    i own a cz 85b (pretty much the same gun as a cz 75b) and i don't own a glock but i've rented quite a few at my local range and i would vote for the cz just because of the way it feels in my hand... don't get me wrong glock is a great gun and i am looking to get one here in the future but if it was a toss up between the two i would grab the cz

    If I may..............

    For home use you need something that is going to be:

    a) Reliable
    b) Controllable

    Any gun that you get that you can not shoot accurately and repeatedly due to too much recoil, improper feel, etc. is not a gun that you want to trust with your family's well being. With that written, go to a local gun range where you can rent a few different pistols and try them out. Most ranges will carry the highly reliable and most typically desired brands. The Smith & Wesson M&P series, Springfield Armory XD / XDm's, Ruger SR9's, Glock 17 / 19 / 22 / etc., Beretta PX4 and / or 92, CZ75 / P07 / SP01, etc. Best thing to do is to try a variety of calibers and pistol frames and see which you most feel comfortable with.

    Being a gun geek, I own several 9mm pistols including one of each of the above mentioned (all previously used) M&P 9, XDm, SR9, Glock 17 / 19 / 26 / 34, Beretta PX4 Storm, Beretta 90-two, (shhhhhhh don't tell my wife). I find that I handle the 9mm caliber the best. I've tried the .40, .45, .380, .357Sig, and several others and always fall back to the 9mm for all my 'desires' with shooting. I have two favorite pistols and they are the Glock 34 and the M&P 9. They just feel / shoot the best for me. My friends and I regularly go shoot and each brings their little collection. If you ask each of them which of my 9's they like the most, you'd be surprised to hear that there is a huge range of answers. So the moral is........... go try some out and see what feel's comfortable to YOU.

    If you are curious....... I like / reason:

    Glock 34: Nice balance, know that it'll always go bang when needed, accurate, LOADS of aftermarket parts for it, my 10 year old can do the gunsmithing needed in the event that it ever is needed.

    S&W M&P 9; I LOVE the grip and overall feel of the weapon. All black. Looks great. Shoots great. Seems very well thought out and designed.

    +1 for JoeInKS...the S&W M&P 9mm is one fine pistol! If my wife was a member of the forum, I would be in big trouble. She would then know exactly how many pistols I own!

    Glock and CZ are both great guns and have a loyal following. It's well documented on this board and others. Again, it's pretty much going to boil down to personal preference. Search out discussions regarding both on various boards, go handle them at a gun store for fit and sex appeal and if possible, rent them to see how they shoot.

    Personally, I'm sure the Glock is a fine weapon, but I don't like the way it feels in my hand. The CZ 75 P-01 is another story. Compact, fairly light, supposedly extremely accurate and feels great in my hand. I just ordered one myself.

    Good luck with whichever gun you choose.

    CZ is on my list to buy. I have Sigs and a Glock and prefer my stainless Sigs by far. You pay for the weight savings in polymer with increased felt recoil. In rapid fire it makes a difference.

Lame doesn't begin to describe my pt 22. I voted for glock in your poll. My 27 has always been 100% reliable.
    Feel your pain. Had the same problem with the second and third Taurus pistols I bought.
    Finally took them back to the ffl I bought them from and sold them at a loss. The first one I bought I truthfully had no problems with but I got rid of it as well because I no longer trusted the brand.

    Both are good choices. If you want an all metal gun consider the Stoeger Cougar. Cost around $400, it is the best gun for the money, IMO.

    Then Compact CZ you are considering is known in the U.S. as the P-01. It's a great gun and so is the Glock. But, again...like so many others looking to buy a new pistol..the two you are looking at are different actions. The CZ being a DA/SA and the Glock, striker fired. Your preference for how the gun operates will quickly rule out one or the other.

    Actually, the compact I am looking at is NOT the P-01. It is the CZ 75 Compact, 9mm, all-steel construction, with manual safety.

    See, that's the thing about CZ, they have several guns that they call "compacts". They should have had new designations for each one, so that we all don't get confused.

    For the same price, for use in home defense why not get a G23 instead? I have a G23 and it hasn't failed me yet. I have a Mossberg 500 for HD but my G23 is my everyday carry, almost 24/7.

    I voted for the CZ. I had not heard of this mfr until a friend picked up the P01 (I know you are looking at the 75) and WOW what a sweet treat to hold. I really like the grips and the balance of the gun. I opted for an HK for the traditional slide...the P01 was a bit narrow for me on my first gun purchase...I just wasn't as comfortable with the narrow slide. That said, I will definitely consider CZ for my next gun because it looks and feels great. I've shot the P01 and it was very accurate...the trigger was stiff compared to my HK, but everyone finds their own preference and you will get used to whatever you shoot if you shoot often and regularly. It seems everyone has a Glock so I'm sure you can't go wrong with that pick, but I don't care much for how the Glock feels...it's too chunky for me.

    Good luck on your selection!

    For a carry weapon...in 9 mm...Id chose the MP9c...which I did BTW....and for a "general use" 9mm...Id go with the 75B in either the standard or the short model.

    I had ONE Glock for less than 24 hrs...bought it..brought it home..went thru everything it had to off me...and took it back the next day for a full refund. I came home with my first of 3 Kimber 1911's.

    Ok I have never seen a CZ except on the internet and in magazines. 5 gun shops and no one around here carries one. So I can't say if it is good or not. I can say though I dont like the looks of it. But that is about it. May feel good and shoot good but I wouldnt know

    I do however love the glocks. It takes alittle bit to get used to one though. My friend still cant shoot a glock. I never had any problem but it was different than my Ruger. Now I did however like the XD over the glock. I didnt think I would but something about it made me choose it over the glock. Though I purchased a glock 30sf. Then I finally got to hold and shoot a M&P. The M&P I shot hadnt been cleaned good and was really used so there were a couple of problems (that and cheap ammo). But after trying another I loved it. Way above the glocks and more than the xd. B ut like I said that is just me.

    I could go into reasons but it really wont mean anything. You need to seriously check out the xd and M&P also. Shoot all 4 of them then decide.

    I was at the range last night shooting my CZ again. Everytime I shoot it I want to keep shooting. I know I have already posted but I will tell you I have plenty of weapons and a giant percentage of them is handguns. The CZ is the one I would keep and shoot exclusively if it were all I could have.

    Bird hunting would be hard mind you but I would still choose the CZ.

    I've tried to run one of those plastic things, and I just can't do it. CZ is for me. ALTHOUGH... I do like that IWI Jerico the trigger feels nice right out of the box. Those Isrealies know how to eliminate the opposition with there handy work.

    I haven't had a reply to this thread in a long time. I purchased the G19 about 2 1/2 years ago. I love it. Never a malfunction. I just shot my Ruger LCP and my G27 at the range today. I would consider a CZ in the future, but right now, I think I am going to save up for a Sig P220 Elite Carry Stainless. That thing is awesome, but pricey.
