two worst handguns copied; P11 by Skyy/Sccy, p3at by Ruger LCP. Yet no one has knocked off the PF9 or P32. I carry the PF9, its wonderfull. So thin its so much easier to carry than the P11 or pretty much anything else in a real caliber. P32 b/c its so small, and 32 ammo you can actually find on the shelf, plus close to 380 in performance.
