    Anyone with Canik TP9SF experience?

    Looking at getting one of these Turk made pistols, seem to have good reviews online. Anyone on the forum own one?

    My advice for what its worth
    .
    If you want it as a curio to shoot and show people "hey have a look at this..." then buy it.

    If you are new to pistol shooting and have a limited budget, and are never going to compete, buy it.

    If you are new to shooting and want to be semi competitive at least , then follow the herd and get what everyone else is using, other people will then be able to advise you on a whole array of things from reloading for it to where to buy the best holster / mag holders / belts / sights / springs, and other expendables.

    Unless the top shooters in the US switch to this gun ( any gun really ) then resale will be difficult ( everyone will be buying CZ or 1911 clones still )

    Thanks John,

    I will not be competition shooting, just plinking and probably fit into the poor bracket, but have done enough pistol shooting to know what I want out of a handgun.

    Value for money. People still want silly money for second hand guns with unknown round counts. This model was a good price, came with some nice accessories and after watching 20+ YouTube reviews I decided to go for it. At $695, I don't really care about re-sale.

    Got the Canik from Arsenal NZ, who were quick and easy to deal with.

    After comparing the Canik to a Beretta 92, a Glock 17 & my bro's Walther PPQ, there doesn't seem to be much in it as far as quality, but time will tell.

    Next job is to try her out with a few different breeds of ammo.

    Why on earth would anyone in this country buy a striker fired 9mm pistol that's not even on the IPSC Production Division List?

    To shoot Standard minor?

    The Op did say he wasn't into competition. I have a couple guns that I would never compete with. (hardly competitive with what I use now) Just fun guns. Will likely get a few more when I can afford it. I would like to get what I use as a carry but they cost a bit more than any good production gun.

    We're you at the NI ipsc Champs held just recently?
    A few of us forum members that were there, were were discussing how we were genuinely wanting to meet you.

    We all agreed that you would be a likable fella, face to face.

    The topic of what your possible vocation is, come up with some doozies I admit.

    If you are going to the SI champs in Dunedin come over and say hello. A couple of us will be in the standard squad.
    It would be good to put another face to a forum member.

    Well if you have a pistol range a few steps out your back porch- you end up shooting for different reasons to most... like for pure enjoyment and the love of good firearms...
    it's not a such a big deal to go shooting- much like having a cup of tea or reading a book.

    Heck, I'm buying a CZ P10C as soon as they're in NZ just coz I want the fun of shooting it. Good enough reason I reckon.
