    They're still not more than a Glock Bud... Academy Sports sells the CZ75B in .40 S&W cheaper than the Glock 19 by about $30 if I remember correctly.

    I actually don't think I'd want this platform in .40 S&W though, kinda like how if I had a Glock I'd want one in its original caliber too.

    CZ's and their clones

    I have a CZ-40P and a Witness Tactical II (a CZ clone), both in 40 S&W. I think they are both great guns and easily worth much more than they cost new... $290 (believe it or not) for the CZ and $425 for the Witness. I have a laser/light combo on the 40P and it's my bedroom gun. A few weeks ago I ordered a .357 SIG barrel for the 40P from Bar-Sto. When it gets here, all I'll need to do is swap barrels and I'll have two guns instead of one. The only change I made to the TAC II was a nice pair of wood grips, though the hard rubber factory grips aren't bad. If you think 9mm is a bit light, try a 40.

    I actually don't mind having guns in 9x19 again. Since I've inherited my father's pistol I am permanently vested in the caliber now.

    The CZ75 is one of the all-time-great 9mm's. The CZ is reliable, accurate and extremely ergonomic. It fits my hand WAY better than my carry guns (Glocks) - and I agree with Euclidean - it has *something* about it that draws one to it. My Glocks don't elicit that type of response.....

    But my BHP, 1911 and CZ do.

    I carry my Glocks because they are reliable, accurate, ergonomic, light wieght and pretty much "environment" proof - they flat won't rust/corrode.

    But when my hand wants to hold a fine firearm - Glocks aren't on the list. The BHP, 1911 and CZ are.

    cheers

    Haha - let the purists unite!!

    That said - I do feel well at ease holding the 226ST But the BHP does ask for a fondle at times as does a 1911!

    The CZ 75 in 9mm has been #1 on my list several times yet I just can't seem to make myself buy one. Whenever I handle one in a shop something jut doesn't seem quite right to me in the way it fits my hand. However, I handled a compactfor the first time recently and loved it; so, maybe a compact model will come home with me at some point.

    Cz P01

    Hi Chris,

    If you are considering a CZ, please let me recommend the P01. My son got me into CZ's with his 75. His only complaint with his is that for carry, it's a bit long. He outshot me so badly, I bought the P01 to reclaim my pride (he still outshoots me). Although most children with slingshots group tighter than I do, the CZs all let me do my best.
    Recently, my gunsmith came into the range to try out a 1911 he was working on. I offeref my P01, as he had never fired one before. At 10 yards, he emptied 10 rounds into a 1 inch circle. We were both impressed, him with the pistol and me with his shooting.
    I like the rail for home defense and the size, if I decide to carry it. If the rail doesn't appeal, the PCR is basically the same pitol, sans rail.
    Just something to consider.

    Be Well,

    Scarface

    Hey Buck

    Well - the main CZ's are as yet not on my radar tho - I do hear plenty of good things. My 226 has a rail so I am set up there, should I ever use it.

    The PO1 I know so little about but in fact I may just dig deeper on the CZ range in general - time I knew a bit more about them, whether I get one or not.

    I am pretty much ''up to number'' with what I have and have backed off from buying but hey - with a weak will like mine - who knows what may happen

    Happy Xmas Buck, to you and all yours.

    Which gun? Actually, they are Novak style sights that came with the guns. I have Novaks on a 1911 and you can't tell them apart. I've never had to make an adjustment to either gun's sights. The first two shots I fired from either gun hit the crosshairs on the target at ten yards and the first five left one big hole. It might have been luck, but I think the sights were set "dead on" at the factory, at least for me.
