Is this the "Glock killer" everyone's been trying to put out?

Another myth, like Loch Ness.

It can't be, the CZ P10c is the Glock killer...

I can't wait for the Kool aid fueled hate to begin on the branded forums.

So, what prompted you to even buy a gun that doesn't fit you in the first place? :confused:

I was 21, new to handguns and really didn't know enough to think about how it actually fit my hand. It's not the most ergonomic but I do shoot it well and out of 4-5K rounds I've only had 1 malfunction from some crappy reload.

Funny,I always thought the M&P was G19 sized,shame on me.....

That 1/4" on the barrel and on the grip just screams FULL SIZE!!!!  I carry a M&P 4.25 just as easy as a Glock 19.

Man , these M&P's are a love/hate thing with me. I love the way they feel but I just hate the fact that you have to remove the rear sight to detail strip the slide. Glock has spoiled me I guess. But the M&P feels  sssooooo nice. I know that function is always more important than fashion but the M&P's look great. Looking at the new Glock gen 5 and what has been done to it and this M&P , I'm gonna swallow my pride and say I'd rather buy the M&P .

I have never been an M&P fan. They just never had a natural feel in my hands. But, the one that did feel right is the .45 Shield. Got rid of my G36 for it, and haven't had one regret.

Huh?  I mean, yeah, if you absolutely want to remove the firing pin safety for some reason?  Otherwise, it's very easy to remove the striker assembly by just turning the slide over and depressing the FPS.

Yeah , I cant help it . It's just a quirk I have and I'm OCD. I love the old Ruger P-Series but they have the same thing to where you have to remove the rear sight for a complete slide disassembly. I used to have the same thing with roll pins but I am slowly getting over that , ha ha. I just like to have a gun that I can completely disassemble with no tools other than a nail , punch or something simple just like the Glock. Its just a quirk of mine and so far Glock fills that need. I still like these M&P's though.

Yeah, there's no doubt at all of the Glock's simplicity when you want to take it apart to the individual pieces.  The M&P fails that on the extractor roll-pin alone. :)

Yeah I'm so happy... I've avoided a glock 19 until a couple months ago... finally bucked up and bought a glock 19 and shaved the finger grooves... a few weeks later the gen 5 comes out... and now the m&p which is what I prefer

Ain't that the way it always works, though? :)

One way of looking at this positively is that you have a Glock 19 now and everyone ought to have one of them.  Now it's just a matter of saving up your pennies for that M&P M2.0 Compact to add to the collection.

That's actually why I ended up buying it... it's the 10/22 of handguns if you're a gun guy you almost have to have one... even if I don't really like it

I think I need a 2.0 in the stables along side a gen5 glock g19 along side a P10c along side a P320

 

Seems fitting ?

One of each, two of many, three of some....

Except it's not Glock 19 sized. Why does the 2.0 Compact use the same length magazines as the full size pistols?

Compact uses a 15-round magazine.  Full-size uses a 17-round magazine.  You can put a full-size mag in the compact but the mag will stick out beyond the pistol butt, just like it does on the Glock 17/19 family.

I am mistaken. Must have been looking at the full size. I had my momentary dumbass flare up.

Can’t wait to pick one of these up. What prices are you guys seeing at local shops? Most places around my area are asking between 500 and 520.

That pretty well cements my opinion that an M&P will be my next handgun purchase.

Always nice to see more quality competition amongst this size pistol. Good for the consumer.

I think we are the only two that own one of these FN's. Someone on TGO has the compact version also I think.

I have an FNS in 9mm.  It's my favorite 9mm.  Up until I bought this one it was a Glock 17 and Browning  HP.  And it doesn't need a tool for take down!!!

I have the FNS9C and love it. Very accurate for a compact and fits my hand really well. I also like the 12 and 17 round magazines that come with it.

      I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal.
       Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. 
       I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.

      Hi all,
      I just got into handguns after moving away from a state that made them impossible to get.
      Are there any tips and tricks to get less expensive 9mm ammo for target practice purposes? I currently get them at Academy and its about .175 per shot. At the range I typically go through 150-200 rounds which starts to get pricey!
      Thanks in advance for the advice.

      I am admittedly stuck on Glock and Glock-like handguns.  With more than 25 years of experience with them, carrying them, shooting them, etc. I am just not going to get away from them anytime soon.  Lord knows I've tried.  Not because there's anything wrong with them, but because I like new experiences as much as the next guy does.
      THIS however is not a Glock.  There's nothing Glock about it.  Not a single Glock part rests within it.  It is 100% Zev Technologies from stem to stern, including every little piece and spring within it.  Hence the O and Z in OZ9.  Original Zev.  Not a Glock.
      It is however familiar in many ways to a Glock shooter, albeit with the dial turned up to eleven and then ripped off, thrown in your face, kicked out the window, and stomped upon outside on the sidewalk.  Zev amped it up like they hated that dial and it owed them money.
       
      This particular configuration is very similar to my beloved Glock G45.  It has the compact G19 length barrel and slide, with the G17 length grip.  Unlike a Glock it has a 1911-esque grip angle and uses a serialized internal chassis much like the Sig p320 does.  The chassis is a solid hunk of machined metal that contains Zev's take on a Glock-style sear, their fantastic trigger and trigger bar, the rails upon which the slide moves, and I guess an ounce of black magic.
      All it takes is pushing out one small pin to remove the chassis from the grip module and turn this into a G19 sized compact gun.  Which I've done for summer carry.
       
      It shoots like a dream.  The trigger clocks in at 2.69 LBS on Lyman gauge averaged across 5 pulls.  It tracks smoothly under recoil and doesn't move an iota off target unless YOU move it.  If you miss, it's the shooter - not the gun.  You just have to own that fact and accept it.
       
      I've heard my friend Dr. Sherman House ask another shooter if their Zev OZ9 was really all that or if it was just a Camry with nice wheels.  FUNNY!  I had the same questions as I considered buying it.  But, I'm glad to say it's got the goods to back up the sticker price.  This is very much a Porsche wearing a Camry suit.
       
      There are dumber ways to spend $1500.  I dig the hell out of it.
