Went to the first MD gun show for 2007 today...
...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.
You better be FULLY healed from your surgery before touching off a CZ-52.
I've only fired one clip from one but it's a very snappy round leaving that gun. The trigger on the one I fired was heavy, gritty, ugly. The sights were rudimentary (that's a compliment).
It'll most likely be June; I'm getting both wrists done. I can hardly hold anything now, anyway.
