A gun I always wanted to buy but was hard to find was the CZ-75, but a few days ago while at my gun shop the owner said just got in a CZ-75 BD police model in 9mm this morning, you interested? Hell yeah, lets see this bad boy!! Well today I picked it up, gave it a cleaning to get the heavy oil out of the working parts then cleaned the barrel and applied a light coat of Slip 2000 to all areas. Tomorrow I'll be at the range finding out if its as accurate as everyone says they are. No it wont be my carry gun, I have a Bersa BP9cc that takes care of that in spades!! This will be my range & night stand gun, being all steel its too big & heavy to C.C., but it should be a great gun to shoot. The weight and design of the gun should make the recoil very manageable, I will try to get a decent report on my fist impressions with the CZ-75 BD tomorrow.

I'm pretty sure the CZ75 BD is next on my list--looking forward to your first impressions!
How about a little fire, Scarecrow?
I can tell you make sure you bring plenty of ammo. Your going to freak out with the accuracy. I bet you put the first round in the bullseye. Everyone I let shoot mine does than just turns around an looks at me with a smile.
Congrats on the new gun. I tried to decide between a full size 75BD or a PCR the last time I bought a gun, decided to go for the PCR to carry instead of the full size range toy. The PCR is fun to shoot at the range too. I would still like to pick up a 75BD eventually though.
You won't be disappointed. The CZ is a substantial piece, designed as a service weapon, and it's built to last. Good HD piece if you elect not to carry it .

Okay!! Here's a quick pic., I think this is a gun I could pass down to my son and he could do the same for his son. It's built like a tank!
Congrats! It will surely bring you joy at the range .
For everyone simply oozing to see pics of the CZ 75 BD ... click.
Nice choice, BTW. If DA/SA + decockers are your thing, it's hard not to like the BD series. Great guns.
Good luck with your BD
I have the 75BD also,its my go to 9MM and a tackdriver..You will love shooting yours,say hello to a gun that not only is
as accurate as they come but it still left you with money in the bank for a steak dinner LOL
Congrats on the new gun. I think you'll love the CZ. Everyone I know who tries them does.
Just curious. What's the difference between the 75BD Police and the standard 75BD?

Dat-GUMMIT! There was a time when most CZ 75 variants were a well-kept SECRET. Only the most serious of handgunners (including no less that the revered Jeff Cooper) knew, owned and LIKED 'em. Now, every time you yahoos go out & get a nice one (like this BD) the cat gets... further out of the bag. Very, VERY NICE handgun!
