    Great looking gun

    How many rounds do you have through it?

    I have fired all of the listed, and I would have to say I would go with... none of the above.

    This is because I now have a CZ-75 SP01 Tactical in 9mm

    This is mine:


    This is a Phantom:


    I would have to say I would go for the Phantom if I was going to buy a polymer pistol.

    My reasons you ask?

    -The 75 is a tack driver. Simply put.
    -LOVE the trigger on mine. (Some people say they have issues, I have had none.)
    -I really like the decocker setup. Makes it feel like I have a nice revolver with 18 shots
    -I am pretty big, not like weight, but just overall frame, so size of a pistol doesn't bother me too much on the concealment part*.
    -Low recoil.
    -Feels amazing in my hands.


    I know I may have gone astray with this, but I just really think the CZ's are quality firearms. Price was not too bad for my all steel SP01, under $700 new, and the Phantom is around the same price range, if not cheaper.



    *Technically I cannot conceal and carry yet. Only 2 more years!

Fourth, and last, H&K and Sig represent a miniscule percentage insofar as use by the aforementioned agencies...and I suspect, due to their high cost; and they are not the most consumer friendly companies to deal with....there are too many manufacturwers to list, and I chose the top 5 MOST represented in the civilian, Law enforcement, and militray arenas. Now, if you find all this too confusing, then it's on you.
    We can only choose from your perceived popularity list?

    HK is my fav.... the P2000 line. SIG is a close second. Both brands are very highly represented in the military and LEO markets worldwide.

    Very good, not too sharp. A lot better than the original.

My backup is a fully customized 1911 with all the IPSC add-on options in my $500.00 leather pancake holster custom made by Belgian Monks who have devoted their lives to silence and holster making. These are the ones used by SEAL Team 6, which I used to be a part of, but all records of my activities were destroyed in a fire "accident".
    I put on my Royal Robbins photographer vest to match my pants while wearing a T-shirt underneath reading "From My Cold Dead Hands". That way, nobody can see what I'm packing.
    I had my Centennial .38 Special in my ankle holster, just like the gun rag guys carry.
    Lastly, I had my "Covert Sniper" I.D. Card in my wallet with my "Concealed Weapons Permit Badge". I was ready for anything.
    I drove my Bug Out Truck to the 7-11 for some beer, 'cause you never know. It is a performance styled Subaru BRAT with 4 cylinders of ground pounding fury.
    I pulled up to the 7-11 store and noticed a nefarious looking Girl Scout eyeballing me from the back of her mothers' SUV. A likely cover.
    The mother returned to the truck and went for the keys in her purse, but I knew from my years of combat honed instincts that she was actually making a furtive movement for an offensive weapon.
    I attempted a tactical shoulder roll, but fell flat on my face, kind of flopping on the pavement to avoid any incoming rounds and to make it look like I meant to do that. The store owner called 911, which is good because I then did a roll and attempted to draw my Glock.
    Unfortunately, since I did not have a holster, the gun "went off", and the bullet creased my wiener. But I was prepared for that and bit down on a 9mm casing to take my mind off the pain as I dove for the garbage barrel.
    That's when I noticed the Girl Scout shouting something to her mother who began to take cover. I knew they were closing on me so I drew my custom trusty 1911 Wilson Combat...I knew that they would be impressed with that. I then duck walked to the front of her SUV, but my gut kinda got in the way and I fell on my ass, which caused me to swallow my 9mm casing.
    I then tried to roll to my right, but didn't want to scuff my holster, so I just threw myself into the telephone pole, but I landed on my right side anyway. So I fired one shot towards the woman's SUV to pin them down as I recovered my wind.
    And before the mother knew what was happening, I charged her and I threw my groin into her knee. I knew that as I vomited on the ground in front of her that I had interupted her OODA loop. I had the advantage now. As she ran screaming for the Girl Scout, (I knew she was going for backup) I made for my Super Charged BRAT Tactical truck. I jumped into the drivers seat forgetting that I had left my rare Israeli contract AR 15 Bayonet on the seat, honed to a razor's edge. I could handle it though. Half of my ass is an implant from war wounds.
    As I attempted to start my truck, police and paramedics arrived on the scene. My truck would not start and instead backfired once and caused the police to Tase me. At which point I tactically soiled myself while in convulsions. My custom 1911 then fell out the window, but I still had my Centennial .38. I knew that I had to take out the woman with the purse.
    So I aimed my revolver at her at which point the first police officer fired once striking me in the chest. Fortunately, I was wearing my level 3A body armor. I didn't want to hurt the cops--they had obviously been duped by the evil temptress who was now embracing her partner in crime and crying to the police in the background. I knew it was a ruse.
    I pulled out my concealed weapons permit badge and showed it to the officer who shot me and yelled out, "I'm one of you guys!". He continued to cover me and ordered me to drop my .38 so I laid it down. I still had my bayonet after all, attached to my ass. The cop walked toward me and upon reading the badge, maced me right in the eyes. Fortunately, my Oakley shooting glasses stopped most of the spray and I was able to rip free of the Taser cords easily. It only cost me one nipple, easily replaced. I dove for the passenger side of my truck and began to run zig-zag for a ditch. Unfortunately, the bayonet sticking out of my ass slowed me down. I knew it would have to be hand-to-hand now. I knew the cop coudn't take me when I saw he merely carried a Glock 17, not a man's gun. So I immediately threw my eye into his right hook, followed by a knee into his Mag light. As I lay thrashing on the ground, I took the heel of my Bates Enforcer boot and kicked at the cops ankle. I knew from my classified experiences in
    Tajikistan that once breaking the ankle, the cop would fall down and I could "stun kick" him in the head, knocking him out but not hurting him.
    Apparently the cop had also been to
    Tajikistan because he side stepped me and struck me in the back with his ASP baton, but my trauma plate absorbed it. I then drew my Benchmade auto knife and was promptly tased again, but I was ready for it this time and only wet myself a little bit.
    Next thing those cops knew, I was unconscious. That'll teach 'em.
    Undoubtedly the funniest thing I've read on any forum. Unless it's true, that is. I mean......it didn't really happen, right?

