haha that made me cheese the hell out....


As others have said you cant go wrong with either of these fine guns. It just boils down to personal preference. I own a both in 9mm and wont be getting rid of either of them anytime soon.

I love my M&P40 (though I put a 357 sig barrel in it for pin shoots) but the CZ75b is great too. For a first gun, I'd probably say the CZ, though with the M&P you can swap the barrel out for 9mm or 357sig.

Keep in mind you can easily get a 1911 in your price range, like a RIA, since you said you really would like one.

Shot them both, prefer the CZ75.

The S&W M&P was , simply put, uninspiring.

I still look forward to getting a CZ75.

I'm a monster fan of the CZ platform but the bet is that the M&P will have a much broader range of add on's and accessories..Why not the M&P with a 22lr conversion upper later on.(S&W won,t be able to resist that for long)

You might want to check out the S&W SD40. They seem to be a mix of M&P and (?)(can't remember the name of S&W's other polymer gun but you know the one with the rubber trigger pull)(OH YAH!!!..the Sigma) At any rate the SD's look almost like the M&P but at a better street price.Fewer features but they seem to work just as well.(only seen two on the range and the owners liked them a lot)

Never shot the M&P but my CZ75b in 9 mm is one of my favorite pistols. Great all steel gun at a great price.

If the choice is ONLY the above two, go with the CZ, it's STEEL!

BUT.....before you go cash down on anything, take a look at the Browning Hi Power. You will thank me for the suggestion.

I dearly love my 75b,but the old safe already has too many guns that are too large to really carry. It doesn't help to have an allergy to striker fired handguns;that however may be changing.

This weekend I got to shoot a friends Ruger compact SRC in 9mm.Considering street price,size,trigger pull,ergonomics,accuracy,sights and box stock features I can,t think of another gun that is even close.The only thing that bothered me was how much the loaded chamber indicator protrudes from the top of the slide.(looks like an easy fix)Also got to shoot his wife's LCR in +p 38 and the trigger blew me away,what a slick little revolver.

The problem with Rugers is if you mod the gun you can never send it back to the factory for service. They really will replace every non standard part in the gun(a local smith was drooling over the Nelson Ford trigger job on my SP101 and when I told him that I was considering a trip to the factory for a change to a three inch barrel,he nearly had a stroke.He was very stern in his warning against it.)

Guess the point is there are a lot of options out there before you get stuck on the CZ or the M&P.,particularly in you price range.

Cane is right, check out the Hi Power, it will REALLY make you appreciate the value of the CZ!
