EDC & Range use suggestions.

I have $650 to spend on a new (or new to me) gun with holster. It will be for both EDC and target use at the range.

Some notes: I like SAO, DA/SA, or DAO hammer fired guns. I do not get along well with striker guns, so no Glocks, XD's. M&P's ect. Historically, the pistols I have owned that I was most accurate with were Berettas, a Sig P226, 1911's and a CZ75.

I am currently considering a Used HK P2000 .40 (2 mags & holster) for $650,a used HK USP40 (2 mags & holster) $650, Used Sig P228 9mm (3 mags & holster) $650, a new Taurus 9mm 1911 $550, and a new CZ P-07 Duty $580.

If it doesn't come with a holster, I will need to add a holster and some ammo, while still staying under $650.

Which would everyone recommend and why? Any other recommendations?

No, I do not want another Beretta 92.

Of the options you listed I would choose the USP, if you can EDC a gun that size. If not, the P2000 is my suggestion.

What about a CZ SP01? I prefer it to the 07.

Of what you listed, I'd recommend the p2000 or Sig P228. The USP is a little big and I've seen the mags break (admittedly a rental gun that sees a lot of rounds). Personally I wouldn't consider the CZ or the Taurus.

Out of your list my choice would easily be the SIG P228 assuming it is in pretty decent condition. The P226 and P228 are my top favorite 9MM pistols and I own a pretty decent variety.

A new SIG SP2022 would also be something to look at though personally I would still go for a nice P228.

Good luck!!

USP mags? Among the best mags made, although expensive. Must have been beat to ****.

What? Taurus I understand.

What's your reason for not approving CZ?

I am interested in the P228. Teh pics he sent aren't good, and I am hesitant to drive almost an hour and a half without a better idea of it's condition.

Of the guns you listed I would get the P228(just look at it's rep)

My EDC is a SA XDm 3.8 .40 in a Mitch Rosen Premier Express OWB holster. And I love it. It has great ergonomics, it's dependable, accurate, and shoots comfortably.


And I sometimes(mood thing) carry my sig p226 in the same model holster. This gun is the epitome of dependability, after 20+ years of use it just went to the factory this year for the SSP because it jammed multiple times in a qualification test(and I am not sure it wasn't the ammo used)

An FNP or FNX in 9mm. I'm not a huge DA/SA fan but they shoot very well, and can be carried cocked and locked.

USP .40 mags are plastic and dare I say inferior to plastic GLOCK mags. We've Had several split open on the feed lips. Now my USP Compact mags, those are bullet proof.

Of that list I would lean toward the P228 also.

They are phenomenal range guns, accurate as heck. Of all the guns I've seen compete in production division, the CZs seem to have hiccups. Some guys carry spare slide stops.

+1
Any HK, if it's not to big for carry, would be fine.
I've got several models myself.

Recommend saving a little more cash and look at a P30 40 Light LEM.
Its ergonomics are game changing.

Full Disclosure:
The HK I carry the most is a P2000SK 357 Sig Light LEM.

The P228 has already been sold to another buyer.

I did run across a STI Spartan 1911 in 9mm.....

P2022 in 9mm and you would have money leftover for a holster. $500 with sig sites here . P239 will run you in the $700 to $800 range if you can't find a CPO model.

I didn't know they were known to do that.

Anyone else care to share their experiences or knowledge about CZ?
