...and picked up a CZ-52 with 2 mags and a military-style flap holster for $189. I've heard a lot of good things about them and have been looking for one at a reasonable price for a while now. I'll pick it up in about 2 weeks.
Since I'm going in for carpal tunnel surgery on my first wrist on Thursday, it will be a while before I have a chance to take it to the range.
I don't fault the CZ 52 for what it is, a military sidearm from a military philosphy of "cheap, dirty, plenty". CZ later came out with designs that were lightyears ahead in ergonomics, reliability and accuracy, such as the CZ 75 family.
