Title: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: Birds Away on December 07, 2013, 06:36:13 AM
So what's on your list now? I know Christmas is approaching and this can really put a dent in a gun budget, but...this will not last forever. If you are like me, and many are, there is always a next gun. I find this getting more and more difficult as I acquire the guns that I have wanted and get them to where I want them to be. I have been going back on forth on this for awhile. I have a CZ 75 Compact in matte stainless. It has been fully customized by Cajun Gun Works and it has been my EDC ever since. But this model has been discontinued and a part of me thinks I should make her into a safe queen to save the wear and tear. With this in mind I have thought about getting another compact in black and doing all of the same mods and using it for carry and saving the stainless. Then I think, crap I'm 53, what am I saving it for? So I think maybe a CZ 85 combat. They are hard to come by and , of course, very pricey. It wouldn't really fill a niche for me. I could use it as winter carry in a shoulder rig. But I do have guns that already fill that need. Then I think maybe a P07. That would be a great gun to have since my daily carry spends a bit too much time in the car. Can't carry at work so whatever I take with me stays in the car until I get off. I have had a couple P07 and they are nice but don't really blow my skirt up. Cajun is coming out with some aftermarket parts for them in the near future so I will probably keep this one on hold for awhile. I recently got a Smith model 36. I really like the gun but I am concerned about pocket carry because of the hammer. So I was thinking about a hammerless version and came upon the model 40. I didn't know Smiths had grip safeties. Then I did some research and learned they have been doing that for a long while. Anyway, those guns are pricey also. So I guess I will just keep on debating with myself. I would also like a 97B in .45acp. But that too can wait. So, I guess I will post my "current" list. What's yours?

CZ 85 Combat
S&W Model 40 or 49 or 640.
CZ 75 Compact
S&W Model 66 .357.
CZ P07
CZ 82.

Great topic BW!

Most of my recent purchases (Phontom, Rami, & Varment) were not planned - they just happened!
With that said, here is my list in order of importance:
1. SP01 (From CZC or CGW) Purchased April 2014
2. P-09 Purchased February 2014
3. P-07 Extended Barrel Purchased 2014 standard P-07 instead
4. DW Bobtail
5. 97B Purchased June 2014
6. Another 452 UL to keep in a box

I've got my eye on a used CZ 40P. Problem is they want about the same for it as some of the new CZ's. They won't budge, yet. So I guess I'd say I'd like a compact version of my SP-01 or some sort.

Although, that Springfield EMP 9mm sure has my attention!

Just went looking... here's one I'd love to have. CZ COMPACT L Black Manual Safety 9mm.

I just made my wife aware that I haven't gotten a gun in over a year. 

My next gun purchase is most likely going to be a .22 for my boys, but I have a few on my want list:

Torn between a 97B and S&W 625
Really want a 97B in 10mm (CZ should have NEVER posted the prototype video!)

Here is mine

- Defensive pistol course.  Probably the following:
http://badlandstactical.org/courses/defensive-handgun/

- CGW defensive carry package, grips and night sight for CZ75B Compact

These two are at the top of my list right now.  Afterwards I would like to purchase the following:

- Full size CZ75B
- Ruger SP101
- Glock 20 Gen 4

Post by: muggia59 on December 07, 2013, 08:46:00 AM
CZ97 or SAR K245 or Witness45, FN45 or HK45, CZCustom Shadow or SP01 or 75 Omega, Ruger Redhawk 44mag or Taurus 44mag. Beretta CX9 or Keltec S2000 or a HiPoint 9mm carbine. A nice DA 22 revolver (probably a Taurus that wont break the bank). The Bersa Thunder Pro45 has always been intriguing and another 357 lever action would be nice. This could go on and on and on.........Dan Wesson 357 w/multiple barrels..........

Hopefully I can find a 75 Shadow T for a backup to my other one for USPSA next year.  Also wouldn't mind a P-09 for HD.
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: muggia59 on December 07, 2013, 10:09:20 AM
P09 is also nice for the range. Its actually become my favorite gun.
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: CoGT3 on December 07, 2013, 10:51:28 AM
P-09 FDE (or peanut butter as Stuart calls it)
Protek II has been splitting duty for home and carry.  P-09 will get full time home duty.

CGW CZ 97 B "E"
I thought about DW Specialist, but I talked a friend into ordering a B"E" after his wife claimed rights to his Specialist. It only took one magazine to change my mind.  1911 will have to wait for a while. 

Only problem with both will be the wait :(

Saving up for an EDC, hoping to get my hands on a Protek 2 or after I get used to shooting a .45 a DW Eco may be in order?

Oh my Christmas present to myself would be the full P-09 upgrade when schmeky has them ready :D

If no .45, then maybe a SP-01 as a project gun with CGW kits

The niche that's calling to me to be filled is a subcompact pocket pistol.  At this time, the leading candidate is a Beretta 3032 Tomcat, but I could be tempted by a CZ 2075 RAMI.  I fear, though, that a 2075 would prove to be less than ideal, too bulky, for routine pocket carry:

Pistol — Estimated Volume (0.5×L×H×D), in3 — Reduction Relative to CZ 75 Compact
CZ 75 Compact — 26 — 0%
CZ 82 and 83 — 24 — 8%
CZ 2075 RAMI — 20 — 23%
Beretta 3032 Tomcat — 10 — 62%.

I'm confident I could conceal the Beretta in any of my outfits, except my Speedos.  For that, I need something even smaller to fit into a crotch holster:

Post by: rlavallee on December 07, 2013, 12:19:19 PM
I've been checking out small revolvers for a while, wanting something easily concealable and totally reliable for CC. The S&W 638 & 642 look like real possibilities but they are pretty hard to find these days. I was also considering a Taurus Model 85 but am not convinced of their build quality and reliability. I haven't discounted getting a small semiauto though, a 2075 RAMI would be nice but they cost a bit more than I want to spend. I read somebody's post here on this board earlier today and maybe an S&W M&P Shield 9mm is a good option for me too.

I am a CZ fanboy. Went to a FFL to pick up my latest Christmas present, a CZ-82 (thank you, laserdoc!) and saw my first SCCY.

Not much different in size from a CZ-82/83.  For $300 new, might find one in a Christmas stocking near me!

1. Reloading and shooting a Customized Czechmate open class pistol.
 -- Frame reduction for reduced grip size,  weak hand thumb rest
 -- Lowest possible custom frame mount, riding top center,  high endlow profile holo Red dot, 8moa (?)
 -- Appropriate holster and mag pouches

2.  AR 15, 9mm carbine
 -- Flat top, upper and lower (for light) tac rail
 -- irons and high end holo, low mount 6moa (?) red dot
 -- High end adjustable stock (magpul ?)
 -- 4 mags

I have the gp100 6". Sweet shooter, and feels great in the hand. Wife says its top heavy and prefers the 4". That's fine. She can keep the 4". That 6" barrel is a beautiful gun. Definetly a keeper.

Well, I was hoping to get an SP-01 Shadow for HD. Unfortunately, wifey loves my Compact L which was going to be my EDC starting in April when Illinois starts issuing CCLs (hopefully).

I've started seriously looking at the Rami 2075. Little concerned about the thickness.

But I still want the SP-01. And the 97B. And a Dan Wesson bobtail. And. And. And.

Well... right after the holidays I plan to pick up a 75 compact manual safety that a friend of mine is graciously holding for me. After that I'm looking for a nice sks, possibly a glock (not because ii take pretty but because it's highly customizable and I am a tinkerer), and a 97b. If I can acquire all this over the next year then I will be more than happy.

I ruled out the Sig p238 as unnecessary for what it is although I've lusted for one for some time. Also ruled out the Walther ppk .22 .....just not necessary.

I have decided in other realms though that a dw pm9 is a must and a Browning 1911-22 or the A1 with the slightly longer barrel. Too bad about those sights though.

I will be adding a Shadow line compact and 2 tristar P120 series pistols to my lineup. I already have two trigger and hammer kits From Dave at Cajun Gun Works sitting here waiting to go in the P120's. If the Sar K2 in 10 mm hits our shores I will have to get one of those as well. The P120 are supposed to arrive about about the begging of the new year.

The only next gun I know for sure will be a Glock 19. Next after that would be harder to figure out: CZ75 in .40, 1911, Beretta 92fs/M9, Browning Hi Power, CZ83, CZ82, Ruger 22/45, or a Revolver of some sort. I don't even have money for the Glock so everything right now is just wishful thinking.

I've got a canik 55 9mm stingray chrome compact on the way.  I'd also like a tangfolio witness .45 full size. 

I just built an SP-01 with all the bells and whistles and its really nice, although I shot my SP-01 Shadow yesterday at IDPA.

I've also been working on a sig 938.  It's a nice little piece with a terrible trigger.  I put a stainless trigger on it and have been polishing the action and working on the springs.  I've lowered the 9lb trigger to 5.5 and its getting smoother as well.

Hey Googe... ever paid a visit to the burbs??? Man if they allowed deer hunting it would be heaven. Seriously the deer in the forest preserves around Chicago would shock most out of state hunters. You can walk or bike through the woods around here around sunset and pass within 10 to 30 feet of more Bucks and Does then the average hunter will see in a season. Drive down Higgins road past Bussie woods and it's common to see herds of 20 to 35 deer in the clearings just off the road.

Believe it or not I do manage to get outside the city limits from time to time Artist! Parents are in Hinsdale and they have deer walking around in their backyard all the time.SIL is out in St. Charles; ditto.  I used to spend a lot of time in the preserves and your right; they're loaded with deer. Never seen that scary looking rattlesnake though.

One nice thing about western WA — no venomous snakes west of the Cascade crest.  They must not like our winter monsoons.

I bleep near stepped on a prairie rattler in WY on two occasions.  The first time  the snake rattled as my foot was raised and poised to step on him.  I have no idea how I did it, but in mid-stride I made a 180° turn and set a record for the 50-yd dash through the shrub-steppe terrain.  The only reason I stopped was the realization that I might run into another snake.

Next time I find myself in prairie rattler habitat I will have my 75 Compact strapped on my hip and loaded with CCI pest control rounds with 53 gr of #12 shot.

Skookum, that eastern massasauga rattlesnake is one beautiful snake. I'm cool with vipers as long as they aren't sinking their fangs in my leg (or elsewhere) and wouldn't shoot one like a lot of guys unless it posed a serious risk to my family. In other words if he's in his area and not setting up shop in my back yard like a lot of southerners have to deal with on a regular basis. I've never seen any sort of viper in the Chicago area and I was born and raised here. My dad did see a copperhead in downtown Chicago when I was younger and when we would visit relatives in Ohio I did see copperheads, rattlers and water moccasins. I like and respect snakes, they have their place in the world, although I sometimes wonder if they really need that nasty of a venom as some of them possess.

I've seen three of the massasauga rattlesnake here in Michigan and they were all in S.E.MI around the rural Ann Arbor area. One of the Metro parks has signs for to watch out for them. Two of those previously mentioned I found in that metro park. Both were out in the open cut grass getting some rays on a hot summer day.

if CZ ever gets off their behinds and make the 10mm 97 a reality, I'd be all over that

That would be awesome, for sure! :)

Another 10mm would do my just fine   8)
Since I'm not a huge S&W fan, any of their offerings are out, even the 610    :-\  Sadly, you probably couldn't get one if you wanted one.  Smith discontinued the 610 a few years ago.  Used ones are running around $1,100 right now.  I had a line on a used 5", pre-lock 610 and once the guy found out what they were going for decided to keep it.
The DW Titan would be a great choice, if the Price wasn't so astronomical     :o Agreed.  The least expensive double stack option would probably be getting a Para 16-40 and have it reamed to 10mm.  The only other one I can think of is the STI, and you are still looking at $2,500.
BUT, if CZ ever gets off their behinds and make the 10mm 97 a reality, I'd be all over that     ;)

The demand for a 10mm 97B seems to be high, and I think it would sell well in the U.S. market.  CZ's marketing strategy seems to be deciding inhouse what to make and if it sells, make more; if it doesn't sell, stop making it.  They don't seem to be too concerned with outside input from customers or with what's selling in other markets.  If they were, we'd have a 97 Compact and a single stack RAMI, too.

Are 10mm handguns popular in Europe and other markets?  Is ammo available there?  Do the laws favor that caliber?
And, maybe there's the rub.

I didn't realize it but a S&W 442 was my "next gun".  Picked it up last night.  It was posted locally on another forum and the price kept falling.  It finally reached the point that I could no longer resist.  I have wanted a hammerless snubby and this one is very nice.  I had no idea Smith made these in satin nickel.  I thought the 642 was stainless and the 442 were always black.  Shows what I know.  Anyway, sometimes you don't really know what your next gun is.

Indeed! I had every intention of adding another Glock before my last range visit... On that visit I finally reached a breaking point with the ergonomics of that platform. 

I went to the LGS and just held and manipulated every full size service pistol... without any selection bias, for a change.  The CZ-75 was the most memorable and comfortable with the best trigger reach for my hand. I bought it on the spot.

This time I let my hands do the picking instead of being told what was best by the marketing monkeys :)

My "next gun" came as a bit of a surprise simply because I didn't want to get into another caliber hand gun, especially one where ammo cost on average $25.00/50 for ball but an associate had this one sitting in his safe unfired since the mid 80's and thought it time to give it up.

A Colt Government series 70. Not much history on the gun but after stripping,cleaning and oiling, and a box of target rounds through it, I quite impressed and very pleased with my purchase.

Thank you Gentlemen. She's bone stock except for the aftermarket grips and I think I'll resist the urge to modify her as is my habit with my other firearms. This one I think will be left as is. I will, however find some period wooden grips, perhaps with a Colt logo.

No pocket pistol but a cz 83 with no worries. With the p238's history I just don't think I would carry it.

Mine were, to be delivered tomorrow by Buds gun shop, a CZP01 and a Bersa Thunder .380.   Both of these guns I already own one of each.  A CZ75b and a Bersa.  I just got the 2 tone this time.  Not that this is a Bersa site, but bang for buck, it's hard to beat a Bersa 380.  Course.....so are CZ's.

My Uncle had a TS right when they switched form being "IPSC Standard" to "Tactical Sport."  He bought it from CZCustom, and it was amazing.  Best trigger I've seen on any handgun outside of a S&W revolver.  It's really the gun that got me into CZ's.

Light pull and very short reset.  Just need some modified VZ diamondbacks, big magwell
A holster and mag extensions. 

Can't decide whether I want the big magwell or the smaller IPSC version.

Excited about working up a major load for it.  Loaded a few 180 gr Berry's for my buddy's G22.  4.7 n320 @1.135.  Might shoot a few of those and see how they run.

Sorry for the highjack....we now return to your regularly scheduled hopes and dreams

Next gun..

I want to get a nice serviceable .357.  Ruger GP-100 fits the bill in the ones I've handled. 
The main thing is I have a Marlin 1894c in .357/38sp.  Eats ammo, and I love it.  Swimming in .38special in the safe, and I have snubby .38's.  Just would like to fire off some of those .357 mag cartridges with a revolver.

Part of the wait is finance allocation needs.  The primary reason is I am in that silent-awkward, "Honey, I got another gun recently...., but now I'm set.  That may be the last one.." - stage.
I've had a few of those.

Not a bad deal at all, in fact, an incredible deal! I will have to pay much more attention to Joe L's posts about the P-09. I know that I shouldn't clean it very often, right Joe?

Been on a Glock kick lately. Last two purchases were a G33 (new carry gun) and G17 Gen4 (new nightstand gun)

Next planned purchase is a 10mm Glock. Leaning toward the G20 Gen4, but still considering the G29 as I like camping and it would be easier to carry as a wilderness gun than the full framed G20.

After picking up a second 75BD and a Kadet kit as planned, I was surprised to come across a good deal on a tuned up Canik C-100 :)

I have yet to get it to the range but this was my first hands on with what CGW parts can do.  Needless to say the 75BDs will certainly be upgraded now!

My next will likely be a SP-01 Shadow, after I sort out my long gun situation.

Before buying my polished 75B I was also considering an R1 1911. I guess Remington has been out of the handgun game for a while but here lately they appear to be attacking that market with gusto.

Dang DRJ. You are getting 3 new guns. Well, even if you don't buy it, post pictures of that R51, and just out of curiosity, asking price. The P09 is definetly a good buy. Enjoy.

 My dealer is at the show now and promised to get me one ordered.  :) I will post pic's and a review IF I get it. The P09 and 97 are on my short list but I am holding out for a FDE P09.

My P-aught9 in FDE (from the Christmas give-away) either shipped today, or will ship tomorrow, from CZ-USA, so they may be available soon. I thought it would be the end of February until I would have it, but I got an e-mail from CZ-USA that it was ready to ship now.

I probably can't buy more than one this year, but I eventually want to pick up the following:

- P-07 "Duty" in OD green, if they get marked-down for clearance, to make room for the new redesigned P-07's this year.

- Ruger SR-40 as a home defense piece

- A modernized 1911. Not sure which one yet.

- A CZ 97BD... IF CZ-USA ever brings that 10mm slide (and magazines) to market!

And that's not including the bolt-action rifles, shotguns, and AR accessories that I'm itching for!

For the first time I really have no idea.  Now that virtually all of the upgrades are complete on my small stable of guns I find myself without a niche to fill.  This is a very unusual place to find myself.  Oh well, I will just keep shooting a lot and I'm sure some "need" will present itself.

5" grouping head shots at 25 yards is very impressive.......

I own Beretta 92 and the CZ 75 and like them both.  If I get a CZ SP01 I would like to have a decocker but they are scarce and more expensive than the Berettas.....

My next hand gun, if California will still permit it when I have the money saved, will be a CZCustoms CZ75 SP-01 ACCU shadow! In lieu of my standard sp-01. My standard sales for $800 in CA, plus the $600+ to ship and have CZC do a competition legal action job. It just made since, save the few extra hundred bucks, sale the standard, and put it all towards a shadow! It'll be nice to have a shadow in my CZ collection.

Well, I won an auction for one of the aluminum frame Compacts last evening.  I think these are Israeli surplus.  I had been really eyeballing the GP-100s lately.  I have also been folliwing a couple of older P07s on GB.  I'd like to have one of the new models but if you can get a sweet deal on an older one why not?  I have had a couple of them over the last few years and liked them okay.  Now with upgrades available they should be even better.  But now that is on hold while I get this compact up to speed.  I finally got my pre-B mods completed and am now having extractor issues.  So there goes a few more bucks.  So, my gun list...
CZ P07
Ruger GP-100
and I still want a couple 82s or 83s.  Not sure why, just want them.  8)

Yes an aluminum frame 75 compact.  Not a P01 or PCR.  I didn't know they made them until recently.  I guess it was a one time contract with the Israelis.  Anyway, they are starting to show up here as surplus guns.  I have seen seven of them sell on GB lately.  I finally snagged one.

