For what it's worth, I am a very happy CZ75B owner. I don't have the decocking option and so far, I don't miss it. My CZ75 is the S&W .40 caliber. I prefer alloy frames over polymer, however I receintly purchased a P345 Ruger and the polymer frame is exceptional. 9mm is a good caliber as it's economic for target shooting and reasonably effective for self defence.Hi,
I've been reading through many threads, reading many advices given to first time pistol buyers.
Although I do have a wider knowledge and a limited budget, I am still confused. I read one and say to myself THIS but then see another model and hmmm..this seems to be better or???!!....
I am opting for a 9mm pistol for target shooting/bulls-eye. I've been shooting with a rented CZ 75 and I am highly impressed with it's accuracy. Had nice groupings from 15 and 25 meters.
However, been looking around at other CZ models, HKs and Glocks today.
Well I liked the HK P30L and HK USP Custom Sports which SEEMS to be brilliant and quality guns however quite on the expensive side.
RE Glock, the overall impression is nuetral to so and so, due to its flimsy cheap feel. Also heard that they've got a high recoil.
RE CZ75 SP01, I am biasing towards this manfacturer however it is too early to buy (i think!). Which version would anyone suggest shadow, tactical, compact?.
Also, what should I look for apart from hand grip?. Polymer vs stainless vs alloy vs...???What is nice to have and advisable to have...
Where does SIG and STI brands fall in the Top 5 pistol list?.
Firing pin block?
Any advise is appreciated.
Here is a photo of my CZ75B... This is on FINE Auto-loader! This is a no-frills handgun, no adjustable sights, no decocker, no transfer bar. Just POINT & SHOOT! I can keep a 1.125" group at 20 yards with it. AND, it's 12+1
