I’ve always wanted a UZI pistol and that pro pistol will do.I’m very happy IWI is opening operations in America targeted for the civilian.That TAVOR SAR is so cool in its configurations shown here.Awesome I hope I can buy the UZI Pro Pistol without problems even if i do live in California.If It only holds ten round mags in California thats okay as long as they are detachable.The UZI Pro Pistol is a great piece of history.