Post by: Joe L on February 24, 2014, 01:50:25 PM
I'm not buying anything else.  I have bought three handguns in the last few months--a new Ruger 22/45, and two P-09s.  And a rail for the GP100.  And ammo.  And parts to fix up the P-09s.  And targets.  And red dot sights for two guns and I need one more. 

Every time I get the itch for another hand gun, I need to step back from the short guns and go shoot the AR-15 and the .308 Savage at 300 yards and get my head screwed back on straight.  Or shoot the pistols at 100 yards.  Maybe try 200?  Nope.  Then I'd want something with a barrel longer than 5" and I'd go buy another pistol.

I don't shoot what I have well enough yet to need another one.  When we get the P-09s rung out, maybe something else.  Until then, I sure am enjoying what I have!

Joe, as forum brethren, I should probably warn you that T/C Contenders and Encore pistols are even more addicting than CZ's!  Especially when you consider that for just a few hundred bucks you can have a completely different cartridge in a completely different configuration.  Almost anything you want from .17 rimfire to 500 S&W on the same frame.  THEN you start getting to where you don't want standard cartridges anymore and only are interested in Wildcats.

Best to stay shooting what you are, my friend.

Same feeling here Joe. I want to get better with what I have. Warning you now. Don't touch a SAR K2 45. Not the same trigger as the P09 out of the box. Maybe better. Maybe not. Different in its own way, and no creep. Im not changing anything on it. Just got back from the range and the P09, the SAR and the Rami were both flawless. Again, I need to learn how to shoot them better. You Joe on the other hand, are the one I aim to be half as accurate as.

They have been hit and miss on there.  The good news is they are averaging between $300-$350 when they do sell.  I think I have seen seven or eight different auctions.  They stand out because they look like they have been drug behind a pickup truck through a gravel pit.

I have a new itch.  This always leads to acquisition in my case.  I have been looking at the Burris Fastfire III.  I think it would be pretty cool mounted on a 75 series that was fully customized.  I don't really want to change my B or my transitional pre-B as they are set up just how I want them.  I am thinking of getting an original Czechoslovakian pre-B as a dedicated host for the red dot.  Unfortunately, I really know very little about these.  I think the rear slide cut is the same as the B model and should work with the adapter.  Anyone see an issue with this?

I have contemplated the same kind of thing but with a P-09 and an RMR...

Before I got into CZs I was on the verge of having the slide milled on one of my Glocks for just such a thing. I recently contacted Mark Housel at L&M Precision Gunworks (http://www.landmprecisiongunworks.com/) (he is well known for this kind of work in the Glock community) and he said he'd not done this to a P-09 yet but was willing to take a look to see how feasible it was.

Once I get a P-09 I will have him do just that :)
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: Birds Away on March 08, 2014, 02:34:43 PM
I'm sure a P-09 with one of those would be pretty cool.  I really am not familiar with these optics enough to know which one to get...or whether to get one at all.  It would just be for the range and I probably don't need another gun taking rounds away from my carry and competition guns.

I probably don't need another gun taking rounds away from my carry and competition guns.

One thing that slows down my acquisitions a bit is the reality check of knowing I won't be happy unless I Cajunize any CZ I get. That bumps a ~$500 gun up almost double including new sights.

Not that I'm complaining... I'm happier with my CZs than I've ever been with the other pistols I've owned.

Absolutely, although recently I have considered trying to find a bargain used one to leave stock for when new shooters try out my group.  It might be nice to allow them to shoot a stock gun to compare to the custom ones.  But yes, I am still awaiting the arrival of my alloy frame milsurp compact I won on GB.  I have had the parts for a week already, lol.

Absolutely, although recently I have considered trying to find a bargain used one to leave stock for when new shooters try out my group.  It might be nice to allow them to shoot a stock gun to compare to the custom ones.

David told me on the phone that I wouldn't believe the difference and, well, you know... I kind of took that as a bit of salesmanship :) I held back on sending my second 75BD in just so I could compare the two side by side and he was right - the difference is tremendous.

I've never really been a trigger snob but his parts are well on their way to making me one!

I am absolutely a trigger snob.  I have tried a few other people's guns.  You know, they try yours and you try theirs.  I just don't really find it enjoyable like I used to.  They don't understand why I would want to invest that much money on a gun and I don't understand what the point is of buying five or six mediocre guns when you could have one or two outstanding ones.  Doesn't make sense to me.

Oh yeah, I totally get that. I have friends that are constantly chasing the hot gun of the month thing and I have been sharing my experiences migrating to CZ hoping they'll see the light, so to speak :)

Just tell them when you buy quality you only squawk once.  And, a quality tuned CZ 75 is a bargain relative to any other I'm familiar with.

Most of the people I talk to are in the Glock crowd and think theirs is as good as you can get right out of the box.  They are close-minded and that's okay with me.  To each his own.  I feel sorry for them never having a gun they could actually fall in love with.

I really need to stop for a while, focus on getting the guns I newly acquired tuned up just how I want and stock up on the necessary accessories for each first.

That said, I've got an itch for a wheel gun that came out of nowhere. I've never really been that excited by them, but lately I feel there's a big hole in my collection without a hand cannon. Not sure which one yet, looking at Ruger GP100 and SW 686 for now.

Unfortunately no.  It's a gun that was on my list but doesn't appear to be on Ruger's website anymore.

The Match Champion looks interesting enough, though.  There's one at my LGS.  I may have to look harder at it next time I'm in there.  :)

I've never had a Glock, never wanted one or even shot one. I decided I should see what the big deal was so I have a used Gen 3 Glock 23 on the way from CDNN. It was $379 listed as very good to excellent. I figure if I don't like it I can trade it off.

I'm pretty impressed with CDNN, I ordered about 4:15pm yesterday and had a Fedex tracking number by 6pm and it did ship. Tracking shows it in Memphis at 11:54 last night. I should have it Wednesday.

I have had a .22 revolver at the top of my list for some time but hadn't decided what one I wanted. I stopped by my LGS today and they had 3 of the contenders in stock. The Ruger Bearcat was nice looking but felt like a toy, the S&W 317 had a nice feel but the fit and finish didn't equate to $750.00 so here is what came home with me.

My safe is completely full and if I bought another, it would have to set on top of another pistol(not liking that) or sit outside the safe or I'd have to buy another safe.
I don't plan on selling any as of now but you never know. I got offered a Sig P229 LE trade in for my P09 but I eventually said no.

So what's on your list now? I know Christmas is approaching and this can really put a dent in a gun budget, but...this will not last forever. If you are like me, and many are, there is always a next gun. I find this getting more and more difficult as I acquire the guns that I have wanted and get them to where I want them to be. I have been going back on forth on this for awhile. I have a CZ 75 Compact in matte stainless. It has been fully customized by Cajun Gun Works and it has been my EDC ever since. But this model has been discontinued and a part of me thinks I should make her into a safe queen to save the wear and tear. With this in mind I have thought about getting another compact in black and doing all of the same mods and using it for carry and saving the stainless. Then I think, crap I'm 53, what am I saving it for? So I think maybe a CZ 85 combat. They are hard to come by and , of course, very pricey. It wouldn't really fill a niche for me. I could use it as winter carry in a shoulder rig. But I do have guns that already fill that need. Then I think maybe a P07. That would be a great gun to have since my daily carry spends a bit too much time in the car. Can't carry at work so whatever I take with me stays in the car until I get off. I have had a couple P07 and they are nice but don't really blow my skirt up. Cajun is coming out with some aftermarket parts for them in the near future so I will probably keep this one on hold for awhile. I recently got a Smith model 36. I really like the gun but I am concerned about pocket carry because of the hammer. So I was thinking about a hammerless version and came upon the model 40. I didn't know Smiths had grip safeties. Then I did some research and learned they have been doing that for a long while. Anyway, those guns are pricey also. So I guess I will just keep on debating with myself. I would also like a 97B in .45acp. But that too can wait. So, I guess I will post my "current" list. What's yours?

CZ 85 Combat
S&W Model 40 or 49 or 640.
CZ 75 Compact
S&W Model 66 .357.
CZ P07
CZ 82.

Late to the party I know ...but I have my eye on a CZ 97B.
Love my CZ 75B in Brushed Stainless and the P-07 started it all.

No new handguns for me.  Got a 22 bolt rifle two weeks ago...then a scope...then trigger parts...it never ends....but all is well.  My biggest decision is "Which P-09 am I going to shoot well today?  Bullseye version or game gun version?" 

No, I'm not going to clean them.

A year ago I didn't know what a Turkish gun was, now I have 2! The only thing left I had on my short list was a SW Shield and I found a deal on one this morning.

I have stopped looking for a CZ40B which means I will find a smoking deal on one and have to buy it. I won't want to but I have this sickness.

After receiving my CGW Pro-Grade CZ P-09, I am definitely thinking about picking up its little brother, the CGW Pro-Grade CZ P-07.  However, I just located a picture of a Beretta 92A1 customized by Wilson Combat and thought, "Man, I need one of those."  I then continued to tell myself, "You know, it would be nice to have one since I used one in the service."  I just wonder what the turn-around time is on the Wilson Combat modification packages that cost approximately $750.  Then, I will need to determine if the Beretta 92A1 customized by Wilson Combat, would be a slicker handgun than CGW Pro-Grade P-07.

Something in .45.   Either a Sig P220, 227 or Witness Elite Match.  Lean towards the Witness... today.

Hard to find a 97 these days.  I've run across 1 (that was over-priced) at the last 3 shows.  First time I've seen a vendor have the Elite Match in 9mm, .40 and 10mm and no .45 today.  Sigs galore of course.

At the prices of the GPs right now is an awesome deal. Having owned the p07 1st gen, and recently the 07/extended barrel... For me I prefer the GP

I went shooting with one of sons today. There is nothing better than shooting with one of your offspring. I just wish I could get my wife interested.
Anyway, I was shooting my P-07. I just can't believe how great it shoots for a compact polymer pistol.
It shoots better than some other manufacturers metal and alloy framed pistols. I might just have to get a P-09 and round out my stable of CZs. Then maybe a Shadow of some kind.
As of now I own a 75BD, PCR, P-01, RAMI BD, P-07 & a 452 Military Trainer in CZs.

Fireman jones,  consider the tactical sport.  I can't tell you how great it is.  The P07 was my favorite before, hands down, but believe me the TS is SWEEEEEET.  Very light trigger, very accurate...

I already (verbally) landed a LC380

A guy had it listed locally. An LC380 with crimson trace laser (not the lasermax version). For 350.00
Since it is not on the California "approved handgun" roster anymore, the only way to buy one is through an in-state face to face transaction (between two commi-residents). In other words, the seller must be a California resident and be present at the LGS to complete the transaction with the buyer.

The seller says he purchased the gun this year. 50 rounds through the pipe. He wants an LC9. That's the reason he said he's sellin'.
I verbally approved we meet tomorrow.

Gun comes with 200 rounds ball ammo, 3 mags and that's it.

Your opinion of the LC380? Never had one.
Good deal? fair? not worth it?

I personally am not impressed with the lc380 or lc9. I have owned an LCP and shot the lc380 and and lc9 and I could not get a good feel for any of them. Though the bigger lc380 was a bit bigger and nicer, I still think its make for a nice pocket pistol. it has some nice features and much better sights than the lcp but I still didn't like the trigger pull, or the general feel of the gun. to each his own though. as far as how its made, they have a nice fit and finish for the price. The crimson trace laser is nicer than the lasermax for sure and that seems like a really good price with all the extras.

Gottmituns:   I like shooting 9mm better, .380 is very snappy. I have a PP and a PPK/S. It is almost like shooting .40, that is probably why the seller is going to the 9mm.

I think you got a good deal.  Let us know how it shoots.  The LC380 has the tilting barrel versus straight blowback.  You will find it sweet to shoot, I think.

Same thing with my Kahr CM9!  That thing had 60 rounds through it.  Maybe.  It was not a pleasure to shoot.  I really did like the trigger on it, but I think a RAMI BD is eventually going to replace it for summer CC.  I have been open carrying all year, so no need for a tiny gun.

Chumley, that Tactical Sport you recommended is big and expensive. I do not shoot in competition. I don't know if I could justify that expense.  I am still thinking of the P-09, Cajunized of course, then maybe an 85 Combat or Shadow, but that is just a thought at this time. Right now I am enjoying my 75 BD that is fully Cajunized.

I live in North Carolina where open carry is firmly protected in out state constitution, and has been upheld by several state supreme court and federal court rulings.  Its awesome. 

I was very hesitant at first, but no one bats an eye at it here.  The only reactions I have ever gotten are a thumbs up or a wink from other pro-2A types.  God Bless the South!

CC is another story entirely.  Some of the counties make it a pain in the but, and its not cheap.  I have a FL non-resident, mainly because I didn't have to take a course, just submit military marksmanship records.  That saved me close to $100.

But I prefer to open carry to combat the insanity in the media over responsible firearms ownership, and I would hope I have encouraged someone just by seeing me carry.  I especially make it a point to open carry when my kids are with me.

You are correct on all counts, it is a little over a half pound heavier....longer overall length and barrel length, bigger mag as well.  Cost is more, but not terribly more after you do the modifications....consider what your total cost was on the 75BD after wood grips and CGW work was.  Probably close to $1000?  I don't shoot in competition, but maybe someday if I have the time, energy and confidence.  Don't think I will be any better than the worst, but I think it would be a good experience.  For now I just love shooting at the range.  If you ever do get a chance to try the TS, let me know what you think.

Back from the range.  Wife came with and shot with me today for Father's Day..her present to me.  She shot her 22 Ruger Single Ten and one shot from the P07.  Didn't like the kick.

Fireman jones, I told you I would compare the tactical sport to the 75 BD, but darnit, I left the 75 bd at home, though I did have the P07 Duty and Rami BD.  The TS is still my favorite. yes, heavier and a VERY light trigger, but it is more accurate and easy to shoot.  I am not saying either of the other two are bad at all. When I got home I took these pictures to compare the 75 to the TS.  Hope it helps.

Thanks for taking the time and taking those pictures. Your 75 BD has checkered front and back straps. Nice.
I enjoy shooting my 75 BD fully Cajunized, from springs to hammer, 85 Compact trigger with the two screws, disco and complete polishing. I guess I really can't do much better for the money.
I'll have to wait till Shoot Straight gets a TS in to handle.

Holding the 75 BD in my hand and describing the difference between it and the TS is easier to describe once you see the pictures.  I would say the TS is at the very limit of my hand size.  The trigger as well.  The 75 is a smaller grip, so more comfortable/natural and the trigger a bit more natural.  Until you see them side by side, one does not appreciate the difference.  On my next trip to the range, I am going to limit it to two handguns, these two.

The (1200fps) Nitro Venom is just too much for those darned lil micies gettin' into the Bird Feed   :o
With an advertised 600 fps @ 10 pumps, I figure with a range of 3 - 10 pumps per Shot, I can dial-in the power needed to dispatch one of the little beggars


Got the new Crosman 1377/99 "Carbine" today (20 June)
Flipped the Rear Sight to the Peep and popped my "Gong" at 20 yards, first Shot out on the Box
I'm lovin' the accuracy of this little number
I have a feeling, I'll be shooting it a lot

For my next handgun, I'm debating on an SR9c or MP9 (still thinking about a Glock 19 though).  If my wife has a say she wants me to get a S&W 686 or a Rossi 357 with the 4" barrel.  No matter what I think it will be a win/win!   ;D

I am quite excited ... I really liked the Canik C-100 I had CGW work over - I just couldn't make peace with the manual safety. I fully expect the PCR to be my favorite for the foreseeable future :)

I wish I could find a 4" .357 revolver that felt natural in my hand. Everything I've tried just feels totally awkward. I guess I'm just not a revolver guy...

For polymer I do like the P-07/P-09 (although the controls feel a little odd to me) but I am also very intrigued by the H&K45 and the FNH FNX-9, both with the combination decocker/safety. I may take the plunge with one or the other at some point just to see if my current aversion to polymer is really leftover dissatisfaction from my Glock/M&P days.

I am trying to decided between an Accu-Shadow with hand fitted match grade barrel from CZC or their CTS in .40.   That decision will pull me from USPSA Production (currently shooting a SP-01 Shadow from CZC) into Limited.   I would guess once I handle a CTS it will be a quick decision.  ;)

I also want a Pro-Tek 1 for carry.  I would also like to have a couple CZ P-01 with tactical light.  One for my car and one for my wife's.  8)

I would love a Commander-sized 9mm 1911 ... but the price tag for a nice (e.g. truly reliable) one is out of my range right now, especially given that I doubt it would bump my current (or forthcoming) carry gun out of my holster. ;)

I'll take a look at them.  I have to confess however I'm not all that impressed with Remington's QC of late.  Are they series 70 configuration?  Forged frame?  ( I know the ruger is not). 

I'd really like to get a Dan Wesson V Bob.  I almost had a trade for one lined up but the guy changes his mind at the last minute.

I have one and it's fullsize brother.  I cannot think of a reason why I would not trust this pistol as it has performed very well every time I've had it to the range.  I have been known to carry this one and the fullsize SR1911, too.

I have the full size SR1911 and love it. I've shot the CMD version a few times and that is definitely on my "Must buy one of these" list. Some of the online dealers have offered really good prices.

Something to note - the SR1911 is a Series 70 configuration.

My last purchase was the "new" CZ P07. I am having a good time getting to know her and have no complaints. At about 90 yards I was getting very close to a soda can with Winchester Ranger 124 gr. ammo, but didn't hit it until I used a buddy's scoped 17 HR rifle. The next purchase on my mind is a S&W Shield 9mm. The Shield (and the P07) knocked the S&W M&P 9c off the top spot after I had a chance to fire one last Wednesday. Besides, the Shield is easier to carry on these hot summer, shorts and a tee  wearing days.  ;)

Thanks Birds. Ever since I purchased a Model 10 from Buds for $243.00 as a police trade-in from Australia. , I have been looking for a S&W .357.
It has taken a few years but I finally found it at the right price! This is even in better shape than the Model 10.
I open carry on my property and immediate area in Western North Carolina and will feel much safer in case I come across large animals.
I don't mind that it is only the K frame since I won't be shooting .357s a lot. I will mainly shoot 38 Specials for target and because of the cost for .357. This will be more of a defensive gun and the Model 10 for target and plinking.

I've always thought cz's were really great guns but never owned one. I'm a pocket pistol freak (especially dao's) and stumbled across the 45 25acp and the 36. for sale the other day on gun b. I Didn't buy it (it was going to be $545 (40 for shipping and $45 ffl plus $450 for the gun) but now I'm hooked and got to have one. Anybody have any search ideas?

Just like Birds Away said - it kinda picked me when. It happened just like the trade for my Sig P226 Scorpion!




Great topic BW!

Most of my recent purchases (Phontom, Rami, & Varment) were not planned - they just happened!
With that said, here is my list in order of importance:
1. SP01 Cajunized
2. P-09 Purchased February 2014
3. P-07 Extended Barrel Purchased 2014 standard P-07 instead
4. DW Bobtail
5. 97B
6. Another 452 UL to keep in a box

Picked up the Grand Power P1 Mk7 (pretty big write up w/lots of pics in General Discussion). Very nice pistol, but I fear that it's trigger is going to make me save up the money and spring for some CGW Mods to my P-07. I love the Omega Trigger system, but the GP trigger is just WOW!!!

