    Thanks for the tip LD. I'm definitely leaning towards picking up one of these pistols. I don't think you can match them for the price, compared with say, a Beretta. Nothing wrong with Beretta, but the CZ can be had for much much less.

    A small to medium framed 9mm that's good for CCW or nightstand would be a SIG P239..not my favorite target gun..grips a little small. A first class pistol however.

    LD, I remember Jawa, I even rode them!!!
    And, good for you, In reccomending the CZ 75B with the Kadett conversion; on this topic, we are eye to eye.
    For the younger of you out there, the CZ-75 was the Czech sponsor of the late Dornhouse and Dixon "Bren Ten", a pet project of the late and revered, USMC Col Jeff Cooper!
    The Czech pistol took the gripframe of the Browning P-35, added a DA-SA Trigger, and eliminated the Mag Safety.
    D&D took it to the next level, as a serious 10MM pistol, and a good one, but could not find a market for this recoil level pistol, but then, neither could the FBI
    The CZ-75 is a superb platform, and the Kadett slide only makes it more complete.
    LD has made a good and valid point or two here; I support his thinking, entirely!

    Since my initial post I have managed to spend my saved up KelTec PF-9 monies (and then some) for a new Walther P99c/AC..

    It's a fantastic pistol. The photo above was taken of results of the first mag. of wwwb cheap 9mm ammo fired. (from 5', standing two handed..)

    I am amazed at the qualities of the little Walther. I feel almost guilty being so happy with it since my all time previous favorite the Sig P239 came into the house more than a decade ago.

    The AS trigger action is unbelievably smooth and light. I love the ambi mag release, free dropping mags, decocker, etc.. Adjustable sights and dead on accurate right out of the box.

    I know the accuracy shown isn't very impressive for most folks, but I'm a senior citizen, declining vision, shaky hands. and I ALWAYS practice at Y.O.F. (Ye Olde Fart) self defense distance, 5-7'..

    This Walther P99c/AS is capable of serious self defense accuracy that I am simply not able to take advantage of..

    The P99c/AS reminds me of the Glock 26 I had years ago, but on steriods, with all the little things I didn't like about the Glock corrected...

    I have always wanted to get a Baby Eagle but never got around to it.
    Do you have one and if so, how do you like it?

    So your looking for a carry piece. Try the Kahr series in 9mm, or if you want all the safeties and such get yourself a S&W 3913(used) or the TSW series.
    All three are great shooters, reliable, and very compact. It does'nt always have to be a "Block". Or any of the other "Tupperware classics" out there.:cool:

    I have a really cheap 9 but the price was right (free). So I too am in the hunt for one. For reference it's a helwan, beretta knock off basically.

    Anyways, I have a ruger P-90 .45 and absolutely love it. I love everything about it from the way it shoots, feel, accuracy, and safety features.

    I am on a decently tight budget, so an H&K USP is rather out of the question. A friend of mine recently got a S&W that accepts the high cap mag, is compact, and looks like a XD. Not sure the model.
    What about the beretta M9? Isn't this military issued?

    Sorry if some of these questions are basic or way off, just haven't had a chance to do too much research on it yet.

    Thanks all, good day!
