    The military often has different selection criteria for gear than I do.

    From your list I'd go with the Walther.

    Well I just got back from a gun store - they had this sweet olive drab Walther p99

    I really liked the feel


    They wanted $689 - I'm gonna see if I can get them to come down since I'm impatient and would rather buy locally.

    I think that $530-$560 would be the most I would pay in a shop for it.

    You'd have to bargain with them A LOT, and don't expect them to come off of that price much. They will probably still want $600 for it, which is too much. :nono:

    CZ, nigga. i'd love to have a 75BD. i like the compacts, too. that link you have to the BD, however, i don't know that shop. i live in the area that shop lists as its location. but, they list a lilburn, GA zip code, and then say "atlanta" and "norcross" in their own description. confusing.

    I played with the CZ too - it was way cheaper than the walther - but the walther felt way more balanced and lighter - not to mention the grips were awesome


    my bro in law is from the Czech Republic - so you know which gun he's pushing for.