I also have a new 2014 P-07 on layaway. Hey FiremanJones, if I can ever get down your way I will let you check out this GP brother. When I am not out working, driving cross country I call Jacksonville home lol.

Time to revise things this is my next purchase picked it up this morning.
Guess I will be selling the blue one.
Got a nice price and decent condition, it had a couple of spots on it.
But it was nothing that a little 320 grit foam sanding pad could not fix.

I polished the action cleaned it up and now I should go play!

I was briefly tempted by the idea of a Beretta 92A1 full-size or compact with Wilson Combat upgrades but in the end I felt like the ergos just weren't there.  Nothing touches CZ for me in that respect!

I thought of getting a Tactical at one point, but they are heavy and bulky almost like a Beretta. I am content with what I now have. Besides my 75BD & P-09 are perfect for me for target shooting. I think the next handgun will be a stainless PCR(if CZ makes one in the future), a stainless 75 BD(if it is ever made) or a stainless revolver.

Given the role of this gun I don't mind a little extra bulk overall. The Beretta, though.... just felt way too big in my hand (and I have big hands) whereas the CZ grip just melts. I found the controls on the Beretta awkward too - I don't have to shift my grip at all on my 75BD but had to fidget a bit to decock and drop mags on the Beretta.

Plus the Beretta just ended up looking weird to me LOL

Now... a matte stainless PCR would be... ooooohhh... ;-)

I felt the same way about the Berettas after I purchased my first CZ, a 75BD. I never liked the position of the decocker.

I've divested myself of all things 9mm with the exception of my P01 and my SP01 Tactical.  I already have the CZ 75 Compact .40 so I guess I need the .40 SP01 Tactical to fill the gap.   ;D   Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I like those pistols a lot. unfortunately.... The last time I shot one I got two little nice cuts on the web of my hand from the slide. I guess I just have to high of a hold for those... and too big of a hand.

My Browning High power give me some nasty hammer bite too... I shot one mag through it and that was it last time I went out.

I applied Miltec 1 with heat and the Miltec lube in the rails.  Had a tough time getting the slide stop back in.  I never field stripped a 1911 style gun with barrel bushing so it was something new to learn or had a gun with barrel lug I think they call it.  I hope to go shoot her tomorrow.  They recommend you clean and relub every 50 rounds for the first 500 rounds. The manual also said to expect jams and such during the break in period.  We will have to see.

Fireman jones, I will take comparison photos tomorrow and post pics of the 75BD, TS and the DW.  I am real interested in comparing the three.
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: Chumley on July 27, 2014, 05:56:55 PM
Just got back from the range.  Comparing the three guns I mentioned before, here are my thoughts.  I was equally good/bad on all three.  I would say the 75BD was probably the most recoil.  The tactical sports had the lightest trigger which was good and bad as you have to real careful or I would have double taps unintentionally.  The new gun is the Dan Wesson Pointman Nine.  I had multiple jams, though they warn you that is very normal during breakin.  You can tell the slide drags and the jams were normally the first one out of the mag.  The black on black site on the TS is hard for me to target on  a black silhouette.   I really prefer the singles stack on the DW.  The grip on the TS is a handful.  The overall feel of a gun in your hand goes to the CZ 75.  The main thing I did not care for on the DW was the any times the case was ejected into my face and shirt.  Why does that happen? The trigger on the DW was very crisp.

Well, this is CZ that followed me home on Saturday. Went to the range last night and it found the bull's eye at 10 yards (actually, about the size of my fist) for the first clip  ( I mean MAGAZINE).
That makes 3 CZs for me.
P-07
75B in Brushed Stainless
and
the 97B above.

Any recommendations on a holster for the 97B?
Why Yes, I intend to carry it  ..... sometimes!

Very nice hrdguera,

Are those aluminum grips?

Yes, very thin aluminum. They make the pistol feel very 1911 / 75B. I was surprised at how a double-stack feels so tight and narrow in my hand compared to my other favorite 45, the Sig P227.

Anyone ever have any trouble with the threads in the barrel bushing? I want to put a light coat of something on them to protect the threads from heat and debris. Any suggestions?

It is a "sweet" pistol. Really does feel amazingly like the 75B. Love the grooves on top. They seem to help with line of sight.

I know the feeling.
Only I put a CZ 75B between them.
Every day I have to decide which one to carry.
Yes, I carry the 97B sometimes! I carry it in a Galco Jak-Slide 228 that I saddle soaped to damp and shaped to fit the 97B.
Yes, I covered the 97B with plastic wrap while the leather dried.
It took some work but was worth it.
When winter comes I will find a under the arm holster for the 97B that will fit nicely under my jacket.
But that is only a short time here in Texas ....maybe two months? Maybe less.
Most winters here require only a sweater or sweat-shirt.
I use the Jak-Slide 202 and 228 for almost everything; Glock 19, FNX-9, Sig P226 MK25, Sig P227, SP-07, 75B, and my Steyr M9-A1.
I feel most comfortable with it under the belt but outside the pants.
Just my opinion.

I've got my eye out for an SP-01 at a price I can afford... It's the gun I've lusted after since I first got into shooting, and I just sold a few other things and freed up some cash, so I figure it's about time that I bite the bullet and get it over with.  ;D

Though I'm intrigued lately by the Steyr L9 and if a crazy deal pops up on one of those before I find an SP-01, I might be tempted.

If the Bren Ten fits, the 97 has to fit in the Galco Miami Classic

I dabble in making holsters and think I'll make a pair of holsters and some magazine pouches for a "Dual K2" rig (just for fun or BBQs or "the Zombie War").  I have some ostrich on hand but need to look at some other exotic leathers for trim/accents.

I'm thinking 2 each 14 +1, .45's should cover most handgun situations.

The RAMI is an amazing little gun, and responds exactly like a full size to the normal modifications.

That trick shot I posted didn't inspire my yen for the 929.  Being a 9mm Luger revolver sparked the interest.  That fact that it seems to shoot pretty well  and comes with nice accesories like a reasonably long bbl and decent sights for comp.  makes it desirable to me.
Maybe even 'behind' that is the yen for the third 9mm---a carbine.  They don't make a 9mm shotgun,  so I guess you can't have everything.  :D

Brother & I went to a Friends of the NRA event last night.

This year we both won pistols (He a Glock 23 / .40 Cal and me a Springfield XDs in .45 Cal.
Last year he won a pistol (XD-9 SC) and I won two long guns (ISSC Austria MK22 Rifle and a Savage AXIS .308 Win Bolt-Action Rifle with Scope).
So I met my next handgun last night; XDs in .45 Cal.  I already have a XD-9 SC so I am very familiar with Springfields.
It is not the prettiest gun but it can sure take a lot of abuse and just keep firing away.
The XDs in .45 Cal will be strictly a CCH when concealment is the first priority.
Going to have to get a Pearce grip extensions to hold the 45 like I do with my 9mm.

And no ....brother isn't going to get "Hood Sights" for his GLock

Picked it up used (barely) from Cabelas in Hamburg, shipped in from Buda, Texas. By the serial number, it is 2014 production. Whoever had it must have put a few cylinders worth through it and decided it wasn't right for himself/herself. I hope it is right for me. Very clean, almost no turn line on the cylinder, just one small scratch on the cylinder. I got it for just under $620. Now I just have to take a loan to feed it.

My next will be a lightweight .22 for my wife to shoot while she recovers from her wrist injury/surgery.

We've looked at the Ruger 22/45 Lite and the Ruger SR22 - she favored the SR22 (perhaps because it was available in pink *eyeroll*). Anyone have any experience with either as far as reliability and ammo sensitivity is concerned?

I would just set her up to use my 75BD with the Kadet kit but she felt that was too heavy for her.

So far im 100% happy with my sr22. Its cycled everything ive put through it including some of the 60gr aguila sniper subsonic.  Double action trigger pull kinda sucks though. SA isnt too bad.  Great plinker.

My next will be a lightweight .22 for my wife to shoot while she recovers from her wrist injury/surgery.

We've looked at the Ruger 22/45 Lite and the Ruger SR22 - she favored the SR22 (perhaps because it was available in pink *eyeroll*). Anyone have any experience with either as far as reliability and ammo sensitivity is concerned?

I thought it was raspberry, and there's a lilac model too.  Oh wait, I shouldn't know that.  :o

Great pinker...I mean plinker, I picked up the threaded version.  I've been talking about getting a can for years now.  A friend of mine has the standard one, he loves it.

Gunblast does a great review on YouTube.  Both my friend and I got the SR22 because it's suppose to spit out what you put in it.  That's why I passed on the M&P 22, supposedly it has a lot of ammo failure issues.

22/45 are suppose to be great guns...I'm not a fan of the Buck Rogers space design.

I had a Ruger SR22, it was a really nice little .22.  It was a little small for my hands (I have big hands) but ate the 15 yr old ammo I fed it without a hiccup.

James,  that looks slick.  What caliber?

It's a 6.8 ARP.  Think of it like the 6.8 version of the .223 Wylde.

The barrel is a 18" AR15 Performance 1/11.25" twist mid-length gas Socom profile.
Upper is a Spartan Side Charger.  It allows you to rack the bolt without getting off the rifle.
Handguard is a 15" Diamondhead VRS-T
NiB carrier
Daniel Defense bolt
Adjustable low profile gas block
Optic is a Lucid HD7 gen 3 red dot with a 2x manifier and killflash

Yeah, neither was my wife... I am a little disappointed, if only because the bolt on it is even easier to manipulate than the slide on the SR22. The mags seem easier to deal with on the SR22, though.

Is there any .22 ammo that should generally be avoided? Hollowpoints? Thunderbolts? It is hard to find anything for a fair price right now but I suppose I'd better start stocking up when I can.

I am seriously considering a P01.  It's one of the few CZ models I have never owned.  I don't need it and it doesn't really fill a niche for me.  But that never stopped me before.  ;D

I have shot a couple different sigs lately and keep going back to wanting a different flavor of CZ lol... maybe once I have a tactical sport, a 97B, and a RAMI again I may begin to look at SIGs again. lol ... Though the Sig x5 I shot was a great pistol.

Your old RAMI goes to good use though, I finally let the wife have it. LOL! and she carries it all the time.

So I go through the gun safe looking for something to trade towards a local PMR-30, $499. Brand spanking new Armscor 38 Super. Head on down to the gun store, show the man what I have. The man behind the counter says he will give me $250 for the pistol. I declined and we shook hands. He then asked if I there was anything else he could help me with. I thought for a moment and said there was one more thing I needed. A rape whistle! He just laughed and showed me what they had, and tried to up-sell me on a tazer. Said it was the best option for me.

Want an SP 01 with a manual safety, but can't find one for a reasonable price. Not to mention being in CO with a 15 round magazine limit, the 10rd mag versions are even harder to find. So, I'm holding out for a Sphinx Standard Alpha SDP full size when it should hopefully be released first of the year. At least that's what I was told.

You think the Sphinx will be more reasonably priced then a SP-01? Interesting, what will they cost? If they are more reasonable then the SP-01 I will have seriously look into one of them as well!!!

From what I've heard, no - the Sphinx models will be more expensive. David @ CGW had some comments about the quality here (http://www.czfirearms.us/index.php?topic=63596.0).

Oh no! I'm saying I couldn't find an SP 01 at a reasonable price. I wasn't comparing the price of the CZ to the Sphinx. The Sphinx, I'm assuming, should be darn near twice the price of the CZ. Sorry for the confusion. I'm treating myself because I gave my blessing to the wife to get a new car.

I did send an email to KRISS asking about a release date and they responded with "no solid date yet, but are aiming to have all variants out by the end of this year." I can be patient.

Let me tell you, the shows are not as crowded as they use to be the last few years. Well at least here.
I was talking to few vendors and one told me it was because there was a show every month for the last few years.
Prices are ridiculously cheap, hence I purchased the Colt.

I've just gotten into handguns in the last few months. So far the collection consists of 2 Browning's (a Buck mark and a .40 caliber Hi-Power), a S&W 586, a Grand Power K100 and a just purchased CZ75  Legend 75th Anniversary. I'm kind of torn as to what's next. I'd like a T series BHP but also another .22lr...maybe a revolver like a S&W 617. I'm in Canada so it's all target orientated and all with barrels more than 105mm (about 4.15 inches)

I'd like a CZ75 Tactical sport in .40 or a 1911 in 10 mm. But the Tactical Sport would probably win out this year.
I already have 5- 1911's, 3 -.45, 1- .22 and 1- 9mm.

Maryland's new way to say registered gun. they have tossed in some moneymaking snafus for new gun owners...

the background check was already completed. yet it was cause for concern because i don't know how much detail they go into checking what shows up.

i have been accused and went to trial for some BS that i did not do and could not have done. btw this was known by Law enforcement before i was arrested. A book my evolve from this case if i get around to it.

so anyway federal guideline says i can own a gun. i have never been convicted of any crime felony or misdemeanor. i have nol pros's only and a PBJ for carrying a registered gun with no permit. the cop wanted to speak on my behalf when we went to court, how many times do you hear that lol.

OK, finally got my new SP-01 Tactical back from CGW :) This will primarily be my home defense/nightstand/bug out gun. I had David do the DCP work, crown the barrel, remove the lanyard loop and mill off the right side decocker. The grips were a birthday present from my daughter - they are VZ Diamondbacks. I thought they might be hand shredders but they feel good to me. Guess I like them rough LOL. The light is a Surefire X300 Ultra... I have a light-bearing holdser coming from Pitbull Tactical - should be here any day now. I'll add a pic when it arrives.

I'll buy a lottery ticket tomorrow. If I win big, I'll buy this one - http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=447916442 (Arsenal Firearms Double 1911).

If not, then I'll buy one of the Swedish M40 Lahti pistols I've been looking at. (OK, to be honest, I'll do this option either way)

Not my next but always on my list is the Finnish Lahti L-35, it's built a bit better than the Swedish copy and besides it was my grandads side arm from 1939-1945. He also carried a Suomi konepistooli and that one is off the list for now!

I am satisfied with the service size pistols I have in 9mm. So, my wantlist in no particular order:

P07
75 Compact B or D
G19 Gen 4
G26
S&W Shield
CW9
PT111 Millenium G2

Let's see... I now have a P-07. Scrub the Millenium G2, there are better choices out there. The P-07 is an equivalent of the G19... Something smaller is in order, like the Shield...maybe a RAMI? However, the 75 Compact/P-01/PCR are nice options too... :-\

The grip size on that .45 pistol-pistol is definitely on the BIG side.  Looks amazingly 'normal' otherwise.

I looked at it in the store's display case. The grip size is roughly the size of a Desert Eagle (it is wider, but shorter than the DE). Double 8-round magazine, two barrels, fires 2 shots of .45 ACP with each pull of the trigger.

I've heard that the Finnish L-35 is a better made pistol, but the M40 Husqvarna made pistols are a lot easier to find. The Finnish version will stay on my long term want list.

I just agreed to buy my buddy's CZ 97B.  He has it set up SAO so had to buy some custom parts to take it back to DA/SA.  He is considering trading for my P01.  I like it but don't carry it.  He wants to shoot it a bit more and see if he likes it.  He is going to trade me a fully upgraded Compact.  I shoot the all steel better anyway.  I picked up and 85B a couple of weeks ago and my pro package P07 should ship out any day now.  So, the only gun really left on the "must have" list is an SP01 safety model.  Down the road I will pick up another 82 and 83.  I want to find ones that are keepers.  I would someday like to have another 40B and 40P but that isn't all that important.  So, I guess, for the time being, I am down to wanting only one.  That will change.

When I was picking up a new .22 Cal upper for my Bushmaster I handled one of the new Rock Island Tactical 1911s.
I am not a 1911 fan even though I have one (old Chrome Colt Model 70 Series).
But I have to say that the feel, the smooth slide, and the adjustable trigger made this one for $575 very very tempting.

Laugh if y'all must (I expect it actually lol), but my next pistol is going to be......a 9mm CZ 100. After I get it to the range to see just how horrible it is, most likely going to ship it to David and see if he can work any of that Cajun magic on it.

It turns out my next handgun is going to be a Russian Nagant M1895 revolver (7.62x38R). Don't know the year yet, but it should be from between 1930 to sometime in 1940's. I pre-ordered today thinking I'll hear back in a month or two. Turns out they'll arrive on Friday and will start shipping to buyers FFLs next week!

The Beretta 92 still remains the best-looking semi-auto I've ever seen.

My "next gun" changes every week, but I think my current list is as follows:
1. Kahr CM9
2. Ruger GP-100
3. CZ-75B Brushed Stainless

Plus, if a CZ P-02 or a reasonably-priced Beretta 84 Nickel becomes available, I'm jumping all over it. I've lost several Gunbroker auctions for both.

I also love Walther P-38's and have three of them.

(http://www.hunt101.com/data/548/3949P38s_3.jpg)
WWII P38 and two Post War P38's

And yes, Beretta's design extraction from the P-38 was not lost on me, either, as I have often shot a Taurus PT92, which is the cousin of the Beretta 92.

(http://www.hunt101.com/data/549/medium/PT92wPachgrip01.JPG)
Taurus PT92 w Pachmayr Grip and Ghost Ring Rear Sight

I would not mind picking up a Taurus PT917, which is a slightly shorter version of the PT92.

I have a first generation 97B, it is a great range gun but I would not want to carry it all day! When I am not carrying my CZ P-07 I carry a P-83 in 9x18 Mak. What I want to carry instead of the P-83 would be one of these: CZ P-01, Kahr CW 9, S&W Shield or one  of the Airweight S&W snubbies/3" bbl revolver in.357/.38 Spl +P. Something thinner than the P-07 would be ideal. I know a snubbie is not thinner but it would be lighter!  ;)

(http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRpzuzlIZuQrNGSQMzDeyVlq95V7Z8z4vGrWM5CbFbFQxWVBgy6)

Beretta 84FS Cheetah .380

Not as comfortable to shoot as any of my CZs in 9mm or .45 ACP. Surprising amount of recoil for a .380.
Not easy to rack and it already bit me, twice.
Compact feel and weight makes it easy to carry. May put a Hogue grip on it to see if that helps.
If not ..... off it goes.
But really, it shoots straight, real straight. And it looks really cool. Looks cool under my tuxedo, (just kidding).

Between a Bersa Thunder 9 Pro UC or a Springfield xd9 sub-compact.This gun will be in my CC rotation so I want it to be as controllable as possible (recoil & flip).I like the all metal frame and full length rails of the Bersa but the width at 1.45" is worrysome.The Springfield has the grip safety and high bore axis.

My CZ 100 has a lighter trigger pull and overall weight, not to mention feeling much smaller than the Cougar, which was a little bit smoother at trigger break and without the overtravel. The Cougar shot well but, was resold almost immediately.

