Question CZ 75 Compact 9mm advice wanted

Anyone ever own one and if so thoughts concerns or accolades appreciated. Am thinking about getting one.

Glocks, S&Ws, Sigs are all great guns, but most of them are polymer frames. The lack of weight makes them back heavy instead of front heavy in balance and I don't care for that.

If I don't like the CZ, I'll just try to get a 4 inch 357 revolver for CC. I have 2 snubby 38s but I need something I can qualify with out to 25 yards

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!

A friend of mine who passed last year told me about them and really talked it up. I was supposed to go shoot his CZ which was a full sized 75 9mm, but never got the chance. He said they really hold on target, and I really liked the "no Tupperware" LOL.

Do they make a Compact version of the CZ 97 in .45, because I want it for CC?

As far as I know they only make a full size 97. I know mine is not in the CC class...way too large.

I have a TriStar c100 which is basically a cz 75 compact clone very nice shooting gun, never had a hiccup with any ammo and I have tried loads from Buffalo bore and double tap

Glock 42 or 43.
The 42 is a 380, short 9mm, which I carry in a pocket holster, in the front pocket of my jeans or shorts in the summer time. I could probably do it with the 43, if my pants had deep pockets. The 43 is a 9mm and has a little larger frame than the 42. I carry the 43 in a exterior belt holster when Iím wearing a lite jacket or coat that easily concealís it.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

If you decide to go with a revolver take a look at the Ruger sp 101. Have one of those to that I carry in the mountains and also concealed at times. I have often said if for some reason I had to get rid of all my handgun except one, thatís the one I would keep.

Not a Glock fan Ö the Tupperware affects the balance which is why I am looking at the CZ all steel frame compact

CZ is a good pistol, my preference would be a Beretta 92FS compact.
