For someone with no ISPC or IDPA experience...

Is a CZ 97B a good choice for Limited-10 or would a basic single stack 1911 with 10 rd. mags be the way to go???

A basic 1911 (fixed sights, no mag well) is already in my inventory. I may be able to borrow a holster, 10 round mags, and mag pouches for the time being.

I guess I just need an excuse to buy a CZ 97B. The double column mags and a low starter price seems awfully attractive. :D

In L10 the 1911 is probably the most popular overall, about 10-1 above everything else at the matches around here.

I am sure a 97 would be capable but wonder about the availability of magwells, fiber optic sights, grips, things like that. The 1911 has anything and everything you could ever want available.

In IDPA the .45 caliber is a "Custom Defensive Pistol" with a maximum of eight rounds allowed in the magazine plus one in the barrel. You can use 10 round magazines but must load only 8+1 for the first mag and 8 thereafter.

singel stack is the way to go for L10

One disadvantage is that the mags may not be drop-free, which definitely put's a hitch in your reloads.

Put in a drop free mag break and go to town, the CZ 97 is the softest shooting .45 I have ever shot, follow up shots are quite easy. Some would say that the extra weight of the gun could also cause you to overswing targets. I had hogue wraparound grips on mine which are quite comfy but have gone back to the factory grips for no real reason. Customs rigs are available in kydex and leather. I have a Don Hume JIT slide for a Ruger that works well for $22.00. You don't really need a huge mag well either because it is a double stack mag and slides in easily.

Single stack is NOT the way to go for L10, if you're in it to win.

The most competetive L10 guns are STI/SVI Limited guns, downloaded to 10 rds.

That said, L10 is a great place to have fun with whatever gun you have that's over 9mm and doesn't hold 18 rounds or more.

I shoot my duty USP45 and do fine. A CZ would be pretty cool - or an HK, or a single stack...