That being said however, I will be picking up a 9mm PX4 Type D down the road! It's a shame that I am not a fan of the .40, because almost every Cabela's I pass out here on the road has a nice selection of used, police trade-in PX4 Type D's with night sights between $430-450.

FJ, holding a PX4 and a Cougar side by side feels like apples and oranges, or at least to me. The Storm IMO, has better natural POA and though only a few ounces lighter feels very, very different and in a positive way.

Not saying that it would replace any of my top 3 CZ's , I just want one! Yes, I am still attached to Beretta lol

You mentioned grip size, that's another thing I prefer with the PX4 over the Cougar. The Cougar grip is entirely too big and fat for me, especially compared to my RAMI, which is honestly about the fattest grip I will tolerate on a double stack 9mm. Pics over in my collection thread.

I've watched a few reviews of that gun.  All seem to be quite positive, with the exception of price.

I'd love to read a unbiased review, if you'd like to do one!

Let's see...
I need to get another P01.  Mine went in a trade.  I need another RAMI.  Probably going to try the PCR again.  I would love a semi-compact.  I would also love to find a Massada.  Of course getting another 82 and 83 is on my list.  I may need a part-time job.

I didn't score on a Black Friday or a Cyber Monday deal, so I ordered this from a local gun store's online site. I'd been wanting on for a while. Bersa Thunder .380.

Nice...always wanted the walther but the price, seems the bersa got some positive reviews as the price is nice also

The Bersa .380 is a great shooting gun, well balanced, fits nicely in your hand and the sights are fine.
Have fun with it.

Same here... I recently got my SP-01 back from CGW and took it and my PCR to the range this past weekend... I expected the SP-01 to shoot noticeably better (especially with the X300 I have on it) but the PCR is neck and neck. There is just something about the balance of the PCR... and it does have a slightly better trigger. My only gripe with it is the rear sight...

I recently completed a Sig Masters Course for rifle and pistol.  On completion we were offered the chance to purchase a Sig 320 in our choice of caliber and model (carry, fullsize).  I was told it was at Sig employee cost which was too good to pass up. 

Beyond that I would be interested in the single stack 9mm that Glock is supposed to be releasing in the first quarter of 2015.

Both, really...

I find the notch too narrow, miss having a ledge on the front (for a defensive pistol I really think that should be standard) and would prefer an all black rear sight. (I have blacked out the dots - that helps but is not ideal)

The stupid reverse cutout on the slide keeps me from replacing the sight.

Take a look at a Ruger LCR, I traded off my 642 for one about a year and a half ago. Better trigger and changing the front sight is much easier. SoCo Kydex make a great IWB holster for the LCR that I'd suggest a look at too.

Thanks, but no thanks. The Ruger LCR is bulkier and it's fat sticky rubber grip doesn't bode well for pocket carry, and unlike the 642, there are no grip options available that I like. I also dislike finger grooves on my grips, and internal lock mechanisms. Better trigger? True, but it's also easier to lock up if not reset correctly, and a good trigger job on a 642 can even things out.

The S&W J-Frames remain the finest discreet carry pocket revolvers ever produced, bar none. They just get everything right on so many levels.

I have to politely disagree, S&W J-frames were one of the best, but most current models seem to have very poor fit and finish. A model 60 pro made 3 trips back to S&W for timing problems and a bent crane. It was sold off after being returned for the third time in under a year. After the poor service and failures to get the repairs correct I doubt I'd ever buy another new S&W revolver. I have an 25 to 30 year old model 19 and a 20 plus year old model 57 that I'll keep until I can't shoot anymore, then give them to my son or grand sons.

 I've never had a reset or lock up issue with my LCR, but had that problem regularly with the 642 I had.

The Bantam/boot grip for the LCR makes it every bit as compact as a 442/642, and for me anyway much more comfortable to shoot.

The Bantam/boot grip for the LCR makes it every bit as compact as a 442/642, and for me anyway much more comfortable to shoot.
The main issue with the LCR is it's bulk and grip, making it unsuitable for pocket carry as far as myself is concerned. Might be no problem for a bigger guy, but not for me. I tried pocketing both the LCR and the 642. The 642 slipped right in and out of my pocket like it was a part of my body, and felt perfectly comfortable in an inexpensive BlackHawk pocket holster. The LCR did not, and produced a noticeably larger profile in my pocket. It also did not fit into some pocket holsters that otherwise fit the 642, even though the manufacturer claimed it would. The LCR's large, bulky sticky rubber grip with it's aggressive finger grooves made drawing out of my pocket a challenge. 

I took turns staging and working the triggers of both and the LCR's was much easier to lock up. I had to put more effort into locking up the 642's. I've seen a video where a guy shooting one had his LCR lock up also as he tried to fire it as fast as possible. Not good. I guess there's a price to pay for that unique cam trigger action. Maybe Ruger has worked out this bug by now? I don't know.

That Bantam boot grip helps but it's still sticky rubber and provides a poorer grip, not to mention being ugly as sin. Which is another issue... not one of function but of form. The LCR is an ugly duckling compared to the pretty J-Frame. Just an opinion but I'm the one that always has to look at the darn thing. Add that with the other more important issues and the 642's infinite choice in grips and accessories and it's stellar track record throughout the years and it's not hard for me to decide which one I'd choose.

Reliably issues? I haven't heard many complaints in terms of reliably issues with the 642 other then a few about it's finish wearing off. The 442 doesn't seem to have this problem, although I've never seen either one with an abnormally worn finish. However, I have heard of complaints of the above mentioned reset/lock-up issue with the LCR, and flame cutting near the upper barrel on the aluminum framed LCR's, and seen evidence of it as well.

Fit and finish? The S&W J-frames I've handled looked fine to me. Sure, they aren't really nice stainless or blued anymore but how many guns at that price point are these days? They certainly exhibited a finer finish and workmanship then the Charter Arms and Taurus J-Frame knock-offs I've handled.

Think of which one may be the most useful in the short or long term. Since you already have one full size pistol, I'd utilize that SP-01 as a home defense gun or OWB carry and get a Compact 9mm as a CCW, if that is an option for you.

Keep in mind you may not be needing a rail on a CCW, and the extra bulk of the P-01's frame rail may make concealed carry more cumbersome and limit your holster options. The P-01 is also more expensive and may be harder to find then a standard 75 Compact.

I've never owned or handled a P-01, so I don't know for certain, but all the above mentioned reasons were why I decided on a standard compact model as a primary CCW, plus I didn't want the decocker.

Which one outshouts the PCR? Compact or P-01 or both? I wonder why this would be the case, unless you just got an inaccurate barrel or the lighter weight of the PCR caused more felt recoil.

I'd also want a compact series next--drawn to P01, but my wife and older kids maybe would feel 75 compact (not PCR) is softer because it's heavier--anyone have experience on that?

I've also never had a 1911 of my own--too many to choose from and the prices, jeez.  Kind of like Colt's own XSE's, but maybe Springfield Range Officer given $ difference.  Of course the 97B looks awesome but don't know if I get a chance to try one without buying--but how wrong could I go w/it?

Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: Birds Away on December 25, 2014, 05:14:17 AM
The weight makes the Compact by far the better shooter.  Some people don't like to carry the extra weight.  I say get a good belt and holster and carry what you shoot best.  IMO, the P01 shoots better than the PCR, also by a wide margin.  I think it may be because of the slight additional nose weight.  I know it is probably insignificant but it sure seems to make a difference to me.

I hit my local gun shops this morning looking for a Beretta PX4 Compact before the rebate expires. One shop had one for $596, I passed as MSRP is $575. Bass Pro had one for $550.

I got home and decided to check online. Bud's had the make an offer open on the Compact so I bid $450 and they accepted it. I hate it when that happens. I pulled up another screen and bid $400 and they took that also. I couldn't get under $400, so I took that with a $75 rebate. I figured $325 is not bad.

Either a SAR K2-45 or a CZ97. Leaning towards the 97.

I have a first generation 97B, it is a great range gun but I would not want to carry it all day! When I am not carrying my CZ P-07 I carry a P-83 in 9x18 Mak. What I want to carry instead of the P-83 would be one of these: CZ P-01, Kahr CW 9, S&W Shield or one  of the Airweight S&W snubbies/3" bbl revolver in.357/.38 Spl +P. Something thinner than the P-07 would be ideal. I know a snubbie is not thinner but it would be lighter!  ;)

Another choice for me to consider... a Walther CCP. Here's a video comparison of the CCP vs a Canik TP9.

I so love my Canik 55 TP9! You can read my review of it here: http://www.czfirearms.us/index.php?topic=58306.0

While I like the stock TP-9 Grip, the Pachmayr Grip Glove enhances it a bit.

I hit my local gun shops this morning looking for a Beretta PX4 Compact before the rebate expires.... I couldn't get under $400, so I took that with a $75 rebate. I figured $325 is not bad.
That's a steal, congrats! Are you going to keep it configured as an F, or convert it to a G?

I wish Beretta would make the compact (and subcompact) in DAO like they do the full size (picked up a police trade in Type D a couple weeks ago). In lieu of that, I prefer Type G, as my first ever pistol was an M9 and I am not a fan of the combination safety/decocker.

Are you considering swapping out your mainspring for a D style?
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: oreocat on December 30, 2014, 06:56:50 AM
I'll have to get in in hand and see how it feels. I have D springs in my M9 and 92s, but I'm not seeing much online about a need to do anything to the PX4 series.

Set you up a cardboard box with a stick attached to a string, put a couple boxes of ammo in there and when that pre-B comes sniffing around you got it!

Well I picked it up this afternoon, ran it home for a quick cleaning and hit the range. It was 20 degrees but I did get 100 rounds threw it, all good.

Cyanide, I don't think it needs any spring work. I did find out some people use the D spring from the 8000 Cougar, but I don't see why. It has a nice trigger, and the double action is pretty light as it comes from the factory.

I don't usually get too excited about a gun, but then I saw THIS. Custom DW 1911 and built to spec at CZC. I can't afford it but I want it.

For sale is my 1911 from CZ Custom Shop chambered in .40 S&W built on a Dan Wesson slide and frame. It also comes with an interchangeable 10mm barrel. Everything was custom ordered and hand fit by gunsmith Eric Zinn and the CZ Custom Shop. I intended to use it to compete for single stack competition for Tuesday Night Steel, but things changed and I don't have time to compete or reload. It's in exceptional shape. It comes with three Cobramag 9-round magazines (interchangeable for both .40 and 10mm). I paid $3,306.93 for it (I can provide you with the original sales order). Here are the details of the build:
-AFTEC Extractor
-SVI Trigger
-SVI Trigger Base
-SVI Bobtail
-Wilson Combat Sear Spring
-Wilson Combat Ambi-Safety
-EGW Barrel Bushing
-Caspian Ejector
-Kart .40 Barrel
-Kart 10mm Barrel
-EGW Long Strut
-EGW OS Firing Pin Stop
-Ed Brown Rebuild Kit
-Ed Brown Extended Mag Catch
-Koenig Hammer
-MGW Sight Blank
-Wilson Combat Guide Rod
-Hiene Sights
-EGW Slide Stop
-S&A Mag Well
-EGW Firing Pin
-Wolff Recoil Spring
-Wilson Combat Plunger Tube
-30 LPI Front Strap Checkering
-45 Degree Cut Bottom of Slide
-Carry De-horn
-Hand-fit & Blended
-Ahrends Grips
-EZ Logo Engraved (For Eric Zinn)
Until recently, I had not shot it for well over a year. It's time to move it down the road. It is as tightly and smoothly fit as any Wilson Combat I have owned. I will part with it for $2000.00 cash. I may accept partial trades for other quality firearms, specifically: Sig 229, Browning Citori in 20ga, Winchester Model 70 (pre-64), or a Glock 23. I am also interested in .22 handguns with threaded barrels.

Thanks muggia and firemanjones.  Found it at a local pawn shop last week.  It is a .32 caliber PPK/S made in West Germany, imported by Interarms.   My son and I shot 34 rounds through it yesterday without a hiccup.  I was surprised how stout the recoil was for a .32.  I bet your .380 does have some punch to it.   I thought the box and target was a nice addition.  I plan on selling it soon, but it's a kick to own it for a little while.

   Been looking at subcompacts lately. Think I've narrowed it down to a CZ83, Sig p232 or a Beretta px4 storm 9mm. Does anyone have any or all of these and can offer first hand opinions? I understand what forum this is but...

I have really become enamored with the .380 cartridge in the size of the CZ83/SigP232/WaltherPPK.
The average Joe gun owner sees no place for this size gun in .380.  They will say "Why pick a .380 gun that size when they now make 9mm in the same size?"  Or "The .380 is below the minimum for self defense".  Also you'll hear "Blow backs have more recoil than the tilt barrel designs"

Even though, all 3 statements have validity, I think the group of guns you're looking at in .380 are a great size for a Blow Back gun design.  Every one I've tried have a very natural ability to be on target when you raise them up to get a sight picture.  And they very naturally shoot from retention.   They are just plain fun to shoot.

So here is my take:

None of the guns you mention are easy to pocket carry, but can be done in cargo pockets if you desire.
The Sig P232 has a very nice trigger.  Mine is 9# DA, and 3.5# SA and the DA is very very smooth.  My P232 has never had a malfunction.  I doubt the small pocket 380s are this reliable.  The P232 has a heel mag release, so very different from the usual frame mag releases.  You can not lock the slide back unless you have an empty magazine to place in the gun.  In other words, the slide lock is internal.  Same is true for the Walther PPK, which you didn't ask about.  The PPK by the way is easy to pocket carry if you wanted to add that option.  Slide bite is very real possibility with P232 or PPK, unless you get the new S&W PPK, but they generally aren't as reliable.
Sadly I don't own a CZ83, but would like to change that one day.  So give comparison on that one. 

I had a PX4 in .45 and it was a great running gun.  It had a tilt barrel design.  The subcompact PX4 has the traditional tilt barrel design.  It is a chunky gun. 

I am curious as to why you chose those 3 as options. 

Sorry for my rambling post.  I've had too much tea this morning!!!

   Towns thanks for your advice! It's appritiated for sure. Sorry for delayed reply I worked a double shift today/last night. Came home and ate dinner/breakfast/lunch and disentegrated into my bed to sleep for the first time in 30 hrs.  I wish I had some grand reason for why I picked those 3. As far as the cz83 and sig p232 being blowback I'm not TOO worried about that as I'm a large framed guy. 6'1" ish at 325lbs. and plenty strong to handle it ok in rapid fire scenerios. The hammer bite is a concern however. As far as the px4 storm I'm just intrigued by it. Wish it was some major tech reason, there just isn't. I wish I could say that looks don't matter but they do and firearms are not any different. These are all three good looking pistols even that px4. I will defenintly look into the ppk. Thank you I'm always up for any pointers- I'm new to collecting.

The CZ83 is a fine .380 pistol. It is accurate and being all steel, heavy enough to be fun to shoot. I've only put about 200 rounds through it in the time I've had it, but it has functioned flawlessly.

In comparison, I have an Interarms-era Mauser HSc in .380. Much less pleasant to shoot, not as accurate and nowhere near as reliable.

For a really compact .380, I have the Ruger LCP (first .380 I bought). It isn't a lot of fun to shoot, but after ~400 rounds of different manufacturers ammo, it has functioned 100% reliably. It isn't as accurate as the CZ83 when using the iron sights, but it is easy to add a trigger guard laser (mine is a LaserMax).

I have not fired the Sig or PX4 Storm for comparison.

I agree, the price of the Borberg XR series is a bit on the upper end.
I have very few problems paying US labor costs associated with "Made in the USA" products as long as I'm convinced I am getting what I pay for.  Now I just have to see if the XR9 is sold in CA. Unfortunately, Borberg Arms is not listed on the CA DOJ approved for sale list. However, I have found 2 Borberg distributors in Los Angeles so I'll do some more checking soon.
Despite the list price of the Borberg XR9's I'm estimating that the XR9 would probably cost about 20% - 30% more than my "finished" CZ's. To become head over heels fanatical about my CZ'z I had to modify the action, fire control group, springs and hammer with the CGW PRO Pack. This added about 30% - 40% to the purchase price of the CZ pistols. In the end...my CZ's have not turned out to be completely bargain shooters. That said, I am convinced that I have received MUCH MORE VALUE THAN WHAT I HAVE PAID FOR MY CZ's!

As far as handguns, i am thinking about these once i recover from all of the CA SSE madness.

CZ SP-01 or 75 CTS Longslide.
CZ TS 9mm
CZ RAMI BD
CZ P-01
Ruger LCR 9mm - i am thinking this one is up next.

I still have a few options even in California.

Thos are good options.

I would really like an LCR in 9mm.  I like my .38special version, and the reloading options for the 9mm would be much better.
I held a RAMI for the first time yesterday.  It was a much different feel than my 75BD or P-01, but I really liked it.

Made a few extra bucks doing a side job. Access control, burg alarm, and IP camera system install for a local business. Decided to treat myself to a new revolver, S&W 627 Pro Series. It's an 8 shooter 357Mag. Had it out yesterday after work and was hitting a soda can at 50 yards 7 out of 8 with a 158gr SWC loaded to 1100fps on 357 cases.

I got my KSG last month and it's pretty awesome. Had a few feeding hiccups in the beginning but now it runs fine. Saw John Wick last weekend and he used KSG in a scene. Just noticed how he's aiming it like a rocket launcher in the picture  ;D

This is probably one of, if not THE best pocket pistol on the planet.  For $500 I think it is. 

938 SAS w/ LOK ridgebacks and RTK black aluminum trigger.

 ;D

Get 'choo some flush mags and a Desantis super fly / nemesis. 

Gun shoots itty bitty groups @ POA with 124gr ammo.  I was using the warmer GECO stuff and had zero problems.  I was actually in awe of how well it shot.  I highly recommend some FL paste or grease finding it's way into the trigger mech.  It's kinda crappy when you first get it with the plastic trigger.  The grips weren't grippy enough out of the box either.  LOK's ridgebacks are like holding dull razor blades.  They don't hurt, but the gun won't move.  I can't say enough about how good this gun is. 



As for me, I'd like a 'surpy 75B to strip down and possibly go pretty hard with the SA.  Keep watching Coles waiting for more to pop.  After dumping about $1k on the P-01 between the gun and the parts from CGW.  I want something I can build up.  That doesn't start at $600... + $350-400 in upgrades...

The 97 series does not disappoint those looking for an accurate, soft shooting .45.
I find my 97BD and the SP01 Tactical to be quite similar in shooting feel and performance.
Try to shoot a 97 along with your other .45 options. I think you will be impressed with how controllable a .45 can be.

Love my 97BD. Solved the loosening grip issue with O-rings under the screw heads. I use it as a Concealed Carry about once a week.

I've got a steel compact but it has ambi safeties and is too wide.  I could put a single sided safety back on it and take the first shot DA.  But I pulled the fpb and it's technically not legal and I don't like breaking the rules. 

