    Yea, when I came home with the gun, i wanted to do as much research as I could and found that site. It made me smile, although mine is different than the one listed there, just the hand grip anyway. I was very glad to learn that mine was not a clone. I was sad to see a taurus on the list though, at the risk of offending someone, i did lots of research and found no taurus is worth purchasing.
    My friend had the beretta 92fs, (first .9mm i ever shot other than a glock) and although I liked it, i am really loving mine more.
    I also got to shoot a S&W .40, and a S&W .357. I really liked the 357 ALOT, i was super accurate with the first 7 rounds. (What do they call the revolver loaded?)
    Also, i found a video about how to detail the lettering of my gun with nail polish and nail poish remover. (one of them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ50brODM_Y)
    Is this the best way? I would really like to detail the lettering with a nice bright green to match the sights but I really dont want to take non acetone nail polish to my gun as sometimes that shit doesnt work.

    Its almost identical to that one except for the grip isnt flat, it has indentations for fingers. Its the H3, I believe third generation.

    Fiocchi might be it. I did some research according to velocity and foot pounds and in that group Fiocchi is the cheapest. Of course if you want bonded you'll have to look elsewhere.

    RTFM - or, read the manual. Go to their website, find out what they say about their pistol. Get some standard 115, 124 grain ammo. Take it to a range - shoot it. If you have problems - ask for help from a range officer.

    Most folks are more than happy to help a new shooter.

    As far as internet "opinions" - Glock is the best pistol ever. Glock is the worst pistol ever. Only plastic guns are worth shooting. Only steel framed guns are worth shooting. 9mm is a sure killer. Nothing less than 45ACP is worth shooting. The 1911 is the best pistol ever designed. The 1911 is outdated, useless, and shoots an obsolete cartridge -- etc., etc., etc.

    I firmly believe some folks on some lists are either "couch commandos" or write about their fantasy life from their parents basement.

    Shoot the pistol. Shoot other pistols. Find out what you like. Learn from lists - just search, most of your questions have been asked thousands of times - answers will be out there. Perhaps use Google, etc., etc.

    It's a DA/SA, looks rather interesting. Made by IWI in Israel. Have fun shooting it.

    Yeah, I'm with Sonja on this. I do like DA/SA pistols myself. If you are really digging that Magnum Research, take a minute and check out the FNX 9mm and the FNX .40S&W. I have the FNP 9, 40 and the tactical 45 ... they are American made by FN Herstal. I recently narrowed a purchase down to baby Desert Eagle and a S&W M&P 45. I went with the Smith because it just felt good. Congrats on your purchase and happy safe shooting!

    I used to hate Glocks and I was a total S&W guy. Glock had some of the features I liked this time around and the M&P had some problems with it that I was very uncomfotable with. Glock is a great gun. After you sooh a few rounds with a Glock, when you go back to one of your other guns you will think there is something wrong with them. Glock's handle is at such an angle, the recoil is felt more rearward than up flip and target aquisition is quicker than with other handguns. There are problems with the Glock as well though. If your wrist is not for sure locked it will stovepipe on you. Thye trigger gets alot better if you take the gun fully down and polish the trigger bar and sear assembly to a mirror finish. The Glock also sound like you are playing with a Toys R US gun when you dry fire it, just sounds loose. They are very accurate. I can make a 3" group and knock the center out of targets a 25 yards and don't have a problem hitting a target at 100 yards. The parts are also always available (all of them) and they are inexpensive. The mags for my other guns go for $40 to $80 and the G17 mags are $25 for the 10-17 rounds. There are many after market parts and they will not cost you an arm and a leg. They do like like lead rounds or +p+ rounds.
    Over all, if you don't pay full price, I got my G17 for $500, it s a great gun that is reliable. I don't think they are worth the full price tag, $559 for the G17 to $695 for the 10mm or the G35 though. They can handle most any round and thats why I only use TULAmmo for target shooting. it keeps the price down a little. The most important thing is to (1) get used to holding the gun (2) get used to how the gun recoils (3) enjoy youtr new purchase.
    Hope you enjoy it, I do.

    I got my Sig P250c Friday. I only put 56 rounds (50 Fed 180 FMJs and 6 Win 165 PDX1s) and everything was smooth going. It's sweet.

    Looks like we are the winners.

    It was on special for $415 at my range. I went today and shot 237 rounds of FMJs and HPs, both 165 and 180. Again not an issue but the trigger acted weird sometimes causing me to shoot a flyer. I get used to where the trigger breaks but sometimes the trigger breaks later thus throwing me off. It's a long trigger (like my KT PF9) and real easy to squeeze that it has some leverage. Also it only does that when I'm near the end of the mag. Like I said weird but hell, it shoots good.

    I shot a 100 pack with my Sigma 9. I can tell you this gun is for keeps.

    yes sir! I have been almost dead set on a glock 17 up until today.
    I picked up a Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle 9mm Polymer Model. Was the only one in the whole show.
    This gun fits in my hands so beautifully, I love the sights and the look. And the price was right so I just couldn't pass it up.
    Price - $600.00

    Came with two mags (edited from clips), cleaning kit, lock, and spent casing.
    I also picked up two boxes of Federal 115 grain.
    Thoughts? Comments?

    Great grab buddy! A work friend of mine has one chambered in .40S&W, and he loves it. I have not shot his, but held it in the hand and it felt very good indeed.

    Thanks.
    My buddy really wants it in a .40, i wish i could afford to buy it for him but hopefully he picks one up.
    Something tells me I am going to need to get a nice backpack of ammo on the cheap

    Good choice on the purchase! I have read about a lot of folks who have the DE 9mm and they love it. One of the best purchases I ever made regarding cleaning a firearm (pistols & rifles) was a "bore snake". It's a fabric bore cleaner that is flexible and pulls through the bore. It has brass bristles embedded in the front and a wide space of weave behind that that allows you to put some bore cleaner on the front, pull it through and completely clean the bore. They cost between $15 and $20 each (different sizes for different calibers) and the best part is when it gets a little dirty, you can put it in a diswasher or clothes washer and clean it. Just my two bits.

    I've learned to take people's opinions with a big grain of salt. I always like the underdog, and that's probably why I was drawn to the bersa I had and then to my new Rossi. No respect...just reliable bang.

    Thanks for the advice guys.
    I really want to have a person who is well adapted with my gun to help me clean it, I feel as though I am not doing it right due the limited information, but other than that this gun has to be my most favorite out of all the guns I have shot.
    This gun has versatility and reliability and to me both of those are priceless.

    I am having a hard time finding a green dot sight for this gun, I am not sure what will fit? I have heard that since its a clone of the cz-75 anything that fits that will fit this but I dont know if thats true? Seems like too big of a blanket statement?
    Any ideas guys n gals?
