Sebastian seems to have ordered himself a nice looking CZ-82 (the 9×18) through his C&R license. He mentions that he could “get used to ordering carry pistols through the mail”. So could I, and that was actually part of my thought process when I got my C&R license. There are a lot of good, serviceable guns out there that are classified as C&R, which would more than do the job in a bad situation.
The ability to have guns delivered straight to my house without going through a store is pretty handy as well; I keep meaning to get around to starting my WWII service rifle collection.
