From 1911 to Glock to...CZ

Picked up a new pistol today and immediately took it to the range.

I'm a fan. Give it a few months of shooting and it just might replace my G19 as a EDC gun.

Maybe.

I don't think I could ever transition to a thumb safety.

Yep. Would go through a lot of ammo developing muscle memory.

It helps that I started on 1911s and even while I e been using glocks for carry/competition I shoot other guns. The "safety off flick" positioning of my thumb happens even with the glocks so I'm not too concerned.

I have several CZ's, nice choice. Mine are a bit larger and heaver then I prefer for EDC.. but to each his own.
The first I acquired was while I was a young Soldier in Germany and imported to the US by me.
CZ75 9010 (Pre B) Combat Competition special Customized by Frankonia in Germany.
Then there is my Pre B 75, Post B 75 and CZ-75 SP01,.. Did I mention I like the CZ 9mm platform ??? :biggrinjester:

Sorry, I meant I would go thru a lot of ammo. I Haven't shot extensively with a thumb safety in 30 years.

Very nice. If you are ever interested in adding to the pack without paying cz prices check out those Canik's. My father in law has 2 now and it is every bit the shooter his CZ is but for $250+ cheaper. They are great guns.

these are great looking guns, and really starting to carve a niche out for themselves in the competition arena, too!
FWIW, IIRC, AFAIK, FTMP, IANAL. YMMV.
