Picked up my new CZ 75B Police model yesterday at LGS! What a nice fitting, beautiful 9mm handgun! Naturally, my dog and I buzzed immediately out to a public shooting area a few miles away and emptied a couple of mags of different ammo. I was using my rubber bouncing target so a better range report will hopefully follow. It cycled the Fiochi and cheap Russian ammo (Maxtech?) perfectly. It was quite cold and windy so I only fired a couple of magazines.

This pistol fits so naturally in your hand that I'm surprised I wasn't born with it! Looking forward to a little warmer weather and running a couple hundred rounds through it.

    Congrats on the score! I have been thoroughly impressed with CZ's 9mm offerings.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    What price range do the Police models run, approx?

    Beautiful. I consider the CZ-75 the best service pistol available, and the compact version you have an ideal for CCW.

    Nice, Congrats. I don't own a CZ but need to rectify that. brother has a CZ P-07 that is probably the slickest 9mm I have ever fired.

    Nice! I have the BD non-police because they don't let us have the police model here in Commiefornia.

    I have never even fired a CZ, not sure if I even have held one. You are making me want to check them out in detail. Congrats

    congrats on adding a CZ to your tool chest.

    If this is your first one, they have a tendency to multiply. So you are warned.

    theres not that much difference between the BD and BD Police.

    the Police has a Loaded Chamber Indicator.

    iirc, i understand the OEM must jump through some hoops to get them blessed. But other than the LCI, lanyard loop and some fluff, its a BD.

    This is true enough - but I'd have liked the LCI and the front strap checkering. Not that I'm losing sleep over it mind, but I'm annoyed that the Gestapo won't let me have one. With all that said, I sure do LOVE my CZ!! :love: I added a set of TruGlo TFX sights, a CGW 10x bushing, and a pair of G10 "Grenade pattern" grips to it. Its the one gun that goes with me to just about every single range outing, regardless of what else I'm going to shoot.

    You should. When I picked up my first one, THATS when I realized "this is how a handgun should fit the hand"

    Now I have something like 10 or 11 CZ firearms

    That's pretty much it. Even my wife who does NOT like semi-autos at all loved the feel of my CZ in her hand.

    I was looking at those grips ironically, and am thinking about some aftermarket sites.

    Nice 'bobbins' on your sewing machine. Is that a CZ as well?

    this is one of those things where you will realize, youve been living life just great not knowing something.

    And then bang. You pick one up and ask yourself, where have you been all my life.

    Naw, its an old Montgomery Ward badged machine built by the long defunct National Sewing Machine Company (NSMCo) sometime before 1954. I took the picture because the grips match the tolex covering on its base - just thought it looked cool.

    By the design figured that machine had to be around 1950.

    I like steel guns, have not found a deal on a 9mm CZ yet.

    My first CZ was/is identical to yours, and I still love it best of all my semi-autos except maybe my 1911. I added the Kadet .22 conversion, which made it my best and most accurate .22, and soon after bought a CZ RAMI, the subcompact model of the CZ-75B. I've introduced several total newbies to pistol shooting, and the Kadet is a great training and practice tool because of the easy transition to 9mm. The RAMI had some initial feeding/ejecting problems, but after a factory fluff and buff, is now reliable and still the most accurate double stack subcompact I've ever handled.

    They are awesome. I am hoping to pick one up at some point. I kick myself for selling a clone of the CZ-75, the Action Arms AT-84S. Fit like a glove, I just started believing you need a 4 in the caliber to be effective.
