The Flashbang AVA holster designed for the Boberg XR9-s works OK with the XR45-s but the front sight sticks out of the holster enough to prevent it from being removed. I warmed and reshaped the…Continue

Thanks, that a good idea, I will await the pictures.
I was at the range yesterday with my Shorty Onyx. It's the only firearm I now fire a significant amount of rounds in, so I will get used to it by the time my holster arrives. I still give my Kimber ProCDP a few mags when I'm there too.
I was talking with Robert Locke at Meco Holsters and he seems to really know his stuff, and he really talks to you before he will just make you a holster. I like that type of customer service and interest your customers needs. Arne is like that too.
I think I am going to have to splurge, and get the XR Night Sights. I cannot really use the regular sights, the painted white dots just don't show up. Also, while I think the longer (4.2") barrel is nice, I think it defeats the purpose of the short conceal. I'm debating on getting it, just to use once in a while at the range to see if it betters my target scores, but I don't think the barrel length is the issue.
This really is great firearm to shoot with, it just takes some getting used to. I was using the PMC Bonze 115 FMJ. My aim was off and I had a difficult time getting the shot to go where I wanted it to go( small target, instead of a body target). The recoil wasn't bad, so I bought a box of the Liberty ammo you advised about, as it was only $14,00 for a box of 20. It had almost no recoil compared to the PMC. I gonna by 500 or 1000 rounds as soon as I see a better deal. I'm trying to figure out how Arne got the gun to eject the casing the way it does, it's insane the speed it flies at. Several people commented, positively. One guy advised me I was loading the mag wrong, i had to show him, and he was very interested in the gun.
The other problem is that, I wear no-line bifocals and when I focus on the sight, the target is fuzzy and vice versa. So I'm going to take a few private lessons with the NRA instructor who gave me my CCW courses. In Illinois I was application 67,129. Not very many people have applied for it, but I digress. I am going to take some refreshers on getting my stance right, my aiming, and really getting a good grip on the Shorty as it is short, my grip may not be the best. I want to be prepared for trouble, properly. Shorty is not a competition pistol, but getting it right, is better than wrong when it counts. Plus he is gonna help me with proper pocket draw. I can't do IWB as I never untuck my shirts, but I may get one anyway for those times when I will alway have a sweater or jacket on.
Did I ever mention that the shop I purchased it at, was not a Boberg dealer (never heard of them), but they became one at my request and I was their first sale. I let them display mine for a week before I picked it up( 'cuz they gave me such god service), and now they have lots of interest. Their promotional materials are on the way from Arne's sales guy. There is one other Boberg dealer by me but I don't like the way they do business. They are the only two in Illinois.
If you have any shooting tip for the weaver or isosceles or just shooting with the Shorty, Im open to suggestions.
