My newest purchase...a Stoeger Cougar ala Beretta Cougar made in Turkey that is one incredible buy. I wanted something in 9mm...a plinking gun that would digest ammo a bit more inexpensive than my .45 ACP or .357 mag...and walla, I found this gem:




I replaced the plastic grips with some inexpensive ($40) Hogue wood grips...they feel nice and improve the look...eh? Pistol comes with two 15 round mags (made in Italy).



Without a doubt, this was the easiest field strip I've ever experienced on the weapon. All metal weapon with the exception of the poly guide rod and magazine ejection button. I think I got a ferrari at the price of a chevy!



Not exactly small...not really large. Smaller than a 1911 though. Here is a size comparison to my three inch GP100.

I shall take it to the range on the next good weather day and post a detailed range report with photos. This might just turn into a carry weapon rather than a fun gun.

Very nice pistol dawgfvr and at a great price too! Not to detract from the Cougar but I have to say I really like the grips on your GP100. It's not every day you see one wearing a set of grips like those.

Great find. Now one obligatory range report,please. We just have to know.

Might be an idea to start an "Other Guns Porn" segment similar to the Taurus thread of that nature.
With nifty looking guns like that who needs the bear skin rug?

A little of the right lighting and we're off.

Love the Cougar, and that Ruger is wicked !! Nice basic customization, looks like you've got a couple of really nice carry guns.

Handsome pair, looking foward to your range report, i'll start keeping my eye open for a similar jewel, i currently own only 1 9mm, vintage S&W 39-2 which is cheap to feed.
