CZ PCR. Fantastic pistol.
Ones I own personally are a SIG P6, P239 SAS Gen2, P228, M11-A1, HK P2000, Ruger SR1911 Commander length, and a CZ P-01
P30SK for me.
P30SK....Carry it everyday unless hiking out in wild, then it is a .40 Beretta PX.
Since I don't really do strikers, that list is pretty long.
For years the Les Baer "Stinger" (CCO) in .45ACP:
Now, the HK P2000 V1 LEM in 357SIG:
Love the S&W Chiefs Special, especially with those grips!
A few of my favorite compact, hammer fired semi-autos:
Colt Combat Commander
Colt Officers Model ACP
Beretta Model 70S
Smith and Wesson 3913 for me
Starting to see less and less of these as time ticks by
For just 99 dollars, the Remington RM380 has to be pretty high up on the smile/cash ratio scale:
I have to give the nod to my Sig 238. Reliable, a pleasure to shoot, and carries so easily, I've forgotten it was there.
My runner up is my Mauser HSc. I love that thing! It gives over 100fps more velocity than the 238 with the same ammo, and I don't mind at all the blowback style recoil. (Snappy)
But with the euro style heel mag release, and the backwards safety, it'll never again be in my #1 spot.
I also like the Rohrbaugh R9 - not because its fun to shoot, because it is not fun to shoot, but because it disappears in a front pocket, and it is light enough that I can carry it every day in business or business casual attire.
I found this in a cracker jack box, but it works for me.
Where are they 99 dollars?
We must shop in way different grocery stores as I have never found a prize like that in any box of Cracker Jack I ever had!
Well it is hammer fired and compact...
50 yard group
Of the hammer-fired pistols I own it would be the SIG P229 if we are calling that "compact". I consider it more to be a mid-size pistol. Second place would go to by Beretta mini-Cougar 8040F and third place to my Beretta mini-Cougar 8000D, but again, I consider those to be mid-sized by today's criteria.
Of the hammer-fired pistols I own that I would consider to be truly compact, my favorite is my SIG P250 subcompact.
It was the big box
I was thinking the same thing about my guns but then I figured most of them (like the Combat Commander, Commander, P229, and P01), were smaller versions of a full size gun so that qualified them as being compact.
P30SK with a LEM trigger.
SIG P938. All Day, Every Day.
I have had the Colt Officer ACP, nice gun, and I have the Beretta 70s, my favorite 22. pistol.
Another P30sk guy.
And my Beretta 84f.
The Colt Officers Model ACP has been a solid performer fro quite some time with a definite preference for 185 gr. loads. Typically you will find the Beretta Model 70S in my bag on nearly every trip I make to the range. Part plinker, part target gun and all fun!
