    I just got back from the gun shop, along with my brand new P 01. I've been wanting one of these for a long time now, and today I finally got it. I just wish I had picked it up before CZ raised their prices. Oh well, I'm happy with it. I can't wait to get out and shoot it, though with my schedule as of lately, who knows when that will be :rolleyes:. I'm just doing my part to stimulate the economy ;)
    The FNP 45 I wanted to pick up as well was gone, I think I'm going to order one soon though.

    I got one for $450 around christmas ;) It's worth more. So far its 100% reliable, and accurate. Plus, it fits in the hand well

    Nice gun, Jeff. I really like mine; it feels like it was designed just for my hand.

    Would you mind telling us what they're going for these days?

    I got mine about 3 weeks ago. Test fire date said 14.02.08. Does that mean Feb 02, 08? 200 rds and it was grouping better than the initial test group. Sweet.

    Geneseo, I paid $609 for mine at my local shop. Probably a little high, in December, they had it for $569 and then CZ raised their prices. I probably could have found some place online and gotten it cheaper, but I really like the guys at my local shop and they've been a huge help to me since I took up an interest in guns last year, so I didn't mind paying the premium. I just got back from wal-mart and bought some blazer brass and WWB, they actually had some in stock.

    Think I still see some packing grease residue on it... That stuff is a pain to get off.

    Congrats on getting a new CZ, it's too bad the 40Bs aren't around new for $289 anymore or else I bet you'd have one of those within six weeks as well. CZs multiply.

    There he is. Thanks. I think I've been asking you questions about the P-01 since last fall. About time I got around to it, huh?

    Nice gun. I got one about a week ago and love it.

    CZ's are habit forming. I just bought a 75BD that was posted in the "for sale" section here. I decided to get it because of the price and it also has the same controls as my P-01.

    Are the night sights standard on the p-01? I just noticed them on mine, a nice surprise.

    glow in the dark green paint. they need to be charged under a lamp or UV light. in my book, it's a fail for defensive use. i painted mine white, and that's how i use it to race and for personal defense on all my 40Bs.

    That's not a bad idea, the green paint on them does seem a little dark, what kind of paint did you use?

    i grabbed a $1 can of plain latex based flat white interior wall paint. don't remember the brand, but it was from a discount store (big lots/odd job type). i'd imagine any of them work.... but from what i've heard, if you want a specific name, there's testors brand modeling paint that others have used.

    i'm also a tad colorblind, but it's a blue/black and a yellow/green... well, kinda. it's not bad, but i fail all those pattern tests the doctor shows me. the green is near impossible for me to see, especially with indoor or low light situations... that and i can't ask my attacker to wait while i get a flashlight out and charge my sight dots for a minute.

    ptnightsights and xs sight systems make night sights for our 40b slides, fwiw...

    Thanks for the info. I need to take it down and give it a good cleaning. The shop cleaned most of the gunk off because this was the display pistol, but there is still some left in the slide serrations and other nooks and crannies. Another question, what do you use for carry ammo? From what I've read, the P-01 will feed just about anything, but do you have any particular suggestions?

    i cannot... every gun has its quirks - the only true way to know is to try several down the pipe of one type and see if it works. that said, the winchester personal protection has a small opening and thus feeds great; i have a bunch of them from when i first bought the gun and didn't know any better. at the moment, i'm carrying 12+1 of speer gold dots. once i get my new magazine, 13+1. :) a couple have also liked the 155grn rangers too, btw.

    I have some Neon Orange Acrylic paint, craft section at WalMart, that I am going to put on the front sight and some bright white for the rear.

    I will do the same when my CZ 75BD comes in.

    again Jeff... i blew quite a few bucks to find good carry ammo. it's an insurance policy to my life. i ran many a speer gold dot to satisfy my function and accuracy testing. you should do the same.

    Will do burningsquirrels, I'm just trying to get some ideas of where to start since there are so many brands and flavors out there. Trying them is half the fun :)
