Classic 12, do you get "slide bite" from the Walther? I had one years ago. It was quite accurate, but the slide scraped two grooves in my hand when recoiling. I decided to get rid of it and sold...

Pro - more durable than bluing.

Con - shows every little spec of dirt, so takes longer to clean.

The SAR Hawks are good CZ clones. However, there is much less aftermarket support for these than for Glocks or S&W.

How about one of the 16" barrel lever guns in 44 mag? Longer sight radius, easier to handle recoil. 44 magnum out of a 16" barrel hits a lot harder than either 10mm or 44 magnum in a pistol.
