CZ PO1

Alright i went pistol searching today! Originally i wanted to look at the walther pk380...I didn't find one but I did see other 380 model type pistols and was automatically disapointed with how small the pistols were and was turned off( yea thats right.. "turned off") about owning one. I DID infact find a pistol that I very much enjoyed the feel and weight of. It's the CZ PO1. It felt perfect in my hands and was very well balanced. The store didn't have a range for me to shoot the piece..bummer..I can't wait to put some rounds through it. I was told the pistol goes out the store brand new at $650. Whatcha guys/girls think?

CZ PO1

six fifty will get you a VERY nice handgun from MANY maufacturers.
If you are willing to spend that much on a "showroom piece", keep looking and reading and asking. $650 opens a lot of doors, don't spend it till you look at a few more.

I was at the gun

store today,saw the very same CZ your talking about,did not notice the price tag though,i am not a fan of the .380 caliber but the CZ line is looking good.I didn't walk out empty handed though,had to buy another magazine for my G26,a 12 rounder.

i tried being reasonable,i didn't like it, NRA LIFE MEMBER,USMC VETERAN

WHORUNIT??

I completely agree with Vaquero. If you're willing to spend that on a piece, Im sure you can probably find a better deal out there, and it be "what you want". BTW, (by the way) What are you wanting this for?? Home protection? Just a day out shooting? Id be able to help/answer you a little better, I think, if I knew.

cant go wrong with CZ

I have a CZ 75 and have looked at other models with interest.I have had alot of different 9mm pistols but the CZ always has been the best.it will digest any ammo thrown at it to include lead semi wadcutter handloads.you can shoot the shit out of it and be real lazy about cleaning it.I know a guy who bought the P01 after owning a CZ 75 since the late 70's.He says it is the same gun but is more modern.it dont care if it is dirty or what ammo is in it.do consider these factors when you buy.I would pay 650 for it if I had the cash and the gun was in front of me.just my 2 cents...

Hey Sam,

Reckon when Quinton or Marvin might grace us with a visit?
After last night and all the shoes laying around, it sure woulda been handy if Greasy had the "opportunity" to clean up some of that mess.

You can sit around here all day with an hour between posts, and then the shit hits the fan and you'd better be ready. But, I just have to say, the old lady is more fun than you farts.

thanks everyone

I guess I don't know the right pricing for a good pistol...im a noob..the price didn't really effect me when I saw it. I want a peice to better my shooting and for home protection..I am married with 2 daughters and a very busy work schedule so im not home sometimes like id like to be. I also live in an area with alot of homeless so risk of invasion scares me and the wife. Im sure u folks understand.- sieze the opportunity- thats what i would do. One more reason for it...MY RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS now say AYE SIR.----the factors about the cz po1 that i like are 1:the grip- the grip fit my hands right from the start. I didnt have to think about it it just felt right. 2: the overall balance of the pistol- it felt very very confortable, no barrell dip or anything that offset my handeling of the weapon. What type of better deal could i find and where should i start looking? once again thank u and i appreciate all the help.

Find a range where you can rent one. If it still feels right, go for it.
You might try a couple of others just for comparison.

I think it's genetic. Her sister and nieces laugh exactly the same way. When she laughs, you just have to smile. Oh, and a great attitude.

Hermione: HER-MY-O-KNEE, which means "earthy." She's the know-it-all in Harry Potter who eventually winds up marrying Ron, the red head who eats chocolate frogs. Just though you'd like to know.

It's unique. It's not little; it's not a guffaw. It's just so REAL that it's like a wave that takes you with it and you're laughing the whole time. It's musical. I guess "encompassing" is a way to describe it. When she laughs she gets this wide smile on her face and her eyes turn into the horizontal slits and all you can think of is, "God, I love her!" It's the most amazing thing in the world. Everyone she meets feels the same way. I just feel so damn lucky. She lights up every room she is in.

I have 4 photos of my wife with that smile/laugh on her face.
That's the most wonderful look I can imagine.

CZ quality is second to none. I've owned a CZ-75, and I'll second what Greasy says about them. I think they're great. It also was extremely comfortable in my hand, and easy to shoot, hence easy to hit with. Everything CZ makes is top quality.
