Default I hate you CZUSA.

So. For the past several months I've been selling some of my guns and making wiser choices. Mainly just to "thin the herd." For example I somehow ended up with three carbine AR's. How it happened, I dunno. So, I sold two and ordered a NM AR. There. I fixed it.

Done it with all my rifles and pistols. A few shotguns found new homes too. Cleaned out the 'odd' calibers and have a 'better rounded' safe.

I'm done.
I've sold what I was going to.
I've ordered the last two I wanted.
I'm done.

And I'm feeling good about myself.
I'm winning the fight.
The wife even told me she was proud of me.

When I was deciding on what handguns to sell, the first one I decided was a keeper was a CZ75. A *high gloss* CZ75C. One day I'll pass it on to my grand kids. Whichever one stays off my lawn.




Today I'm minding my own business.
I swing by the grocery store to pick up some seasoning for some chicken breasts.
And there is the magazine rack.
I tried not to look.
But, it was too late.
Right there on the front cover of September's Guns magazine...






When did that happen?
When did CZ come out with a SS 75?

I came home and checked the website when the wife wasn't looking.
Shame is a heavy cross to bear.
And sure enough. There it is. A high polish SS 75.


I HATE YOU CZUSA.

If your avatar is an accurate rendition of you, then you are fine with what you have. You do not look like a pimp or Mexican/Colombian drug lord. High polish SS or bright nickle do not appeal to me. A nice deep blue is beautiful. Flat black or Phosphate is perfectly acceptable. A firearm is a tool, not a piece of jewelry.

That's a fine looking gun, but I would agree with robo, although it's purdy and shiny, we buy our guns for shooting tools not as "bang-bling" wearing guns.

But sure is a purdy 9mm!

Yes, a firearm is a tool, but I find them works of art also! Nothing wrong with polished SS.
As a mechanic, all of my wrenches are beautiful too, just can't find stag antler grips for them.
Nothing wrong with a mildly pimped gun, just means that you care about it that much more!

Well, I kinda like "Bling-Bang". See what I did there? Get two, so you can dual wield.




Why is this in the Glock forum.

Bling CZs are nice. I only have a blued one and don't have any particular desire for a bright "mirror" stainless version (fingerprint magnet)...but I'd sure like to add the tamer satin nickel or matte stainless.

BTW- this is nothing new. CZ's been making model 75 variants in satin nickel, duo-tone, bright stainless, and matte stainless for some years now. So sell some tupperwear, add another CZ.

Stainless is more durable. I like more durable.
