I was at my local Cabella's making it my mission to check out 9mm pistols I never had before about a week ago. I looked at the P99, The Browning BDA Compact, some 9mm 1911s and really just a whole bunch of things until I was just on the verge of getting the BDA. But then, before getting off the fence on the Browning, I decided I may as well take a look at a CZ. I asked to look at a P-01, the most modern looking CZ in tbeir case, and instantly fell head over heels. It felt perfect in my hand. The rubber grip panels were made perfectly, the weight was just right, the trigger pull was smooth and light for a double action, the controls were well placed, and the lockup was the most tight and perfect slide to frame fit I've ever felt in a pistol of its price range. The CZ came straight home with me and I could not be happier with my purchase. It was only after that that I also found out about it's stringent NATO testing and incredible reputation, so that only enhances the pleasure I get from my decision! I hope you'll all welcome me to the club. Sorry for the lack of pictures by the way. I typed this up on my Droid since my computer is busted and I don't yet know how to put phone pics up on the forum.
