I have an basic CZ75 and it's been a big disappointment...shitty mags, zero reliability. Confusing because I have also heard so many good reviews about CZ's Maybe quality isn't "standard" and it's different depending on product batch??

My duty sidearm is rebuild early production Glock17...far the best 9mm I have ever packed.

So answer: G17 :D

Only one handgun ..... I would go with HK P7M8 (with about a dozen mags of course). It's point of aim point of impact out to about 60 yds, all steel, small & flat - easy to conceal, takes a beating and you can wear it comfortably all day, every day. Elegant & functional!

Ruger GP100 .357 magnum. It's usable for self defence and for hunting small game, uses readily avalible ammom and does't require a Ph.d to operate.:)

A 1911, probably a springfield milspec parkerized or a kimber warrior. I have an Auto Odinance 1911A1 and its my carry gun. As 1911s go its trigger and sights suck but it was $400 and I have not had reliability issues at all.

Just to prove I'm a geezer, as a kid, my uncle, who as a member of the NRA, bought 2 1911s (new in the box) for $18.75 each.

Yeah! I remember that offer from the NRA! I just never got around to doing the right paperwork, etc.

It is possible to get a dog out of any batch of anything.

Mags will cause a CZ to choke quicker than anything else.

Get some Mec-Gar mags with the dimpled followers and stay away from the factory ones. Bet ya 1/2 case of 9mm Win. that solves your problem most ricky-tick.

I have my grandfathers 1911, carried it through the pacific theater during WWII, it still shoots like a dream. Still like the Sig though for combat use. 9mm is fine with me as a shot betweeen the eyes is all the stopping power needed.

Bored....
so I did a quick count.

27 folks chose one varient of Glock
14 chose the 1911
4 each for USP, P35 and the XD
3 for various revolvers
2 for CZ-75
and 1 each for the M9, P-7, Ruger .22 auto and ,ahem, the Llama Nine

Couple of smart ones elected to chose whatever was in their hands at the time, a few mentioned several mod/makes as their favorite.

It's hard to knock the 1911's especially when secret squirrel types boast about them. Even Vicker's website says they are not as reliable as a Glock. But I can't get away from Glock's. I carry a G26 most of the time, but love my G21 as well. 13 reliable rounds of 45ACP is a potent package. So I say Glock anything.

My first weapon was a 1911 18 years ago.
Then I tried a EAA witness 9mm(clone of the CZ75 but much smoother) and a 92 FS then went to the 3rd gen Glock 19. Had some malfunctions with the EAA and the 92FS probably due to bad ammo since here you load what you find but never had any go wrong with the G19.
Went through 2000 rds in 4 days with a well used 1st gen G19 training in NC and 0 malfunctions all others malfunctions( sig, berettas,) except 1911's. Reasons ranged from incorrect grip or that NC sand in the mags.
Went through 1500 rds in 5 days training in St Louis with G22.
0 malfunctions.

Definitely anything Glock.

Stay Safe

Sig P229 .40 & .357 SIG w/ nite sights and hogue panels

My buddy picked up his $1700 Springfield TRP the same day. He had failures all day long while I've got 1500 rounds through my Sig so far without out any. The only failure I've had is when the same buddy loaded my mag with 9mm accidentally. The first round fired but there wasn't enough power to eject the spent casing. My next purchase will be a P220R, no question.