I actually picked up a VP9 tonight and it sure feels nice.  I look forward to getting it to the range.  I've been getting the hankering to pick up a nice striker fired double stack.  The new CCP division gave me an excuse to do so.

Good luck Towns! All 4 of my HKs are on their way out actually. I love the LEM, but the pistols themselves aren't doing anything for me so getting rid of them to fund other projects/acquisitions.

Thinking I am going to pick up a couple of pistols that I have had in the past and gotten rid of; a Glock 19 (Gen4, and maybe a 17 too), and another P-07 Duty, preferably the model with the extended barrel and night sights. Most likely going to snatch up a Beretta PX4 Subcompact to go along with my full size as well.

My crystal ball is telling me that I will be adding one of those to my collection very soon! Perhaps it will give me the warm, fuzzy feeling that I thought the HK LEM pistols were going to, but failed, since it has a trigger with full resistance through the entire pull....

Ordered a SAR K2 45. Can't wait. Already got my 550b setup for 45 ACP in preparation. ;)

Somewhat off topic, but will keep it short. Went to a local sporting goods and they were selling .45acp WWB for almost 76cents per shot! :o Then I went to Walmart and WWB was still over 60 cents a shot! I'm sure glad I got into reloading, 45acp for 16 cents a shot sounds a lot nicer than 76.

I bought these about 2 weeks ago.  Don't EVER buy 3 guns at one time.  You just can't enjoy 3 at one time. 
I like the RAMI BD more than I thought I would.
I really like the LEM trigger on the P30L
I kinda like the .32acp Guardian, but not in love with it.  I'd return it if i could get what I paid for it.

Either a P-64 or a RAMI.

Either a P-64 or a RAMI.

The P-64 ships on Monday and the shop was all out of RAMIs to buy

Just got my CZ 75B Omega yesterday and took it to the range just to get a feel for it, so that was my next handgun.

Of course, I didn't expect to have another one so soon, but a local guy was selling a used Glock26 for a good price and I couldn't pass it up.  Where I live is Glock country, yet I never bought one at the going prices.  So, in a couple of days, it'll be a used G26.

I have the M9-A1 and I bought my brother the L9-A1.
They are great shooters and the ergonomics are the best there is IMHO.
But ....and I say 'BUT' the guns fling spent brass back at our head(s). Not every shot but at least one out of every magazine or so. It is annoying to have a hot brass down my shirt, on my balding head, or stuck on my ear. I have changed out the extractor and the spring. I have mixed and matched the parts that the Steyr guys sent me (fast and free). But still, it happens.

But the good thing is the gun is just perfect otherwise. I really like the triangular sites and the ergonomics. It is just like pointing my finger.
And it breaks down in a flash for easy cleaning. I still carry it and when I want to show off at the range it is the only gun that is as accurate as my CZs.
Just a note: my police buddy has it in 40 cal and never has that issue with the brass at the head.
So, I always button my top shirt button and always wear glasses and a cap at the range anyway.

That's a good choice. I had the opportunity to put 40 rounds through the GP-100 Match Champion over the weekend. I think it will give me a severe case of revolveritis to go along with my current case of RAMIitis.

Yes, the Match Champions are very nice looking, and have a better trigger from the factory than the stock GP100, but I am planning on using it as a  PA trail gun, so I'd go for the standard and save about $200.

I've got a Smith and Wesson 915 on the way, after shipping and FFL it's still under $300. I hadn't actively sought that particular pistol out, but the price was right.

I'm a fan of metal pistols, and have accumulated a few. When you look around today, you see a ton of polymer, and that is becoming more prevalent with CZ, SIG, and Beretta. S&W and Ruger have already abandoned their metal lineup, except for the 1911s mostly.

I think a good metal fullsize pistol (like the CZ 75) is the epitome of the pistol, and I want to collect some decent examples before they are all gone. I had a hole in the collection this S&W fills, now I just need a SIG. ;D

Gp100's will eat any load of 357. They are a stout handgin. You get a trigger job done and it's a piece you would think twice about getting rid of. I looved my gp100.

Hi Bishop, well I think you should just come down and check it out in person, that's what I think! Ha, Ha,
The trigger should be about identical to your 40 and my 9. I do miss that 40 at times.

I should be getting a call tomorrow from the FFL if it comes in early enough, already told the wife to plan on going to the range in the evening. 8)

Definitely getting that new DAO P-07 that CZ is finally releasing. They must've been hearing my prayers since it's supposed to come with your choice of Heinie Straight 8 or Meprolight NS's, deeper cut side serrations ala CZ 100, and, be infused with a touch of that CGW magic; can't go wrong with a 7# buttery smooth pull and moderate reset! How they made it 100% ambi is beyond me, but I don't care, it's simply an amazing design that's long overdue, and may make a lot of people reconsider a true DAO!

I fully realize that most people no longer want a true DAO, but I have twice now lost a DAO pistol by waiting to go back and get them.

The first was a Colt Pony (true DAO .380acp) with a very nice trigger.  I went to ask my son about it (he's my resident expert on used gun prices and what to look for).  When I returned 1 hour later, it was gone. 

Yesterday, I went to a gun store that had a DAO Beretta Cougar last month.  Well yesterday it was gone:( 

SOMEBODY (besides Cyanide) likes true DAO handguns.

Same here FMJ.  I have searched for a single stack for a while.  Handled a Sig P290RS that holds 6 rounds two days ago.  It just didn't seem that much smaller than my RAMI BD.  Would be interesting to carry them both IWB for a while and really see if there is a felt difference.  LOVE my RAMI BD.

I am pretty well set for pistols at the moment but I continue to be enticed by the H&K VP9. I certainly don't need one but I like the way it feels in the hand and the trigger seems good. Not a huge fan of the paddle mag release but could probably get used to it.

If I got one I'd want to carry it, though, and that is where it would get expensive. New holster, mag carriers, extra mags, and if it worked well, spare pistol. *sigh*

Good thing I am effective at talking myself out of purchases LOL

Thanks for the positive comments guys. :)

The finish actually was a little rough (it looked tarnished and kind of flat) since it was used (and originally from North Carolina so a bit more humidity than here), but I spent quite a while with a microfiber and Renaissance Wax to clean it up.

I removed it from its plastic bag and started to dry buff it with the microfiber and found I was pulling a tiny bit of finish rust (yes I know the bluing is an oxidized finish).
So I started waxing it and just polished as I waxed. I used the wax and not any polish so that I would minimize removing any Bluing.
Tough to do when you are trying to remove another form of oxidation.
At first there was some brown then gradually each coat got less and less brown on the cloth until I got to the finish you see here.

I got some trigger time on a Rami and a shield side by side today. I would like to acknowledged that besides the fact that these two pistols are both sub compact 9's, the similarities end there. They are in a different class, not an apple to apple comparison. The shield is far more concealable/EDCable, lighter, thinner, I could pack it around IWB on a daily basis and not even know it was there. I like it a lot for that purpose. As I suspected, the Rami is a well made, accurate, reliable firearm that feels great in the hand, has higher capacity, and is a pleasure to shoot, It's a really solid little gun. I loooove it. The price difference is substantial 200+ which could be a factor. Of course I have a holster mold for the shield and not the Rami, that is a big plus in favor of the Rami. Decisions, decisions.... I'd have to sell a gun to do it (I have several that never see the light of day), but I may end up with both... Shhh don't tell the wifey. :)

RFG,
if you shot a stock RAMI you would not believe just how good it is with some trigger work.
My RAMI (actually the wife's since she took it from me) has the smoothest double action trigger I have EVER tested on a gun, no creep or increase in pressure just a smooth 6.5lb. pull.

RFG,
if you shot a stock RAMI you would not believe just how good it is with some trigger work.
My RAMI (actually the wife's since she took it from me) has the smoothest double action trigger I have EVER tested on a gun, no creep or increase in pressure just a smooth 6.5lb. pull. It has had full polished action, springs, and a shadow hammer, that's it internally. Single action is as crisp as any customized cz.  Just an FYI to tempt you more.

I bet. I have an sp-01 that I want to have a trigger job done on. Or do it myself. I've done a few 1911's and glock trigger mods, but the CZ internals look a bit more challenging for a novice to mess with. I already liked the trigger on the rami, it has over a thousands rounds threw it and may have been worked, the guy who owns it never leaves anything factory for long. I should have asked him. I'll find out. There was no comparison between the trigger on the shield and the RAMI. I'll have another CZ in short order either a p01 or RAMI. I'm glad I found this site it has renewed my passion for the Brand.

The safety models are much easier than they look. If you have already dug into a 1911, ill bet with a little research you would be fine taking apart a CZ safety model. There is good support here on the forums as well.

For sure 1911's aren't exactly simple. I'm always ready to at least give it a try. My understanding is that the safety modles yield a better trigger anyway. Is that a correct assumption. My sp01 is a safety modle.

The safety model should technically have a better trigger, but most people can't even tell a difference. With even a tiny bit of custom work there is no noticeable difference. David from CGW has many posts regarding this belief.

   Agreed. I have yet to hear anyone state clearly why a decocker mechanically cannot achieve a trigger as good as a safety model. I am not saying there is no reason, just that i have asked the question many times and have yet to receive a clear answer on the matter. It seams to me that the decockers are just more cumbersome and time consuming to work on. So it may not be a matter of "cant" but rather "less likely to" due to the added complexities in the CZ decocker design. In my experience a CZ may have to be torn down more than a few times to get things prefect. At this point i can strip a safety model in a few minutes, a decocker on the other hand would take me significantly longer. To add to that the decockers have a few quirks that one can muck up on reassembly that safety models do not have. So in the end, decockers are just less friendly for DIY gunsmiths. With enough experiences i am sure the gap between the two could be narrowed but i do not believe the decocker will ever be quite as friendly as a safety model.

RFG,
another great thing about the safety model CZ's is the internals are exactly the same whether RAMI, CZ75, or CZ97 they are all the same so once you learn one you have learned to work on all of them.
Okay there are some exceptions, OMEGA and the SA come to mind but you get the idea.

That interchangeability is great. I had to remind my wife today that the 18 rnd. SP01 magazine fits right into her RAMI. She snapped it in and shot it empty without a hiccup.

I couldn't notice a difference in the stock triggers of my Rami Bd, Phantom or 75 B. Of course now the Rami BD and Phantom have been tweaked, so big difference between them and the 75 now. Still deciding what to do with the 75B.
   The Rami was the first firearm I ever tore apart. The Phantom was a whole different beast the first time. Heck, with the way everyone talks about how easy the safety models are to tear down, the 75 should be a cake walk.

picked it up.  and, in LUV!   way fun to shoot.. I didn't know it but it had some upgrades I didn't notice at purchase.. like new stainless bushing, Wilson steel mainframe with integral magwell, extra magazines, has original grips and Hogue overmolded finger groove grips.. etc.

shoots awesome.. I did put thin grips on it.. WOW,  really feels good and shoots to POA more instinctively.. and I had no idea of 'soft' the recoil of a .45 is in a full size steel gun.. makes me want... more! in different calibers.

cheers

I was in a quandary over my next pistol until I happened across a 75 on a facebook BST group last week.  I was wanting a 07 or 75, but needed a G40.

So now that I found a 75 my next is supposed to be a G40, I need a 10mm before next hunting season as my woods gun.  I sold my old g20 because I didn't reload at the time (5 years back) but now I'm ready, I have brass and dies all I need is a gun.

Of course that could change if anything comes around at a deal I can't resist...

    It is in 9mm. The few hundred rounds i have put through it so far have felt like cheating due to the overall weight and the crisp 2lb trigger out of the box. I also do not currently reload or shoot any pistols in 40 S&W. The California models do not pop up too often around here. Availability figured into my decision to pick one up as well. It is possible that i will find more love or a use for 40 in time. I plan on picking up a slide in 40 down the road for use on a few of my 9mm CZ75 frames so i can experiment and learn more about the caliber.

What is the role of the gun, or its intended purpose by cz? Is it a limited or open class gun? What is the overall weight like? Did you keep those sights. or are you putting target sights/reflex sights on?

Due to my total lack of experience with any kind of competition i cannot answer some of your questions. I have heard some folks like them for steel challenge? The CZ USA site says "Built from the ground up for IPSC competition". The total weight is 2.83 lbs -vs- an SP-01    
2.400 lbs. I installed a CZC FO front sight before i shot it. The stock front was a flat black post. I like the stock rear sight, though it could be a bit deeper. The role of the TS for me is that it told me to buy it, in the end i just do what the CZ's tell me. I am working on post about the mechanical differences of the TS and other CZ models. You should see it in the next few days on the forums.

The 75 will be like a $100.00 more when I get done putting on all things the P-06 come's with. Like the rubber grips & night sights. Both will get steel guide rods & new G/R springs. I will carry it & I already carry my CZ75bd or the 75compact,p-01 & sometimes the 97B. So carrying a full size with the weight is no biggie for me. What say you? Thanks.

Have my second CZ 100 (fixed sight model) waiting for me to get back home and pick it up. Then it might get shipped off to David ASAP to let him check it out in detail and, possibly see if he can work his magic to make it's trigger resemble my Sig P250 SC.

Still have my Sig P250 C and Ext. Barrel, NS P-07 Duty on layaway for about another month, then will finally get around to picking up a PX4 SC.

Thinking I might start searching for a S&W 6946 as well; even though it's been discontinued for years, the sorta-kinda pseudo DAO interests me. Anyone have any experience with it, be it good or bad?

Edit:

SR9c, and lc9s. Like them both, and no problems other than the sr9c magazine having disengaged in a holster a few times. Blame that on the ambi safety. I just prefer the Walther PPQ and the PPS.

Me too! My wife gave me a PPS for my birthday/anniversary yesterday. I've been dry firing it as much as possible (with snap caps of course) since putting 50 rnds through it yesterday.

Well I wasn't planning on anything this year but........ I've got a Taurus Tracker 990 on the way. SS and 6 1/2" BBL.
   I'm not even close to being set up for reloading yet, so since I need scope practice for my hunting pistol, I thought I'd save a little cash and shoot .22's. I've also got a Bushnell trophy XLT (same as on my .44)  on the way so I hope I get more used to shooting that scope I know, I know, how's that saving cash. But hey I get a new pistol and the math works for me
     To make matters worse, I dropped by an LGS to get some .22's. Did a price check on a couple pistols. Both were out of stock for him but when he can get them.....
CZ SP-01 .9mm $600 OTD
CZ 97B $620 OTD
   So I think I'm saving up one of the two (or both)

I've heard the Webleys are even nicer than the Enfields. I have to start looking to find a box or two of .38 S&W before I can try it out. The No2Mk1* has the bobbed hammer for double action only use (and still has the early WWII wood grips).

Unfortunately, I was greedy and got seduced by both a Sig P938 Equinox and S&W 6906. When my wallet bounces back I'm going to look at a 75B. After that, an STI Guardian (or maybe in reverse order if the price is right...)  That'll be quite a while, though (like CHRISTMAS...)

Does my new to me Izzy count.
It is an IZH46 not an M but it does not matter it is a fantastic practice tool.
I shoot it more than all more "regular" handguns combined, something about the neighbors objecting if I set up targets in the back yard and firing off the 97BE SA.

I practice with this at 10 meters and 25 yards, This is a fantastic tool to hone your skills.
The 11" barrel and 430 fps pace, makes you focus real hard on follow through on your shots. If not you pull the shot everytime.

I had it only a few days and had to start modifying the grips on it, now they fit my big paws. I literally cannot fit the palm rest as my hand extends all the way to the base of the grip. List of to do's is to partially stipple the grips, make a palm rest that will fit my hands, and refinish the grip .

When I listed my Cajunized CZs for sale recently, I fully expected to be left with one but they all sold... this put me in a position to pick up something new :) I realized I wanted to give polymer another shot.

The short list I started with was a CZ P-07, a Walther PPQ or an H&K VP9. I couldn't get comfortable with the P-07 so the field narrowed to the Walther or the H&K. The only thing the Walther had going for it in my book was a marginally better trigger - for my needs the VP9 trumped it in every other way so it was an easy choice: I went with a VP9.

First time out with it my groups halved. Dang! I guess I'll keep it ;-)

Ya I ordered some from underwood and it was 2.60 I believe a round.

That's alright tho I'll get setup to reload for it and get it under 20 cents a round. I wanted a big bore but don't need all that power I hear 13grs of unique behind a 440gr bullet is very pleasant to shoot.

Picked up my Sig P239 this afternoon, Nitron finish with fiber/night front and Siglite rear sights. Ran 75 rounds through it, 50 of Freedom Munitions 100gr ammo and 25 Hornady Critical Defense. No problems and remarkably accurate. I think it could replace my Ruger LCR as my small carry gun of choice. It's rather surprising how small and light this pistol is, weighs about the same as my LCR and as you can see in the photos, it's smaller. The extended magazine in the photo holds 7 rounds and the flush fit mag holds 6.

Hi Tok36,
It is an air pistol for .177 cal pellets far more accurate than anyone can do justice, used in competition 10 meter air pistol competitions.
Not in my case as I could never shoot that well. But I am always working on it.

Thanks!  I've seen several of these over the last couple of months and have been contemplating whether I really wanted one or not.  I also seen these go for nearly as much as a NIB PCR which is crazy.  But I think it's cause it is different then what is being offered and knowing that it was used by a country's national police much like the desirability of a firearm that can be proven used by our own FBI.

I own a Phantom and BD Police, and just love how both feel and work.

Ok, so today I went to my LGS and picked up a CZ 2075 Rami. I wasn't as excited as I thought I would be.
My little finger doesn't fit on the grip. I prefer that it does and have put Pearce Grips on my other magazines where needed.
But .... I did get to handle a CZ 75 Compact. Whoa ..... now that is my next gun .... maybe.

Can someone tell me if the CZ 75 Compact has the B (Block)?
I wouldn't have bothered too much but this last week I actually dropped my 75B in Brushed Stainless!!!  :-[ 
Luckily .... there wasn't one in the chamber and there was no visible damage to the pistol, magazine, or the even the tile floor in my bathroom. Yea.

Fact is, my pants were not really all the way up anyway as I was exiting the water closet (toilet).
I prefer the Galco Jak-Slide holster and after all these years and a Jak-slide for almost every pistol I own; this is the first time one has ever hit the floor.

So, since I do often keep one in the chamber I now figure a Block may be a good idea after all. After all, I am not getting any younger and my trips to the bathroom are more frequent than they used to be.

The CZ compact / P-01 /PCR models come equipt with firing pin blocks.

Here is an easy way to tell. If it has a hole in the rear of the slide it has an FPB (unless someone has removed it). The hole is for the roll pin that retains the firing pin in the FPB CZ's. The Non FPB models do not have the hole, they are designed differently and use a retaining plate at the back of the slide to hold the firing pin in place.

Here is a picture to illustrate. (The CZ97 in the picture has a FPB)

You guys are great!
Thanks for the valuable information and even the photo!

