    I'm new to the site and this is also my first post. Although I'm fairly new to firearms, I've had the oppurtunity to try out my friends AR-15s, Glock 17, AR15-lookalike .22s & a Baby Desert Eagle .45.

    I've finally decided to start a collection of my own . At the range I've tried the Glock 17 some more and the Sig P228. I didn't like the feel of the guns on both. So from further reading about guns I came about the CZ lines of handguns and decided I want my hands on a CZ.

    Never fired a CZ because none of the gun range around here have them for rental. I really want to get a CZ 75 SP01 but it is backordered and I cannot wait anymore. However the LGS have two CZs available and I just like the grip on the CZs.

    So the question is...I have the option of picking up either a CZ 75B .40 S&W or a CZ 75 Compact 9mm. So help me decide which to get for my first handgun. Fyi, I also own a CZ 75 Kadet .22lr conversion kit.

    TIA for all input.

    Oh I forgot...both are going for $600. Is that a good price? These are NEW items.

    Prices aren't bad assuming they are factory new. 9mm is usually better for a starter gun but I personally would go for the .40.

    I bought a CZ 75spo1 tactical pistol last month. It took 3+ weeks of waiting. It was worth every dollar 600+tax, every minute.

    Those guns are all business. All steel, double/single action, no external safety besides a 10.5lb double action trigger pull and your brain. Night sights, 18+1 and a family history praised by no other than Col Jeff Cooper.

    Wait,wait,wait. If you are like me I researched for a year, dropped cable to pay for it, and yes waited.

    Another thing I forgot to mention, I live in California and don't know anybody who are LEOs. So I am limited to the guns listed in the CA DOJ Handgun Roster list. :-/

    Don't know about any of that, thank God I don't have to. I'm sure you could google the list and go from there.

    Just an update:

    I went with CZ 75B .40 cal. Already ran 200 rounds through it with no problems. Happy with this purchase.

    Thanks all.
