Howdy All,

Been shooting a Canik SFx for a few years in IPSC here in Canada, have a Combat Elite en route as we speak! Glad to join and hoping to contribute where I can.

Welcome to the forum!

I also started with the SFx, and use it solely for competition. Then bought the Combat and it eventually became my EDC.

Combat would be lovely for EDC, however I am unable to do so in Canada. We have a few tighter restrictions on pistols in general compared to the US.

Unfortunately not no. We are very restricted on what we can do with Handguns and other "restricted" firearms. AR-15s and similar rifles are all range use only. It is a real mess when it comes to that.

So you can buy Pistol or AR15 but you can use travell them to only Range for shooting? Or you cant buy nothing and you can use them only in range?

Example in Turkey you can buy pistol but you cant carry. Only speacil permit allow you carry. But you can go to shooting range with your pistol. Just you have to apply local police force and get daily travel document from home to shooting range and back. In this travel pistol must be empty and in box.

Looks very nice. Also same price with DPM. But no sale in Europe. Too bad :( I can buy from Turkey or UK. I can see available price in UK

But looks very expensive , i think import taxes.

Howdy.
I'm new to the board, and near Cincinnati

I have not purchased a Canik... yet : ) , but I'm looking and shopping.

One of the things I'm looking for something for is to "max" out the IDPA Compact Carry Division classification...
It seems like the SF Elite will do it other than width...
Without holding one in my hands, I dunno if something on the ambi slide stops can be reduced somehow.

Anyway,
Thanks
