Blasphemy....I know.....CZ Love

I don’t own a CZ....but everytime I fondle one, shoot one....it’s a fantastic experience.

Thinking I may sell everything and just go all in on CZ 🙂

I think they make a good gun, and I've been tempted many times over the years. While they do feel great in the hand, the trigger reach and the thumb safety reach are both outside of my comfort zone (regarding the CZ75B model).

I've got a PCR and a CZ 82 in 9x18. Love them both.

I've owned a P07 for awhile and I've had a few clones pass through my hands (Caniks and Tangfolio) and I can see why they are so copied due to their robust and relatively simple (not Glock simple mind you) design. Ergonomically my three favorite species are 220 series Sigs, 3 Digit Smiths, and CZs as all three varieties fit my rather large hands very well and point very naturally.

The P07 has stayed because it is a robust and reliable design, and one of these days I'll add a P01 as well.

If I've ever had any complaints it is that a stock CZ trigger doesn't compare to a Sig 226 very favorably but then again I purchased my MK25 for almost 900 bills and the CZ cost me 468 after taxes...so it's not a fair comparison. A better comparison would be a Shadow which is in a class of its own as far as DA/SA production guns are concerned.

Nothing blasphemous at all. CZ makes excellent pistols. Their single action models are exceptionally fine firearms. I dare say, even their plastic excels. After all of these years of being thoroughly disappointed by polymer of all types, a CZ P-09 finally won me over. That's the only plastic I've ever cared to own. No need to sell everything else, though. Variety is the spice of our hobby, after all. Just mix a few CZs in among the rest. You won't be disappointed.

I just picked my PCR up a few days ago. They're not easy pistols to find. I had to go to just about every gun shop in the metro-Detroit area to find one. Not even Cabelas had one.
I've never cared very much for polymers. I read somewhere that it costs Glock, like $83 to produce a 17. I've just never felt like I'm getting my money's worth.
I like metal guns, with hammers.

Nothing wrong with you...CZ’s are outstanding pistols. I’ve owned a PO1 for years and neglected it over HK’s and Sigs. When I finally started shooting it more it has replaced those makes and become my EDC.

I wanted the same model in SA and they’re not as common, so I found a CZ Shadow Line Custom for a game gun. Super pistol.

My only complaint with CZ is that they don’t offer a smaller frame .45...

Don’t fight it, just go with it.

CZs come into their own when dynamic shooting. Their ergonomics, to include grip, extremely low bore axis, and slide inside the frame, make for excellent repeatable shooters period. I can get higher with my grip on a CZ than any other pistol without interfering with controls.

I have four. CZ SP-01 Tactical, CZ Shadow Orange, P-01, and Rami. The Tactical is my duty weapon for the Sheriff's Office.

I've got a fully Cajunized SP-01 and am waiting (and waiting and waiting...) on a Target Sport Orange.

Awesome guns.

I've never understood the fascination with CZs. I myself stopped at around 16, so they hold no interest for me.

(There would be more in this pic, but my kids ran off with a few of them)

I don’t know how, but a EAA Tanfolio Witness Match Elite SA only snuck into my safe while my back was turned and made itself at home among all 1911s.
Now I will have to mount a video camera to keep an eye on my safe to make sure that a stray CZ 75 Compact doesn’t wander in there......

I handled one of those for the first time this weekend. They are big honkers.

Like the low bore axis and rails inside the slide?
Try the gun they stole those features from. The Sig P210.

Want 1911 controls to boot? Look at the new P210A Target.

Nice holster. Now let's see the gun.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

If you're not on there already, get on the list a Grabagun. I saw the notice that they were in a few weeks back, the problem is you'd better be prepared to act the minute the email comes in. These things don't last long - as in mere hours.

I would, but only paying dealer cost makes it worth the wait......

I was in the market for a Beretta 92 a year ago and stumbled across a CZ75 SP-01 Suppressor Ready Tactical in Urban Gray. I'm so happy that I did...Awesome weapon...A little trigger and spring work and it's now one of my favorite pistols to shoot...This will not be my last CZ...

Blasphemy....I know

Why would liking a CZ be blasphemy?

That's crazy talk!
