Hooray! It's a CZ! (...and a question!)
I have officially added--via a gun show deal!--a CZ P-06 to my carry rotation! :danceban: First, some gun porn starring what I think is a fantastic firearm:
I really enjoyed shooting this .40, possibly even more than my Glock 23 (jury's still out)! I've put something like 300 rounds through it so far with only 2 'failure to feed' when shooting bagged ammo I bought from the same gun show--last time I do that--where I bought this CZ. I have had no issues whatsoever with my new carry ammo (HST's) or Federal range ammo.
Possibly most important of all, I feel more accurate with this firearm than my Glock-- barely need to pull the trigger to fire in SA!
And this is also my first exposure to night sights (uh, no pun intended) and I'm kinda diggin' em:
Now, a quick question for those already in the CZ 'know':bowdown::
This firearm has a decocker lever, thus the three positions the hammer can be in are: DA/SA/half-cock action. In the pictures you can see DA then SA; half-cock action puts the hammer about 60-75% toward the DA position from full SA mode.
From a quick search on the forum, I found this written by Cloudpeak on another thread:
With this post (and practicing it unloaded), I'm fairly confident I can lower the hammer to full DA position without the round being fired. But I'd like to have the general CZ crowd help prevent me from wrecking my so-far-clean accidental discharge record. Also, I'm pretty sure I'd break a couple fingers in the process if that slide ran through them, and that'd be no fun at all. So can the hammer be manually lowered to the DA position from the SA position safely, or am I risking phalanges?
To clarify: On DA/SA CZ's, you can manually lower the hammer (on a live round. Practice doing this with an empty pistol and be safe) and then fire the pistol double action for the first shot. It's a long, heavy double action. The safety can't (and doesn't need to be) engaged when you do this. All following shots are single action. Or, you can carry with the hammer back and the safety engaged as you would a 1911.
Thanks for the help guys and gals :wave:
