    response to Dynamik1's comment

    Hi Dynamik1,

    I am glad that you enjoyed my reviews..I was speaking from the heart and from my own perspective...So I am not in a stage to give an advice, I would lay the information as I see it and experience it and let the people judge.

    As for shooting ranges, I discovered 3 locations, 2 are closer to where I live: One in Westland (Firing Line) and the other in Livonia (Firearm Exchange)..The third one in Taylor close to my work place and itis called Top Guns (they have the best staff for consultation and the best prices)..No matter how busy they are, they always answer my questions and are willing to show me the guns and take them apart and have a little talk about safety and mechanisms, etc.The first two places (close to where I live), the people are some how arogant, specially when somebody like me as a beginner asks questions and they look down at you.

    Well, my philosphy regarding guns is not to fiddle with a factory build design..I am assuming the engineers that designed the gun, they have done their FMEA (Failure Mode Engineering Analysis) and designed the gun for that purpose..And as you said if you want to shoot targets at 10 yrds, I achieved a very good grouping with the 92FS as factory built, and when I was shooting the 92FS it was my 2nd and 3rd time ever shooting a gun..The CZ 75 BD has very similar feeling and general look as an FS92..My current plan is to just use factory parts for replacements (like springs or any other part that needs to be replaced with time)..One of the criterium I was looking for was to like the gun in its current factory state..Again, that is my opinion my friend, and I don't know what is waiting for me..May be when I discover these things and how they can enhance the performance, I might change my mind So I'll take it step by step.

    [QUOTE]Am I wasting my money and should buy only one of them and my next purchase should be a smaller 9mm to consider for carry if I decided too..But again, one is $850 and the other is a mere $440...How come they perform the same..Am I missing something here guys..Please help me make up my mind..Any one went through this comparison or have heard something like that../QUOTE]

    Hey Jimmy glad to hear you are having so much fun checking out all of these guns. I am enjoying reading the posts as it reminds me of my first purchase (a Sig P226). I did not rent as many guns as you but I sure scrutinized as much as you.

    Anyhow I already mentioned this but I figured I would mention it again. Sig does sell factory certified used guns. You should be about to pick up a certified used one for about $500-550. Still more expensive than the CZ but I think the extra little bit is worth it. FYI I am biased though. I own a Sig P226 and have never shot a CZ 75. All I know is that I love my Sig and in retrospect I would have bought the certified used one and saved my self a couple hundred bucks. I wouldn't be bothered at all knowing that it is used because it is a Sig and it has been back to the factory.

    But ultimately everyone shoots differently and has different preferences. That CZ 75 does look pretty darn cool and does feel darn good in my hands. Just go with your gut man. I would not buy both though. If you are anything like me you will be buying a sub-compact for carry within another year. Save your money for when it starts burning a hole in your pocket.

    Thanks for the tip truman565, but I have already made up my mind..It is going to be the CZ75 but I haven't decided which model yet, is it the:

    CZ 75 BD
    CZ 75 P01
    or the
    CZ 75 SP-01

    I only tried the 75 BD but if the SP-01 shoots like the BD then I will go with the SP-01.. And then Most probably I will get the P01 at a later time like next year or so for carry since it has the 3.9" barrel.

    But the SIG P226 still hold a very special place in my heart..Again it was the first gun that has awakened my gun feelings to start with (kind of my first highschool love, you know what I mean)

    Jimmy - I'm a kid again....

    This has got to be the best "what do I get" thread I have ever seen.
