    I have two handguns available to me for the same price. In the fine opinion of this forum's members, which is the better gun to own?

    CZ75

    Or a Baby Desert Eagle .40 aka. Jericho 941

    CZ - it's not even a competition unless, like the good sgt indicates, you are "looking" for a certain look.

    I was tempted to click you interrupted my pr0n sorfing, but alas, I can't do that from this nazi terminal here in my cubicle hell hole....:(

    Get the CZ - or wait, sell off your recent 1911 acqusition and get yourself a top of the line 1911 and bask in the glory that is owning the best handgun platform on the planet. :D

    Does the CZ look like it should be carrying a purse?

    (I happen to agree with you, btw)

    We are more alike than I thought. That was precisely my plan. You are good.

    Well, one big issue, to me, whenever I look at a handgun is where is the safety mounted? If it doesn't have one, like on the Sig, find out what internals it does have to make up for that.

    If it's trigger mounted, in my opinion, keep walking. Why? "I am the only one in this room, that I know of, who is professional enough to carry the Glock .40" BANG!

    On the CZ, it's a solid, frame mounted safety. This is how it should be.

    On the early Baby Eagles, or Jericho's, or whatever, they were a slide mounted safety. JD, and company, do not like/recommend slide mounted safeties.

    Why? Isn't it all the same?

    No, it's not.

    Look, your slide performs many functions, and is usually a solid piece of steel/aluminum, but it also houses your striker, which is the part that makes the gun go bang when the trigger is pulled. There also isn't as much real estate on the slide to correctly mount a safety.

    By mounting the safety on the frame, where it is supposed to be, you have a solid, non moving part of the weapon with more real estate to form a solid platform. So, when the slide moves around, the components of the safety are nice and sound on the frame and aren't being subjected to the same back and forth force of repetitive round stressors.

    In addition, the slide is the part most exposed while in a holster, while the frame is usually in the holster itself. If the safety is mounted on the frame, and the frame is in your holster, there is much less of a chance for that safety to "accidentally" go to fire. Since the back of the slide and hammer region is usually where the snap or buckle is placed for retention purposes, guess what part of the weapon gets fiddled with the most when you holster and unholster the weapon?

    That's why we ONLY recommend frame mounted safeties for handgun purchases in the shop.

    Just food for thought...

    Honestly, and with any experience, I couldn't tell you. I will say that I have been very close to getting my own Jericho pistol once. That being said, and out of the two, it's what I would go for. I'd want mine in a 45 though.

    I guess you all DIDN'T read the thread... "I have two handguns available to me for the same price." Of the TWO choices AVAILABLE... I would take the CZ. Asked & answered.

    I'd go with the Jericho, solely because of the off-chance of meeting a busload of IDF women and needing a quick topic for discussion. [​IMG]

    I'd take the CZ. The BDE is a very heavy handgun, by comparison.

    I am not sure, but I believe he was referring to the cop that shoots himself in the classroom "teaching" gun safety to the kids.

    This CZ-75 SP-01 Tactical Pistol doesn't look too "lady-like" does it? I would say to go with the CZ pistols. They have a better track record and are known for being "bad a**" pistols.

    :cool:

    Then again, you could just get either a 1911 pistol or an AR15 style rifle. They are popular with the ladies...........:cool:

    I guess some people are just TOO trusting, or nieve. There is no way on earth I would trust any anaymous internet strangers to help me decide anything, let alone what gun to buy.

    Yet you and I both became anonymous internet strangers with the same opinion. Small world, ain't it ? :rolleyes:

    The original post simply asked for an opinion...... I'd guess that 95% of all internet posts are simply opinions..... ya think ?

    Well, one - Ineff definitely isn't of the weak minded sheep variety - so I wouldn't worry about him being blindly led down a stupid path. :cool:

    Secondly - I am tempted to close this thread because Mr. Ineff is getting the ULTIMATE gift package of his very own new SIG brand AR from Mrs. Ineff for Christmas! *insert jealousy face here*

    So between his recent addition to the family of his young son, and his new EBR, his cash will be going for diapers, formula and ammo. :D
