CZ makes awesome pistols. I have fired the 75 and it is very accurate and reliable. The grip is too slender for me though. I do have small hands, but enjoy the larger grip of the HK. I recommend a CZ75 without a doubt though. The only German gun company I do not care for is Walther. Their quality has gone down, and they lost their reputation with the German community. When you have Sig, HK, CZ, Beretta, etc to compete with, Walther is at the bottom. Chiappa is the worst of Italian guns. I know lots of people will be angry with me, but a certain Austrian company is close behind. This opinion is shared with many gun owners here. Their guns are the cheapest in the stores, and the quality is below the major European gun companies. There is always an abundant of Glocks at the stores. I had to special order the rest of my weapons. My friend special ordered a 1911 from the states instead of buying a Glock 21. He waited half a year!

Only two? I guess my XD45 with the 5" geezer barrel and my little Bersa Thunder9 UCP for concealing. I would really miss my Ruger GP100 for fun plinking away at targets.

Be careful what you say about glocks. A lot Americans love them for some reason and are not happy if people say bad things about them , i personally would not have one about me.

Yup, Glock did some gooooooood marketing work with the police forces and mall ninjas.

If I could only have 2 handguns, I would say that it would be my Nighthawk AAC and my Freedom 83 in .500 Wyoming Express,, just because I like them so much,, most likely not the most practical though. Jagermeister, are reloading components and equipment readily available to you in Germany or are they regulated extremely and difficult to obtain? Good luck and good shooting.

You can reload, and materials are available, but you need to take a course and obtain a license. The equipment is very good, which is expected from typical German standards. I am looking to take the course myself in the near future. .500 Wyoming Express? I would like to see a picture of the gun and ammo. Many American gun companies only sell in the states. I was inquiring to Springfield about a gun, and they said they do not export. Is there some regulation I am unaware of?
