CZ 75 does not get nearly enough love. It is an outstanding sidearm.
When I owned a Garand many years ago I found that felt recoil while shooting was much less than that of the Iranian/Persian Mauser or Enfield rifles. The flat shotgun style buttplate I expect. Only hours after finishing a days shooting did I began to feel the full effect.
The 98K with cupped flat buttplate probably gives a similar effect.
My old Persian Mauser carbine had the older style butt plate, slightly curved. More comfortable than the Lee Enfields deeply convex curved Musket butt plate but not as comfortable to shoot with as the flat buttplates.
I swear my taste in watches and firearms hasn't been influenced by any major movie franchises...
I shoot a CZ 75 because it reminds me of the Bren Tens I've owned in the past. Jeff Cooper based the design of the Bren Ten on the CZ. I think it has great ergonomics.
I agree. I don't have a carry size cz but I do use one for steel chalange and USPSA.. love it
You have good taste. Basically the same pic I posted last week lol. Cz and a speedy lol
Glock 17 vs SMP ceramic
Back in the safe we have the 1911
Have it in a display case. Thought about getting it out. Will have to settle for the glare. Probably 20 years since I had it out and shot it.
Colt 1911 model. $16.50 was price when bought. Govt surplus
What’s your guys thoughts on purchasing nice older revolvers? When is it a user or a safe queen? I ask as I’m gravitating to more expensive “nib” or “99%” condition but I want to use frequently. I want to make the cylinder line lol. I have to look online and go through my personal ffl as I never see anything other than badly maintained or outrageously priced pristine models locally.
I personally shoot all my guns.
Well now the question over Europe is for how long.
The European Union is planning a whole semi-automatic ban for 2025.
You guys in the US better watch closely because they'll try the same.
In Switzerland even if we have a constitutional right to own firearms, they followed the EU laws (we are not part of EU but we signed some agreements where we are supposed to follow certain EU laws) and we had to use our referendum to make people vote about it on the 19th of this month. If the vote fail it's the end of ownership and guns will become an exception like in most other EU countries.
The problem will be when they'll make them illegal and I don't see them compensate the value of the collections people have.
There is nothing to fear from government.
Here is a Daisy pump air rifle. Even found a big can of BB’s in the garage
Note the adjustable sights on this fine BB gun.
Here's hoping Switzerland and Europe tell the European Union to "go soak its head" over efforts to take away the people's liberty to own and use firearms of all types.
Older revolvers (well older automatics too, but especially revolvers) are "where it's at" for me.
I have to experience each and every firearm acquired. No safe queens here, no matter how old or how valuable on the market. Even if I have no real need to fire them I want to be the one to enjoy their use. I say that and find that there's a "new-in-the-box" unfired Smith & Wesson Model 10 in the slightly less common 6-inch barrel length still in the safe three years after I've acquired it. I intend to fire it. Even managed to get it to the local club range on one occasion with some other handguns intending to enjoy its inaugural firing ... but forgot to bring any .38 Special ammunition.
If that's a Daisy Model 25 I had back when gas was 25¢/gal.
I loved that whole rescue and getaway scene. Those boats came with the "fire-hoses" and hosed em down. I know that would me think of nothing but ducking deep. "Proof of Life" is another one with a great rescue scene.
I don't have easy access to it at the moment, but I have a Bauska imported CZ-75 pre-b made in 1984. The paint on it chips easily, but it is a fantastic pistol. It's the one I'll keep. The others I'd like to trade for watches TBH. Anyone want a SIG 229R DAK?
