Another On The Way!

I have had my P-64 for awhile and like it's compact size and reasonably stout round. It has proven to be a very accurate little pistol, too. I installed the PolishIron grips, and it is actually pleasant to shoot, now.

Parts for these are difficult to come by and they are known to break the barrel safety more than any other part. Other than that, they are very reliable. If you take care when setting the safety with a round chambered, not the let the hammer drop by itself, damaging the safety can be avoided.

I like the idea of having at least two firearms that use the rounds I keep on hand in any quantity and this meant another 9 x 18 Makarov eater was needed.

I considered buying a CZ-82 next, but opted for another P-64 and just pulled the trigger on it from Classic Firearms. They say the conditions are very good to excellent. The first one from them was in excellent condition and looked unissued. I am hoping for one nearly as nice, although my expectations are more reasonable. The nice thing about having two will be that I should be able to keep at least one operational, at all times.

At some point in the future, a CZ-82 will be part of my collection.

My new toy should arrive next week. I will report on it's condition soon after.

AIM has shooter condition Cz82s for $269...

I picked up a pair of P64s from SOG right before they sold out and then a month later a Cz82 from classic. Awesome pistols.

Or wait and buy my "spare" for a reasonable markup to make it feel like I made a good investment on buying two when I could get them on sale and discount for two

I figure some day they will finally sell out.

I took a cz82 out and shot it 2 wks ago. Its a great mid size pistol. Well made. Solid. A good value for concealed carry and decent size for target work. I bought mine about 12 years ago when i was first trying out my 03 and amazed a c&r pistol could be shipped here ( for the doubters, there was a letter posted on the internet on letterhead from the asst atty general assigned to MSP saying ok to use cr 003) to buy cr pistol from out of state. So i called him. He took the call wnd i asked if he had signed the letter...was it real. He laughed and said, if that’s my signature on the letter it’s real). Don’t like the plastic grips but have seen nice wood after markets.

That's OK. I thought Guitarman was having another kid.
Which takes us full circle to Goatman.
