    OK guys need a little help deciding, I had a Springfield XD45 but gave that to my daughter, I now have the pleasure of picking up a new pistol for my carry gun. These are what I am looking at.

    1. CZ97B in 45
    2. CZ75 in 9x21
    3. Sig P226 in 9mm
    4. Charles Daly ZDA in 9mm
    5.FM high power in 9mm

    All of these are new in box and are priced accordingly, of the guns listed which would you all pick and why I know there will be differences in each,But would like your opinions.

    I own a P226 (in .40) and love the way it feels.
    Shoot very well.

    You might also look at the Ruger SC9.

    I have them all here with me, amd have my prefrences just wanting other opinions on which some of u may like better. The CZ is what I am considering the most simply because I have plenty of 45 ammo

    The CZ 97 is big AND heavy......maybe too much to make an honest carry gun.

    Any gun chambered for 9x21? Good luck finding good defensive ammo for it.

    I vote the Sig 226 or the FN Hi-Power, whichever one feels best.

    Out of the choices here, I'd go with the CZ 75, but in 9x19, not 9x21. 9x21 ammo is almost impossible to find where I live.

    Owning both flavors of CZ's, I go with the 75 for everyday carry. It is true that the 97 is big and heavy, but I do occasionally carry it OWB without discomfort.

    The awful truth is that I consistently shoot the 97 better than my 9's.
    It is just something else accurate.

    It is spooky to think of what it would do if I got it tuned..........

    I will probably be the minority and say the ZDA or aka the Zastava CZ999, is a sweet pistol and generaly patterned after the Sig 226. The cool feature on the ZDA is the low round indicator, that is pretty much a dull pin that hits your palm when you get down to 4 rounds left. The one I had was dead nuts reliable with all ammo.
    I aslo had a Zastava CZ05 in 40.S&W that was a good pistol as well. The CZ05 was the next generation ZDA. Good luck!

    High Power if you like s/a, CZ75 if you like d/a or can find one in s/a.

    I vote for the Sig P226. I just picked one up and love the way it feels. It has minimal recoil, and it is fun to shoot. I have put 300 rounds through it so far and have no problems.

    SIG P226 w/night sights would be my choice for a weapon. I have well over 10K rounds through mine, with no appreciable wear and not one single malfunction of any kind. I do own the CZ 75B and CZ 75D, at under $500 they are decent reliable pistols, but not in the league of the SIG P226. The CZ was a deal now prices are too high for their quality of fit and finish IMO, good guns though. The CZ 75D PCR is my daily beater, right size, right price, reliable and accurate enough for me. If I could only own one it would be a tough decision between the SIG P226 and my STI Custom 1911.
