On another note - your Shield trigger will improve after a bit of use. I have a Shield that I carry and beat up a lot and the trigger is fairly good now. I have about 3000 rounds through it and many, MANY dry firings.

My buddy just bought one and he is new to handguns so I got him into a routine - he takes his new Shield and dry fires it at least 25 times every night while sitting in front of the TV. I told him to not worry about aiming, just dry fire and keep the gun still. I have him working on pulling the trigger without moving / jerking the gun.

Side benefit - improves the Shield trigger! ;-)

And.... I purchased a blued CZ75B. It fit much better than the 92FS and to be honest felt way better than any polymer gun I have handled.

If all works out I have a early morning range tripped planned....

Exactly this^^^^^ You will not be disappointed.

Hope to see the range report soon. If I lived in NJ I would have considered purchasing a black powder pistol, seems like it would probably end up being legal to own longer.

I have had two SR1911, they both functioned excellent. They were not 9mm they were both 45. I Loved them both. That being said, I got rid of my SR1911 because of two reasons really. First is the 1911 will not except my Light and Laser combo for self defense on my night stand. Second that does not help you since you live in a communist state, was round capacity. Even in 45 acp. the SR series will hold a total of 11 rounds. The P series that I have in 9mm holds 16 rounds of 9mm. So those two reasons are the reason I would stick with the SR series.

As for the CZ75b, I hear they are excellent and I have almost ordered one twice now. I have smaller hands and I hear that the grip is not that small and that I probably would not like it. I keep them in mind and if I ever see one I would hold it to find out. I never see them period in my neck of the woods here in Kentucky. I do not think I have ever seen one on any shelf of any LGS of course I do not even look at firearms at Gander Mountain or Cabelas. They are way to high on their prices.

Just the way I look at things in the world of Jeff

Did not notice that you bought the CZ75, Congratulations. Comment on the grip size when you get the chance.

I demo for CZ. (just getting that out of the way)

What brought me to CZ (long before I had a connection to them) was the ergonomics of the 75 series pistols. I have average sized hands (in the lab, I wear size Large disposable nitrile gloves). On one of the range trips, I brought my steel frame CZ75 Compact. A friend of mine with giant meat-mitt hands tried it and loved the feel (he bought a CZ Custom SDP a few weeks later). One of the sales staff at the gun shop also tried it. She has tiny hands and loved the feel of the 75 Compact. The grip size/shape was extremely well designed to fit a wide variety of hands.
