For many American shooters, if they have heard of the Turkish manufacturer Canik at all, it is because of the company’s popular striker-fired pistol, the TP9. Offering surprising all-around quality and reliability at an extremely affordable price, the TP9 put Canik—and indeed Turkey—on the map when it came to handguns that weren’t merely inexpensive, but actually desirable.
Night-vision devices (NVDs) are increasingly available and affordable. One can find everything from products barely qualifying as toys through military-grade thermal optics at a variety of retailers, at prices ranging from less than $100 (for the toys) to the price of a fairly nice car (for the high-end thermal stuff).
Night-vision devices don’t have to cost as much as a used car. The latest monocular from Bushnell can give you the ability to spot threats in the dark without breaking the bank.
