    I am debating over my ccw and I have it narrowed to a CZ 75D PCR a Glock 30SF a Ruger SR9c which I have already but my wife wants to use it for her ccw also I have been looking at the beretta Px4 storm compact. I like the CZ the most so far for some reason I never hear anything negative about them and I like the PCR and the regular 75 compact and the CZ P-01. I also saw a colt defender 9mm 1911 at my local gunshop used in a+ shape for 599.00. Again any input you have carrying or owning these firearms would be greatly appriciated thank you very much in advance for you help.http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

    I have a CZ75b and love it. At the moment a CZ82 is tucked inside my waistband.

    Nothing wrong with it just never thought of a 1911 till i held this one does bug me that it does not hold very many rounds but if I ever need that many rounds than I am in some serious trouble. I like all the mods you can do to these guns but it does get expensive.

    It's just money and besides, look what you're saving at the get-go.

    If you need more than 9 rounds of 230 gr .45 ACP then get a double mag pouch. :p

    Buy the Colt. If you don't like it, sell it for a profit, then turn around and buy the CZ and a pile of ammo.

    BTW, all the guns you listed in your original post are fine firearms. Beyond that, it's personal preference.

    I'm kinda partial to the 1911 platform myself.

    But I don't carry it all the time. Just as I have different shoes for different occasions, I have different guns.

    Cane,

    That is one fine pistol! And obviously looking at the Bottle you have Good Taste my friend! Living in Tennessee and about 1.5 hrs from the Jack Daniels Distillery. I like my Gentleman Jack also. Don't care for regular Jack as a "sippin" whiskey! Good Sippin Whisky is the nectar of the Gods!

    I'd sell you my SR9C but I don't think it'd be that simple considering our locations. I'd say get another one, they're great guns. The only reasons I'm selling mine is due to that weird Glock trigger also because I want a Vaquero.

    Thanks sniper, I do love my Defender.

    There will be a lot of Woodford Reserve flowing tomorrow. It's the "official Bourbon" of the derby and the choice for those Mint Juleps.

    Did you notice my personally labeled Woodford?

    Cane, the Defender he was asking about was a 9mm. For me, the detractions of a 1911 (weight, size, etc.) are more than balanced by the .45acp round. But I don't exactly understand the desire for 9mm out of a 1911 for defensive purposes.

    .45acp for my 1911's and the Defender is a GREAT platform.

    To be a resident you have to get past the junior member level:).

    To the OP the Colt is hard to pass on if in the condition express it will out live you. The CZ is a quality pistol, I've never owned one but most that do only have good to say about them.

    The Glock is a striker fired polly framed pistol so a bit different than the Colt or the CZ. If you are looking at polly frame and striker fired there are some good choices that IMHO surpass a Glock. My preference would be the S&W M&P. Good luck, shoot as many as you can before you buy and let us know what you decide on.
