Ha. It's not like these guys here are unfamiliar with the boomstick. And unlike the gang bangers, most of us probably know how to hold a handgun upright

Has anyone seen the Baby Eagle 2?

My god....

A .45 Model with a rail underneath...etc etc. Just an improved Jericho 941


10 + 1 Capacity...with polygonal rifling.


http://www.magnumresearch.com/Expand.asp?ProductCode=BE4500RS&1534-D83A_1933715A=8cbca1fff8b9b908bd3ff8ca0f5b39333ff9 14aa

615 bucks? My god....you save about 400 bucks if you were planning on a 1911...

And basically the Jericho 941 is just an improved 1911 since this is how it goes

Browning made 1911....Browning died making Browning High Power.

New CZ 75 pistol is based off of Browning High Power but made better.

Jericho is based off CZ 75

So basically you are getting a modern 1911 with polygonal rifling..

I'm sold.

That is true, I would bet on our guys being able to hold their own, and then some.

However, Consider This:

Custer had trained troops going against "untrained savages" who merely knew the land better. That and being hopelessly outnumbered.

Battle of Dien Bien Phu - The French trained troops got their asses handed to them by "untrained revolutionaries" from the Vietnamese Viet Minh revolutionary forces because they knew the land better.

It took the Americans, and their Allies, over a year of fighting to usurp the Japanse from Guadalcanal because the Japanese were entrenched and knew the lay of the land better.

Sun Tzu - Art of War:

Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.

BLASPHEMY!!!

If you utter those words again, I am going to pistol whip you.

Browning designed and SOLD the PATENTS to the 1911. When the Hi Power was being worked on, it wasn't completed until the Patents on the 1911 were up and the same brilliant design, that of the 1911, was copied and incorporated by a "designer" from FN named Diudonne Saive. Saive finished the Hi Power design with parts designed for and used successfully in the 1911.

Hence, the 1911 is the grandfather of all modern autoloading firearms. The Hi Power is King of the Nines, but it is not King of the Handguns.

You are hereby admonished to read The History of John Browning and that of the 1911 as your penance

JD

Browning died while working on Hi-Power and was completed by other designers...but he still made the 1911 so the Hi-power to me is just the next big step after the 1911.

So basically the Jericho is a modern Hi-Power/1911 in 9mm or other cals IMO.

The 1911 is still the father though...but the 1911 is really only a 200 dollar pistol....that is DAMN GOOD but is just not worth 1000 bucks IMO.

I'll own an Operator some day....but I'm going to buy a CZ 82 and that new Jericho as my first pistols.

I've said it before, and I will say it again, once you finally experience a well tuned 1911, in it's purest form, the volume on everything else just gets turned way down....

Browning was designing for the French, on their standards, one of which was that the pistol had to hold 13 rounds. At the time Browning was on his own, and had sold the 1911 Rights to Colt. If he hadn't, many believe the Hi Power wouldn't have existed and the French actually would have had the first double stacked 9mm 1911.

It's a good gun. But the problem is that it is way overpriced for what it is.

Because of it's fame it drives the price up.


That's why I like CZ. Not very well known...so you get what you pay for.
