    After carrying and shooting a Glock 17, Glock 19, Beretta 92FS I found out that I like my CZ-85B the most. This is the pistol I train with and I plan to stay with this design for the rest of my life. Is there anyone of you guys who carries and shoots only CZ 75/85 pistols even though he is able to buy a more expensive pistol?

    I'm not exclusive to CZ as I own other makes of pistols and revolvers.

    Although late to the party, I've become a huge CZ fan. Just this year I've picked up a CZ 75-SP01, a CZ 75 SA, a CZ 97B (The Beast) and a Kadet Kit.

    IMO, CZs are superb pistols and great value for the money.

    They're my first choice, but still a place in my heart for 1911s, Kahrs, BHPs, Sig Classics, and even a Taurus. Wouldn't mind having a Rohrbaugh or Boberg, for a super hideout 9mm.

    85B or SP-01 are always at the bedside.

    Not my choice but, some prefer the cz way of life. I used to do just that thing with the beretta line of pistols, but have since branched out.

    I you want to spend money and a CZ-type handgun is what fits you, you can drop a wad of cash (~$900) on a Swiss Sphinx.

    The simple fact is unless you just like variety, and can afford it, buying and using what fits you personally is far more valuable advice than buying something that costs more but doesn't fit as well.

    My wife is a CZ-only person, but that's what points naturally for her. She has a Witness "Silver Team" in .45acp, a .40 CZ Rami and a 9mm CZ75.

    Well I too can't say CZ only because I have other guns that I really like and there are other good ones that I hope to own someday but...
    CZ's are real nice. I like my P01, my 75 compact and my 75 BD. I plan on getting a 97BD and those new P07's seem to be a must have.
    So no --I don't have or shoot CZ's exclusively but they are high on my favorites list

    My 75B is great, but my 52 is a hoot and a half to shoot!

    But alas, I'm not pure, I have and enjoy several other brands/models too.

    We have several CZ's (in fact, 2 more coming next week). They're fine pistols, but by no means is the entire safe full of CZ's. Variety is, as they say, the spice of life.

    And here is primary with alternate primary.

    Even a dyed in the wool CZ guy like me has non CZs around - they just don't get as much play time. :)

    CZ is one of my primary platforms, the other being the 1911. I just finished a project on a CZ-97, an attempt to accurize an already accurate pistol. Here's a pic. The CZ-97 is one of my all time favorites. I have several CZ's in .22, 9mm, .40, & .45.

    Only CZs for me. Nothing fits me better. Even my Witness 10mm could be classified as a CZ I guess.

    I love my PCR and it see's the most range time. But I have a G26 that also see's back up carry time. CZ gun's are really hard to beat. I am glad I got mine before the price increases.

    I have a 75BD and a 2075 Rami and if someone said one mfg only I would probably stick with CZ. The 75BD is one of my favorite carry guns. Very comfortable in it's Comp-tac IWB holster.

    I've got a CZ 75B that is as sweet a pistol as you'll find.

    I bought it to shoot production division IPSC. At first, the long DA trigger pull out of the holster put me off. I had a blister on my finger after the first match.

    But, now I've put a couple of thousand rounds through it. And it is silky smooth. I no longer even notice the DA first shot in Production division matches.

    I've got an XDM 9 that just doesn't seem as comfortable as my CZ. And at first, double taps with the XDM were a nightmare! Although, after spending a few days at the range with the XDM, I'm beginning to get fairly consisten; still not as good as the CZ though.

    No way I could be CZ only though. I have a couple of very nice 1911s that are just so much fun to shoot with good quality hand-loads, that I will eventually move to single-stack and shoot the 1911 competitively.

    I also want to try a S&W 625 Michulak model. I think it would be cool to try to shoot a revolver in USPSA.

    Although I do not own only CZ firearms, I feel as thought they offer great value in any of their offerings.

    The pistols are superb, the rifles are aggresively priced for options and accuracy, the shotguns offer an attractive mid tier and the Dan Wesson 1911s are simply outstanding.

    I own many different types of guns, but CZ's are among my favorites. They hae the most comprehensive line of fine firearms.

    Once I get past that "made in Czech" thing I know I'll like it. I've been hearing so many great things about them that I feel that I'd be crazy not to get one to go with my German collection of HK's and Sigs. CZ75B in ST is the one I'm interested in.

    Get past? The Czechs have a long history of making outstanding firearms. The "Persian Mausers" the Czechs made under contract were works of art. The CZ line is superb.

    I'm Sorry

    I used to have a 2075 Rami and a 75BD. I sold them because I already had another 9mm. :uhoh: However, I do regret it. Please forgive me and don't kick me out of the CZ fan club. :eek: I'm looking for a new CZ, just haven't yet decided on the model. ;)

    And no, my gun cabinet is not exclusive to CZ.

    I have a 75B and a P01 9mm. I used to carry a Glock for work everyday, then changed to a Sig, then changed jobs and now use a Beretta 92...but the CZ's I own are personal favorites of mine. The Glock was good, accurate enough, the Sig was more accurate and I found it to fit my hands better and never malfunctioned, the Beretta is big but accurate and very pointable, the CZ's I own just feel right in my hand and if for some reason I'm having a bad day shooting and can't seem to hit the way I want with what I have I can pull out one of the CZ's and make myself feel good again! I'd take it to hell and back and never worry.

    The thing about it being a Czech made weapon doesn't bother me a bit...that group of people over there has been making weapons and killing each other for a lot longer than "Made in USA" has been in existance.

    A lot of German shooters like CZs.

    CZ 75s

    I have three CZ 75s ( the pre-B models ). Two were imported by Action Arms and the last was brought here by an USAF officer and so has no importer designation. I have a few other pistols chambered in 9mm including Browning HPs,SIGs,Glocks,Berettas,Kahrs,Colts and H&Ks. I enjoy firing my CZs as much as any of my other 9mms. I have found my CZs to be reliable and accurate. My CZs are great firearms and they represent a real bargain IMO from the perspective of "bang for the buck".
