Amazon is your batteries friend.  With more variety than Batteries Plus.

it's probably "wet" outside (and the cleaning gal will be here today) so I'll do a little more research, like :  calling Academy and Best Buy and if they don't carry it I will order from Amazon

thanks guys

I got the battery for my scope at AutoZone. Most of these “things” use a battery that is readily available.
 Ck your local auto parts store.

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.




I have the 14 rd. mags that gives it a full grip like the 75.

Yes 308,,,, we also go her the mag extender. It helped me a little but not much, lol.
Fyi,, not only do my 14 round Pcr n p01 mags run in the rami. My 16 round full size 75bd mags also run like a charm.

I also want a Five-Seven some day. I haven’t shot the pistol before, but I have shot an AR57. It was nice.

I'm try'n to fix it, but I still don't have a CZ based on the 75 platform.  Strange to specify, but CZ owns Dan Wesson and I love my Silverback; heck the modern 715 parts even work on my Monson 715.

I'm struggling through pulling the trigger on a Cajunized 75 Compact or a Shadow II.  It's gonna come down to which one I trip over with an overstuffed wallet first.  So just stuffing the wallet in anticipation.

I gave up my dream of a LNIB S&W Md 27 with 3.5" bbl.  I just can't get there from here with Social Security.  BUT I've been looking for a Browning Hi Power.  My LGS, Blackjack Gunsmithing has 5 different ones, but I can't get the price I need.  So.... I bought a new in box Turkish clone by Regent, the BR9.  Should get it late next week.  If you don't look close, it'll pass for a Hi Power, but it comes with adjustable sights!

Anyway, just wanted to keep the dreams going.

SIG P210 Target. Would love to have one but it's not something I absolutely need. They run about $1,450 so it's not on my short list.
