    New CZ P-01 Added As Carry Weapon

    It was after a lot of thought that I retired my trusty Beretta 92 FS as my main carry gun. Frankly, it was just too big for a big guy to pack around concealed. Mind, I am a very big fan of the Beretta design and have no intention of parting with it, but I wanted a bit more comfort and concealment than the 92 could provide.

    So I spent a couple of days looking at the crop of pistols that I thought would do the job. I wanted a 9mm pistol with as close to a
    4" barrel as I could get and a decent magazine capacity.

    The CZ P-01 was heads and shoulders above the other candidates. It is smaller than the Beretta, obviously, with a 3.9" barrel and 14 round mags. It is lighter and is a very comfortable pistol in the hand. It shoots well, although there is a bit of trigger creep that is supposed to smooth out after a couple of hundred rounds.

    I am looking forward to warmer weather; up here in Northern Michigan, we have no indoor ranges, and if I am outside, the cold gets these hands to shaking too much for safety's sake. I hope to report in more detail in late March or early April

    Very nice choice

    Of course we need pics

    My CZ in a CD Special made by HBE. It has been a great carry combo for me for a couple of years.

    Ahhhh, another wise person. Obi-wan.

    Have got a pair of P-01's, here, as well. Doubly good.

    A bit thick to carry IWB, but a dream OWB. Light, strong, good capacity, large controls that are easy to manipulate, highly accurate, extreme reliability. And it just keeps getting better, the more I shoot. IMO, it's very hard to not like the P-01.
