I stopped counting ~750 rds.
After this weekend with the GK'S fun shoot well over 1K.
I'm not going to say that there has not been any issues along the way.
But I'm very comfortable with the sky as a self-defense gun.

So true.
Renting a handgun is small change...you'll more than likely have to buy there ammo.
In the end a great way to sample several guns on the cheap.

There is an indoor range here that does rent guns, but I haven't been there in years ... prefer outdoors.

My previous satirical gun comment was analogous to the saying "we don't buy beer, we rent it".
Was trying to imply that the cost of temporarily owning a gun is like paying rent.
I probably could have written that better.

Happy to read that you're creating memories and teaching gun safety to your GK's.
Cheers!

Hey economod - I picked up the B6PC this AM, got home, disassembled, oiled a tad, and went to my clubs outdoor range. No problem racking (I'm in my 7th decade of life) and found this pistol functions and operations to be a fine choice. Shot off a box of Federal 115 grain and shot my Ruger SR22 in between
loads. I'm hitting the range again on Friday. Thanks for your feedback before I purchased this fine example of workmanship.

Nice!
Yeah, there's a lot to like about the CZ design.
And Sarsilmaz builds them as well as anybody.
Reliable, respectable pistols at bargain prices ... enjoy!

Got it back Nov. 3rd. They replaced the crappy stippled frame (not by me) with a new one. Not sure what else they did to it besides replacing the broken ejector.

When I had my CPX 2 returned after sending it in for a cracked frame at the rear pin (right) they also noted on the work order that a new recoil rod, plus a new extractor and a new firing pin were replaced with updated parts. My serial number sequence was #149xxx. Purchase date of this pistol was July 2014. and the repair date was April 2015. About a month later I called SCCY and acted as an unaware owner by asking "Are their any updates on pistols between serial numbers 130000 and 160000"? I was told that the above elements were improved since the manufacturing date of these earlier serial numbers.
.
Also 'getvicious' if you read this - the Ruger SR22 is a sweet operator. You and your dear wife will have great satisfaction with 'CCI MINI MAGS' in that pistol.

Oversized pins and super glue worked flawlessly for walking pins. Now disassembly, it sucks as I broke a few punches trying to get them out. Once I find a reasonable shop to shop I will send it back and hope for the best. May even change the color if it's shipped formlike $20 or less.

Hey economod, a buddy saw my B6PC last week and traded in his Ruger LC9 and got himself one too. 200+ rounds through mine so far and not one glitch at all.

They sure are fun to shoot!
Besides being totally reliable and ergonomically correct, the thing I like the most is the exposed hammer.
I was very accustomed to cocking my 4" .357 and firing it SA, or just dryfire decocking with my thumb on the hammer.
I can do the same with my B6P, and it holds 3x the ammo, has a longer barrel, is more slender, and weighs less.
There's nothing I don't like about this gun. Enjoy!

Do you conceal carry that... or just use it for home defense/range use?

I carry it, inside the belt hoslter, the same way I carried the CPX. Comparing it to the CPX2, the B6PC 'compact' is 1/3 inch longer in the rear due to the beaver tail and in the front it's 3/4 inch longer (CPX barrell 3.1 inch / B6PC 3.8 inch). The new gun is also 1/4 inch taller and the weight is 10oz. more.

I only carry my full-size B6P in cold weather, OWB inside belt under a jacket or long sweatshirt.
The barrel is long enough that it usually protrudes an inch or more from under a T-shirt.

My next pistol might be a single stack nine for year-round carry.
Am considering the PT709 Slim, but prices have been high, ever since the PT111-G2 went gold. No rush.

Have you considered a compact/subcompact double stack?

Well, yeah. Kinda hard not to. I mean, I had a cpx. I just want a 9mm that's even easier to carry concealed.
My brother has a PT111-G2 that I shoot occasionally. It's a nice gun, but I want a single stack nine ... never had one.

I'd rather not jump into .380 just yet. Pants pocket carry is nice, unless you're sitting. And the ammo costs more.
To each his own.

Duh... forgot about the SCCY. :D

I started with a Bodyguard... moved to a Shield... then to a XD9 (and 45) Mod 2sc. I still carry the Bodyguard as a BUG.

With the world as it is today... I like having the extra rounds of a double stack... but as you said... to each his own.

Hope you find something that you're happy with. :)
