A recent experience has me thinking about trying to get into a shooting league, if I can find one locally. There doesn't seem to be much going on anywhere around me. I'm interested in production guns, not highly modified race guns. Basically, if I couldn't also practically press a gun I used for competition into a self defense role of some sort, then it doesn't really matter to me. The full size semi autos I own now are as follows: S&W 1911 E series HK 45 HK VP9 Sig P220 10mm DA/SA Sig P220 10 mm SAO Wilson Combat/Beretta 92 Brig Tac (or WilBer as I refer to it) I think the only guns out of these that would make any sense is the VP9, if I added a long slide kit, or the WilBer. The VP9 has a super light frame though, and for that reason I just don't see it being the best option for competition. The Beretta is nice, and I did have Wilson work the trigger over, but I'm sort of in the exploration mindset right now. I do not own any CZ or Tanfoglio handguns, and I've always been curious about the design. I handled a Shadow 2 and it felt great in the hand. I could use a slightly larger grip, but it was pretty close. I've heard very good things about the Tanfoglio Limited lines, and that they can be tuned up to be truly wonderful guns. I've also been thinking about a Tactical Sport Orange if I wanted to go the SAO route. So I'm curious what folks with experience think about this. Even if I can't find a local league, or decide I don't care for it, I'm still interested in owning one of these guns. But I don't see myself buying all three. It's probably obvious I am not aware of all the competition rules that are involved and am really just saying at this point, "Gee that might be fun. I should look into a gun for that purpose." I suppose I better do more research into finding a local league and finding what they allow before buying anything. None the less, I'd like to here comparisons and thoughts on the Tanfo/CZ debate.
