It boils down to my choice between a CZ 75B or a Browning Hi Power. I may or may not carry it. That job is mainly reserved for my 1911 (I like steel guns).

Hi Power. Robar has done some really nice work on a couple of mine. If you are a 1911 fan, you will not regret the Browning.

I have an older CZ75 and three older Belgium High Powers. They are both very fine handguns. It might really boil down to whether you want the double action capability offered by the CZ. Here are my personal observations on the two pistols.
1. Both guns are reliable and durable.
2. The Browning feels better in my hand.
3. The Browning carries easier for me.
4. I get a little better accuracy from the CZ shooting offhand. Very crisp trigger.
5. My Brownings are much better finished than the CZ. I hate my CZ's painted finish.

My guns are all older guns. I can't speak for the current offerings.

How about a Walther P38?

Hi Power. If you like the 1911, the Hi Power is from the same brain, John Moses Browning. Hi Power is considered "King of the Nines" for a reason. Great weapon, great reliability.

I would go with the CZ75. Stronger, more modern design and probably more accurate out of the box.CD