Yea, well I have the CZ bug. Had it for awhile and I don't mind. There is a Show here locally this week and now I will go with renewed interest looking for a CZ 75 Compact.

Thanks again, "Y'all."

Next handgun depends on how the interview I have on Friday goes in CA.  If I get the job, I have to snag an SP-01 Shadow before I move, because it might be my last chance.  O0 If I don't get the job, it will likely be an XD-S for summer carry in Texas.  Or if I end up being forced to move back 'home' to NY, my next handgun will be... nothing... for a long time while I wait for a pistol permit application to go through.  :-[

I like the XDs 45.
Not a fun gun to take to range but it carries and conceals easy.
Not fun because the grip is aggressive and it does have a hard recoil.
I especially like the paddle holster included in the kit.
It is adjustable and goes on and off the belt easy.

Picked up my Sig P239 this afternoon, Nitron finish with fiber/night front and Siglite rear sights. Ran 75 rounds through it, 50 of Freedom Munitions 100gr ammo and 25 Hornady Critical Defense. No problems and remarkably accurate. I think it could replace my Ruger LCR as my small carry gun of choice. It's rather surprising how small and light this pistol is, weighs about the same as my LCR and as you can see in the photos, it's smaller. The extended magazine in the photo holds 7 rounds and the flush fit mag holds 6.

How do you like the LCR? I am about to pick one up in .22Lr. Just for a trail/snake gun.

I'm overall very happy with my LCR. Been my primary carry gun for over 2 years, according to my shooting log, I've run 1250 rounds through it so far without a single problem. The grip really soaks up recoil, I normally carry Buffalo Bore 158gr +P LSWCHP, 125gr +P JHP ammo or Federal 129gr +P Hydrashoks. They are very controllable in this gun, my S&W 442 is brutal to shoot using the same ammo. I practice with a 148gr HBWC over a mild charge of Bullseye, it's reasonably accurate and I can shoot 50 rounds without stressing my hands. Normal range session is 50 rounds of target ammo and 10 to 20 rounds of defense ammo.

I had a 642, so basically the 442 in a different finish.  The +P rounds out of that where quite brutal to shoot.

I am sure I will have no problem slinging .22 down range  :D

Got the P250 C "freed" from layaway a little while ago, so it will be waiting when I get home in a few weeks. Now to finish working on the balance for the extended barrel, night sight P-07 Duty!

I also picked up a LNIB Gen 4 G19 w/N.S. and, put a couple of FNH pistols on layaway; a NIB N.S.-equipped FNS-9 and then a used FNP-9 DAO. Pardon the vendor-supplied pictures lol, you guys know I will put up better ones after I take delivery of them...

Today I went to a Gun Show in a neighboring suburb near Houston, (Pasadena, TX.).
I was looking for a CZ 75 D Compact, P-01, SP-01, or  something along those lines.
There were several to choose from and I decided on the CZ 75 P-01 Cal 9 Lugar NIB. In fact, the seal wasn't even broken on the case.
The P-01 makes #4 after the P-07, a CZ 75 B in Brushed Stainless, and a CZ 97 B.
I choose this to use as my primary concealed carry. I have been switching off too much lately between a few of my favorites.
There were several choices available but in the end I chose the P-01 with the rubber grips, the rail, and the alloy frame.

Picked this up in a trade this morning. I don't know much about these yet. It has 1/61 on the left side of the slide.

That appears to be a Post War pre-P1 Walther P38, of which I own two of.  Mine were German Police trade in Pistols.
Yours may be that also, or a Commercial P38.  Both German and French Police Trade in Pistols came into the USA about two decades ago.
Your Pistol is not a P1, as it lacks the frame re-enforcement bolt in the frame.

(http://www.hunt101.com/data/548/3949P38s_3.jpg)
WWII P38 and 2 Post War P38's

Also note that mine have proven accurate and reliable, but I have found post War P38/P1 Magazines to vary considerably in quality.
Also inspect the twin Recoil Spring Guide Rods for wear.  As some were plastic, they can become very worn.
I replaced my plastic Recoil Spring Guide Rods with ones made of Steel.

Oh no! They have one in green?
Went to the range today. Put about 200 rds through the P-01. Function and accuracy was flawless. I have decided that this will be everyday primary carry.
Just feels perfect in my hand.
The other pistol I took today was a BHP that I just put Hogue finger groove rubber grips on. Figured it would be a nice homage to John Browning to shoot the CZ P-01 and the BHP. The BHP is one of those that recently became available from some foreign country was up-grading. My brother bought 3 of them and this one was Parkerized. It was a gift. I love it and with the Hogues it doesn't slide in my grip and bruise my hand anymore. All in all a very successful day.
Really love the CZs. Wonder which one I will get next?
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: hrdguera on June 08, 2015, 10:22:38 AM
Ok, so today I went to my LGS and picked up a CZ 2075 Rami. I wasn't as excited as I thought I would be.
My little finger doesn't fit on the grip. I prefer that it does and have put Pearce Grips on my other magazines where needed.
But .... I did get to handle a CZ 75 Compact. Whoa ..... now that is my next gun .... maybe.

Can someone tell me if the CZ 75 Compact has the B (Block)?
I wouldn't have bothered too much but this last week I actually dropped my 75B in Brushed Stainless!!!  :-[ 
Luckily .... there wasn't one in the chamber and there was no visible damage to the pistol, magazine, or the even the tile floor in my bathroom. Yea.

Fact is, my pants were not really all the way up anyway as I was exiting the water closet (toilet).
I prefer the Galco Jak-Slide holster and after all these years and a Jak-slide for almost every pistol I own; this is the first time one has ever hit the floor.

So, since I do often keep one in the chamber I now figure a Block may be a good idea after all. After all, I am not getting any younger and my trips to the bathroom are more frequent than they used to be.

The CZ compact / P-01 /PCR models come equipt with firing pin blocks.

Here is an easy way to tell. If it has a hole in the rear of the slide it has an FPB (unless someone has removed it). The hole is for the roll pin that retains the firing pin in the FPB CZ's. The Non FPB models do not have the hole, they are designed differently and use a retaining plate at the back of the slide to hold the firing pin in place.

Here is a picture to illustrate. (The CZ97 in the picture has a FPB)
(http://i.imgur.com/IdjXBmL.jpg)

On another note: Terry MC, thank you for the info. Interesting pistol.

Ok so here is another question for you.
What is the hole with the vertical pin visible just in front of the beaver tail?
Some say it denotes a Military or Police pistol but that still doesn't explain what it is actually for?
Sorry if this has been asked before.

Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: cntrydawwwg on June 08, 2015, 10:44:19 AM
That's the hammer pin retaining pin. When you pull it apart you may need that hole to push the retaining pin out.
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: Tok36 on June 08, 2015, 11:08:21 PM
Indeed, the pin in question stops the hammer pin from backing out. It is accessible once the sear cage is removed from the frame.

Nope!  Have never tried the ProMags in a P38 or P1.  You might try shooting it with your ProMags to see just what happens before buying any additional Magazines.
Sometimes you can rehab a ProMag Magazine by just replacing the Spring with a Wolff Spring.

So for now, I don't know which one to pick up.
I know, this is a CZ forum but which of these 2 guns would you guys pick up?
I have shot already the full size SP-01 tactical and the Shadow but shoot the compact just the same as his big brothers?

I would go for the CZ SP-01 over the Glock 19 - CZ ergonomics, DA/SA hammer fired design win for me.

How will this gun be used? A G19 is a good gun but not particularly ergonomic compared to a CZ compact. The CZ is heavier to carry though.

My CZ compact shot every bit as good as the SP-01 I had. Both guns had the CGW treatment and the compact had the best trigger of all of my CZs.

And yes the ergonomic from the CZ are much better then from the Glock.
The CZ is a little bit heavier but that's not a problem for me.

You might consider a RAMI.  Very concealable, good capacity and very accurate for such a short barrel. Plus, the alloy frame makes it a bit lighter for carry while still being heavy enough to make shooting it a pleasure.

As Birds Away said the Rami is an excellent choice, my wife still lets me shoot mine from time to time, the rest of the time it is always on her person.
 
Another great choice that is just as light as a Rami and the size of a CZ75 compact is the Tristar C100. light weight about the same as the plastic guns with an alloy frame and the CZ shooting characteristics for unbelievably low prices.
I really like mine, (it is my daily carry gun) I have it heavily modified for about the cost of some stock CZ's or glocks for that matter.

If it was me ... I would buy both of them.
One first and the other in layaway? Whatever works.
You can never have enough CZs.
As for the Glock 19; I have one slightly modified. I really like it. For me just not enough room in the trigger guard or maybe just the ergonomics of the gun. My trigger finger doesn't like the serrations and the distance between the finger and the trigger guard. It shoots great especially with the reduced trigger pull.

The Glock 19 I have seen is also slightly modified, lighter trigger pull, a short reset and truglo fiber-optics sight.
Some consider to get the CZ Rami but I have not seen one yet in the local gunshops I have visited, but it's a nice looking gun though. :)

Well I thought it was going to be a Ruger Alaskan .44 mag. ( in the process of ordering one through a local dealer)
  But...... I walked into the sporting goods store to get a cargo net. On my way out I quickly glanced at the used pistols. Saw a used P-01, one mag no case. So... My next is a P-01 '08, hardly looks shot, don't think it's ever been in a holster, just a couple nicks.

Thanks FJ.  Some Cajun goodies will be in the future. My Rami is my carry pistol. This may get some winter carry but for now it doesn't have a purpose. Maybe if the wife starts shooting it will be her range pistol. Always mine of course, but she can borrow it.

Ordered a SP01 tactical thru my lgs. Could have got it about 50$ cheaper before fee online, but figured  "support your local lgs" for once. Well, when I went to pick it up, he wrote it up for 715. Had to remind him what he had quoted me. Still paid 673. Cant blame him for wanting to make a bigger profit, but come on now. Still very happy. Took it out yesterday, and shot it with my 226. Wow! Impressed. I had already cajunized and dryfired about 1000 times. Racked the slide about 150 times. Still got 2 ftf in the first 50 rounds fired, but after that, the next 200 were flawless (and bleeped accurate). It beat my 226 for accuracy. Not by much, but it did. Next range session will be P09 vs SP01. Cant wait  ;D

Just picked up my next one today.  This is the CZ that I was looking for when it all started, and which has been eluding me for years.  It was produced in 2012 and apparently was found in the CZ-USA warehouse recently, so they threw in a set of full checkered cocobolo grips and a P-01 mag before they sent it out to my dealer.  A NIB CZ 75D Compact PCR!  And he also had 7 Scorpion 30 round mags that I kindly took off his hands since I have been unsuccessful in getting them online!

My Dad just passed along this H&R Premier 22 Rimfire to me. He bought it from an old Navy buddy who needed some money back in the early 60's. I think he paid less than $10 for it. It is patent dated Oct. 8, 1895. From what I have read, it could have been manufactured anywhere from 1905 to 1941. It's a bit rough, and the hand-to-ejector star interface is screwed up, so the cylinder doesn't always rotate properly. I will be trying to locate parts to get it fixed up and shootable.

Three new kids I gotta feed....

Scored my second (old but NIB) CZ 100. Paid a lil' more than I probably should've @ $425, but I couldn't let it get away, being that they are so highly sought after. ROTFLMAO!

Also picked up a LNIB Gen 4 Glock 19 from a vendor in New York that came with 3-10 rd mags, three finger rest Pearce extensions, installed Mepros and Talon grips, and an extra recoil spring/guide rod for $450.

Finally, snagged a new P250C with Mepros from Bud's for $443, then swapped the FCG into the Compact Small grip module I snagged a while back.

Identical to my other one and, every other one I've handled. Actually seems to have a little less overtavel, but that could be due to being brand new also.

I have one of those and it's been great, so far.  That said, I am more inclined to carry it's larger sibling, an older Taurus Gen 3 PT111.
There are times, I can't conceal the slightly thicker PT111 though.

Nice buys.
I got one of the BHP only the one I got had been Parkerized. I put a Hogue rubber grip on it (with the finger grooves) and I really like it.
Before the Hogue the hammer was biting my hand. With them it doesn't.  I guess it doesn't slide around in my hand anymore.
Either way I am pleased.

For striker fired I'd say check out the VP9 also. Best striker fired pistol I've ever owned, hands down.

My next will either be a suppressor-ready P-09 ... or perhaps a 9mm 1911 if I can get over the capacity limitation and am in a position to afford a good one: WC or Nighthawk maybe?

My initial thought was to get the P09 of course, but then I handled a M&P and the ergonomics really surprised me. I'll have to go to a LGS that has both in stock and compare them side by side.

I've never looked at a PPQ. Thanks for the suggestion!

I keep telling myself I don't need it, but keep going back to look at pictures of the pistol. I am afraid I am hooked.

Went to my normal shop this afternoon to order a CZ 1911A1. The owner had a really good deal ($850 delivered) on Remington R1 Carry Government size models. Ordered one of those instead. Looks like I'll have a 3rd R1 variant on Wednesday. I was a bit peeved he'd sold out of the CZ-97Bs he had in stock, 9 of them in 5 days.  I'd put aside funds for the 1911 and CZ-97B, guess I'll wait for a restock on those.

Stopped in one of the local gun shops this afternoon. They had a CZ97 BD in the case, for the first time in several months. I tried to resist. I even left that store and drove to Cabela's. Next thing I know, my car drove me back to the other store (a mind of its own). So now I have a deposit on a CZ97. I have a few days before it finishes its sentence in DPRI gun-purgatory and I can go bring it home.

As long as it doesn't drive me to other places to go and spend too much money between now and when I can get the 97. My computer has been acting up the last two days, so I will probably need to replace it soon (goes into a screen saver nap that can only be interrupted with the power button).

After all of the talking, I finally bought a used CZ P-09 today. I would have never guessed that I would like a poly framed gun this much  ;D There is nothing that I don't about this gun, except maybe it's appetite for 9mm ammo. I've never went through a 100 rds that fast before ;)

Got a CZ 97B, CZ 75B in Brushed SS, P-07 Duty, and P-01.
Guess there is one of these at the next GS that is calling my name!

Taking the plunge in a few weeks and gonna get a Sphinx SDP Compact Alpha. Everytime I go home to my one LGS that has them, as well as when I can find one out on the road, I find myself handling them more and more to the point I have to get one so that I can actually shoot it. Did the same thing when I got my first attraction to the P-07 Duty a couple of years ago!

Thinking a P-09 is going to need to join the family as well to round things out. Can't have lil' brother 07 and the rich cousin Sphinx all by their lonesomes!

Well.......I wasn't sure what my next was going to be but I was fairly sure it was going to be a compact to go with my new SP01 Tact, so I stopped in at my LGS, they have quite the selection of CZ's in stock  8) almost to many. (the SP01 shadow target II was very distracting)
Anyway I'm there to look at compacts !!!  "Stay focused"

So the salesman lays them all out for me
Ramy
75 compact
Pcr
P01
Even a stingray c for comparison

Ramy - to small for me
75 compact - a little on the heavy side
Pcr - perfect
P01 - perfect

I really would be happy with any of the 4 but I like the tactical rail and the de cocker, so P01 it is. I planned on going back tomorrow with cash and buy it, but on my way home I decided to stop by this pawn shop I'd heard so much about and all I can say is holy crap, (gun heaven) they had 10 times the guns of any shop I'd been in and apparently twice as many in the back room, at this point I'm on overload and ready to go home when I spot a gently used P01 with 2 mags and the factory case for $80 less than my LGS, so I pulled the $100 I had in my wallet to put it on a 90 day hold, now the only decision is buy it tomorrow or continue to shop for a better deal.

I could not stop at one ,I bought a Beretta 84 B used needs some tlc, I am leaving in a couple minutes to shhot it, then I will tear it down and correct the finish issue when I get back to the shop. Second I have a Grand Power P1 Ultra coming from Buds Gunshop .com along with two extra mags -found those at J&G's,can't wait to shoot that one . I was having control self control issues this past week so what did I stumble into ,a CZ 40B with two mags. I could not resist it ,worked out a final price with them yesterday ,told them I had to think about it ,well I have have it so I will call them back when they open today and get that. I have one other one on my radar the Canik TP9V2,since I already have the TP9sa with 5 mags that one is a no brainer at $329.00 and uses the same mags.I will need to take a break for a while from pistol buying. Off to the range now.

I currently have 3 CZ's, P-07, 75b and SP-01 Tact all 9 mm, and all have some CGW upgrades. The P-07 has the entire works from CGW. My go to is SP-01 Tact, and what a awesome weapon. Would like to add a fourth, but they do not make it...yet. I would like to purchase a CZ 97b with ambi-decocker. Being a left-handed shooter, an ambi-decocker is a must. At this point, the closest I can get is a 97bd. I emailed David at CGW several days ago to see if this model could be modified to accept an ambi-decocker and he said no. I guess I will have to wait until they bring this model out, if ever. That's ok. I will just continue to play with the CZ's I already have along with their cousins.

As a reformed 1911 shooter, I have been bitten by the CZ bug and all is well now in 9mm. I may still splash out for an SP-01 Shadow, possibly a Rami, but there are other good guns out there that many rave about.

Not into Glocks, but? Yet many seem to like the Sig 226,, the Walther PPQ, the HK VP-9.

Does anyone rate these on the bucketlist? I am liking the ambi features of the HK!

Never thought I would like plastic guns either, till the p09 and 7.

I can't say enough good about the VP9 - best pistol I have ever owned,  (Sorry CZs)

After some experimentation with the grip panels the VP9 fits me perfectly and it shoots like a laser. :)

For me it is now the gun all others are measured against.

My Grand Power P1Ultra MK12 arrived this afternoon from buds outstanding price and i am already trying to find an excuse to go to the range. You are really getting a lot of value for your money on this one. Wish I had ordered more than two extra mags and i wish they were here already as well. The onlt thing I did not care for is the color of the fiber optic front sight, I can't see the red so I already switched it out to green. For under $700 you get an outstanding trigger with a seriously short rest shorter than any Cz I have ever owned. I had one generic grand power several years ago a stock one and I was very impressed with that gun. This blows that away, this is a pistol that I can compete with out of the box it won't ever need any upgrades. I just need to get a good holster. Now I have not even been to the range yet and I am planning for an Excaliber!

My last 2 have been S&W's, got a 915 and a 39-2 recently. Both were priced right, and add some variety to my humble collection of 9x19's. The 915 is a 15 rd doublestack, with a 4 inch barrel, blued slide, Trijicon sights (faint but visible) and aluminum frame. If my CZ 75 is a fullsize, then the 915 is a midsize.
I was looking to add a Star Model 30M to the mix, but came across the 39-2 at the same price and could not pass on it.

Poster above mentioned a short trigger reset; the Smiths are amazingly short on reset, maybe 1/8th of an inch.

It was purchased from an 81 year old man who says his wife is making him sell his guns because he is now "too old to have them". It has been sitting in his safe for 20 years. It's beautiful, and I am a very happy camper.

