CZ TSO Orange discussion

So after an agonizingly long wait, my TS Orange is on its way to me. My intention is to use it primarily in 3-gun competition and maybe a little steel shooting and occasional Limited minor competition. I already ordered a Ghost Thunder Holster, Belt and mag pouches (Black with Orange pouches) and a couple extra mags.

I know there's a few of you guys running the TSO orange. What games are you playing if any and what holster etc are you using?

I have a guy here in Ohio that prototyped with me a holster than allows a full sprint with a CZ CM and a sub 1.0 draw, he can make another one for you if I bring him my gun and you don't use the gaspedal. If you do it will take longer since he will have to mold out a different setup entirely, I have two for my CZs with one offering higher retention and the other being a true "break forward" just like a race master

Used for 3-gun and USPSA plus being "that guy" at local events

I've been using the Ghost with excellent results. I don't use the thumb rest either, tough.

Appreciate the offer Striker, but I already ordered the Ghost. If it is not to my liking I will let you know. It sounds interesting though. Have a picture of it?

Why are you guys not using the thumb rest? is it not that great? doesn't fit you? holster interference? Does it work with the Ghost holster Jim? Just curious what you guys found when trying it.

What bullets are you guys finding for best accuracy. I currently run RMR 124's at about 1100fps as my competition load in my APEX bbl M&P. They are very accurate. Hoping more so with the TSO.

I've found I'm faster without it for some reason, likely to to grip pressure/consistency being better for recovery without it. I use any and all bullets and don't really see too much difference since everything basically one holes when unsupported

For me, it's like this: The purpose of the thumb rest is to help keep the muzzle down and the gun on target during recoil. The thing is, with every 9mm round that I've used, there's hardly any recoil as it is. This pistol is heavy, in all the right ways, and the grip is dang near perfect, so recoil is minimized to the point where the thumb rest becomes almost a vestigial appendage. I understand the purpose and the appeal for some, but on this pistol, it's darn near unnecessary - unless, of course, you're using some absurd version of an extreme 9mm load.

Also, it limits holster selection as well. With the appendage, you're pretty much relegated to 'open' style holsters - which I don't particularly like (I know, I know.... I'm not 'tacti-trendy'). It won't work with the Ghost that I'm aware of, certainly not with the version I have. Not sure if they've made some new-fangled version where it might work, but regardless, I'm happy without it - turns it into a more streamlined pistol.

Thumb rests just create a weird edge that distracts me.

I don't undercut my trigger guards to get a higher grip, I do it for a smooth comfortable grip that doesn't distract me.

I have a CZ Tac Sport with a thumb rest. But it is too far forward for me. I have 2 complete uppers, a 9mm and a 40 cal. I've been shooting USPSA Limited with the 40 and am debating just removing the thumb rest or looking for one that fits me better. Even with 40 major pf with the weight of the gun recoil isn't much. I'm used to shooting single stack major so it's not like I'm moving up from 9mm minor.

Our range just reopened so I'll have to get out and experiment.

Good to hear. I like a pistol with some weight to it. My fastest, most accurate pistol ever was my SIG X5 L1. It wasn't reliable though, and didn't have as high a magazine capacity. Im hoping this CZ will be everything I miss about the SIG and then some.

According to Ghost's website the current Thunder holster accommodates the thumb rest. I assume they made a change.

Having used many SIGs imported and otherwise including two X6 opens the CZ is performance wise totally superior. I still love the SIGs and the craftsmanship is outstanding but the clock doesn't lie
