Yeah they're typically overpriced. I have a friend that works there and he's been giving me a heads up when stuff comes in stock...even though I'm in AZ now. The good news is they're consistent...and while they were overpriced before the panic...they are now a bargain as they haven't jacked up their prices any more than normal. Got two sequentially serial numbered Stag lowers for $150/each. I'm not complaining. Now I can build an AR for my father in law. Of course he didn't want an AR until after all the ban talk started...so now it's going to be much harder to find the parts to build one for him. Glad already got mine built years ago. Here's the most recent...registered stamped SBR for those worried about it being "too short"...as are the suppressors...

I like the P1, it has a little more history going for it, ammo is going to be a little more easy to find....however I will not fire anything more than 115 grain in mine no matter what others may say....so that is a little hard to find these days.

The CZ could be used as a CCW if that need is there, but while it would not be my first choice as there are better guns out there, but in its price bracket I do know that people use it for that.

The ammo for the CZ is going to be a little more crazy, and I know of no american company that makes it....if the world keeps going nutty, who knows if imports will still happen.

If it was me, as I have other guns I would take the P1, If I was on a budget and wanted something to carry I would take the CZ.

I'm now leaning towards the CZ for my first C&R. My reasoning is that the CZ supplies are starting to dry up, whereas the P1s look like they will still be around later. Also, the P1s I see currently do not have the pinned frame, so I may as well hold out for that feature. Als, the CZ is almost a hundred bucks cheaper... I do appreciate your comments.

Cry

Decided I am going to sell my AR-50 and one other of my rifles.

I had always wanted a .50 BMG so I got one a couple of years ago, but there is no place to shoot it around here. The only club that had a range to shoot it (only 600 yards) shut it down for .50 BMG due to safety concerns (they are "evaluating") and the only other range is hundreds of miles away. So that leaves going over into the desert someplace on the dryside and shooting on public land - which pretty much means it won't happen either (too lazy and too much time).

I didn't even get a scope for it - that was the other thing; I wanted a good long range scope and that would have been another $2K.

I just decided that I have better things to put my money into now that I have a house and shop and land, and I would not get around to shooting this rifle until I retire (probably at least another 5 years now that I have a mortgage).

Oh well...

Back when that was my only bushiness I built a fair amount of 50's. I heard the same thing many times, no place to shoot them and the cost (cheap compared to now), Plus the fun meter dims pretty fast with a little range time.
You picked a good time.

Sources for both are getting thin, and who knows what the future brings.

The CZ is a GREAT little gun...little on the heavy side, double action...that funky poly-whatever the heck barrel and not regular rifling.

The main thing is that there is no place to shoot it safely - not at the distance they are meant to shoot at - IMO 600 yards is minimal for that rifle and would not be a whole lot of fun. My original intention was to keep it until I retired and then go in search of a place to shoot it when I had nothing but time on my hands.

But yeah, for the cost, unless a person has the time and place to shoot it and liked to shoot at really long distances with really large cartridges, it probably wouldn't be as fun as just plinking with a .22 (my fave).

I don't know about it being a good time to sell - everybody wants an AR-15 or AK or something like that. Few people want a 50 BMG. But we'll see...

I am not inclined to get a table or go hauling it around a gun show so I guess I will put a sign on my back while hauling around the other rifle at a gun show.

Newest addition to my collection. Tough to find in this configuration and this one is used but nearly pristine condition. Can't wait to get it dirty!

Funny, it looks just like my single six. Nice to see a revolver amongst all the semi autos.

I think the stainless steel Ruger single actions are wonderful handguns. That one is particularly desireable. And I agree with the guy who posted above...it is nice to see these amongst the sea of steel stampings and plastic that dominate the market today.

Dave, I can't believe you noticed that. The last line is "bomb everything." Back in those days, the US would cease bombing as a result of the Paris Peace Talks. Every time that happened, the VC & NVA would be very active and we'd get in more fights with them. A long time ago . . . . . .
