    Hello, happy almost fathers day. My first post here. I choose the CZP-01 as my first CC pistol 4 years ago. I was a little green. I didn't know what a decocking lever was. But I knew the SA-DA configuration was good for my average shooting skills.
    Since that first CC purchase I've bought only double action pistols. All of my shooting has been getting use to these DA triggers, and I ignored the cz for 2 years.
    Recently got the CZ out and my second shot downrange would have to be called an accidental discharge. My muscle memory had forgotten the hair trigger single action and I missed the target by 3 feet. So, i put my finger on the trigger before I was fully ready to shoot.
    Now I'm a little nervous mixing the SA/DA pistol with DA's and revolvers. So I thought I would look into a double action cz. Going to the CZ site I see all their compacts are SA DA.
    Any advice? Scolding?

    CZ makes (or used to make) a few DAO handguns, like the CZ100. Good luck finding one of those. ;)

    The easier solution is just to shot your P-01 more. Each gun has a personality. DA/SA guns take some getting used to. But, I love them. I have a CZ and a few Sigs that are DA/SA. And I have a few DAOs too. They're all good. You just need to shoot them more.

    Or even better, I'll take the P-01 off your hands and you can go buy another striker-fired handgun. ;)

    Welcome to the forum!

    Chalk it up to a learning experience and learn from it.
    The P-01 is a great gun (I have the P-02) and you should not use a gun's features to get around the rules of gun safety, one of which is to keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

    Some safe dry firing at home and shooting at the range will get these rules and your shooting tecniques burned into youir brain and they will become second nature.
    Of course if you are looking for an excuse to buy another CZ pistol, we all understand that.

    Good Luck and be safe!
