Anyone have experience with either the MP 2.0 5 inch barrel or a canik tp9sfx? Iím waffling between the two. Iím usually a SW person but like some of the features on the Canik.

Shoot/handle both if you can. Buy the one you like best. Everything I've seen about the Canik has been good.

The Canik is very nice and affordable from what I have heard but after handling a M&P 2.0 I would jump at that. I love the grip texture and feel of the new trigger.

What are you planning on using the guns for? Home defense, competition, carry?

Hard to beat the features of the 2.0 I have one and don't regret buying it for a minute. The triggers just keep getting better as you shoot them and the variations of the grip make it fit everyone.

I agree with the good reports on the 2.0. I played with one yesterday at Academy and it felt very nice. My next pistol will be a 2.0 Compact.

I have had great experience with the three Canik pistols I own. They are an excellently manufactured firearm. Even with that, I'd have a hard time buying a TP9 over the new M&P 2.0. S&W just got so many things right with this one.

I have no experience with the Canik but have a M&P 2.0 5 inch and really like it.

I am biased and I admit that up front. I am 64 years old and after owning/shooting a lot of guns over the years, I have never owned any gun that was more reliable than any of my three Canik's.

Does that mean that I think the TP9 is better? No, but it is an endorsement for you to find what features that you like in each - without worrying about reliability as a deciding factor.
