Down Range: October 2013
In the August 2013 issue, Ray Ordorica compared two full-size 9mm pistols, a surplus CZ 75 (about $350) and a new Tokarev M70A, made in Serbia by Zastava (about $330). The CZ, designed in 1975 and with more than a million having been built, is one of very few DA/SA pistols that can be carried cocked and locked. The CZ is big and stout enough that even the hottest 9mm ammo with the heaviest bullets would hardly kick enough to disturb the composure of the weakest-handed shooter.

The Supreme Court will not examine Maryland’s handgun permit law, leaving to stand an appeals court ruling that the state’s restrictive rules for concealed-carry permits do not unconstitutionally infringe upon gun-owners’ rights.
