    Just got a supply of SHOT SHOW freebies from my brother-in-law. Was surprised, and liked the fact that he picked me up a nice Caracal T-shirt and 2 nice Caracal caps. The only news I have is from a press release they were handing out.

    Caracal's goal is to sell 10,000 pistols annually in the US. Seems kind of a lofty goal, but who knows. I think once they get out, and people know that Caracal is here to stay, they might begin to sell much more. I will say that, after shooting my C, I will be picking up a F when funds allow. So, I guess my 2 counts.

    They said that the company expects to make additional products available in the US before the end of 2012. Could it be a .40 or .357 Sig?

    Yeah, good news for us early owners. But maybe bad news down the road. I believe that when the Caracal takes off, and I believe it will, the pricing will increase.

    I believe I'm going to go and get me a F model on layaway.

    You're probably right about the price. But I have seen them on GunBroker for much more. I can find them at one place locally (Lexington, KY) for $459, either model. And mags are going for 34.99 regardless of the model.

    But they only have like 4 mags left. On Thursday they had 6 extra mags and I bought 2 of them.

    I've heard what wholesale is on the Caracal and if it is correct the guns should be selling for $425-475, if they can do that I believe market share will increase. If they go back to the $550 MAP pricing then they won't be around for long.

    Look at the Walther PPQ, at $500-ish it's selling really well closer to $600 and they just sit on the shelf.
