    Or does it depend on your gun, i've heard that CZ is a high quality firearm, however it may need more tender love and care over say a Glock or a Sig. When do you know it's time to get a check up to make sure its still good for several thousand rounds.

    That's for me to know and not you!
    easy checks like examing for cracks and warpage to parts, you can get a throat gauge to check the barrel, you will probably know when the spring in an auto is going bad cause rounds wont cycle all together or you will get jams. Thats what I do.

    I give them the a decent inspection after every shoot and really try to go over them about evry 500 rounds , with complete tear down and inspection

    Typically I just wait until they break. That's a pretty good indication that some attention is needed.

    I really haven't known anyone who has worn out a gun...I have known people who have had failures that destroyed their guns but that's a diff't thread.
    Really, just shoot your gun(s), enjoy them and you'll know when it's ready to get another gun :D ;)

    Neither here nor there
    CZs

    I beat the snot out of mine (Subgun ammo, no cleaning, etc.). No problems yet.

    No reason to clean them often unless you're shooting corrosive ammo, get the gun wet, etc. etc.
