Tell me about the CZ-82
« on: 23 Jun 2014 - 04:21:39 »
Out of all the C&R handguns, the CZ appears to be the best looking and most practical for an actual defensive handgun. I just want your all's thoughts on them, do you recommend them for home defense/carry, etc.  If so, is there a wide range of defensive ammo in 9x18?

Most of all, pics of yours if you got em!

Hornady makes some excellent 9x18mm ammo. I used to CC a PA-63.  It loved that Hornady ammo.  It's very pleasant to shoot and has good lethality.  I wouldn't feel undergunned at all carrying a 9x18.  That being said, an old steel frame pistol is going to be heavy compared to modern lightweight 9mms like the Walther PPS, M&P Shield, etc.

I'm thinking more for the house, something for the wife to have laying around while I'm working. Higher capacity, low recoil, still an effective cartridge.

I love mine. Sweetest trigger on any milsuro out there. I make my own brass by trimming down 9X19. As far as defensive carry, you can load it a bit hotter than .380. The poly rifling is cool too.

I had a Bulgarian Makarov that was fun to shoot but, I do like that the CZ-82 holds 12 rounds over the 8 round Makarov. 9x18 ammo can be a challenge to find though. .380 and 9x18 are to pistol calibers that I NEVER see on the shelves around here.

Pretty much every gun store/pawn shop around here carries 9x18.  It's usually wildly overpriced compared to shopping online though.  I got most of mine from ammunitiontogo.com when I had my PA-63.

It's settled, after I get my LTCH renewed I'm getting my C&R and ordering a CZ-82.

Fan-freakin'-tastic gun. Reed's ammo sells high quality JHP ammo for a reasonable price, and if yours is squiffy about hollow points, I believe Cor-Bon still sells Pow-R-Ball in 9X18. Marschal grips sells absolutely beautiful wood grips for it, too. I plan on getting a set of rosewood grips for my  Hi-Power from them, actually.

I like the pistol itself, and I have been wanting one for a few years, but i can't seem to convince myself that i need the 9x18mm.


That and being broke kinda makes decisions for me.

I want one too! If I had the money to spare, I'd snatch one up in a heartbeat.
