    Now the $105, picture and prints deal and I'll be all set. I still need to figure out what gun I want for it though. My CZ 75 SP01 doesn't quite work.

    As far as the class goes. It was actually more informative and helpful than I thought. I was expecting the worst with a 9am to 7pm class...but it really wasn't bad at all.

    Everyone had a different gun, and the only one that had problems was the sub-compact .45 Glock the guy next to me had. Litterally anywhere from one to four times every single drill. He blamed it on the ammo (he was using WWB) but who knows. Some of the people who went and made it through the class made me feel kind of :eek4: but not bad I guess all things considered.


    I'm still debating between:
    Walther PPS
    S&W M&P Compact 9mm
    Sig 250/220 Carry/2022

    why not stick w/ the similarly ergo'd CZ and go w/ the P-01?

    Dammit. I left that one off the list. I do like the P01. I'm not sure if I'd go with the polymer or the alloy one, but I do like it quite a bit and like you said it's very similar to the one I already have which would be nice. I actually found a place that has them too. I'd get night sights from the get go and leave it alone after that.

    I'm not a fan of the Rami (the sub compact one) at all.

    plus, imo, you get those, you pick up the kadet trainer, both turn into a .22 for practice

    plus, you could get the 75 PCR which is a steel frame w/o the rail, same footprint

    Other than price (which isn't much) I don't even see the difference between the PCR and the PO1.

    Actually if I go with PO1 or PCR I like the idea of all my mag's working on any gun.

    sorry, they must have updated the info or i'm just dumb, the only difference is the lack of light rail, i could've sworn the PCR had the steel frame

    The P01 has the "light alloy frame" as opposed to the "alloy frame" of the PCR, but they both weight the same.

    Based on pictures it looks like neither has the light rail, but I didn't go beyond searching just one picture.

    I'm very happy with my SP01 and will more than likely end up going with a CZ to carry now that I think about it. AFAIK the PCR is a decocker only model, but the regular compact is offered with a manual safety and is pretty much the same gun. And in going back to the site to look for that I do see it has a light rail, but you're right there is no reason for it.

    What would prevent you from carrying "cocked and locked" with a gun with a decocker as opposed to a manual safety?

    I've read of major jamming issues. Being a sub-compact that seems pretty much the standard. I have no personal experience with any sub-compacts however...a little too small for me.

    I don't have much experience with them either. I think I'd probably go compact over subcompact anyway too. CZs are hard to go wrong with :)
