I'm pleased to see all of the positive comments about the CZ. I played with one at the gun shop. The counter guy had all kinds of nice things to say about it. But I always think that a lot of salesmen are telling me whatever I want to hear to make the sale. The price is certainly pretty attractive for a pistol of it's class. The Money saved would buy a lot of accessories. I checked, accessories are reasonably priced and easily available i.e. sights, grips, magazines, etc.
Definitely on the short list now. The other cool thing about it is that I would'nt be seeing a dozen of them at the range every time I go. I value that sort of thing.

There is also a groovy "kadet kit" that is basically a slide & magazine made to let you shoot .22LR with the CZ75b, handy for cheaper target practice or N00B training.

Ok, I'm a 9mm type of guy when I'm not shooting .45acp or 10mm. I don't care about the rounds the gun carries. Accuracy is #1. A Walther P1 or P38 is tops. It ejects left while the rifling is a right turn. They counter each other. A Sig P6/225 would be next. I have big hands and a single stack gives great control. I've been the 92 route.

I would go with a Beretta M92FS

People say it's overrated, but for good reason. Accurate, Reliable, Combat Proven.

Second choice would be the Sig P226.

Then maybe a CZ.


Most people buy based off of Ergonomics, so I would go with what feels most comfortable.

My next pistol will be a Browning Hi Power, Beretta 92, or a cz75. Now, will this come before or after i get my AR?

Like overkill said the price is a little more attractive to me since i am not in the "wealthy bracket". with the couple hundred i am gonna save on the cz i am gonna get some custom grips by this guy.

I would go used, and buy any two of the following:

S&W 5906
CZ 75/SP-01
Beretta 92FS
EAA Witness/Tanfoglio fullsized
Baby Eagle/Jericho.
Sig 226

My favorite is the Baby Eagle, but any of them except the Sig are great. I like the Sig OK, but the grip is odd to me, along with the trigger.

Even with the Sig, you should be able to get them both for about $1K, and once you decide which one you like better, you can sell it and try another one.

I like my M&P9 Pro Series. Cost me the same as my brother's XDm (Also a fine gun), but has better sights (Fiber optic front, plain black slant rear) and fits my hand better. Admittedly, the trigger on the plain M&P sucks, but the Pro Series is as good as any other 9mm I've shot (Though I've yet to try a Hi-Power).
