In looking at the new CZ-USA annual type magazine with the 45 page Buyer's Guide.
A bold new direction for CZ catalogs this year.

Other companies such as Glock and Mossberg have offered such Annuals for a few years, with S&W jumping aboard the concept for 2009, too.

With the recent price hike at CZUB and CZ-USA.

The POLYMER framed guns seem to be quite cheaper than the steel or alloy framed

Being sent several boxes of the newest development at Hornady: The FTX flex tip technology
round in 9mm Luger caliber.

Reportedly- giving expansion Every Time through clothing and barriers.
The FTX looks interesting for my defensive needs.

Usually, I try to get good pics of myself or others shooting, and of muzzle
flash, ect. My camera batteries were near dead, and I could only get a few
pics. Hopefully, I'll be able to do some further testing with FTX when the
weather gets warmer.

My GOAL: Function/ accuracy testing for use in my CZ and other 9mm pistols.

8 rounds of FTX. All rounds targets chewed out center of bullseye, save for two
low rounds, due to the target being low on the hanger. I was able to correct

New Ammo from Hornady : FTX Critical Defense

and no be too hot for the Chunk Monkey's small/light slide.

Myself and others have had slide velocity issues when using +P or +P+
rounds, and the FTX will be put to the test soon.

As a big fan/user of the mighty 10mm round, incuding the superb Hornady XTP
bullet. I'm looking forward to seeing Hornady (a leader in ammo technology) offer
the FTX in this wonderful caliber.

Likewise, I hear that people are very happy to be carrying this in their

I should be getting my Ruger LCP so…
