The C82 got around
 
I was surprised to find out the CZ82, my favorite C&R pistol, was used by North Korea, Israel and Viet Nam. It's always a wonder how firearms get around. Remember the Colt SAA's in .38 Special that served British pilots in WWII?

Great guns. Still trying to find one private sale/FTF in NH.

there's 9mm's that are smaller and lighter. Why hit half as hard, when 9mm is marginal as to power, especially from a 3" barrel?

Closer to a 4 inch barrel, and there's a WIDE range of 9x18 loadings available. Some are hotter than others(and NOT safe for all guns). But,in general; they're accurate, reliable; and bit sufficiently hard to change someone's plans.

what's the appeal? $100 cheaper? I've several times seen 380's to the chest have no effect at all on a coon or chuck, for several or many seconds, to include jhp's. So I think your "faith" in 9x18 being "enough", is misplaces. If it was enough, a .22lr would have been enough, too. That guy was just easy to stop, that's all. i don't trust full bore plus p jhp's if they are 125 gr or higher, from 4". cause they dont expand reliably in critters.

A well made gun,MUCH stronger than a blowback ought to be( but just like my Makarovs and P64 benefit from Wolff Gunsprings sets) that's VERY accurate, reasonable to carry and FUN to shoot. Basically, a " Cadillac of the Combloc blowback guns".

Louisville slugger has been used by many noted people. Babe Ruth, scarface al, etc. Does birds and crook have a lot of them to sell, or what?

The CZ82's are sooo much more accurate than the "pocket" .380
's I have shot. No comparison.
