Thanks....now I have drool all over my keyboard. The Leader of the Opposition (aka spouse) will think I've gone senile again.

ok, will post a pic of what Alte Schule "made me buy" - be careful as he'll get to you too

this is my "forever" nightstand pistol, lots of firepower there - I believe the Laser would enhance it's capabilities in "one of those" night time situations

Thanks, I have an IProtec light and laser combo on my AR 15 and on one of my pistol caliber carbines. I also prefer red and like the compact look of yours on the FN.

I wouldnt mind having a Cz 1911. I had one in my hand and thought,, I'll grab one later. Little did I know they would stop building them. I'm really no 1911 fan per say,, but I really would like to have one built by Cz to keep my Remington 1911 company.

If I had the spare coin to burn, I'd get a Cz 97 bd.imo, they're just to big for a realistic carry gum,, but their 45 cal accuracy is absolutely incredible.  But again, it would just be a safe queen mostly.

I spent alot of years wanting a 1903 A4 Springfield. Finally found one about 10 years ago.  That was my holy grail in firearms.

CZ is another pistol I'd love to own. Never have, but fondled quite a few over the years. Very well made product line.

I have 4 Cz 9mm pistols, rami bd, pcr, p01. 75bd,,,, and 3 cz rifles.

They are excellent old school machine work and craftsmanship.  Competition grade  Out of the box accuracy is exceptional.
The triggers are also exceptional.

That's what Cz is known for,, and they  certainly delivered.

Once you buy 1 cz,, you will be buying more. . :thumbsup1:

Tell ya what Axxe,, while I was always a big beretta 92 fan,, and EDC one for 20 or more years.  My CZ pcr with a 3.8 inch barrel hold tighter groups @ 25 or 50 yards,  than my 5'barrel 92s.
The 4.8 inch CZ 75 bd,,, is just incredible.

I bought my now X wife,, a cz rami,, I believe maybe Nato308 Carrys one,,, and while I never could get the hang of that little bugger,, she was scary with it to 25 yards.
IMO,, The Rami has more of a baby 1911 feel to it. It didnt feel right in my hand. Almost like I was going to drop it. My pinkie wasnt even on the grip,, which threw me off I think.

But the ergos  on the compact and full size 75 series  fit me like a glove.

Tango.I wanted to be like you so I added a laser/light combo to my FN 5.7 today. I know you don't have a light on yours so I guess I one upped you.  :P
Works very well and the balance is good but now it doesn't fit my high dollar holster so may or may not leave it.

Tango, what brand laser is that?

the battery on this one is going and I can't find one locally - so I've taken the Ade Advanced Optics red laser off (that I had mounted on my Wife's G19) and put that on the 5.7 (until I can get a replacement battery) - another nifty add-on
