I bought a CZ-75B a few months ago after shooting a buds. I haven't had time to shoot it yet. I've been carrying it here in Jackson (in car) and it occurred to me, this sucker is as heavy as a 1911a1!
My buddies CZ is accurate and reliable, but is 9mm.
Now I am stuck here a while longer in a shall we say "target rich environment". I'm wondering if I should sell it and get a good quality 45 or 357. I've ordered a Ruger LCP .380 for anywhere carry.
Any Ideas?

CZ's can be "tuned up" quite nicely by a competent gunsmith....

ask Cliff Cargill

Get a decent S&W hammerless 357....for pocket carry...load it with 38's and be good to go

It's well known on here that I'm not a .380 auto fan.....

I had a CZ 75B in .40S&W. It shot great! But the factory finish looked like it was spray painted on. Wife said I needed a prettier handgun. So I sold it & purchased a Beretta 96.

The CZ-75 is a well thought out handgun and has been around a while. I wouldn't hesitate to use it. Stoke it with some good hollow point ammo in a +P variety and you'll be set. Far be it for me to tell someone not to get another gun though. More is gooder! :lol4:

ezgo, it's a 9mm. Thanks for the feed back. I like the gun, I'm just thinking a lighter weight and more concealable weapon may be more practical. We don't wear a great deal of clothing around here most of the year ya know.

I used to have a taurus model 617 seven shot .357. I loved this gun but it weighed 28.2 ounces. Sorry I traded it. Anyone, had any experience with this gun made in titanium? Anyone, seen one for sale in Jackson area?
If I were to buy another 617 what holster would work best? I've heard of people carrying 1911a1s for there ccw weapon, but that seems a bit heavy and bulky to me.

I got one in a trade and I really like it. It is heavy, but I don't carry it anyway. I got on the cz forum and learned how to smooth up the trigger a little.

I picked up one off a friend yesterday and I think I'm gonna like it. It seems very well made. The action is tight, yet smooth and the trigger is nice. Thing looks like it's built like a tank. Perhaps a little overbuilt for a 9. Kinda reminds me of the Ruger P series, except a little less bulky. I agee the paint is a little ghetto. Mine is OD green and looks like it was painted with a spray can, however it does seem plenty durable. It had a couple of scratches that buffed right out. Mine will probably be a range pistol, but that's OK, because I've read they're very accurate with these nice night sights. Kind of a nice touch for a midline gun.

That sprayed on finish is completely practical--it's darned near indestructible. Who cares about "pretty" if it saves your life?

I have an older (1993) CZ75 "pre B," and I trust it implicitly. It's accurate, reliable and durable. I've put as many as 400 rounds of hot NATO ball 9mm through it in one day with not a single problem. In fact, it's one of three semi auto handguns I own which has NEVER malfunctioned. Not once.

The 75 design is tested and proven. There's nothing wrong with it for carrying if you can find a comfortable way to do so--a carry weapon should be comforting, even if it's not comfortable. The CZ 75 is arguably the best 9mm handgun ever made.
