Greetings! OG here with experience with many different guns - I've owned Glocks, S&Ws, XDs, Berettas, BHPs, Para Ordnance, Colts, Rugers, Sigs, and a few more that I can't remember! Over 150 different guns at one time or another. Most of them after I moved from NY to Florida. Most of them went away when I moved back to NY . . . then I moved back to FL and now out to AZ. At one time I was a CWP instructor during my time in Florida and have worked at a couple of LGS. A few years ago I came across the Canik line but never had much interest in them. I was too busy narrowing down my collection to "good guns." Beretta LTT, Colt Gunsite CCO, Ruger MkIII Hunter, etc. After moving to AZ, I stumbled on a little pawn shop doing a "bang up job" with pricing and availability. I spotted a new Rival in the case and was intrigued especially after feeling the trigger pull and reset. A little research and "BOOM!" - I ordered a METE SFT package with the Mecanik 01 red dot for a tad under $600. The price was half the deal and the 3 free mag rebate was the other half !! I'm still waiting for them . . . anyway I've only had it for a couple weeks and so far I am very impressed. Now looking for a better holster than the one that came with it.
