    I won 2 rifles in the last year and used up all my luck. Same as u I sold them both as I all ready have 3 deer rifles. I bought the 455 american and had it ordered from my LGS took 2 weeks. Recently got the third barrel direct from CZ website. 660$ and I've got all three rimfires. The downside to this gun is the glass is gonna cost you. In order to make use of the accuracy and range of the two bigger calibers you need more than the 3-9 burris I put on mine to try. Minimum glass I can find or recommended on rim fire site is another 200. The 17 is a rangy round and hard to really shoot at a 100 with nine power. I know it will shoot sub MOA. The other purchase I had to make was a torque wrench for 50$ to change the barrels. It is a fun gun! Could maybe be a little bigger gun.

    Glock 43 or mp shield depending on what one feels better in your hands the shield can be had pretty cheap if the $75 rebate is still on.

    Ruger or cz for the 22

Unfortunately, the few stores that handle the CZ models don't have any in stock and can't tell me when they will. I can order one on line that would come to the store and I could look at it and deny it where they would rebate my credit card. That seems like a painful journey. There was a new and used 77/22 there, but the price tag is enormous! I'd like to pet the CZ American and the Trainer. Might also like to look at the higher end model I forgot the name of that has I think a 28 inch barrel. Thoughts?
    PM me I believe I can assist you.

    CZ for the win. Wife and I both have 452's. Might check with Whittakers in Kentucky, they get some runs of 452 Americans in periodically even though they're supposedly discontinued. Most people like the 455 but then the ones that own both say they prefer the 452.

    Sounds fun either way Just shopping for new toys. Can't help with those. I have a Springfield XDM 9 which holds 19 rounds and love it. Only rugers I have ever owned are 10-22's.

The 9mm ammo is cheaper than the .32 of the Glock 42. I've looked a bit at the Ruger LC9, but already use a Glock at work. As for the .22 bolt, I've been looking at the Ruger American Rifle but one gun shop recommended either a Marlin or Mossberg as an option. Anyone have experience with any of these. I'm more at home with smooth bores!
    See if you can rent a few and try before you buy. Everyone is different. what feels good to me may not to you.

    Lots of good choices for Everyday carry gun. Springfield XDS, M&P Shield, Walther PPS, Ruger LC9 etc.. That said, if your used to Glock's and like the way they handle then stick with a Glock.
