I’ll admit, when I was asked to compare the Gen4 Glock 19 and the Canik TP9SF Elite in the context of “EDC” guns I didn’t expect any surprises. I mean the G19 seems to be the standard right? So I went into the test thinking “meh, a bad day at the range is better than a good day at work.” I ran 500 rounds through each of the pistols and used them as my EDC for three days each. Now 500 rounds is not a comprehensive review of reliability or long term function, but it is just enough to get a good feel for a pistol.
The ammunition for the test was Freedom Munitions 115 grain 9mm. For accuracy testing on the range I used standard b8 targets as well as Haley Strategic 4 dot zeroing targets, and finally I rounded it all out with some 5×8 TacStrike steels.
