    My cz-85 is the best semiauto pistol I own. That's not going to sit well with the 1911 or glock crowds, but I see it this way: those other guns are very good at certain things, probably better than the cz, but the 85 is kind of like a utility infielder. It does everything pretty well. It's a gun for the woods, you can conceal it if you need to, high capacity, super reliable, can be used to compete in a pinch, it's cool looking, parts are available, the trigger can be quite good, and on and on. if I only could have one this would be it...

    I couldn't have said it better! I just click with these guns. I always wanted one, from the first time I read through "the CZ Family" publication by J.M. Ramos I bought sometime in 1990, and then I saw it featured in a shootout back in 1990, against all the other big names in 9mm hi-cap, in the excellent Guns n Ammo "Complete Book of the 9mm".

    ...I'll also add that I have lots of other handguns and I truly enjoy every one of them. If I didn't, I wouldn't own them. So it's not like it's my favorite gun out of just a few. The CZ is just that good!

    Same here. I have hangunnus collectoritis. One of each, please, and ten of anything that's really good....

    And I still love the CZ's enough that I just felt like startin' up a post...

    Gotta give honorable mention to my stockpile of Fabrique Nationale GP Comp HP's....the parkerized green Browning Hi Powers made and imported to the US only from 1987 to 1989, with a 6" barrel using an integral compensator barrel weight/front sight assembly that is clamped onto the end of the barrel, and a slick 3 lb factory target trigger with no mag safety interrupt! They're lazer guided blastwagons of the highest precision order and sick match grade barrels....

    A little off topic, but I also like my small-frame witness with the interchangeable 9mm/40sw slides. Not quite a CZ, but similar and good-shooting.

    I used to own a CZ-75B. It was a great shooter. But I traded it away for a new Browning BPS that my wife likes and uses for Turkey.



    CZ makes good stuff and great stuff. The CZ-75 is among the great.

    First round out of my CZ75 (nib) shot the red dot out of the middle of the target at 30 feet.
    Puts bullets where you point it.

    I fell in love with the CZ-75 the first time I picked one up..........but it was a danged 9mm, and I'm just not a 9mm fan. I kept sniffing around and finally found (almost) what I wanted.......An EAA Witness in the then-new 40S&W. The gun was a clone, not as finely finished, but solid and serviceable, and it taught this diehard revolver guy that he could shoot autopistols better than he thought. That gun got shot any time I went to the range, and often got too hot to touch several times in an afternoon. 40S&W brass soon became cheap and ubiquitous, and my gun shot cast bullets as well as jacketed, 140 grains up to 200 grains, and in my bowling pin shooting days, it gave the 45ACP shooters a run for their money with hot 200-grain handloads, and better capacity.

    One of the best attributes of the CZ/Witness pattern guns is the inherent strength and safety factor, since the slide rails are enclosed inside the frame rails, not outside like the 1911. (Jeff Cooper was a closet CZ-75 fan, and suggested the Bren Ten be based on the same design....so it was.) I've put handloads through my Witness 40 not sanctioned anywhere (strictly in the interest of scientific research, mind you) and the brass didn't last long but the gun never once complained or hiccuped. My 40 Witness was given to Wingnut when he turned 20, but I still have three others......a pair of 45's and a 10mm, and they're not going anywhere.

    But now that I'm without a 40S&W pistol......I decided to find a replacement, so a new CZ-75 SA is on the way, and it's taking forever. I'm really looking forward to getting this new carry gun. The ergonomics of a CZ, and the controls of a 1911. Nice combo!

    Put me down as a CZ-75 fan as well. Only change I am going to make is to get some slightly slimmer wood grips to replace the big factory plastic ones. It shoots awesome!
