I bought this for cleaning. This is my first pistol. Any cleaning how-to's kicking around here?
is your SP-01 from the 2nd batch of SP-01 pistols that are supposed to be here any week now? Or is it from Angus' first batch that arrived in late April? He's got my FFL and I'm waiting for the 2nd batch to come in, he said mid to late June. Looks great!
For some reason, I had an inkling it would be a CZ when I clicked that link.
Must be because I was playing with mine last night.
All kidding aside, nice looking gun. I may still end up with a CZ one of these days.
I'm actually a Canuck I ordered from a dealer up here. $690 ($555 US) shipped to my door. I've read a lot about how rare these are, I guess I got lucky
I didn't even realize I never got any shots of the other side!
There is a section on cleaning pistols, with pictures, on my website. The link is below.
Would make a nice companion to my P-01.
Great idea, do you use it on the sights also? That would be great to try out different colors to see which works the best for you, then paint them in..
How much did it cost?
How much did the pistol cost???
What are the laws there in Nova Scotia? Where can you carry/shoot the gun?
Can you hunt small game with it? Carry it on a boat when fishing?
We hear all sorts of draconian things about Canadian gun laws? Are the worst Federal, or do the provinces offer varying degrees of latitude?
quite work absolutely right, so he is still tweaking it.
Someday I will have one, a great pistol. The CZ75 Tactical Sport is another full size CZ I would love to have.
Great pistol, sir, welcome to the CZ club! Have you visited czforum.com?
I paid the equivalent of $555 US dollars.
Basically you can only shoot the gun at a firing range (there are several around). As far as carry goes, that doesn't happen. You are only allowed to transport it to and from the range. You have to get an ATT which is a permit to transport the gun. It is valid for 5 years.
No hunting with handguns and you can't take it with you on a boat.
Here is how I went about getting the gun and what was required.
1. Firearm Safety Course (12 hour course w/test+hands on)
2. Applied for my PAL (Posession and Aquisition Licence) - This involves a background check and a 28 day waiting period. After 32 days I had my licence in hand.
3. Picked out the gun and paid the dealer. He then starts a transfer to transfer the ownership of the gun from him to me. Basically, he notifies the provincial government firearms dept who checks with me to see why I want a gun (I told them target practice). Once it is approved by the provincial office it goes off to Ottawa (federal) for final approval. This took 2 days afterwhich he was clear to ship the gun to me.
4. Now that I have the gun I have applied for a long term ATT (Authorization to Transport). I am currently waiting for that. Once I have that I will be able to transport my gun to and from the range whenever.
The Canadian gun laws are pretty restrictive. There is a LOT of safety-related laws such as safe storage laws and transport laws. It would be nice to have more relaxed laws but honestly it makes me feel a bit safer knowing you have to do some work to purchase a firearm. It weeds out the wackos who should not own firearms. Anyways, hope that gave you some insight
I work in prison, and my ongoing informal survey of inmates has showed me not one inmate who said gun control of any kind stopped them from getting guns. One laughed, and said he could have a pistol in his hand before being out of sight of the complex on release day.
Gun control is for one purpose, and one purpose only - control of law abiding citizens. Here in the US, it has even been upheld that criminals cannot be forced to register thier firearms. Why? because it's a violation of thier 5th Amendment rights against self incrimination! So, only law abiding citizens have to register thier firearms....I am so glad I live in AZ, with no registration, license, waiting period, magazine limitations, purchase frequency limits, AWB, shall issue permit,...etc...
