You may recall that Caracal recalled my once and future everyday carry piece: the most awesome Caracal C 9mm. According to the manufacturer, the Arab-made German designed wunderpistole is not drop safe. It’s been two weeks since I called the company as directed. When I finally got them on the blower the rep told me to PUT THE GUN AWAY and await a box into which I should place the firearm for return, repair and return. When might that be, perchance? “We don’t know.” What exactly’s wrong with the gun? “It’s not drop safe.” Which part’s not up to snuff? “It’s not drop safe.” Given that Caracal maxed-out production of the C (with Quick Sites), I’m not optimistic that the box will be arriving anytime soon. I’ve heard plenty of other horror stories about gunmakers keeping busted guns for months. Mine hasn’t even left yet. I feel your pain.
