I’ve been trying to get ahold of Caracal since the SHOT show. No dice. In fact, I’ve heard rumors that Caracal’s U.S. distribution deal has gone down in flames. Be that as it may, I reckon this one’s a winner—especially when equipped with the funky front-of-the-gun “speed sights.” That’s the variant with the “rear” sight in the middle of the gun, carved low into the slide. Chris and I considered the system one of the few genuine innovations at SHOT. Which this example doesn’t feature. It’s that gun that I’m chasing. Meanwhile, TTAG doesn’t recommend unholstered armpit carry or doing anything to a handgun that might block the barrel. Just sayin’ . . .
