CZ wasn't an option I had thought of before, but that is a good one to consider.
but I would say Ruger is the most well rounded & economical choice in a few cases. from one company you can get a snub nose revolver, heavy barrel 22 auto, single action revolver, double action revolver, whether they're big bore or rimfire, cheap & reliable centerfire auto handguns, bolt actions, auto rifles in rimfire or centerfire, etc., etc., etc.
If only Mossberg made handguns, they would get my vote instead.
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
