How have I overlooked the CZ?

I have a CZ Rami and carried it for about a year. Recently though my back has been hurting. Thought it might be the Rami. Carried it IWB 4 o'clock in an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck. So I switched back to an old standby. S&W M&P 340 in a Mika pocket holster. Back feels way better. only 5 shots, but 357 mag. Probably not going to be in a gun fight anyway and I do keep a Glock 19 in my truck as well.

I hit the mid century mark shortly and over the last few weeks, I notice a slight ache when sporting my 75.

AIWB, ankle, or pocket my Kimber .380 with 6+1 and two itty bitty 7 round mags in a pocket is way more comfortable though less prepared for a down and dirty gun fight.

My fondness for CZs is pretty limited to their hammer fired handguns

I think the Shadow 2 is too heavy.  It is over the 43 oz weight limit.  At least that's what the interwebz tells me.

Yes the Shadow 2 is too heavy for IDPA.  The limit is 43oz and the Shadow 2 weights 46.5oz.  To shoot in IDPA I would recommend the CZ Custom Shop CZ 75 SP01 Custom (SKU91030) which can be shot in Production and ESP Divisions.  You could also look at the CZ Custom Shop CZ 75 SP01 Accu Shadow (SKU91730) which can be used in ESP Division only.  Both guns can be used in USPSA Production.

Sorry for the multiple post. It didn't go through at first.

I have an SP-01. It's too heavy for carry and really too heavy (IMHO) for a bedside pistol, even though it has night sites. As a range warrior it is fantastic.

You could go with a Phantom that has a polymer frame if you wanted the same size but lighter.

Or you could go with the P-01 which is the compact version and aluminum frame.

I would be thrilled if I could actually find many CZ's in person. I've been trying to get my hands on a CZ P10c for months now. I don't understand why CZ hasn't bumped up production. The demand is there.

Right, I can find them online(and that's a good price!) but I want to physically hold one first. None of the local stores in Knoxville can seem to keep them in stock.

Come on over to the west side of the state, all of the LGS around here have them in stock, usually around $469

Try SIA off Middlebrook, they normally seem to have a pretty good selection.

If someone made me cull through the herd, the cz's would be the last semi autos to go.  I continue to increase my appreciation for hammer fired over striker in some situations. I have several including 75 stainless which I agree is mostly a range gun but sure as hell makes you look good at the range. I use p09 for a backup gun in a separate location of my house.  Lots of rounds at a backup location.  Probably the least ergonomic CZ, reminds me of an FN product.

Not withstanding the above, I like others would love to get a p10, that's on the list investigate...may replace my Walther PPQ if I can find the one I want. Again its about the unique feel of these handguns.

My favorite is this one with upgraded night sights.  I carry this especially on trips out of town. CZ ergonomics make me a better shooter.

I tried them a while back but I don't need an excuse to go there again. That place is great and the staff is friendly. I might run by there one day on my lunch break.

I had a opportunity to shoot one on my local range and was very surprised how great the gun felt in my had and nice the trigger felt.

Agreed on all counts.

      I'm starting a thread to chronicle my efforts to build a semi-custom M&P M2.0 Compact to rival the Glock 19 in my EDC suite.
      As Smith & Wesson are currently offering a $50 rebate on the M&P series of handguns, I purchased another 4-inch M2.0 Compact 9mm strictly for the purpose of sending its slide off to Primary Machine to be milled for a Trijicon RM07 red dot.  It should be delivered to them tomorrow (Friday, Aug 10) and will then be in their queue for the next 2-3 weeks.
      The configuration I have specified for it is as follows:
      Mill slide for RMR and for Glock rear sight dovetail behind the RMR. Install plain black suppressor-height sights.  Glock rear, M&P front.  Proper height for co-witness. Cerakote slide Graphite Black  
      This will be in addition to the other 4-inch M2.0 Compact 9mm that I have been carrying for several months now.  I'll leave it with iron-sights only.  This unit with the red dot sight will very likely become my new EDC.
      I will post updates here as I learn more about the ETA for its return to me.
       
      This photo is not mine but it is similar to what I have in the works.  Mine does not have the thumb safety and the front sight is different.
       

       
       
      Friday 10-AUG-2018
      The slide and RMR arrived safely at Primary Machine's location today and was signed for by their staff.  The 2-3 week [estimated] countdown begins!
       
       
      Friday 17-AUG-2018
      The slide was completed and shipped back out to me on Wednesday the 15th.  It is due to arrive today.  As soon as it does I will of course take photos and post them.  I should be able to get it to the range this weekend to dial it in and see how it runs.
