    The Caniks are great guns at unbelievably low prices for the quality. Hickok45 does a great review of the TP9 as well.

    Not a bad gun. Feels great in the hand. I owned one for a while but ended up selling it for two reasons: First, the trigger was really off-putting to me. It felt like the trigger was all the way back to the wall before it would finally break, and then you had to add some extra force to get it to break. It just was very difficult to know exactly when the pistol was going to fire. Second was the failures I had in the first 150 rounds, several FTF's and one stovepipe.

    Now it may be that I got a bad one. I still think they're nice pistols for the money, but I'd probably have to test a different one before I was convinced.

    We have half a dozen or better floating around our group. They have been great guns for the money from what I've seen. I think the wife has one too.

    The 55 is a good design as well. Despite owning a polymer framed pistol for 20 years, I still wonder when one is going to crack on me...

    I have one that I've put about 2,500 rnds through - cleaned it once.

    Run all sorts of factory loads, and dozens of handloads (a few 'creative' chamberings).

    Zero issues of any kind.
