    Hello,
    I'm Mark Andrew Edwards. I have been shooting regularly since I was in my mid 20's but I just recently started buying and shooting CZ pistols. I'm impressed. I thought once the Striker revolution had come that I'd never buy a hammer-fired pistol again. I'm glad I changed my mind.
    I look forward to learning more.

    Thank you.

    I have always bought the high-end of every pistol I have ever owned. Then as my interest in the hardware matured, I began buying some of the lower- end products and then upgrading them to get as close as possible to the Rolls Royce versions. It doesn't save any money but what it doe's do is get you very familiar with the guns and to learn how money is saved by the manufacturers as the production pistols are assembled. Sometime just judicious polishing of the internals achieves a great deal and it sure adds a dimension to the pleasure of ownership. At one time or another I have bought the best offerings of all the competitive guns including the striker fired X5 series from SIG. Of all of them, the CZ has a quality that makes the gun slide into my hands as if it was meant to be there, The quality of both the designs and the workmanship can't be missed. The quality of the SIG's is always obvious too but at the same cost or less, the CZ's just feel better.

    I get that. I have become a fan of the Rock Island pistols as solid quality out of the box with tons of upgrade potential. Likewise, the CZ's mostly have been great out of the box. I'm very impressed with the CZ 75 and the P-07 in the stock configuration.

    Though I am less impressed with the used CZ 83 I bought and I'm discouraging trying to find parts to replace worn out springs etc.
