My main carry is Ruger SR9c but will switch in the SA XD Mod 2 subcompact. In summer, depending upon what I'm wearing and where I will be, I pocket carry (in pocket holster) a Ruger LCPII.

Really wanting to get a Sig P365 and it will become my #1 carry. My son has one and I really like it. Small, 10-12 rounds, points well for me. Wish the trigger was a little better but it's good enough for carry duty.

Am I the only one who finds it strange that 98% of the respondents to this thread are carrying a non Canik firearm? But yet this is a Canik Forum? Lol

No, not really.... The majority of CCW are smaller than even the Elite... Also many prefer lighter single stacks, or hammer fired or like in my case I prefer a safety that I can engage before holstering my weapon.... There's a distinct difference (at least to me) between a range / hobby / comp gun VS a carry gun....

Even my home defense gun is a hammer fired Tristar T-100.... I don't want a light trigger pull at 3am when I'm startled awake.... But that's just me, your mileage may vary.....

Plus the majority who are into firearms, don't just stay with one brand... There are too many good selections out there not to try them... I started coming here because I got my first Canik a few years back when they were just entering the market and know body knew much about them.. But once you buy one and find out that they are so much better than many others out there (both at the low price point and the expensive guns) that you want to share with others who have found the brand.....

You’re right there are tons of great options out there, but I just figured I’d see a lot more Elites being carried since this is a Canik forum. After all it’s the same size as a G19 which is one of the most widely carried guns there is.

I know of no agency using the glock round, several Texas State agencies issue 357 sigs get choice of glock or sig in some of them federal also uses them. I could have gone to a 40 but grandfathered in did not. My #1 defense round of all

Most of the time I carry a Springfield XDS, but if I go to Walmart, or somewhere like that I carry a TP9SF Elite.

Big Ruger fan. Big bang for the buck, and I'm from Prescott, AZ. From my LCP, SR40C, 1911 commander, I lovem. But, and always a but...
Wanna go CANIK subcompact, so I'm shopping. Love shopping, buying is the hard part. Any suggestions? Tell me what is comfy and practical. Thinkin of doing a vanity plate too. Not so much into vanity, brothers and sisters, but how does "ICANIK" sound? I do believe.......in Canik!

Ok, so, I gotta ask. Why such a large handgun with a such a smaller caliber. I mean, I get a .380. That’s my BUG caliber. But if I were to carry a 1911 styled handgun, I’d think at least a 9mm. Please don’t misunderstand, no offense given, just curious as to your choice.

This 380 is NOT a large / full size 1911. Let me try to show how small it is with some photos next to a full size 1911. I Love how much more smaller & concealable it is. Better shooter than short barreled 9 & 380. 380 HST rounds are very respectable killers.

In the winter months when I wear a jacket or coat I carry a XD mod 2 3.3" 45 auto and in the spring and summer months it's a CZ Rami BD or Sig p938. I had planed on making my new NRA edition Sig p365 with a 12+1 magazine an EDC pistol but it has had a few issues that worry me.

I carry a Glock 43 most of the time. Sometimes I will carry a Sig P239. When carrying the G43 I have 2 mags, each with extensions. I like the deep concealment of the 43 but hate the capacity. I recently purchased the TP9SF Elite SC for possible future carry but there are not enough holster options as of yet.

Today, I'm wearing a Czech hat, a Turkish t shirt (thanks @Janik ), and a Croatian pistol.

God bless the USA.

XDS 3.3 9mm, 8+1, 9 round 2nd mag.
