Reader Comments of the Week
– FRANK, in response to SIG Carry Guns: What do SAS and SRT Mean?
“I have a Canik TP9V2 which has a decocker. It does have a double action first shot, but an interesting feature is that a short quarter-inch “cock” of the slide resets the striker for a single action first shot. It takes very little effort to move the slide rearward and it eliminates that hard first pull. I don’t know if any of the other Canik 9mm autoloaders share this feature, but I really love this pistol.”
