LOL! Yep, I'm waiting for that call from the ATF. The guys at the shop even got a laugh and said to expect it.

Because I couldn't wait, I took the MPX and the Scorp to the range today, just to put a few mags through them. Both of them are extraordinarily fun to shoot. The Scorp is super easy to put on target. BUT, it gets harder once your arms/shoulders start to get tired. Definitely need to get one of those "blades" to be able to somewhat shoulder it.

The MPX, if you're a working professional is probably a better over all duty weapon simply because when your arms get tired, the blade is on it and you can shoulder it. Especially well, mind you, if you've got the sling on insofar as you can use the sling for tension. Very accurate too. The only minor complaint I have is that there is some gas blowback on the MPX. Not bad, but enough to notice once your eyes start to tingle. Nothing that would blur your vision.

For work, the MPX.
For the house, ranch gun, Scorpion. Oh... this damn thing fits VERY well into one of those messenger bags.

I'll do something more in depth this weekend and throw up a video.

Nice! Let me guess you went cheap on holsters and bought Uncle Mike's?

Who are you? What did you do to GPC?

I did however, make a mistake. I got a couple "nice" inside the waistband kydex holsters; and I've determined that I do not like IWB. So I am open to suggestions on holster. And damn straight, no Uncle Mikes!

Thank you! Ordered a OWB holster for the G43. Now, finding one for the CZ 75D is a bit more challenging.

Hit up Litepath he might be able to help you.

Bravos good shit. Any weapon I carry for work/defense is carried in that or a TRUSS system. BBQ guns run in fancy leather.

Concur with getting litepath to make some as well.

Light path, I'm still looking to get you to make some vehicle mounted stuff for mags. Been a litte busy lately. I will hit you up in a week or so.

Choke you know you can put a Shockwake brace on the Scorpion, right?

Yep, sure do. There a bunch of different mount variants, and "blades". I've been trying to decide which one to snatch this evening. I did order upgraded trigger and charging handle, as well as a grip, safety lever, and mag release. I may also get another Sig Romeo red dot to keep on the Scorpion as opposed to switching it back and forth with the MPX.

And I did find a nice holster for the CZ from Alienware Holsters.

I've got litepath holsters for all my pistols and he makes excellent mag Carriers too. Love my owb holster for my HK from him. Love my 556 magazine holster that connects to webbing as well. Plus the customer service of just being able to text a fellow member here.

For my G43 I have an alien gear IWB holster that was super cheap, but has actually held up to almost a year + or near daily carrying. I barely remember it's there at this point. Only issue I've had is check the screws once in a while to make sure they don't back out. I really like their wetsuit material. Keeps the holster from scratching, rubbing.

Only real complaint about the g43 is the lack of capacity. I slapped some Taran tactical +2 magazine extensions on and they really make the pistol fit better in my hand. Accuracy up and capacity up is a win win and they certainly don't make it any less concealable.

The ghost trigger bar to lighten / crisp up the pull is cheap, easy to install yourself..

Okay I've probably gone way over the point of this thread. Congrats you lucky dog!

Did you win the lottery or get a commission check? Bastard. I am sitting here trying to decide whether to go buy the MPX with the money I have saved up now, or hold off and keep saving up for the 1957 Triumph bike that I want. I have a ways to go for the bike though.

The motorcycle will get you killed, the MPX will save your life. Jus sayin....

It's a '57 Triumph TFG. He'll need some new tools to go with it and most days he'll spend time loving-over the bike in the garage.
