Question Caracal Kittens

I was looking up these wild cats. They look almost like a house cats but have tufted ears.



But when I searched for "caracal" on Google there was another link there after Wikipedia that I thought may have some good pictures.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caracal

And this is what I found.....
http://www.caracal.ae/

Anyone heard of these weapons? It says a subsidiary of "Tawazun" and the name Merkel is on there too.

This was in the "About Us" section:

If my memory is serving me correctly, I saw a review of that handgun somewhere on line about 6 months ago. The review was not very complimentary about their design or reliability.

Several Youtube videos out now that show it to be very reliable. Also, from what I have been able to discover they were originally built in Turkey but are currently built in either UAE or Germany. Pricing here in the US has been very competitive with Glocks and Springfield's XD (XDm) pistols. Might be worth adding one to my collection.

Centerfire Systems sells them for less than $400. $389 perhaps, just can't remember exact price.

They grow to 40 pounds as I remember. Too big for a house cat.

Way too big for concealed carry.

Yeah but I bet getting one mad or startled would like having a four legged buzz saw go off on you. I had a friend here who had a pet ocelot. After it reached 1 yr old there wasn't a cat or small dog left in the neighborhood. The neighbors made him give it to the zoo.
