    Picked up my new CZ-75 SP-01

    10 rounds from 10 yards

    2013-11-21 17.06.40.jpg

    Yep.. I LIKE IT! Incredibly easy to shoot, great ergos, accurate, reliable (from the 500 rounds we put through it). A damn fine pistol. My only complaint with the pistol is that I think the single action reset is a bit longer then it should be. Yes, I am still on the super short single action reset kick. I know this isn't the technical definition of SA but in my opinion a SA trigger should be BOTH light AND short. The CZ trigger is by no means bad and I think the reset is better then the Sig 226 that I owned but still not as good as my S&W 3913. How Smith managed to come up with such an amazing trigger in a gun that is like 25 years old amazes me. It also pains me to say because I REALLY don't like S&W. Anyway, I've gotten off topic...

    The only other thing that I am iffy on with the gun (and this really has nothing to do with the gun) is the safety vs decocker models. I bought the model that comes with the safety. The gun has to to be manually decocked. That doesn't bother me. The thing that may bother me (I haven't decided yet) is that it has a safety (duh, right...). I've always moaned and complained about defensive pistols with safeties. Even though I understand that a safety makes sense on this gun I am still afraid that I will loose cred because I am kinda back tracking on what I said previously. On the flip side I do like the idea of being able to carry the gun hammer down/double action first shot OR carry it cocked and locked. I don't really see myself carrying the gun cocked and locked (or carrying it all) but it's nice to have options.

    Anyway, I am EXTREMELY happy with the gun. I felt a little let down by the sig 226 but feel I more than got my moneys worth with the CZ75. 585.00 out the door w/ night sights.

    CZ's are pretty bulletproof, I give it two weeks before you Rollo it.

    I think I am starting to loose my mojo. In the past 6 months I have bought 4 guns and haven't broken a single one. If this keeps up my legend is going to start to fade :(

    I honestly think the CZ should be fine, it is one of the best military sidearms ever made. I have been looking hard at the CZ line lately, just trying to decide which one to get.

    Never shot one, but I'd say they would be sweet.

    If you decide to go with a Rami, get the de-cocker. The thumb safety on them is much smaller than on the 75B; too small in my opinion.

    Congratulation on the new CZ. You won't be disappointed.

    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    Very sweet indeed. My alloy Rami and PCR D are the two best all 'round pistols I've had in the past 4 1/2 yrs and that number is at 26-28. (Yep, 28, but the wife doesn't have a clue!) I'm a little more accurate with the PCR D, but NOTHING feels as groovy in the hand as the Rami. The only guns that I've had that came close to my CZ's were the XDm Compact 3.8's in 9 and 45.

    The legend will never die!

    Congrats on the excellent weapon. And don't worry about your previous statements on safeties:

    "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do... if you would be a man speak what you think today in words as hard as cannon balls, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict everything you said today."
    ...there is no arguing with such snivelling puppies, who allow superiors to kick them about deck at pleasure.

    Nice pick Rollo. I know how you feel about your 3913 as I have a 908 and it is hard to beat. CZ makes a great gun and it is good to have a variety. Enjoy.

    Gotta love a CZ. I own one - a 75D compact - but every other one I have held felt "just right."

    Your experience is as mine - after the first range trip, I was "Man, I really like this gun."

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Congrats on the new pistola...nice looking firearm, I'm sure it will treat you very well. I've heard only good things about CZ pistols.
