I only have one pistol at the moment, so that is what I carry. The CZ 2075 RAMMI is a bit chunky and heavy, but I find it carries fairly easily in a OWB DeSantis holster.

I have a couple dozen to chose from this morning on my run I'll carry my TI 41 mag because it is light.

Later most likely a Glock 23 it is my most frequently carried.

Had the opportunity recently to pick up a new Sig P226 Mk25 at a pretty good price after combining a few in store offers that netted me a total of 15% off. That was on top of the Military/LEO discount that's already applied at the Exchange, and no tax. If ever there were a reason to join the military, it'd be to get nice discounts on the small selection of guns an even smaller selection of Exchange stores carry, right? :cool:

Anyway, that's what I've been carrying now for the past week. It's a heavy beast compared to my LC9s and even my Judge. However, I notice that it doesn't want to sag my belt as much as even the LC9s does. Must be some kind of fancy anti-gravity device in it. Got it riding in a Blackhawk Serpa II holster for the time being. Soon as I get my hands on a mag holster I'll be all set. 15 round double stack mags are considerably less comfortable in your pocket than a 7 round single stack, imagine that. :p

blue, thanks for your service it is appreciated.

i am 'breaking in' my new 226 tribal and i was completely surprised how heavy it truly is...quite deceiving actually. OC'd it tonight actually at denny's and while heavier rode quite nicely on my belt and hip...

btw, supposedly the BX will order firearms for you if you push them...

How do you like the aluminum grips on that? I don't mind the stock grips but they're just a hair too fat for my little girlish hands. It's nothing I couldn't get used to, and have begun to already, but I've been looking at the Hogue G10's and aluminum grips, as well as the Sig rosewood.

The CGX will order some stuff, but a lot of things their standard reply is that they have too small of a gun counter for most manufacturers to be willing to send special orders. Instead they try to upsell you. When I went in and bought the 226, I was deciding between that and an AR15. I asked if they had any Ruger AR556's, they said no and offered me a Ruger SR556, which is like 3 times the price. I've never owned an AR15 before and have limited experience with them, was looking for something well made but more on the basic (and less expensive) side for me to get used to the platform and maybe try my hand at a little modification. Made my decision between the Sig and an AR pretty easy. I've heard people have had better luck at the MCX in Norfolk, though. However, even they won't order the couple of CZ's or the SAR K2 I want, though. :(

That is a really nice looking pistol! I don't own one yet, but CZ can seemingly do no wrong.



This is what you can see me carry at work...

That probably kinda sucks!

Let's just say it keeps me fit! What you don't see is the S&W Model 642-2 that rides either in my cargo pocket or on my ankle or the Spyderco Wayne Goddard knife that's clipped in my pocket.

Needless to say, I carry a little lighter on my own time. [emoji41]

Thank you! I got it used in excellent condition for a good price. Out of everything I shot while buying my 1st gun I liked the feel and control I had with this the best. My requirements were something I could shoot at the range often (to ensure I get practice), won't break the bank to shoot (9mm is ~$14/box for me), and could be carried if I wanted. I have carried it as much as possible since I got it and I have no regrets. The stock black rubber grips are fantastic too.

You should take a look at CZ's new 1911. The price is awfully attractive, almost as attractive as the gun itself. Nice, classic 1911 look, CZ quality, and of course they do have Dan Wesson in their back pocket. If I can find one, that may be my next purchase, if I decide against a rifle.

I want a 1911 but until they release one in all stainless I'm looking at others. If I own a gun I want to carry it and for that I would prefer stainless over blued. I like the cz pistols though. The 75b was in my list.

If they make a double stack 10mm I'm in :D

I share your point of view. Regardless of how resilient a finish may be, stainless just gives you extra peace of mind. It's why I prefer to carry my SA 1911-A1, which is stainless. That, and it fits quite naturally in my hand. Then again, so does my CZ75B:)

Speaking of the CZ, I can personally recommend the CZ75B Omega; it goes for a little cheaper than the "regular" CZ75B, but I haven't noticed any faults in the ~900 rounds I've been able to feed it (time and money are the usual constraints:().

Before I stumbled upon the p226 mk25 deal, I was in the process of locating a cz75 BD for my next purchase. It's still on my short list.