    LOL, this is imposable for me to answer. My first poly gun was the Walther P99, great gun.
    Next was a XD40sw then 45acp, the cost of the ammo for those got to be so I that I sold them and bought the XD9mm, great guns all. Then came the XDm and then a Glock.
    Funny thing about the XD9mm. I have one of the HS2000, pre Springfield but the same gun as the XD9. It is a tack driver, the XDm is as well, but the XD9mm I think has sight problems, cause it hits low all the time. Then the Glock, hated them for the longest time though I had never owned or fired one. A few years back I got the opportunity to shoot a G17 and now I own one and it is a fine gun as well.
    Long story short, I have never really seen a poly gun I did not like. So I can't just pick one, they are kind of like Lays Potato chips

    Good sir, do you have larger pictures of these two pistols. They are good picks and would make great wallpapers.

    Definitely a solid pistol.... how did you get grips on your phantom, did it come with it? I've asked around a few places and they said it wasnt an option. I have always wondered if they could just drill it out and add on some more comfortable grips... I don't know.

    EDIT: Looking back at it that's a tactical right?

    Love the XD

    Lost count of the number of handguns I've shot over the years but my XD-45 is the most comfortable gun to point & to shoot that I've ever owned. I've found the Glocks to be too light most of the time and I wasn't comfortable with the M&P's I've shot even though I see lots of folks on the forum who like that option as well.

    The SP01 that Buffal0 is showing is the SP01 Tactical with the steel frame..That's why it has grips..Your SP01 id the PHANTOM with polymer frame..You can not add grips to a polymer frame, however, there is always the option of the slip-on hogue grip. Could be an option.

    The OP has attempted to pidgen hole those that pay a little extra for their firearms, which is why I'm not participating in the pole. I own a SIG as well as some others. Owning the SIG means I have one less firearm in my collection than if I didn't have it and that's a choice some people make. 2 Taurus' or 1 SIG.2 Rugers or one HK. I don't see it a problem on how some choose to spend their money.
