    Excited, new gun on the way!

    I just met with a guy today who's selling a 99.9% condition Baby Eagle. I was in the market for either a EAA Witness (after reading the threads on them here), Beagle, or CZ75, and I received a PM from him about his gun. It is a full-size, steel frame 9mm, with 10 rounds through it. Previous owner bought it for his wife; she shot it and didn't like it, sold it to this fellow who never shot it and kept it in his safe. $400, which is about $70 cheaper than they run in these parts. It's flawless from what I can tell. I only say 99.9% because it has been owned.

    I'm so excited! Have to wait until the end of the month though...I'm working a bunch of extra days, but won't get the $$ till the end of the month. I was a little skeptical of a full-size being able to conceal easily, and I'd been planning on a compact version of either of those three, BUT I dropped it in my Cross Breed Super-Tuck and the thing fit very well, and it disappeared! I was wearing shorts and a button-up dress shirt, untucked. OMG OMG OMG I'm so excited!! I bought a P3AT not too long ago, but I didn't get that "Excited" feeling you normally get when buying a gun. That was more of a purchase from a "Ugh, I need something to fill this niche," standpoint. I'm thinking of selling it actually, lol. Ah, crap, I'm rambling. Can ya TELL I'm excited?!?!?!

    Nothing wrong with being excited. I get pumped up when I get a new gun myself. Just don't forget the pictures and a range report when you get it. Good luck.

    The two mags hold 17 rounds each. Factory or after market I'm not sure...I only see 9x19 and a T with a triangle (sorta) around it.

    I copied this from another post I made here, so that I wouldn't have to type it all out again!!



    It's a really nice shooting gun. It's heavy, but it helps a lot...recoil feels like nothin'! The DA trigger is long and heavy, but the SA is pretty darn nice. Almost reminds me a bit of my 1911's trigger when I had it, although there is a very small bit of take-up on it. I have the full-size, steel frame 9mm.

    I've put 270 rounds through it so far, and it had one FTE (stovepipe), which I feel wholeheartedly was my fault- limp wrist. I had the gun on target and was taking up the slack on the SA trigger when I went just a bit too far, lol. I didn't have a good grip on it at that point, and it recoiled up very noticeably.

    I ran 200 WWB FMJs, 50 Remington JHPs, and 20 Gold Dots. It liked them all! The gun definitely seems accurate, although I wasn't grouping too well at first (new gun to get used to!). The rear sight seems awfully high, and I was shooting high at first. When I started aiming just a little bit lower I got it back on target...just took some getting used to. I will say this: the hest I shot was about 23 yds or so on a B-34 silhouette, and all shots but two (out of probably 50) were in the target. The other two were still on paper. For ME, that's not bad. Up closer (7-10 yds) she groups very nicely. When I had the sights figured out I was grouping at $.50 piece size in the 10 ring.

    I like the way it looks as-is with one exception. You need to replace those ugly grip panels.
