Another Newbie!

Post by Daveco » Thu Jun 06, 2019 2:00 pm

Hello!
New Guy here from the western end of Kentucky. I traded for a used TP9SF Elite a couple of months ago and am finally getting around to getting some serious trigger time in with it. I was really impressed with it right off the bat, and the more I shoot it the more I like it.
I still love my 1911's, but these things are amazing! All I gotta do now is figure out which model I want to save up for next.... :d

Welcome to the club.......the Elite is one fine shooter- no doubt, love mine.
Which model next? What about a DA/SA model?- the DA is about the same size as the Elite except for an 18 round mag, and a DA/SA trigger. I have that one also- its my favorite striker fired gun- period.
Also Canik makes a hammer fired DA/SA line that is a clone of the CZ pistols. They are imported by Tristar. I have the C-100 and its one of my bestest handguns. Give them a look.

Hi!
I have both the Elite and the DA, and I would highly recommend the DA either for a great range gun, or for the more serious home defense and/or carry purpose. You will be amazed with the reset on the DA when in SA mode! It's another great shooter, and the decocker makes it even more attractive if you want to carry (the single action is a little short for my carry comfort), for range safety, or if you also enjoy shooting DA mode.

Have fun! :-D

Thanks for the welcome! As far as deciding which Canik to buy next, it's sure isn't going to be an easy choice! I'm going to take my time and read about everybody else's experiences for a while yet, and get to know more about all the models. I'm thinking a bigger frame and a longer barrel, and that's as far as I've got.

Longer barrel means SFX or SFL. Both great guns.
