Default Any thoughts on CZ?

I've been looking at getting a new pistol and was curious about the CZ line. I have a couple of Glocks, a couple of M&P's, an XD and an XDm. I like the looks of the pistol but was wondering the pro's and cons. I don't know much about them. If anyone has some info or suggestions about this line of pistols, I would greatly appreciate the input.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Try one. I did and loved it. I got the SP01 all steel.

Thoughts? Yeah...they're great. Not good, but great.

I'm speaking of the steel-framed model 75 types. The polymers may be nice too, but I don't really have any expereince with them. I would take a CZ 75b over any polymer any time, except for concealed carry (they're quite heavy).

You won't be disappointed if you add one to your collection. It may even change the way you feel about all that plastic. Perfect range and home defense pistol. Every CZ (rimfire and centerfire rifles, shotgun, various pistols) I've handled is an extremely high quality weapon at a fair price.

I've recently picked up a cz75 compact in 9mm...great gun. Nice solid feel to it, all metal construction so it has some weight to it but feels well balanced. Some plastic parts like the grips I'm planning on changing out but a great value at $500 in my opinion.

Several folks here have full size 75s and they seem to like 'em.

The only CZ I have is CZ-USA.
A C-BOB in 10mm. I would never trade/sell/give it away.

I have a CZ75B and CZ83 and really enjoy shooting them. They're solid and well constructed. I would change the material of the grips but not the shape. I think they're a great value and will add more CZs soon.

Try one and see if you like it. Bet you will. Beware cZs are addictive.

Tried some CZs and loved them. Didn't get it only because of the DA first pull for my wife (for me it was a non-issue).

If I had some extra scratch, I'd buy a CZ-75BD or some variant. (I like hammered guns to have decockers.)
