      While I like the CZ75 pistols quite a lot, I'd pass on any pistol with a decocking lever. I want to carry these guns in Condition One only.

      I am with Mike on the CZ-75. Condition one is the fastest way to bring the auto into action.

      I'm fairly new to handguns, but with the BD (decocking model) don't you just have a heavier double action pull to contend with on the 1st shot when the hammer is lowered?

      I was leaning towards getting the BD model of the cz75 as I loved shooting the 9mm cz75b, but I do not like the idea of carrying a gun depending on the safety alone. Hammer down just feels more natural to me, and the BD makes it easy to do that.

      New shooters are often more comfortable with hammer-down carry, despite its several disadvantages. More experienced/trained shooters are generally more comfortable with Condition One carry.

      One should always get what one is comfortable with, but the crunchenticker trigger system is a disadvantage when it comes to shooting both fast and accurately.

      Are you sure you don't mean CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow?

      Based on the SP-01, it has no firing pin block. Fiber optic front sight and tactical “Novak style” rear sight. It also features a slightly reshaped grip and safety, and a “weaker” recoil spring. supposedly for easier reloading.

      Weak springs in CZs have been responsible for a number of FTF/FTE malfunctions.

      After a spring upgrade, the condition one carry plus restrike capable make CZs good service pistols.

      Crunchenticker? That's just your way of saying long hard pull when the hammer is down right? Or is that actually a real word.

      I also don't plan on using this as a carry weapon anyways. My state doesn't allow it and the cz75 is too big and uncomfortable to want to do so anyways. So in my case I'm worried less about speed and more about not shooting myself or someone else. Even more importantly, to prevent any friends from relying on the safety and going KAPOW.

      It's a Jeff Cooperism. On a DA/SA auto with a decocker, the first shot goes crunch, then the succeeding shots go tick. Thus, crunchenticker, which is probably the most difficult pistol design to shoot fast and well.

      Not shooting yourself or someone else has nothing to do with the pistol and everything to do with following the Four Rules. Safety lies between the ears, not between the hands.

      If your buddies are incompetent gun handlers, don't let them handle your guns.
