Hey Guys I'm new here, I've been lurking to get some info for my purchase. So I thought I'd show you what I picked up. I'd been looking for a used sig, but I couldn't find one. But in the process I read all these articles on how people really like their CZs. I just happened upon one at a price I could live with and well I'm a new owner of a NIB CZ 75 Compact P01 9mm, 2-10rnd mags :D .

I picked it up this morning, cleaned off the cosmolean (?) grease, and went straight to the range. I shot 250 rounds through it. I'm no expert on how to give range reports, but I'll post a few pics I took. Please keep in mind I'm a novice handgunner.

When I got there I was pulling everything left, too heavy of a grip with my right or so I was told by the guy who runs the range. I just thought it might be off a little... But he picked it up and shot five shots damn near through the same hole:scrutiny: He was aiming at the little guy in the upper right in this pic.

He coached me thru a couple of shot (same pic right side of head POA middle of ear). He just kept going on and on about how nice of a SA shot this little pistol was. I think he may be picking on up soon from the way he was lusting over it;) .

I shot 250 Monarch FMJ 119 gr, I got a little better over time but I keep shooting a little high and left. No failures of anykind. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.:cool:

Here are some more pics:

I have fairly large hands (XL in gloves), but this pistol was no problem to handle with no pinky flop at all.

Hope this was helpful, any questions just ask.

Outstanding choice. I just got the PCR version (no rail), and am thrilled with it.

Apparently in addition to great beer and good looking women, the Czechs make a heck of a gun.

Welcome and good shooting. I have CZ 75 P-01 that I have not even shot yet! Been playing with an EMP. I guess my next range trip I'll have to take it out and see how it shoots. I bought it because it feels good in my hand, I have a Witness Silver Team I really like, and CZ has such a good rep I figured it just had to be a good pistol.

Congrats on the P-01 Doc_rab, and welcome to The High Road! I've got one, and it's my favorite pistol (and the one I shoot the best.)

Congrats on the P-01. Nice gun, very accurate, great for CCW too, although I prefer a PCR for that:D

I've heard a lot of good things about the CZ's. I will rent one down the line and give it a try. Nice pics!