(http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy135/stmichps/CZ%2075%20D%20Compact%202.jpg)

Going to play with it for awhile to see how it handles, then probably send it to guy who is certified in applying Cerakote.

UPDATE:
Just got the CZ 75 Compact D back from Automatic Accuracy the other day.

Thanks wd.  Came across that one earlier. Picked up some cheap and easily removable paint from Wally World today to experiment with.  Only got white and bright orange to try.

I really like the CGW front FO during the day.  Where it is thin, it really stands out to me because of the daylight on each side when compared to the rear.  When it is dark, I have trouble seeing the front sight though.  Have been thinking about painting the area around the FO white.

Possibly a decent CZ-83. It's good not to have almost all of our surplus handguns dependent upon low-cost Russian 9x18 ammo. This could be vulnerable to politicians' future whims, or changing foreign policy.

Might also consider a CZ-75 Compact. Even aside from my CZ-82's superb ergonomics, the feel of the actual shooting gives such clear impressions of Czech precision and engineering.

I put Williams Fire Sights on mine and it's my best scoring handgun in "combat" league, not that I'm very good, but I get more Xs and points with it. Will never part with it.

You'll likely be very pleased with one. 5" is just right for balance and looks and sight radius.

Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: Wahoo1 again on November 05, 2015, 08:18:01 PM
Longer grip/frame without the old style's mag lip. It uses the same barrel as the P239 and holds the same number of rounds. Weight is roughly the same, it feels lighter due to the size and shape of the frame/grips. The factory G10 grips have the right texture for me. From what I understand it uses a modified version of the P239 magazine instead of the old style P225/P6 mags. I hope Sig makes a 357 Sig conversion kit for it.

Best way to describe the feel it's like a slim framed M11A1 or P229SAS.

My next long term project is a CZ75 compact long slide, AKA Shadow Compact. I jusst to find a old used compact host first and start making modifications on it. I am very excited, but finding an old used compact frame or surplus compact is proving to be difficult.
What is this shadow compact you are talking about. I have a pre-b compact that I need to do something with. Can you just slap a full sized 75 (shadow) slide on the compact frame?

Short reset trigger, night sights, Slightly shorter (1/8th inch) barrel and slide, redesigned frame and magazines. No more lip on the mag that sets in the middle of my little finger. Much lighter and smoother DA and SA trigger than my old P6/P225.

I am a CZ fanboy. Went to a FFL to pick up my latest Christmas present, a CZ-82 (thank you, laserdoc!) and saw my first SCCY.

Not much different in size from a CZ-82/83.  For $300 new, might find one in a Christmas stocking near me!


You're gonna love that CZ-82.  I do mine.  (Btw, thanks to posters on this site, I just got a Fobus MAK1 holster.  Fits the CZ-82 perfectly.  Highly recommend.)

The only Black Friday shopping I'm going to do tomorrow is for myself.  ;D Picking up a Taurus PT111 Millennium G2.  Pretty much the same as a Smith M&P or Springfield XD.  But hundreds of dollars less money.

Jumped in on the Lionheart Black Friday deal.  Ordered the LH9N-MKII in Patriot Brown.

Reading past experiences on the Black Friday deals they have run, I am guessing I should have in a couple of weeks.

Anyone interested, they are running the LH9 @ $399 including shipping until the November 30th.

How do you like your Alasksn? What caliber is it?
I contemplated on one in 44 mag but the ammo is so expensive. That's why
I chose the 3" .357 again.
Title: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: cntrydawwwg on November 26, 2015, 05:11:00 PM
I love it. It's .44 mag. Extremely accurate. Milk jugs at 50 yards.
    You're right about the ammo But I'm hoping to get into reloading soon. I've already got a press, just slowly getting my other stuff.
   I hunt (if I can ever find game) with a SRH .44mag, 9 1/2". So I picked up the Alaskan for a back up woods gun. Turns out it's a heck of a fun range gun.
    Id like to get a GP someday, but for now I've got my Smith Hi way Patrolman for .357. Although my wife seems to like the Smith, so there may be hope for me yet.
    Looking forward to hear what you think of the 3" version.

My gun budget is taking a huge beating right now, just picked up my Scorpion and a Spikes Crusader stripped lower. Both of those are going on Form 1s to become SBRs. Plus the 922r parts for my Scorpion, plus what it is going to take to build my AR-15, it will probably be about June before I think about a new handgun.

Most likely my next handgun purchase will be a CZ, as my Beretta 92A1 really made me fall back in love with DA/SA triggers. Most likely it will be some compact variant, would really like to have a CZ P-01

A 1953 Argentina Colt. Just picked it up this morning. Impulse buy. The sights are terrible, the finish is not great, and the trigger pull feels like about 24 pounds.  Serial number all match except for the magazine.

Nice.  I wanted it in patriot brown but they "sold out" about 3 seconds after the sale went live.  I write "sold out" because right after the sale ended they magically had the patriot brown back in stock.  I'm really digging the double action+.  I'm surprised nobody else has given it a shot.

So many pages here!  Have I already said how much I've been jonesing for an all steel compact?  Keep it stock except for occasionally swapping out the frame from my Matte Stainless!  If the compact slide works reliably with the SS frame, I may replace the sights on the Matte to include a FO front.  Just need to take care of bills, and be able to pay myself (relatively new company) first!

Since I got my wife that 75 Compact 9MM, I'm now carrying a gun that uses different magazines (P07 .40 S&W).

So, I've been thinking about a nice 75B in stainless steel.

Or, does the 85 use the same magazines as the 75?  If so, I might look for one of those.

I believe all of the full size guns except the TS can use standard CZ 75 mags. I know the mags are interchangeable between the 75 and the SP-01... And as I understand it, the 85 is essentially just an ambi 75 with a few internal tweaks.

Full size 85 and full size 75 use the same mags.  Compact 75 and full size 85 will use different mags.   HOWEVER full size mags will work in the compact, although hang out the bottom slightly more.

If you've never been in DJ's, you really need too  8), 10-12 display cases packed full and probably twice as many in the back room.

I have my carry choices now: CZ P-07 9mm and Walther PPS 9mm. So, I'm not sure what is really needed. A S&W Shield is nice, I have fired two different Shields and both were impressive. I'm not interested in a $650+ pistol, money is tight for a while. There is a used RAMI 9mm at the local range though... Something I lack is a longarm, maybe an AR or AK variant is in order?

The Sig 1911 is the best on the market IMO, if I were to buy one that would be it. I'm sure it will perform as good or better than the DW.

Sig's are nice, but if it were a choice between a Sig 1911 and Dan Wesson, my money would go to the Wesson in a heartbeat.

While the Specialist in Duty Treat is not inexpensive, it is one of the best values on the market in 1911's. All bar stock parts. Exceptional Customer Service.

You stated you were looking for a thin 9mm
Since I am not into Poly Gun, I don't think along those lines
Also, the 2075, it isn't thin, it's a Double Stacker, 1.3" wide
Where the Firestar is a Single Stack at 1.1", almost a 1/4 thinner

If you are looking for a thinner 9mm. Consider checking out Sigs re-release of the 225-A1

If you want something even smaller I had a 938 and really enjoyed it, just wanted more capacity.  It was a 7+1

I believe the 225 is a 8+1.

True, the 2075 is 1/5" thicker, but hey, it's a CZ.  FTR, I'm not a poly guy either, but I think if I'm going to carry I'd be better off with a small, thin, light 9mm, which led me to the Nano.   There are a lot of poly handguns that fit what I think I need - I just need to make it down to my LGS and check each out.  Thanks anyway DenStinett.

  I picked up the old model Walther PPS for $359 New Years Eve. It came with 7 & 8 round mags and I picked up a 6 rounder for it. With the larger back strap it fits my hand just right. I'm even liking the mag release, very easy to use with my trigger finger. I've only had it out once so far because of the weather, but so far I like it.

I don't know what it is about 1911 pistols. I hate them! They have cost me a small fortune over a period of about 40 years. They are overpriced for what you get. Now, everyone and his brother makes one. The euro guns are much more fun to shoot! 9MM Baby, and lots of them!

Here is my GP100 5" with new Altamont snakeskin rubber grips and Chig's curl ash inserts. I wanted something different than regular wood.

Just put a police trade-in M&P 45 Mid size w/night sights on layaway earlier today. No external safety or mag disconnect safety either! Will post pics after I pay it off in a few weeks.

For those not familiar with that specific model, pretty much the same exact dimensions as the M&P 9 full size, achieved by combining the M&P 45 full-size grip/frame and the 45 compact slide and barrel.

Not mine, but gives you an idea:

I'm looking at getting another pre-B 75. My son is coming of age (turns 21 soon), and though he enjoys shooting all of my pistols, he keeps coming back to my old pre B ... the one pistol I'd least like to part with. Ah well, it's a good choice, and the reasons he likes it is the reasons I do too.

Glock 17 Gen 4. Was shooting with some friends at a range in Las Vegas in September trying a bunch of pistols, and the range officer put a G17 in my hands. For the next 10 minutes I was making an ever increasing single hole in the bulls eye. Hmmm . . . I had always dismissed Glocks, and why would I ever want one since I have a P-09 as my plastic HD/competition pistol?

Picked it up at a local gun dealer in January. It's a fine shooter. Do I like it more than my CZs? No, but I like it as much, and I now understand why they are so popular. I'll still use my P-09 for IDPA, but the G17 is a lot of fun to shoot. I immediately put a set of Dawson sights on it with a fixed black rear and FO front. Makes a big difference. So far, I'll keep everything else factory, as I like the trigger pull out of the box.

 Picked up my Star Model B Super it appears to be in unissued condition. There are some minor storage dings, but the bore looks to be new and the whole pistol was filled with factory preservative grease. Bluing is complete, no wear on the sharp/expected areas. One of the magazines is new the other shows some very minor wear on the follower, but none on the body. The pistol has Spanish proof marks dating manufacture to 1972 there is also a 72 on the trigger guard. There are what I believe are Spanish Army proof marks on the barrel and frame.  The pistol is in much nicer condition than most recent imports I've seen. Not a bad deal for $290 out the door. I'm looking forward to shooting it Sunday afternoon. I've had a few offers from other members of the range where I shoot, may be sold before it gets shot.

That's a good way to describe the pistol. It is a single action, the trigger pivots like a High Power and the barrel link/locking system is also like a High Power.

Very Nice, Wahoo! I was at a gunshow last week, and one of those caught my eye. The price tag was $299, and it was nowhere near as nice as yours. The finish was rougher, and it had several dings and dents. Not knowing enough about them, I walked away. Seems like you got a sweet deal!

Had been looking for a 32 acp to use for new shooters (sisters and wife.) Stumbled across some NIB Beretta 81 Cheetahs that made their way into the US unannounced. I settled since the CZ 83 isn't made in 32 acp anymore and they're hard to find. Here's a pic of the one I got off of Buds.

My next handgun will be a pocket pistol, probably something in .380acp. I will need a discreet pocket pistol for when the weather starts to get warmer. I already have a CZ-83 in that caliber as my current primary so an added benefit to that is being able to use the same ammo. I will probably go with the Ruger LCP partly because of price and I because I feel it's been around long enough for all the bugs to have been worked out with the newer generation models which been improved over previous ones.

Every 3rd gen S&W I have shot has had the fastest most crisp reset I've ever seen. I own a 4506 and it is phenomenal. It functions flawlessly, only bad thing is when you carry it you feel like you're carrying a small block engine in your pocket.

Sig Sauer P230. A consignment gun at the local shop. Tag says unfired, and that looks to be correct. Someone has owned this for quite a while, since it is marked "W. Germany" on the slide (the P230 was replaced with the P232 in 1996).

Going to use this to make little videos to compliment all the written tutorials on smoothing the action and what not in the gun smithing sub forum. Next pictures and a range report will be of this thing Customized and Cajunized... In a week or so if my work and class load allows.

Thanks! I'm really excited to work on it. CZ Custom comp hammer, thin aluminum grips, extended firing pin, lighter hammer Spring, and some other goodies. Also going to drop the firing pin block so it will be like a pre B. Have the disconnector from CGW for pre B versions as well. I feel like a kid at Christmas!

As a side note I can immediately tell this has tighter tolerances than my 75 compact safety model. Curious to see what barrel lock up and accuracy.

Figure it wasn't too bad of a deal, especially since a .45 ACP model, and if I don't like it, I will simply get rid of it.

I can't get my Ruger LCR 327Federal away from the boss, she's decided it's the perfect purse or IWB carry gun for her. I have a 357 LCR, a Sig M11A1, and a PCR that are the regular carry guns. I want to try something smaller than the CZ or Sig and with a couple more rounds than the LCR. I had a S&W Shield 9mm, OK gun but the trigger was horrible, breaking at 7 1/2 pounds and gritty. The Kahr I tried was smooth and felt very much like my LCR's trigger.

Some form of Polymer handgun for carry purposes. I've been trying to buy my dads FNS-9 from him but he won't budge.

So maybe a poly CZ of sorts. Maybe a Glock or something. Who knows. But I have to obey my 3 month gun rule hahaha

I've shot the 9mm variant but if I end up not liking the FN I'll just sell it. Haha.

Next handgun was supposed to be a Kahr P9, the owner of the shop that was going to transfer it offer to buy it for resale at $50 more than I paid. I bought the P9 from CDNN on their "Leap Day" sale for $400. Ended up ordering a Springfield Range Officer Operator in 9mm to go with my Range Officer Champion 9mm. Both will be sent off, at some point, to the Springfield Custom Shop for 38Super conversions.

Took it out and tried a couple different loads. A medium load with plated bullets and a hunting load with Hornady XTP's.  Ran well with both.

I need to lighten the trigger a touch,,,, but I think I like it.

My son is big into 3rd Generation S&W.  So he suggested a 3913 when I was looking for a single stack 9mm.  I won this on GunAuction.com last week for a very reasonable price.  I'm loving it.  Eats everything I've fed into it and recoil is nil.

Psyop96, I bid on a 3953, but it got away from me!  Decided to go DA/SA instead.  If I had won the 3953, I might have sold my CZs and kept my HK LEMs.  I'm glad I'm keeping the CZs and will continue to go DA/SA.

Selling my 2 HK's has provided some good funds!!  I'll say this about HK - they have good resale value.

Here is my second S&W 3rd Gen purchase.  Check out the old school adjustable sights.  Ugly but really retro cool at the same time.  This one's a 5904.

After the very good results with my Range Officer Champion, I decided to go for another Springfield. Picked up a new Springfield Armory Range Officer Operator 9mm. US built pistol with 2 dot rear sight and fiber optic front sight. Polished the trigger, tweaked the sear spring, and replaced the main spring, now has a nice clean 3.6 pound break. Ran 50 rounds of my hand loaded 124gr ammo, 50 rounds of Winchester 115gr white box, 50 rounds of Aguila 124gr and 50 rounds of Blazer Brass 115gr. Reasonably accurate with the Blazer ammo and the Winchester, very good with my hand loads, and excellent with the Aguila stuff. Being an all steel pistol with a heavy 9mm barrel makes this a very soft shooting handgun. I need to try some 147gr ammo and some Freedom Munitions ammo I have in my stash. I'll likely replace the grips with a Raasco or Altamont set at some point.

My next came in last week. Kahr CM9. Going to be my cc when it gets hot and have to shed clothing.

I had one of those and a PM9.  Neat little gun.  I sold it to a friend and kept a PM-40 for carry.  Only 40 I have, and it is a handfull.  The 9 is better, LOL, but I don't shoot the 40 often, so it is OK.  CM-9 is great value, good gun.  Just give it a few rounds to loosen up some as it will be tight when you first shoot it. Any initial difficulties will clear up after a 100 rounds or so, I'm pretty sure.  At least that was my experience with three Kahrs.

Finally got to pick mine up the other day. FNS40 with 3 mags and night sights for 376 shipped. Went and put a couple hundred rounds through it the other day and it shoots great. I actually think I like shooting 40 more than 9mm. I'm actually able to conceal it pretty well too.

Well, since I got my CZ 1911 a while back (which I continue to love BTW) I have been Jones-ing for another 45 ACP.  Something good for the trail here in the east.  Something very dependable, and something a little different.  A replacement front sight is being installed on it today, so I should be able to post pics and relieve the suspense shortly...  ;)

I'm still looking at a cz75 but I am thinking about something striker fired as well.

Recently acquired a Springfield Armory XDS in .45. Yuck! I hated the thing. Sold it 2 days later. Only my second ever venture into the world of striker fired guns. There won't be a 3rd. Another CZ or a S&W 640 Pro Series is on my horizon.

Also had an XDS in 45. Nothing good to say about it. It went away with no regrets.
Everything I currently own is hammer fired, steel or alloy frame.

I actually traded an M&P45 for my P-01, feel like I ripped the guy off. I wanted so hard to like a striker fired gun, and the S&W was the best of that particular litter IMHO. I've not missed a striker, ever, but I know lots of folks who swear by them. But I've always been a revolver guy, so a hammer is a familiar thing. That said, my next one would most likely be a P-09, or a 686 Pro Plus.

My cm9 has been at my side for 3yrs straight. Excellent gun, wouldn't leave home without it.

My next hangun will be a CZ-82 to replace the one that was stolen from my car, along with a smashed window. (Pretty sure I know who did it) I liked it for carry so much I bought a Crossbreed holster for it. (This post will get me one closer to be able to get into the class ads here.)

So my plan to post pics has been delayed due to my gunsmith being ill. I am hoping that he recovers quickly..  Mean time I'm going to stop being cute and simply answer the question.

An S&W 625-8 Performance Center 45ACP with a tritium front sight and Hogue rubber grips. 

I think the next one after that will be an OD P01...

I will post a pic once they're both in hand.

After you've shot it for a bit, I think you'll like it.  I've very much liked the one's I've shot and own and operate it's Turkish Clone, the Canik TP9V1.

Oh, I know I'll like it. I bid on it because I fell in love with the trigger on a used model for sale at my LGS - they were asking $500 used for the .40. My winning bid was $425 including shipping for 9mm new in box (I wanted the 9).

I got a great deal on an outstanding gun... but it's still only one of a half-dozen guns in my safe. It's in the same niche as my PCR, except it won't take my existing stock of magazines. So even if I am totally in love with it... I can still only shoot one gun at a time.

I just picked up my next one.  A standard P-07 in 9mm at Academy.  I needed another defensive/class/new shooter gun without a 3 lb trigger and without being too large.  This one will be sold to a new shooter later on, my bet.  Never even seen one up close until today at Academy.  Looks a lot like a P-09 except shorter in two dimensions!

Eastman, I think the P-07 is an excellent choice for your demo kit.  Not too small, not too large.  Just right.  I've had one since Friday and have already been to the range twice to shoot it.  Its a perfect size for a home defense/car gun.

