    Just picked up a new pistol last month, but I just had to go to the gun show today. That's a bad thing. The show was like throwing gas on a fire.

    Next on my list is an all steel 9mm. I've been particularly interested in looking at BHP's and the clones, CZ75&85, and EMP's.

    The EMP I've checked out considerably and is still high on my list.

    I found out that the Arcus BHP clone has the strangest and possibly most uncomfortable tang I've ever held. Who in the world constructs a tang than curves down into the web of your hand?

    The CZ is certainly worth more investigating. Feels pretty good in the hand.

    Today was the first day I put my hands on a BHP in probably 16 years. I didn't really know what I was looking at when I shot it originally. I have to say wow. That gun almost melts into your hand. I've got to find someplace to shoot one again.

    I was sorely tempted by a High Power at the Palmer show today. Alas, I blew my wad on a Kimber Compact for The Lovely Mrs.

    Hmm... Maybe I don't know how happy she is??

    Maybe not knowing is a good thing. ;)
