I ordered the two heavier-strength recoil springs and the 3-spring hammer kit. That should let me tailor the gun's response to a handload and adjust the trigger pull to suit my stiff old fingers!

Big Chief, that range off post with all that brass on the ground sounds like opportunity knocking at your door. Take a rake and sufficient 5 gallon buckets out there to collect the brass. When you get home, separate the brass first by aluminum, steel, and brass. The aluminum and steel cases are recyclable, especially the aluminum. Now to the brass cases.
Magnifying glass on stand, a good light, and some small quart containers. Separate the brass by chambering, and check each one to make sure it isn't Berdan primed; toss those. The magnifying glass on the stand helps with this a lot. Toss the squished cases in a container for recycling. For the chamberings you use, separate by manufacturer. It's a little bit of work, but will result in lots of new once fired reloadable cases.

Chief, I like to go with the heaviest recoil spring that allows the action to cycle reliably with whatever load I end up using. You're on the mark about a too-light recoil spring; it allows the slide to batter the frame, particularly on a straight blowback system like the P-64 or CZ-82 has. The 3-spring set for the hammer works the same way- - - -use the lightest spring that allows for reliable primer ignition to minimize the trigger pull. Handloads with good small pistol primers will allow a lighter hammer strike than some of the milsurp rounds with hard primers. I'd suggest geting both increased-weight recoil springs and the 3-spring set for the hammer. That's what I did. More info once they arrive and I tinker a little!
