    @Ahnab I read your review and we also discussed the gun at length. I really like the ergos of the TP9 and the decocker is a big plus over the Caracal.
    However, between the two, the Caracal is more proven and Canik have yet to establish themselves in anything other than Cz75 clones. Plus I like the grip and pointability of the Caracal.
    I really want to sing praises for the Canik and I just might buy the Canik to spite all them Caracal lovers (how much poor li'l ol me buying a Canik bugs em depends on how sensitive they are)

    Ok, first off, pray tell how is the Caracal a proven name? I thought, as far as firearms are concerned, a gun truly proves itself on a battlefield (in the hands of a soldier) or in a stressful urban situation (in the case of LEA's). NATO and whatnot tests may be good PR, but for a firearm, it is unproven unless and until it has had it's baptism of fire. BOTH, the TP-9 and the Caracal, are completely unproven. The ONLY proof we have are peoples' opinions and range tests conducted under optimal conditions.

    Anywho, I'm not gonna tell you what to buy and what not to. What ultimately matters is your comfort level with the gun you purchase. Be it the TP-9 or the Caracal, it really doesn't matter what the brand is as long as you're happy with what you've bought.

    Cleaned thread a bit (or a lot ?) off irrelevant posts, will request respectable members to keep their composure & respect others point of view. Having a good gun doesnot give anyone a right to ridicule others for not having one. More over being firearms enthusiasts we love everything that goes bang; I personally take ragging any gun to this extent as a blasphemy

    Aaah Deny Bhai! Just when things were getting interesting! Just kidding, but you're right, there's been way too much fireworks for comfort. Lets save some ammo for late skirmishes!

    Wha!!?? My hard thought posts... Gone!!??

    Anyway..back to topic.

    Rechecked the Canik today in terms of a carry. Didn't have much time coz the people were in some sort of hurry ... God knows where they wanted to go at 6:30 in the evening ...

    Really nice sights and a good pointer. The trigger surprisingly does not seem very spongy for a polymer DA/SA. My experience with Taurus and to some extent even the USP was that I didn't quite like the trigger (love the USP though). The DA pull feels a little less 10lbs. SA is nice and should be about 2.5-3.

    I have mixed feelings about the weight; I don't know if anyone would understand but ... It's a little light. I know..I know...good for CC and all but it's just that I can't seem to get a handle on the balance of the gun. Maybe I needed to play with it a bit more.

    All in all...the TP9 is beginning to look really interesting and I am reeeeaallllyyy close to getting it. I wonder if I can get it at 55k if I don't buy the holsters and stuff :/!?

    Thank you Khan bro. The thought did cross my mind but it's just too far to go and, more importantly, I'm returning an under performing gun so the dealer (unless he agrees to return cash which is unlikely) may need to be the same.

    We were supposed to do an accuracy test and a range review of he TP-9. Even Bilal, Umar Butt and Irfan Shaukat had agreed to be our expert and impartial panel which would conduct the test & review. Unfortunately, Asifkhan762 (whose TP-9 was supposed to be used for the test) was AWOL, so basically nothing happened. We're hoping to get it done next Sunday (fingers crossed).

    Ahnab, have you clarified AsifKhan762, that you guy are not going to conduct a torture test on his TP-9.

    Convince him once again that you guys will fire only 10 rounds max by each expert. 3 experts in total means only 30 rounds.
