Hello,

I'm new here (also a member on shotgunworld.com) and need answers to this question: I'm looking to purchase my 1st Handgun (9mm) and most of what I've read says to purchase a .22 cal to practice with first. As I began my research, I ran across this handgun
http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/prod ... s_id/13655

and this adapter
http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/prod ... s_id/31192

I figured if I purchased this set, I'd kill 2 birds with one stone! Thanks in advance to all who respond!

Excellent choice for your first pistol! I own several CZ's including a CZ75B 40 cal, and I've never had a single problem. As far as that 22 change-over, don't waist your money. Where ever you read about starting out on a 22 is a bunch of dog crap. Youir 9mm is an excellent beginners caliber as well as a defensive weapon. Learning to shoot on a 22 is a total waist of money, time, and you won't get any beneficial experience for shooting your 9mm.

I just purchased a 75b 9mm in polished stainless. It is just my second pistol. My first is a Walter p38 Spreewerke. It is in great condition, and i feel bad shooting it. So I wanted another 9mm that I wouldn't mind shooting. I can't wait to get out this weekend to shoot.

theres some validity to buying a 22.

1. ITS CHEAPER TO SHOOT.
2. IF ITS CHEAPER TO SHOOT, YOU WILL SHOOT MORE.

Look at past events on ammo prices. not many months ago, you couldnt find a 22 conversion kit to save your life. Beretta, CZ, 1911, ect. those that snooze loose.

Look at people that have 45acps. They are buying 9s and 22s so (what do they say?). ....so they can shoot more...
...so they can practice more....

btw, the Kadet kit is a great addtion, but i eventually just bought the complete pistol.

i still have the conversion kit and its still gets use.

if you like the CZ and it fits you needs then go for it. most people like the CZ, some dont. just like the Glock.

if you can, try to find a place to rent/handle/shoot one before you drop the $$$. its alot cheaper then having buyers remorse. Since there are alot of poeple that know/want a CZ, you could have a harder time selling it if you decidet to change your mind.

also, on the Kadet kit, read the instructions on the fitting and dont go overboard on the filing either if you have to.
