Have you ever found a model gun that makes your other guns seem irrelevant?

    I got into a CZ this year and I find it suits me very well. In fact it suits me so well I find myself not caring about several of my other 9mm guns anymore.

    I find myself thinking about trading away a few more guns this year to fund a TSO.

    I wonder if I’d regret it though.

    This is what I’m thinking about trading in. It’s a Wilson Combat/Beretta Brig Tac with a Wilson trigger job. It’s a fine shooter and one of the first 1000 Wilson put out, but honestly my CZ’s factory trigger is nicer and the CZ fits me better.


    Just curious if others have gone down the path of brand consolidation and been happy with it or if it was regretted.

    Thought about turning in my VP9 and/or HK45.

    Not asking what to do, just wondering if folks have done this and if they were happy afterward.

    It’s called CZitus! Yes, it’s real and yes very contagious.

    But in all seriousness you should think back to what led you to purchase said firearms you are about to sell, it may give you perspective on whether or not you are about to make a mistake.

    Heavens! Whichever one of my handguns that I am holding at the time temporarily diminishes the others ... until I put it down and pick up another one, and then that one ... well, y'know ... :)

    There are times when I've bought a handgun even though I already owned one that was similar.

    A few of those times the new one was so superior to the old one that I traded the old one away towards something else, knowing that I would probably never shoot it again.

    I feel the same about my Glocks and my S&W revolvers. Once I bought my first Glock my interest in other semiautos disappeared. I have purchased and have tried various pistols but I find I always compare them to Glocks.

    I feel the same regarding my S&W revolvers vs other revolvers. Of course, the numbers of other available revolvers aren’t as many as autoloaders.

    I feel the same about J frames as it pertains to carry guns Glocks for everything else except hunting and if I got into 10mm I could use them for that.

    As to the J frame, there are better carry guns but the J frame works for me every time no matter the situation or weather.

    Sorry, I have been spoiled!

    Nothing like an M134D!

    You will. Or at least I have.

    A coworker and myself last night were discussing guns we have owned and of course what we regret parting with. In general six months after I sell or trade a gun off I will find a need for it and regret selling it (even if I haven’t touched it in years).

    My solution is too avoid going to gun shops and gun shows to avoid getting a severe case of “I wants” until I have the dino to buy whatever is on my list.

    Like you Glocks are my polymer semi measuring stick. And CZ’s and HiPowers my metal framed measuring stick. Such is life in the renaissance age of firearms.

    The GLOCK G23.4.

    It has to lose the argument - before another pistol is chosen.

    I knew just from your header this would be about a cz. Great firearm! My go to favorite at the range is my standard 75b. Hope 1 day to have a Shadow.

    For actual carry/HD/SD/SHTF forget about all others are my Glock 10mm’s now though. Once I got those about 4 months ago the others seemed neutered. Love my G29 and 20

    Every time I am convinced [new/current gun] makes all the rest irrelevant, I inevitably dig one of my previous favorites from the safe and change my mind. Usually seems to change about every six months.

    "Brand" means little to me.. I do like variety.

    I want the best gun for my money regardless of the name on the slide

    I enjoy variety (with a certain love for Colts), something would really have to be on the "A-List" (that is some gun I have always wanted), to make me sell one or more of my guns so I could obtain it.

    Hasn't happened yet but there recently was a SIG P210 that I found to be mighty tempting...mighty tempting!

    I should have said “model and variants of”. It’s not a brand specific thing.

    Whatever that means.

    The .40/180 gr. subsonic G23.4 is Hammer reliable, very Precise, and Big/Small/Thick/Thin/Heavy/Light/Powerful/Soft... enough.

    Add to that the option of the 5.3" .357Sig Bbl., and either S&B 140 gr. FMJ-FP or 147 gr. HDY Custom XTP-HP, at > 1300 fps. at the muzzle, and you have a dandy field pistol.

    I have yet to find a pistol that fits my hand as well as the p320. I have had a few other polymer nines, but right now it sort of rules the roost. Glock, FN, SA, etc. The compact frame of the small variety just melts into my mitts.

    "I'm the new best thing,
    better than you've ever seen,
    I'm gonna be the king,
    I bring that ching ching ching"

    I wanted a M&P 340 for Christmas but I think I will just stick with my 442 and I think about replacing my Shield with a G26 but probably will wait on that. I am learning that for me, the "wanting," is about as good and sometimes better; than the "having."

    I would try parting with number 2 or 3 on the "to go" list and see if that bothers you at all before getting rid of any more

    I do not think I have purchased any hand gun that has made the rest of my hand guns "Irrelevant". I do have a "holy grail" search for the optimum self defense hand gun that suits my purposes.

    Currently, I use an H&K P30SK on a regular basis although I sometimes use an S&W 642 or a Walther PPK when the P30SK is a bit too large.

    I generally keep all the guns I buy. I like to shoot them and those purchased for self defense sometimes get cycled back through in the self defense role.

    I've owned all the usual stuff in handguns starting in the early '70s. The one type I own the most of today are Glocks for their relative simplicity. I've owned CZs and variants, but they eventually got sold off.

    I find it hard to beat Ruger's SR9C.
