Virus Stimulus Check

Recommended Posts

I've decided to spend my stimulus check on a 9mm and ammo, but which one?  I'd like a lighter compact with about a dozen rounds capacity, under 25 oz., Condition 1 carry is a big plus, polymer frames are OK, some striker-fired are tolerable, had 2 Glocks (and 2 too many), but I have a carbine that uses Glock mags, so a 19, if cheap might get it.  I like the looks of a CZ 2075 RAMI, but can't find one to handle. 

What do you recommend?

Depends on your purpose for having one. Target, competition,  carry , etc.? I owned a Cajunized RAMI and loved it. Great ergonomics and very accurate. 

A bit chunky for conceal carry and became a safe queen. Sold it and bought a Sig P226 SAO Legion for competition. It's my favorite 9mm. Good luck.

My fav 9MM pistols are all CZs...... I would suggest a P07 or CZ75 compact over a RAMI which is not really a big seller 

Keep in mind ammo is 50% more today than just a month ago due to panic buying

What are your thoughts on the PCR and P-01?

+1 on the CZ75 compact. Good size and high round count.

I usuall carry a PM40 Kahr but currently I'm carrying the CZ due to the higher round count.

I own a PCR not much different than the P-01 or the CZ75 compact and I think it kicks ass,its the same size as the P07

PCR no rail,alum frame is the variation ...I added grips ,sights and a trigger..I can hit targets/groups with CZs that make me look like I know what Im doing..

I would recommend waiting until prices return to normal before buying ammo.

I recommend you go to a range with a bunch of rentals. Try them all and see which one you like best.

I think I will keep mine close as I might need it in a few days, weeks, or months.

For SD/HD I would say a Glock 48 with shield arms 15 round mags is hard to beat.

I have this setup and really like it.

Hate to be “that guy” if this doesn’t apply to you, I’m sure it will to someone else...are you out of debt? Do you have 3-6 months worth of expensives saved up in an emergency fund?  For most of us, these things should take priority over a new firearm purchase. If you are in good shape then awesome! Buy night vision! 🙂

I agree with Slappy. I think its best to hang on to that money. No telling what will happen in the next few months.  When this thing is over, spend it any way you like. But for now, better safe than sorry.

I plan on just sending it back to Uncle Sam, since they may just tax me for it later I may as well just pay my taxes with it now.

They might tax you for it whether you return it or not. It is the government, after all.

Yea, but if I use the check to pay my taxes with it, I won't need to reach out of pocket for it this time around.  They are sure to adjust my taxes next year, as someone will need to start paying into the black hole that is our deficit.

It will be  considered primarily for EDC, but who knows, it might kill a can or 3.  That was the reason for the weight limit.  At 34 oz, I'll just carry one of my 1911s. 

Currently have plenty of 9mm for practice because of the FX-9 PCC. 

NOBODY ever has too much money, but I'll get by.  Next month I'm down to a mortgage.  Night vision, huh?  🤔

Dave Ramsey ? I agree 100% ,  but if he's caught up and has emergency fund , then let the fun begin.

CZ P07 in 9mm. LOVE mine . Light weight , reliable hammer fired , comes stock with steel sights , and can be switched from decocker-only to safety/decocker so you can carry cocked-and-locked. You can switch it to either way in just 3 minutes. Comes with this option from factory.

Glock 43 and 48 combo with some Shield 15 round magazines is the ticket,.  that makes a combo of 4 guns 43,43x,48, and a weird long slide 43 (if you just buy one I'm saying 43x).  You can go from summer carry to carry to night stand gun.  I also have it on good recommendation that Shield will be making a nice magazine for the 43 as well hopefully bumping the capacity up closer to 10 rounds.

 

I love my CZ's but the 43x with 15 rounds is not possible to beat for reliability and carry-ability. I get it though some people hate Glocks and thats ok people make bad decisions every day :)

According to your wish list I'd go with a Glock 43, M&P Shield, Sig P365 or maybe even the Springfield Hellcat.

CZs are nice guns.  They've earned the reputation of being "hipster guns" because they are not as popular in the US as Glock, S&W, Sig Sauer, etc.  But that comes with an increased amount of effort to find magazines, which are normally more expensive than the other brands, and to find holsters without waiting to have custom leather or Kydex bent for them.

If I'm buying a gun for current circumstances, I am thinking about sustainability.  I want low-effort maintenance, low-effort access to parts, and low-effort access to accessories, while getting a high degree of reliability.  I'd shop in the oder of the guns I listed.

      Been looking for one of these for two+ years. Finally found a Sig P220 Legion in .45 ACP and brought it home.

      I’m considering one. But, they seem to be scarce in the Nashville area. Are you happy with yours?

      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.
