    Hello,

    I am getting fairly close to thinking I need a CZ Tactical Sport in 9mm. Purpose is purely for fun and accuracy. I don't do games.

    At $1,200, are there better options for a accurate gun? Would the CZ Shadow be better? Would even a springfield range officer be similar for accuracy?

    I know it is broad, but I'm looking for user comments or people who passed the CZ TS up.

    Thanks!

    If there is, I havent found it. I own handguns that cost 3x that amount and dont touch it for accuracy (Benched). However, I own the 40SW version, not sure how much the 9mm would differ...

    One thing to consider it is a large gun. If you do not have LG-XL hands It will be too thick for you to operate effectively with the stock wood grips.

    I bought mine earlier this year and have only ran a couple of matches with it. Its been virtually flawless. I failed to seat a mag in it fully once, so it of course, didnt go bang. But it counts as a malfunction in my book. Ive only got a little under 1000rds down the pipe, so far couldn't be happier with the quality of gun vs. cost ratio.

    May not save you any money but you could look at and compare the EAA Tanfoglio Witness Limited.

    I think the tanfo is more gun than the CZ. I'm sure you can find comparisons on line.

    I have the Witness match. Best out of the box trigger for a $500 gun. No travel and about 3 1/2 lbs.

    You may also want to look at the CZ SP-01 Shadow Target which is a bit less money. The Witness Elite Match is also a good gun, and less money. I do prefer the CZ's however, but that's just me.

    Love mine. The extra weight out front makes it hang steady for offhand shooting, and the extra weight overall helps with the recoil. Since I have a couple of old orthopedic elbow and shoulder problems, I appreciate that.

    I have fairly big hands, I think a person with smaller hands might have a problem with the grip size.

    I had one many years ago in 40 cal. It was well built but overall just a very large pistol. The one ding I would give it is that it was difficult at times to pinch the serrations on the slide to rack it.

    Hope you enjoy yours.
