Darn thing sort of has the same feel to me of a SIG Mosquito.


Kicks a heck of a lot more, though! :bigrin:

I love my 82. I just need to buy more ammo to feed her! I gave serious consideration to shooting it when I qualified for my CCW, and brought it out to the range the day of my qualification as a backup incase my Sig failed, it didn't, but the CZ was there just in case.

I kinda wish I had a second 82.

Nice shooting gandog56. Do you reload also?

I hate to say this Gatsby but I just picked up my 3rd one. I really bought it for my daughter but I haven't given it to her yet. This one came with a real nice holster that may never get used the way it should be.

this is the first one i think of when i consider one for my daughter or my wife , or my daughter in law for that matter - thinking of getting her one for three gun ,

gatsby , ammo is the issue here as well , i always look and i always buy when i find it for a reasonable price - last two boxes i found were $25 each [turned those down]

i only have about two and a half boxes right now so im questioning that move , and watching for more , wish it could be converted readily to something easy to find ....like 9mm luger ;)

Well, I managed to recover 70 out of the 100 cases I fired at the range. Just got done reloading them up. Trying a load of 7.0 grains of AA#7 and a 95 grain bullet, since that is was the powder I had on hand.

I starting reloading these also but I've been using titegroup. I think I'm going to change over to 231 as it works good in the 9x19.
All I could find at the time were Lee dies. I've been using Berry's plated bullets.

Asquare, you can cut down 9mm Luger to use in the 9 mak. I read about this in one of the reloading forums and thought I kept a link but right now I can't find it. I do remember them saying it was as easy as cutting the case to length.

I bought 100 Starline cases figuring they would last me awhile. I shot 2 clips and found about half of them afterwords. Now I try to get to the end of the line so the cases hit the wall, easier to find that way.

Me too, just because I also shoot 10mm and 357 SIG, but all the lanes were full. Which I don't understand, as it was 2 PM Friday. Don't any of those people work? :lol

Decided I had to have more rounds and decided to convert some 9mm Luger brass to 9X18. Was pretty easy to do, just ran them through the sizer, Used my Lee cutter and lock stud with a (9X18 case length gauge to trim off the 1mm of brass needed for correct length, and ran it through the sizer once more. Reloaded them, then took a black Sharpie and colored all the brass heads black so I would not mix up the empties with my normal 9mm Luger brass. Made 130 of these. (Extra thirty because I could only find seventy of the first one hundred empties I shot of real 9X18 brass.
