Because he specifically mentioned considering a CZ75 Compact, but said it was too heavy. The PCR basically a lighter CZ75 Compact. It was a relevant comparison.Or a Sig P365.
Just because every thread like this needs 80 guys recommending a completely different gun.
Have you considered a semi-auto shotgun instead??? That's very important to own.

Where did he suggest a semi-auto shotgun??
Jesus NES WTF! 38 posts in and no body said "buy a Glock"
I haven’t had any problems with my EMP, but I don’t even have 1000 rounds through it yet. I’m seriously considering using it for my default everyday carry, but that would involve going from a DA/SA P229 to an SA only cocked and locked 1911 type. The other two guns in my carry rotation (depending on how much concealment I need) are a Shield 9 mm and a LCR in .327 fed mag, neither of which have a safety. So to switch to the EMP I have to do enough reps with it to be confident that muscle memory will take the safety off on a draw. The EMP is almost .4 in narrower and the Contour’s beveled butt makes it much easier to conceal, to the point where I could probably eliminate the Shield and just use the EMP for EDC and the LCR for when I had to pocket carry. Since I’m in MA the EMP’s 9 round mag is not an issue (and you can get 10 rounders for it, but the extension kind of negates the advantage of the bevel).The comments about reliability in "OG" designs (for .45) converted to 9mm were the biggest hold up. I looked at EMP's but keep reading a lot of comments about the ejectors loosening up.
CZ discontinued the Rami in 2020 because of the CZ P10s.
Posted by a guy with a user name based on the inventors of the original jam-o-matic. LOL.Compact 1911 = POS Jam-o-matic.
On the up swing you will either get really great at clearing malfuctions or Kiltinthestreets (in which case the malfuntion wont be a problem anymore)
The older I get, the smaller/lighter I want. Used to carry a Gov't 1911 in .45. Then Glock with 17rds. Back doesn't like it anymore.Same here! I would carry a 226 or a 220 all day if I had too.
SHIELD! (tag, you're it). Shield's are OK.Sorry. Then clearly an AR-10.
I was gonna, but said 365. Lol
just dont say Shield.
P-10 is polymer, though.CZ discontinued the Rami in 2020 because of the CZ P10s.
Too big.I'd blow my brains out with the 9mm 1911 but the chances of me dying are pretty low, so the CZ wins. I'm also a CZ fanboy so I can't say too much.
Would rather carry a P-01 or PCR though.
I'm against DA/SA due to the inconsistent trigger pull. Maybe 30 years ago there needed to be that setup, but today's guns? I just don't see it.Neither, but I'd pick the 1911 over the Rami b/c I despise DA/SA for carry. I'm not sure if I even OWN a DA/SA anymore. No. I've got a single-stack and double-stack Makarov. And a PPK. Damn. I gotta get rid of some guns. ROFL!!!
I still revert to slide to (edit) chamber IF the slide 'unlocks' when I put a mag in. I'm not going to trust an unknown in a gunfight. If I lose a single round, so be it. The rarity of reloading in a 'gunfight', I don't think that will be a factor in winning or losing. Just one opinion among many.Had a P365. Had several Glocks. No more polymer. I do use the hand-on-slide to release method. It's what I was trained in. Instructor at NRA Range Officer course yelled at me. "We don't do that. We use the slide release". Well, after 20 years, I do.
How small are you? My frame is tiny and I can conceal a Glock 17/19 without printing. Keister carry doesn't count here either.Well, if you insist on being a moron and having something sticking out, go for it. I prefer to have something concealed and have no one even suspect that I'm carrying something. To each his own.
Personally I don’t have a problem with the different pull weights. The DA pull on my Gray Guns modified P229 averages 5 lbs 4 oz, as good as most striker fired SAs. The SA pull is just below 2 lbs making for easy followup shots.I'm against DA/SA due to the inconsistent trigger pull. Maybe 30 years ago there needed to be that setup, but today's guns? I just don't see it.
