    Its been a while since I've purchased a new gun (2 years to be exact), but I went to my first post-Obama era gun show yesterday. It was a little on the sparse side, but I managed to pick this up:

    CZ 75 Compact

    CZs have interested me lately and I hoped I'd be able to find one. I finally found a dealer that had 4; my Compact, a 75 B, a 75 SA in .40 and a P-07. It was hard to decide between the compact and 75B, but the compact felt just a little bit better in my hand. Unfortunately, I only had half a box of ammo on hand to try it out today, but it ran fine and felt great. Now for some accessory shopping.

    As for the rest of the show, it was somewhat unremarkable. Prices were so-so and 22 ammo was still way too high. I did get to check out a couple of newer pieces like the Ruger LCR 9mm and Mark IV. I also saw a Remington RP9 that wasn't very impressive. The grip was pretty slim, but the slide felt too big.

    Nice purchase. By "accessory shopping" I assume you mean ammo!
