They're really letting their accessory cost hold them back from a bigger market.
How did they "fail" with the FNP, FNS, or FNX?

I think the FNS 9 is an amazing pistol.

It is. Perfect grip, massive TG opening, full ambi, great mags, steel sights.

CZ's Glock. SIG's Glock. S&W's Glock. Glock's Glock.

Just buy the damn Glock. Its all Glock.

Yep. I think the Arex is only non-CZ handgun Im looking at owning for carry.

Other than that a good 1911, a MkIII Hi-Power, my Mak and a Tokarev. However I do plan on building my own custom Glock 19 or 17 with non-Glock parts.

Glock 19 Sig p320, VP9, USP 9

I think CZ is stepping up
I almost bought a VP9 until I saw the torture test of the thing where the guy set it down gently on some dirt and then the thing went right into malfunction mode.

H&K calls the VP9 a consumer pistol, not a duty pistol.

I was moving towards striker fired pistols, CZ brought me back to my senses.

Have owned 75 since around mid 90s in Finland and bought P09 here last year. With +2 baseplate I had yesterday on my trucks glovebox CZ with total of 43 rounds of 9mm hollowpoints in 2 mags ready to go if SHTF. Lets see if that P10C replaces P09 as my G2 gun.
Visited LGS, they have two P10C coming today(Wed).With my paperwork already done I can have one on Thursday. Both FDE, I prefer black guns but since I have never owned FDE color gun and I have longer beard than operators have I might go with FDE, just to get it before weekend.And to feel, you know, sort of like a shitkicking operator ninja.

Gotcha.



Well not yet, but that is mine. I decided to leave it to my LGS over the memorial weekend since they haven't sold my Sig yet and would like to get the money from that instead of trade it. And don't have time to shoot this CZ before going for a motorcycle trip early tomorrow and I don't ever carry a new gun that I haven't tested with enough rounds and SD ammo.

Never owned FDE gun, well now I do. Didn't want to wait until they get black ones, they told me that could take several weeks. They only got two of these now so I thought I take it. Never know when I have to leave USA so at least now I have P10C and can go shoot it.
