I have the Metro Arms American Classic II and love it. It is a tack driver, took less 'break in time' than the Kimber Custom Classic I carried with the SO. The Metro Arms is also a Philippine Island...

I have the large hands, short fingers problem and find certain sidearms fit me fine. Others are a bit of a stretch when reaching for the trigger. The M92 is a case in point, though I still was able...

I'd have to agree almost 100%. I say almost because I've never had nor shot a Glock, probably to my detriment.

Semper Fi, Devil Dog. I too am a 'clean weapon' fanatic. Must be those 22.5 years I got to play in the mud like a little kid and actually got paid for it.

You can carry in a gun show here in Texas, but you have to have your weapon 'safed' with a tie-tie by a police officer or Deputy. They also check for ammo in your mags. It's not as if you couldn't...

I've got a KAMA coming here in the next three weeks. Looks to be a fine shooter and should be a nice addition to my CZ-75B in .40, CZ-2075 .40 and my neat little CZ-82 9mm MAK.

CZ-83 Anyone???

I've enjoyed many memorable hours with my CZ-83 (.380) and just wondered if there are others out there who like this weapon as much as I do..

Any CZ-82 owners?? This too is one fine weapon.

CZ-83.............Bersa Thunder .380

Two guns I highly admire. The CZ-83 because it's just one fine weapon. Reliable, comfortable in my hand, easy to conceal, shoot, rely on. I carry it, when I'm not carrying the Bersa.
