I would rather have the 9mm, its easier on the targets. :lol: Are the 9mm conversions still available for the CZ52?

one shot, one plate

Default I'd rather have my CZ

So would most of our troops that get sent into action with the stupid 9mm. I got rid of my 9 a long time ago.

....make it count

Yes they are but I don't know why anyonewould want one. Half the fun is shooting the 7.62X25 cartridge...9mm's are a dime a dozen!

S.Sumner & Mikey posted about this a while back they were talking about the velocity of the 7.62x25 being as fast as the 357 magnum. While not being the same bullet weight your picture says it all?? BigBill

Cheaper Than Dirt has Sellier & Bellot ammo in 7.62x25 cheap. Hey I'm the Frugal one!!!!!!!! Shop smart buy more!!!!!! More bang for our buck too!!!

Nutz - did I miss a picture??? Dang! The guys are right, 9mms are a dime a dozen but the 7.62 is a blaster. Make certain anyone shooting next to you on the range has ear protection on or stands a bit behind ya - them 7.62s have a'concussive' report. Doancha jus luv it. Mikey.

Actually, I would rather have a .45 ACP. Seems we went through this all during/after the Mora uprising...

This was a comparison on small caliber...the .45 is a great caliber, I have an arsenal refinished Ballester/Molina and love it!

Some people prefer smaller calibers. :grin:
