Your Canik has a safety? TP9 series? Did I miss this earlier?

Please post pictures.
Elite-S?

Actually, it's an Elite Combat with the safety on the trigger guard. You can see it in the photo below. If I recall, he has mentioned something about it being a requirement in Turkey.

I used to have quarter inch thick sheet of plexi I used from time to time in place of the tempered glass. I had pulled it out of a dead flat screen computer monitor of all things. My ex used it for a cutting board for some damn project of her’s and put grooves in it which ruined it for lapping.

Add meguiars plastic polish to the list

If you want stuff on your bench to take care of accessory items, like Kydex and leather holsters, that’s a completely different list of goodies.

But you can get double duty out of some of them. :d

3M wet/dry - edges cleanup on leather and kydex...also for gunsmithing

Metal body Sharpie - writes on ammo bags and other stuff while being one of the best wet forming tools ever devised. You can also use it for edge burnishing. It will turn the metal Sharpie into an entirely cool looking pen in the process and sooner or later, someone will "borrow" it.

Barge cement - the nastiest, stringiest crap ever invented. Unfortunately, you can glue pretty much anything to anything with it so it comes in handy.

Bone Wet former tool - wet forming leather and it's a surprisingly decent letter opener. :lol:

Leather needles...for stitching leather. Grind down the tip and the larger diameter ones become effective punches for removing the takedown lever pin on Caniks.

Resolene - top coat for leather holsters, leather belts, etc. It can be used to avoid a lifetime of polishing dress shoes. It also smells amazing after it has dried on leather.
