    A worthwhile experiment if you got it for only $150. Please post results. I'd stick to carrying that Taurus 85, though.

    The Turks/Ottomans have a long, proud(well not always proud) military history. They won't use junk.

    I refer to the standard disclaimer for all military hardware:

    " Always remember your equipment was made by the lowest bidder".

    Many armies have first rate soldiers and second rate equipment. Or the other way around. The two factors have little correlation.

    Fine, but the Turks no more than anyone else, and they still don't use junk.

    They used some great Mauser rifles for a long time, and the company making this pistol made a good version of the PPK for their police use.

    Turkey also makes some very nice ou shotguns.

    That's what I was thinking. I have a Turkish mauser and it's great.

    The first vehicles normally on the scene of a crime are ambulances and police cruisers. If you are armed you have a chance to decide who gets transported in which vehicle, if you are not armed then that decision is made for you.

    Be prepared, because someone else already is and no one knows their intent except them.
