    got offered a CZ 75 40cal.??

    I have also been offered a CZ has about 1000 rounds threw it. Comes with 3 mags and a holster , it's a perfect for IPSC or TPC. for $600
    What should I do?
    Do you think maybe I should offer $500 or less?
    He did let me try it and it felt good. Unfortunately being a beginner I do not know... I know maybe I am asking to much?
    I did go on this site to learn and understand the goods and the bad's.
    Asking for help.

    Well!
    How good a shape is it in? 1000 rounds, I'm guessing newer, and black?

    You've got a .22 pistol on the way, and you've been offered a good deal on a HiPoint .40 pistol and a good price on a .40 CZ pistol w/extras (1000 round is nicely broken in, IMO)...personally I'd be deciding if .40 was the calibre I wanted to play with and if I had the cash.
    If yes, buy both.

    Both good deals, you won't lose money. Whoever is selling them has priced them fairly, mags for the CZ are...errr it's been a while, $30? Holster, sight unseen, I'm guessing Kydex, 'nother $30? So the pistol with two mags is $540 (WARNING this math is Gunmath, it's like Shoemath for women....) fair price for a used CZ75.

    Now finances come into play?
    If money is an issue...I couldn't tell you. Really, if money's a "can't make the rent" issue, buy neither. Those deals will come along again...they'll just take awhile...but $600 for one quality pistol or $750 for two pistols in the same calibre...I like mac and cheese, how 'bout you?

    I've never shot a HiPoint, I really like my CZ85. CZ makes a good pistol...I'm not sure that there are any problems with the 75?

    IMO, YMMV, etc. not a .40 fan, we just use them at the range in Canada, after all. 9mm is cheaper (2/3 price, ish?), .45 is easier to see holes.

    Can you get a chance to shoot them both?

    In my opinion I'd pass on the Hi Point and get the CZ. Use the money you saved to get the Kadet adapter for the 75.
    Don't blame me, I didn't vote for 'em.

    Skip the hi point, that's a good price for the cz with the Accesories. You won't lose money and 1000 rounds is F'all

    I never liked CZ pistols, but thats a reasonable price...

    Again, the CZ is probably a better purchase than the hi point.
