I see nothing wrong with selecting 9mm over 45acp. I shoot and carry these two calibers more than any other. I wouldn't feel under-prepared with a 9mm.

One caliber is often not clearly better than...

I've got a couple.

My SS Canik S-120 (75b clone) is currently on the trading block. Good gun, but I've already got the real thing. My 75b and P-09 are keepers. I'm interested in most CZs, and may...

I handled a VP9 at my LGS today. They set it aside in case I wanted it. I'm going to pass on it for now...mostly because the only one they could get was a Cali-esque 10rd version.

But I like it a...

If you're determined to go with a SS finish (I'm assuming non-polymer lower), I'd recommend researching:

CZ 75b- Probably the most quality for your money
1911 (various makers)- Lotsa options at...

Unfortunately, I'd imagine 99+% of the shooters who would jump on that trade have never shot (much less owned) a CZ.

I own and like both well enough. But Glock quality simply doesn't measure up to...

9mm should (rightfully) be the most common in my opinion. I realize that 40sw is extremely common within LE. My primary HD/carry pistols are 9mm or 45acp. Both are great, in the sense that they...

I may get an SP-01 one day. I think it's a cool gun, and I like the night sight upgrade. I tend to only have rails on my ARs and poly pistols for whatever reason. Just a personal preference thing. No...

.243 is more common, affordable, and versatile...and 99.9% of the time, it'll outperform the shooter's demands. It's the practical choice.

Folks carry 380acp because it's convenient. And convenience does matter. In many cases, people (myself included) will not carry an inconvenient gun. The size of many micro 380s allows for low-hassle...

I've shot most current CZ pistols. Buy whatever size/weight/frame/caliber fits you right, and buy it with confidence.

I agree. CZ's are great. Glocks are pretty darn good.

Glock is hardly the be-all/end-all many will profess (and that's at the heart of Glock Hate). It's more like the "Toyota Camry" that fits most...

The GSG/ATI/Sig 1911's have been problematic, but there have also been some gems among them. I hope your's is exactly that. I'd like to hear your thoughts after 1K rounds or so.

I don't think there's an absolute answer. There are both ample reasons to count on a light, and not to.

I have two...soon to be one.

I'll hold onto my G23/32, and might even get a 40-9 barrel for it. Nice little 'jack of all trades' pistol. Apart from that, there are just better pistols out there...

$600 is a fair price on that upper.

Most cheapo ARs are pretty good rifles. Even the lowest common denominator Walmart types. The trick, is learning how (and where) to get an A- rifle at a D+ price. And it can be done.

AR-15

These guns have timeless value to me. I also...

You're splitting hairs between a slightly shorter/lighter upper, and slightly better ballistics with a minimal barrel increase. Both will be great. The handguard length and iron sight radius leaves...

The Beretta/Taurus 92 (including most variants) are excellent designs.

Personally I dislike the gun. It's massively overbuilt for a hi-cap 9mm service pistol...but that can be a real attribute if...
