    I am interested in a second handgun (Sometime in 2014). I have a striker fired Ruger, but I have an interest in using a DA/SA in .40S&W. I have a short (wish) list
    FNH-FNX-40
    CZ-P-07Duty (.40S&W)
    Beretta-PX4Storm SC (.40S&W) - Kind of like this but then again that weird decocker- Flip Up for hot and it looks like it's flared outward too much. Makes the Px4 a distant 3rd.

    Any actual users would appreciate input.

    More people seem to be interested in buying the P-07 and P09 Duty pistols, than other CZ models.

    The P-01 still sells strongly though.

    People are waiting for the new P07 pistols to arrive.

    P-09 style hammer and trigger, along with some other changes like dropping the DUTY moniker for 2014.

    CZ-USA will stand behind any new pistol, and has wonderful customer service should there be any problem.

    The top one is the new design. The major differences are - They changed the trigger to the straighter one used on the P-09, changed to the P-09 style hammer, added the front slide serrations, started using metal sights, smoothed out the sharp corners and changed the type of finish on the slide.

    The first gun I purchased for my wife was a FNP-9 as an HD/range gun. It was a pretty darn good weapon - good trigger, solid reset, useable sights, ergonomic and well made. Then she shot my Sig. And it was over. I sold the FN to fund another project.

    I don't have any firsthand shooting experience with either the P-07/9 or the Storm.

    If the intended use is for a CCW I would look for a smaller gun than those you listed.

    The Storm Sub Compact is a good size for CC. People conceal G19's. I would think (except for that beavertail) a P07 or an FNX would somewhat work. Texas really changed their CC laws that printing isn't a big deal that much.

    I still really like the size& feel of the original pcr. Just really prefer the edge the .40 gives. Had a .40rami just too short on the barrel. I also prefer the decocker. Never carried anything cocked &locked that the safety didnt come off very shortly. It may b a well kept secret but i have many others told me the same yrmv. That & the fact cz is sooo well made accurate and have actual hammers is why i like em over others.

    I have been very impressed with the P07 so far. It is about the size and wieght of the Glock 19 but I like it better than the 19. The ability to change from a decocker to a safety is a plus. You can carry it either cocked and locked or decock it. Very accurate to.

    I've had a P07 Duty and it's a fine weapon, BUT my whole hearted advice would be to spend more for a PCR D or Rami. Like chrisp51 said, the 07 is similar to the G19. The only gun I've ever double tapped by accident was the P07....twice, in fact. Not sure if I liked that trigger. Good weapons, but nothing special. The PCR D and Rami? SPECIAL. Their accuracy, dependability, build, looks and affordability place them head and shoulders above the others. Nothing feels like a CZ in the hand. I also had the PX4 Storm SC. Good gun that just didn't quite measure up to those two CZ's.

    I have a p-07 duty and a P-09. Between the two I like the trigger pull better on the p-07 duty, it breaks cleaner. I will probably buy the new p-07 when it is available and then keep whichever one I like better.

    Po7 sounds doable if it comes in .40. Nearest stocking dealer to me is about 1.3 hrs each way. Itll b awhile till they r avail anyway.

    Do you like the flatter trigger on the P-09 over the more curved trigger on the P-07 Duty?

    I'm thinking of picking up a B series P-07 Duty, or the 2014 P-07 with the newer P-09 type trigger.

    For those who have not see one, here is the new P-09 Duty "Guardian Angel" shirt:

    I owned a CZ 75 P07 Duty in .40. Loved the gun, but as time went on, it was a little snappy for me. I traded it for a CZ 75 P07 Duty in 9mm. Love everything about it! Very accurate.....I'm getting a set of Talon grips for it.

    Think I need that shirt. :)

    I concur that for MANY years the CZ PCR to me was the absolute perfect carry pistol.

    [​IMG]

    The PCR has a number of advantages over similar pistols including the only loaded chamber indicator, the Novak style low mount sights, and the always rocking CZ quality. In todays world the alloy frame and 14 round magazine seem passe, but they are still more than enough. Remember the PCR is the base pistol that CZ Custom makes it's incrediawesome ProTek 1 pistol from, one of my dream pistols.

    The P-07 is completely different, but I can say that the people who bought the new models are VERY happy with them. I understand the grips aren't quite the cheese grater they used to be - I had to wear a t-shirt under it to stop from rubbing my side raw while carrying concealed. The P-07 has more mag capacity, a different trigger system, the ability to switch between decocker and standard safety by the user, and a light and durable polymer frame. If someone laid a NEW P-07 and PCR in front of me and said, "CHOOSE"...Id be dithering for a while...:)

    The last thing to remember is no matter what pistol you chose, how you carry it makes or breaks the system. Czech out the offerings at http://www.highnoonholsters.com/ and see the new Kydex holsters/mag pouches, which are currently available for the CZ75 Compact, (PCR)...and get a good gun belt, too.

    If I wasn't so into Glocks and striker fire, I'd love a P07. I especially like that you can go from Decocker to safety very easily. Someday when I have some throw away cash (like a lottery win) I'd like to add did SA/DA to my collection.

    I bought a 2014 P-07 about six months ago. The funny thing is one of the things I always liked about my CZ's was the steel and the weight (SP-01,P-02CZ85C) and really had no interest in a polymer CZ.
    I had a few extra bucks and got an email from one of the online gun stores I have bought from and they had the P-07 at a really good price so I ordered one.

    I was really amazed with how well it shot right out of the box. I had been shooting my SP-01, customized to be like a Shadow, in IDPA and really enjoying it. I shot several matches with the P-07 and my times and scores actually improved. I think the gun fits me really well and the light weight helps with my transitions.
    I have done some things to it to suit me and the only thing I really needed was a Black rear and FO front. The other things (springs) helped but the gun was fine without anything else.
    I am hoping for a FDE P-07 in 2016:)
