I am confused about what should I buy as a 2nd owned handgun. I am between an Hk vp9l or canik sfx. anyone has these two handguns and can give some pros and cons? thx
Buddy has the HK I have the Canik. Both great guns. I prefer the Canik especially with the red dot package, and the price is better. My Canik is now my EDC all his HK handguns are range queens.

Canik is light, accurate, the main downside is if it's a carry gun your going to probably have to go up a shirt size depending on your frame because of the 5.3" barrel.

They're both great shooting. I personally went with the Canik over the price point and because of the red dot package. Either way you'll be happy

I have neither.. but If I was looking for a 'do all' handgun.. it would be a 3" ruger sp101 in 327 fed mag or a 4" 357 magnum... maker of choice..

The power range of 327 overlaps 357. Both the 327 and 357 eat plenty of ammo types 357 eats 357, 38+p and 38spl. 327 fed eats 32 acp, 32 short and long, 32H&r and 327 fed.

Plenty for protection.. and easy to plink. IE.. shoot 38 swc for plinking.. and any 32 you can find.. but then carry full house loads for protection.

I like this answer.

It often makes since to have a second handgun in the same caliber as the first. If one is for CC then maybe the other could be a larger mdl that has more uses or for open carry or visa versa. Then again if the first one you have is a 22lr or a 500sw then something in the middle may make more sense like a 38/9mm/357/40 etc... If your first one does all you want then getting another just like it might be a good choice.

If your buying it get what you want - only you can answer that question.

What do you consider "do all?" That could be a pretty tall order, kinda like a "do all" rifle. Asking one tool to do everything seldom works.
Just what I was thinking.

Also, is this going to be another TFF 1 post wonder?

And its not wise to shoot a brown bear with a 22 or birdshot either unless you just really want to get its attention.
I like to hunt grizzly bears after skinning a whole bunch of rabbits and then I am their bait. Works well, most of the time, except for that last time. Oh well, I didn't need that arm, or the eye, or my ear. We have extra's ya know.

You do know that if you put 2-guns together they tend to multiply exponentially right before your eyes. Most of us here all started out with one. Soon we needed a small gun safe, then a larger one & so it goes. This is just a warning & the last one you'll get.
