    Going to a gun show on saturday with my pops. For Christmas, im going to pick a gun out for him to buy for me. I want an AR, but its not practical at this time. However, another addition to my pistol collection will be fine. I have narrowed my decision down to these two guns-

    CZ75 9mm, 15rd capacity. Good solid reliable 9mm

    or
    Springfield Armory 1911 GI, 45, Also good reliable gun, nothing special
    [​IMG]\

    I have 2 glocks already both 9mm, and a wilson 45. so either way im not out or anything....What would you all pick? Thanks for the help:wavey:

    I'd get the CZ. I've got 2 1911's and a Baby Eagle (slightly similar to the CZ).

    1911 GI. then get some nice grips and have fun shooting it as is until you want to build it up.

    cz75 for sure... much reliable and accurate than any factory 1911..

    the cz75 is probably the most widely used military firearm in the world.. very close to the g17

    You already own guns you probably don't shoot enough. Spend the money on training and ammo.

    Any reason you want another gun since the two you listed don't really add anything to your collection? You already have two 9mm and a Wilson .45... Why add another .45 or 9mm?

    As already mentioned why not get some components for the AR or some items for the guns you already have? (CCW holster? Ammo? Night Sights? etc.)

    Or do what Shackle suggested...

    I'd do something like that instead of having a bunch of different guns... I have several different handguns guns now and you don't get to shoot them enough... And if you take them all to the range, then you have a bunch to clean. I'd like to get where I'm only going to the range w/ one or two handguns to shoot... (probably 2... my 22/45 and G26 or XD40).

    i agree with you and shackle, but you can NEVER have enough guns my friend. ive always wantd a cz, and the GI 1911 is just unique. i think im going to go with the CZ as i already have a 1911 though.

    the AR will come in time, im in no hurry.
