CZ 75B Compact (Stainless Steel) Handgun- Short Review


CZ 75B Compact in stainless steel is a very good handgun. It is a small sized pistol with performance characteristics of full framed handguns. The pistol is sheer beauty and a treat to shoot.

So began the search for a tab that had to meet these conditions. Begorra, the net was surfed to its entirety, friends were consulted, re-consulted and called at odd timings, forums combed and after much tweeting and Facebooking, a dear friend told me to go for the Kindle Fire (Basic version).
