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

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.

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 I’m wearing a lite jacket or coat that easily conceal’s it.

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, that’s the one I would keep.

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

I misread your post, noticed it after I wrote mine.
I like the Glock, especially the trigger, and they just feel right in my hand. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
If you decide to go with a revolver, take a look at the Ruger SP 101, really like mine. I have often said, if I had to sell all my side arms except one, the SP would be the one I keep.

Glocks are fine guns , but I just don't like the balance.

Good luck with it. The only problem I have with my CZ is all the bullets go into the same hole. :wink2:

Seriously they are great pistols.

CZ is a good pistol, my preference would be a Beretta 92FS compact.
I have two, not that I bought any but two were retiremnet gifts, one from the guys I served with and the other from my youngest daughter.

Retirement gift


Daughters gift with crimson trace laser grips


I myself prefer Sig Sauer 1911 Ultra Compact .45
