Cjecking The Best Nines may be useful.
Try Gunbroker.com, that should giveyou a starting point. There is a CZ forum that might be more help. If you are on limited funds there are CZ clones, Tanfoglio is one and a good pistol that can be purchased used at a good price. Spad
If you are patient a good value on anything comes around. Just be ready to react when it comes, if you miss one or two others will come.
I own a 3rd gen g19, sig 229, and a cz75d compact and love them all. The g19 is extremely accurate SAO of course but I am not fond of no safety for carry (I know, I know, finger off the trigger). I have had the 229 only a few months and it is smooth and flawless. The da/sa is very smooth and the da acts as my safety in that it requires a little more effort during a stressful situation. The cz is what I carry at this time. It has the da/sa features like the sig and I shoot consistent and my best with it. The weight has a little to do with my carrying choice. The CZ weighs 26oz, the sig weighs 34oz.
I don't think any of us can decide on your gun but just give our opinions and there's mine. I believe they are all good choices and I think you did a great job with your research.
Brickman, I have to go along with you on that. The CZ-PO1 weighs in at 27.4 oz and my Sig 225/P6 weighs in at 26.1, both empty. It is a personal thing, but the lighter pistols appeal to me for carry. I can shove my Sig225 in my pocket, same with the CZ, size matters too. My FNP9 is a good shooter and light but just a little bigger for pocket carry. One other thing is night sights, Tritium Dot night sights are really good. I think a CZ PO-12 or used Sig225/P6 is the way to go. If it feels good in your hand the first time you pick it up. Also try cocking the hammer while gripping the pistol. Take a look at the FNP9, a fine pistol.Bye the way the above mentionedwhen you decock them have a heavier first round trigger pull in D/A than transit to S/A. Hope this gets you in the drivers seat.

Go with a Glock-19, carry it loaded and ready (an unloaded CARRY gun is just a heavy accessory ) and get a good holster for it. For IWB galco royal guard and OWB Blackhawk level 2. .
G19 for sure. Easy to find magazines, you can also use G17 magazine, and the 33 rounders as well. You could pick up a used for $400 if you look around NWFA. I have owned a G19, G17, and G26. Best all around is definitely the G19.