I already have the SP-01 (and I am surprised at how much I love a .40). Looks like this (GunBroker listing photo):

Never thought I would say this, but I do not see another purchase for a long while...maybe ever.  I thought I would buy a CZ75c or PO1 but to tell you the truth I like my Tri Star  100 so well, I see no reason to get another gun.  Between the C100 and my SD9VE and a few other pistols and one Marlin .22 rifle....I think I am set.  After getting use to the C100 and the sights, I do not even see a reason to replace the sights.  Trigger never was a problem and is getting smoother and smoother ever time it is fired.  Never....never thought the Tri Star would impress me like it has.  All I was looking for was a backup 9mm in case I had a problem with the S&W and needed to sent it in for warranty work.  What I found was a great pistol that someday I know my son will be glad to have it passed down to him.

I picked up a CZ P07 Duty from GB.  She should be in early next week at the latest.  My little family is growing again.  I have a hankering for an old 85 and am on the hunt. The roster is looking pretty solid.

CZ 97B .45
CZ SP01 Phantom 9mm
CZ P09 .40
CZ P09 9mm
CZ 75B .40
CZ 85 9mm
CZ 75B 9mm
CZ 75 pre-B 9mm
CZ 75 Compact 9mm
CZ 75 PCR 9mm
CZ 75 P01 9mm
CZ 75 P07 Duty 9mm
CZ 2075 RAMI 9mm
All of the above are (or soon will be) fully Cajunized, with the exception of the yet to arrive P07, PCR and 85.  I will probably order parts for that today.
I only need a few more.  :D

One of my local gun shops got a shipment of SP-01 Tactical 9mm pistols in today. After picking up the SP-01 .40 last weekend and having a P-07 on the way, I'm sure all of this SP-01 shipment will be gone long before I have the cash in hand.

I shot the P99 yesterday, very nice. The DA is what I expected and pretty cool on a striker pistol. The SA was great as well. The recoil was hardly there, I was shooting Freedom Munitions 124 gr. The gun is dead on where I aim it. I might have to find a compact now.

I also have a shotgun, a carbine, and a scoped hunting rifle in large caliber.  That's all I'll ever need.

If you make a list of the features you need and want, and the capability of the firearm, then you should be able to find the perfect one.

When I got my CZ the choice was between it and SIG and Ruger.  The CZ was easier to field strip.  That was about the only major difference.  The CZ was extremely hard to find however.  I had to search all up and down the State.  Found one in the far north and the other in the far south.  The guy down south wanted more and was playing bidding games.  The guy up north just wanted to get rid of his because he found out he did not like the 45ACP caliber.  I went north and bought it from him.

I used to think the same thing! ;)  CZ's are extremely habit-forming.  Buy one and you'll want another...and another...  1911's are the same way for me.  I don't think there's such a thing as having too many CZ's and 1911's.  I just brought this one home today!

That Lawman is a sweet looking pistol. STI makes bleep good guns. Have you shot it yet?

Semper Fi back to you also Kol.

It does make sense to have two of exactly everything so that you can cannibalize the one to keep the other one going if you need to.

I loved my G/I issued Springfield 1911A1 while I walked my post with it.

The modern CZ 97B's are more advanced in that the triggers are single and double action.

That way I don't need to futz with either cocking a hammer from Condition #2 or flicking off the safety from Condition #1.

I can just do the long pull on the trigger and get the first round off that way.

So many guns I want. Here's my short list, in no particular order. Whichever one I get my mitts on first will be next.

Sig P210 Target
Sig P226 X-Five Supermatch
CZ Shadow 2
STI DVC 3 Gun
Also trying to narrow down a first bolt action rifle... But the thread title says handgun, so I'll leave it at that.

Picking up a Dan Wesson 15-2 with 4 and 6 inch barrels this afternoon. Now I need to find  2 1/2 and 8 inch barrel sets.

Post by: Wahoo1 again on May 29, 2016, 05:36:43 PM
Picked up my DW 15-2 around noon, stopped at a local range and  ran 50 rounds of mixed 38 Special and 50 mixed of 357 Mag through the revolver. I'm very happy with the accuracy with the 4 inch barrel and OK with the 6 inch. The 4 inch shot best groups with 125gr SJHP 357 ammo (Federal 357B) and worst with 180gr Keith style 357 hand loads. The 6 inch did best with 158gr LSWC 38 Special hand loads and worst with 125gr SJHP 357 (Federal 357B). The 6 inch did fairly well with 180gr Keith style 357 ammo, but didn't seem to like lighter bullet 357 and 38 Special loads. I need to try some of my 140gr hunting loads out of the 6 inch barrel.

Not too bad for a $425 revolver.

NICE GUN! You have one made at the monson plant which is more desirable than the Palmer made guns.
If you have not already been there be sure to visit http://www.danwessonforum.com

The Dan Wesson model 15's are great guns, I bought my first model 15 for $350, but it was not with me for long.
I couple months after I bought it I found a 715 (stainless) 4" with the VH barrel (full underlug like our 4".)
I bought it, sold the model 15 and still have it today along with an 8" VH barrel with built in scope rail on top.

Looks just like mine but mine is a 10mm Javelina.  New mags and a different weight spring and it runs like a champ.

Cool, I've never seen a Javelina.  Was the recoil spring in your gun kind of warped?  The spring in mine looks like it is too long, and bending sideways when in the slide.  The magazine included with mine is crap.  The feed lips are far enough apart that the rounds (I've only checked with snap caps so far) will pop out if I load more than 2 or 3  :o.  I bought a Kimber Tac-Mag (feels solid) and have a Tripp 10-rounder on the way.  I might pick up some Mec-Gars, too.
Title: Re: What's Your Next Handgun?
Post by: bugboy on June 05, 2016, 11:16:44 PM
Spring seemed to be too heavy.  I took the spring from my Citadel .45 and it worked well. 

My mag was an Eagle with some kind of ribbon spring set up.  You had to download the mag by 3-4 rounds to get it to feed right.

I got a MecGar and another brand and they both work normally.

Ribbon spring, like in an old-timey rifle magazine?  Is the recoil spring you are using for a longslide or gov't model?  The Mec-Gars that I am looking at have a welded baseplate--that means it cannot be removed, right?

1911 floorplates aren't removable (usually) so there is a different process to remove the follower and spring.

I found that the springs in the magazines for my Shield are pretty stiff. It's pretty hard to get the last round in the magazines. I plan on loading both magazines to full capacity and letting the sit in the gun safe for awhile. I'm sure they will loosen up.

Just gotta follow the experts Have since swapped out the main spring for a lighter #17 from Wolff. DA is nice and light now. The sights shoot a tad low for me. Only real negative is the mag disconnect and still not a fan of slide mounted safety. Might have to continue along the experts' route to a DAO 6946 someday

My next gun will be a S&W model 640 5 shot .357 magnum J frame used, pre-lock, hammerless. I'm a sucker for S&W's.

Picked up my new Colt 1911 Government in 38 Super last night. Did a basic trigger/action job and installed my preferred arched main spring housing with an Ed Brown Competition mainspring this morning. Test fired with a box box of PPU 130gr round nose ammo. 100% function and acceptable accuracy with what I'd call adequate at most ammo. I plan to run a few boxes of my reloads and some Fiocchi factory stuff through the pistol next. I'll run some CorBon and Buffalo Bore 124gr defense ammo after I shoot at least 200 round nose loads.

I haven't decided what other, if any, mods I'll do, other than a different set of grips.

Being in California, there's not much I really want that I can get.
Once i get my federal license for my EMT, I will most likely get a Glock 17. $398 + 3 mags is a steal.
I find it funny how being a "first responder/EMT" I get discounts on everything law-enforcement related, even guns  ;D

I told my friend in Nevada to either get a HK P30L, or a VP9 / VP40, and when he moves back here to Cali, he'd sell me his.
Anyone who have these/know about them, have any recommendations?

I recently spent a year shooting a VP9 exclusively. Overall it was a great experience. The gun was good to go out of the box, although I did put Trijicon HDs on mine.

I switched back to CZ after the year - I just prefer a TDA gun, especially for appendix carry.


ETA: just my thoughts but I would say the P30 needs trigger work out of the box to be satisfactory. That may be my CZs talking though LOL

Ok may sound kinda crazy, but I'm looking at getting a CVA Scout single shot pistol, stainless, in 357 mag. This would be a "handgun hunting" experiment for deer and hogs. Only issue I have is there's not much reviews out there so if any has some experience with these please chime in. Kinda on the fence so to speak.

I'm lusting after the Wilson Combat Beretta 92G SD Brigadier, but since I own a 92FS Brigadier I'll just install the Wilson Combat parts myself. I'll then have Wilson do the "G" conversion and barrel bob to my slide. I'm not a fan of railed frames as a rule, but the Wilson just looks amazing.

I'd be happy with a Wilson Beretta 92G Compact as a hold over or compliment to the EliteII, but there's just aomething about the two-tone finish (among other things) with the EliteII, so it'll remain on my list. They just don't pop up often at reasonable prices.

Excellent topic! CZ people don't walk around with their nose in the air!
Christmas is definitely coming up fast. Last Christmas, I bought enough guns to take my three sons shooting. They're all adults mind you, 30 to 41 yrs. old! I bought a mish-mash of styles and characters. My youngest loves his 1911 in 22 cal. and he's a bleep fine shot. The two older boy-chicks lives are very busy and they've enjoyed free access to my gun case.
So, I decided to buy two milsurps and customize them to the boys character. Yesterday we all got to play with the recent milsurp, a Beretta 92S. I did not expect such a nice gun in a milsurp deal. The 92 is beautiful! I'm sort of pissed they all shipped without any wrapping at all! Just about 500 guns per case, stacked loosely.
I swear if they'd wrapped them in butcher paper even, the lot could have been considered good to excellent! Shot about 150 rounds without a squirt of oil! Actually the piece looked like it had enough oil internally.
Sights are fixed but ineffective. Very low profile and hard for my old eyes to see well! The report seems a bit snappy compared to my CZ75 but by no means harder... just a bit more precise. There was minor holster wear along sharp edges but the scratches were very fine. Even the grip was in better shape than expected.
My oldest son loves everything Japanese and does in fact have a beautiful Japanese-American wife, and 1.5 handsome boys.
He'll get the Beretta painted flat black with a silkscreened Samurai Warrior on faux Ivory grips! I think I would like to try the gun frame, and slide in a Red Laquer with gold plate accents... but that would look good in a case and get you many snickers at the range.
After this one, I'm looking for a STAR, or a Hi-Power clone. I want to buy a milsurp CZ but if everyone has a different gun, it will foster sharing and increase everyone's firearm education.
What would you guys recommend for a family hobby? We currently have my CZ75b, the Beretta 92s, a Kahr 40 none of us like, ATI 1911 in .22 cal. my youngest is not inclined to let go of, a Heritage 6 gun in .22 cal. and a black powder 1858 .44 cal. Remington. I would think a STAR super B 9mm, or a hi-power clone.
Any suggestions?

For me, it's a PO1! It's just the sexiest gun I've ever seen! It has dignity or mute Gravitas, what ever you want to call it. It has reserved lines, effortless grace and with a high polished walnut grip, can stimulate your salivation glands! It would be the perfect gun for a modern James Bond!

I would dump the Kahr and buy a surplus FN H.P., CDI Sales has a bunch of worthy candidates cheap.The price is close enough to consider the real thing instead of a copy. Easy for me to say though, every time I look at buying an H.P., I think it over and buy another surplus 75. Each one is a little different. Regarding the Kahr, no point in keeping a gun nobody likes. Surplus guns are addictive!

I know ... buy both, but that's a NO-GO at the moment.

M&P Shield 9mm in a SmartCarry.  Shot initially low left...but with a small amount of dry fire time,,, shots are now as good as can be expected with a small pistol.

My P01 is not a good summer carry for me as I wear mostly gym shorts.  SmartCarry and the Shield seem ideal...after two weeks.

It's not really for me. I'm buying for my adult son's gift. I offered to buy any surplus gun he wanted and I'd paint and re-condition it. He just seems to love the look of plastic stuff. What can I say... Beauty is as good a motive as any other. I spent months reviewing my first pistol, spent a small fortune and ended up with a gun I can't hit the broadside of a barn with!!!
Luckily his taste sent him towards a good company. He want's a Ruger American. Not a bad choice! Cheaper than re-conditioning a worthy surplus gun, so I win out too!

For my next purchase I'm going to get either a S&W model 686 or 686+ .357 Magnum with a 3 inch barrel. If I can get a used pre lock 6 shot for a good deal I'll get it, if not I'll get a new 7 shot on the LE/MIL/First responder program.

I mentioned this was on order, but it came on Friday, so here's a few pics. CGW upgrades were just ordered so it'll be upgraded and shared in the CGW pic thread in a week or so. Really excited about this SP-01 Compact! (officially just stamped as a 75 Compact)

Snagged a Stoeger Cougar 8000 LT in a trade, and saw a great deal on a Beretta Cougar 8000 D at one of my LGS's, so onto layaway it went!

Those are very good guns, nice, weighty, almost no recoil, especially in 9mm. Just keep in mind, the barrel can be a tad fiddly with reassembly, but its pretty easy to pick up after doing it a couple times, and switching the mag release can be a real pain (If you're a lefty, like me.). I used to own one, but my dad grew rather fond of it after shooting it, and I decided to give it to him as a birthday present.

Next Gun: it was going to be a Colt Competition 1911, then I started looking at the CZ 97B and after some research decided I will go with the CZ. just this last weekend was at a local firearm auction and couldn't pass up the price on a new CZ 75B .40. got it for $370.00. wasn't on my list but you just cant pass up a deal like that.

I absolutely love my 75B in .40.  IMO the very best platform there is for that round.

Very Nice T-120, Poetical1!  8)  :)

Just acquired what I believe is a Rossi 351 .38 Special, made by Braztech/Rossi, used, from a friend who is going into an Assisted Living Complex, for Medical Reasons. As my usual penchant is for a high capacity 9mm or .45 ACP Semi-Auto, this is a bit out of the way for me, but not undesirable. I do own other Revolvers, but I only occasionally shoot them.

This Revolver is largely in great condition with the exception of the Factory Rubber Grips, which have somehow become discolored. I will be replacing them, most likely with the same Factory Grips, as I like their shape in my hand. Currently, I have them on Backorder from Rossi/Braztech.

(https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/images/80025_1.jpg)

Sorry for the Stock Photo, but I probably won't be taking any pics of mine till those Grips have been replaced.

Just bought my "next one."  It's a Ruger SR22.  I know a .22 pistol is something everyone should have in their safe, but I've never gotten around to it.  Read a ton of reviews lately, and just about every one was 4+ stars.  Broke down and got one.  Will go to the range soon.  Looks and feels fantastic.

I didn't purchase a new handgun but installed a decocker only on my Beretta Compact. This saved me from having to buy a G compact in the future (if they come out with one). So it is like having a new pistol.

My next ended up being a Sig P320RX that I was lucky enough to find at the last gun show. It is my only striker-fired gun at the moment and it is pretty sweet... but it really just made me want a P-09 now LOL

A P-09 will have to wait, though... my next will be a Ruger LCR in 9mm.

Have the following:
CZ 75 SP-01 (needs Cajun)
CZ 75 D PCR (Cajun)
S&W 29-6 .44 Mag
Ruger SP101 .357
Walther PPS M2

Debating on the following:
Glock 21 potential to go and upgrade to 460 Rowland
H&K P30
S&W or Ruger Shorter barrel .44 or .357 4-6"
AR 15
CZ 97

Fun buying guns, and adding to my collection, but I stop taking them to the range when I get a new one.  So a bit unsure what to go with next.

Well, I got my new "next gun". I fell back to my roots. Did some trading and wound up with something I am scared of! In practical terms, it is everything I hate! In real terms, it is everything I love! It is blued. It is SA. It only holds 7 rds. It is a safe queen, almost! It is the ultimate pistol for my generation.

Some may have guessed by now, but yes, it is a 1975 vintage Colt Gold Cup National Match 45ACP in immaculate condition that begs to be run like the race horse it is. I doubt it has seen 100 rds through it.

It is lightly sprung, so I gotta find some ammo for it or get a standard recoil spring, but I do intend to run it like it was built for, at least occasionally. O0

WoW, that is awesome. I never knew they made all that for them.

Mine did not come with a factory mag, so I ordered one stainless pony.

There are a number of things I dislike about mine as in lack of ambi safety, tang hammer and grip safety, plain black front sight that is pinned I guess. It adds up fast so I think I will just leave it in its virgin state. I already have a range queen in a polished stainless CZ75 fully tricked out.

Yeah the Series 80 Conversions are out there, but very hard to find, but your GCNM is a Series 70, and their 22 Conversions are very plentiful, but quite pricey

I did get one (blued) Colt Magazine when I bought my DGC, but I did buy 5 more

I didn't like a lot of things on mine either, so I have made a few "changes"
Custom fit, Fully Adjustable, Meprolight, Tritium Night Sight Set
Wilson Combat; Grip Safety, Hammer (with matched Sear and Spring), Disconnector, Barrel Link, Ejector and Mag Release
Hart's, Shock Reducing Guide Rod, with a Shok-Buff and a single Wolff X-Power Recoil Spring
Gunsite, Low Mount / Hi-Hold Thumb Safety
Colt, Matte Stainless, Slide Release
Colt, 1911-A1, Main Spring Housing

Do post about it over in the Clone Section, if you can.

I did - thanks.  I'm really enjoying it.  Got 2 more magazines and a loader (only $2.99) in from CDNN today.  This one just keeps getting better. :)

I HATE when I see something I MUST HAVE!. A Local shop had a Ruger GP100 1761, 3 inch 5 shot 44 Special, that was being delivered to a buyer. Now I need one.

You wouldn't actually put a Glock in a safe with that beauty would you?  Think of the inferiority complex the Glocks will get! ;)

I had one of those for a while and still would except I traded it off for a S&W 586 L-Comp.

Not a fan of Glocks, but I'm considering buying a Remington RP9 just to try something different.

Another beauty of a revolver.  Remington auto pistol?  After their debacle with the R51?  There are plenty of manufacturers with better track records on "new" designs.  If you want something different perhaps a Walther P99?

Ordered a 44 Special GP100 this afternoon and my favorite crack dealer   gun shop has 4 Beretta M9A3s in bound, 1 of them is now mine. Wilson Combat emailed and said my Brig-Tac will not be delivered until May. Next up the CZ P-10C and I think I'll hold off on the Remington RP9 for a while. Looking forward to comparing/shooting my SP-01 Tactical and the M9A3. If it turns out like  CZ-75 BD Police vs Beretta 92 Brigadier, everyone wins.

Three items need to be added to the CZ demo kit for 2017. Order will depend on when I can obtain each.

P-10c 9mm
Scorpion (pistol) 9mm
P-09 .40 (to replace the SP-01 Tactical .40 in the demo kit, since it is now a discontinued model)


That also means I can start thinking about what to tweak on the SP-01, since it doesn't have to remain stock anymore.   O0

The CZ P10c. Don't care if I get the black or FDE version. Whichever I can get hold of first.

CZ P-10 C or P-01 Omega Convertible... whichever I can find first, but I do plan on picking both of them up at some point!
