FYI;

"Wonder Nine" just refers to a semi-auto double stack 9mm with a DA trigger for at least the first shot. Pretty much every full-sized and compact DA 9mm meets those standards these days.


However, the CZ was one of the original Wonder Nines back in the 70's, if that's what you meant.

Friend has something like this with a ...modified? choke... maybe, and a pistol grip.

We could seriously not believe how well you could shoot skeet with it.
One hand quick point. Heck, it kicked less than many handguns.
Made even me feel like Wyatt Earp and I'm mediocre at best.
Actually I stink.

Certainly be my close to medium Zombpocalypse piece.
Definitely a purple people eater.

Lol.
Always surprising what guns work good for what. A couple of years ago I saw a guy with a Mossberg 500 tactical and a neck sling out deer hunting. I thought he was crazy at the time, but with that shorter stock and barrel it was probably a pretty handy little brush gun.

First pistol I bought on my own was a Springfield XD9 service (4" barrel, 10 round mags in the state of kommiefornia). It was their "essentials" package for $400 with a promo that got me 3 more mags from the factory for free.

first handgun was a browning hi power 9mm that was bought for me by my parents when i was ~10 y/o. still have it and still shoots well.

first one i purchased was a taurus 24/7 pro c ds .45. too thick for easy conceal in summer, but used it for my range test and went 50/50. wouldnt mind getting a single stack .40 or 9mm in it's place.

That's only if it goes 'Pew-Pew-Pew-Pew!'
'Pew! Pew!' denotes separate trigger pulls.

I bought a g23 when I was 20, carried it on duty for several years, put a metric ton of lead down the pipe before I moved to a g35 for duty and the 23 was my carry piece to and from the lot.

I don't shoot it anymore but probably the 1 thats not for sale.
