So CZs aren't made by Swiss watch makers, or out of gold (a lot of MIM actually). However they have the ability to make me look good 😁. That makes them golden to me.

I bought dad an SP-01 Tactical a few years ago and the one time I went to the range with him was an eye opener. While the stock trigger has a ton of creep to it (any reviewer who says factory CZ triggers are "crisp" is full of BS), concentrating on pulling through that creep just causes me to shoot better. It is a light creep that doesn't really hitch or stack. As long as you don't jerk or slap the trigger you can still shoot the pistol well.

I've since bought a TS2 for target shooting, and this latest acquisition - a P-01 - for carry. I actually got this last one for the wife, and she shoots it like a house on fire...but she decided yesterday that she prefers my Sig P239.

So it looks like I have a new carry pistol.

If you get a chance to try one, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We need eye candy. It’s ready a gun mag with no pics.

How about I show you my Dan Wesson Specialist first. Put a whopping 25 rounds through it a minute ago. This was my last string of six shots at 15 yards...three to the head and three to the body.

It was slow fire, so no BS about how I cranked off doubletaps because it probably took me 30 seconds to put this string out.

This is as good as im capable of

Send it Bro!! Single tap or double tap a dead perp is still a dead perp. Steel just saves on the body count and gas for the backhoe.

Nice pistola! Never had the opportunity to handle a CZ although some of the guys at the matches are using them now. Haven’t read anything negative about them either.

I did a little shooting today with my gen 1 Glock 17 using old “preban” mags. I believe the gun is a 1985 model.

I hated Glocks for years. Rented a G17 at a range once just so I could say I shot one. Ran the target back to the 25yd line limit and proceeded to put 14 of 15 rounds into a group the size of my hand.

Bought (really traded for) a G17 within the week. I'll never crap on their capabilities again.

I’ve own a bunch of Glocks over the years and am still not a “fan”, but like you, I do respect them for what their reliability and durability. About once a year, I pull a couple out to remind myself how much I like my 1911’s.

It helps when one has a bunch of nice 1911s.

The CZ triggers would probably get your nose in the air. I like them more than a gritty striker...but I'm not exaggerating when I say that there is 1/8" creep once the slack is pulled out. The hammer falls somewhere in there.

As long as you have a smooth pull, it isn't a detriment though.

I too hated Glocks for years. I’ve had G17/19 9mm’s and G22 .40 as service weapons. I have a G22 oh my own and carry it in the woods loaded with bear rounds. I currently carry a G19 as a service weapon at work.

Never been a fan of tupperware glocks. I do own a 43 that I won at a DU banquet. Took it to the range to do the obligatory 200 round break-in which it passed, but I had a blister on my finger from dragging on the trigger guard. What moron designer thought that guard was a great design? Safe queen as we speak.
I'll stick with the Kahr CW-40 for compact carry, and a Kimber Stainless Target II 1911 in .45 with a 10 round Wilson mag for full size, all of which have passed the 200 round reliability test that someone thought up as a standard.
Back when using that Kimber in USPSA pistol matches I went almost an entire season without cleaning it to check for reliability and personal curiosity. Got close to a 1000 rounds. It was dirty, ugly and nasty. Caught lots of hell from others showing up with a pistol that dirty, but it held up without any issues. Finally gave up and cleaned it which took "awhile".

I was carrying an M9 by the time I was 20, and over the remaining 19 years of my career I had deployed with one five times. Shooting a DA/SA, and being proficient enough to compete with one (low-level matches...I'm no Jerry Miculek), I've never really seen the need to get away from the function. Some people see that first round as a drawback...but thousands of repetitions later and I can assure someone that it isn't. It does take extra practice though, there's no arguing that.

However, working on the ranch and flat out abusing my sidearm has me carrying a cheap polymer framed pistol...which isn't really that cheap after I had to add sights and a trigger to get it to shoot acceptable for me. It's not the guns' fault, but rather a handicap of my own.

Nobody is Jerry Miculek. I've been on his squad during a High Plains Tactical Shotgun match at the OKC Gun club. To say he is one of a kind is putting it mildly. I knew I wasn't that good at it and he proved it. His wife and daughter are also top shooters in their own divisions.
