I picked up a 9mm CZ75BD last friday as my first firearm. Before that I fired a .22 beretta, .45 HK USP, .40 Sig and 9mm S&W pistols, and handled a bunch of pistols and revolvers. I chose 9mm because I was more accurate with that than any other round and because of the lower cost of ammunition (asides from the .22), and the CZ because of features and reputation, but mostly because it felt just felt right.
I got it for $350 used in good condition. Around here they go for $500 new.
Welcome aboard..the CZ75 40 was my first autoloader of consequence..other than a Buckmark 22 target pistol...that followed with Les Baer and NightHawk
then another CZ 9 mm compact and then a Walther and a Bersa. So now I
am well auto-ed...
I have two CZ75B's. My first one was a Tactical model (the green one) and I grabbed a second B model that was one of the Turkish Military overrun models with 5 extra hi-caps and a Kadet 22 conversion kit for $299.00 (Not an ounce of guilt attached so don't offer to take it from me to assuage the guilt). Needless to say I like them a lot. They fit my hand and have made me a better shot that I thought I was.
