    Love this gun. And actually for no practice with pistols ,other than an old woodsman, fairly accurate (at ~15 yards.)

    Bought some walmart Remington, and Winchester fmjs, 50rnds each, to see what it liked. Put 100 rounds through it so far ate it all. The remington was seated deeper though, made it harder to load into the magazine since the bullets wanted to lean up if i used the speed loader that came with the gun. no problems with wwb, fe wcents cheaper too.

    Going to pick up another 100 rounds of wwb, put some more holes in paper plates ( great cheap targets, about the same size as a 25yd slow fire circle. get your money twice if you eat on them first. ;) ) If this thing gets better after 500 rounds of break in... I like it even more..

    Thanks to all the CZ guys who recommended them. I am glad I went with it. Now I need more mags, and then some mods.

    Congrats on your adoption and we know that little one will grow to make you proud! Remember that adopting and raising these little tykes can be expensive, but if you treat them well and take them out regularly, they'll never let you down. Also, remember to bottle feed (break free) after every outing and change their mags and springs as needed like a good daddy should.

    Congratulations aka... You now own one of the finest firearms made, enjoy it for many years... and now, let the collecting begin!

    Here's the progression: SP-01 next, P-01, then the .22 Kadet (for cheap targeting), the 'core' is then in place... then on to the miscellaneous CZs. See how easy!!! And remember "Don't ever be afraid to open the Czech Book!"

    Good Luck and enjoy!

    I wanted a pf-9 kel-tec for carry, but am now considering a rami, or 75d. That's how much I like this gun right out of the box.

    Get a CZ-75D PCR next. Its similar to the P-01 without the rail, and yeah you need the Kadet Kit too.

    200 rounds through it. No failures.

    Was ejecting some rounds backwards at the beginning. Just kept shooting, after 75~ rounds, started ejecting more sideways like it is supposed too.

    Love the SA mechanism. Loved it since I shot my grandpas single six revolver.

    Omg dude... ZERO

    The first time i tried it! 100 rounds not one problem, but the casings kept smacking me in my forehead and shirt... Hopefully my problem goes away like yours did...

    Mine has since cleared up. Finished 200 rounds today. Using Walmart Winchester white box ammo.

    The shells are extracting right and clearing 5 ft to the right now. Just keep shooting, if it doesn't clear up, post in the main forum.

    If it anything more than a break in issue (springs, ammo, other). Other people besides me will know better.

    BTW: how you like your saiga? Want to get me an AK variant sometime.

    our sp-01 did the same thing at first but it went away. probably just part of the break-in process. we put 250 rounds through ours, and then i went and did a quick action job and a few other items. now it works incredibly reliable.

    One of my first pistols was the 75BD. I put a Kadet Kit with it and shot the heck out of paper. I kept asking the lady at WalMart why they didn't carry more WWB 9mm since I was shooting a LOT. She said "most people shooting as much as you reload". I now have over 90,000 rounds loaded on a Hornady LnL. Many of them 9mm, but quite a few .45 and various rifle calibers. Lead is addicting.

    If I get any more guns, will have to buy some reloading equipment.

    Shot 200 rounds, in a weekend. Could have shot much more. And only had one gun, two magazines.

    dude, get reloading equipment. seriously. it adds a whole new dimension to shooting as a whole.

    did you say you were into cars? it's like building your own engines instead of diving only what's on the showroom floor. it opens doors for opportunities. :)

    i'm going to make a thread soon that outlines what it's like from start to finish for someone with zero reloading equipment and not a lot of money.

    btw, 200 rounds isn't all that much. wait till you sport shoot. :D

    Ah yes CZ's. Once you pop, you can't stop.

    I only have one bought on July 3rd and I already want a couple more.

    Within a month the CZ75B became my favorite pistol.

    :D

    wolfman... The progression is as follows: 75B, P-01, SP-01, .22 Kadet (for 'cheap' shooting), then etc. etc... All I can say, to postpone the inevitable, is... (1) don't look at ANY of armoredmans 'family' pics...and (2) don't hold or view, in a gun shop, either the P-01 or SP-01 until you have secured the necessary funds!

    For now, one down, and many more to go... Or, as they say, "Get Your Czech Book Out!!"

    On the CZForum is a good mod with pics for changing the ejector shape slightly to throw the expensive trash out the "right" side

    Well, there is a sticky with a picture of the mod
    http://www.czforumsite.info/index.php?topic=8209.0
    However, the picture appears to be gone.

    Basically you just just shorten the ejector till the brass goes a reasonable distance. It's actually a considerable amount. I also angled mine to an angle similar to my CZ75B. Shorten it a little bit at a time and shoot it to see what happens.
