    HELP with DECISION SP01 or P01

    Going to the Orlando gun show this weekend and I'm going to buy either a SP01 or a P01 but I can't decide which. Buying mostly for range and HD use.
    Pro and Cons of each

    Pros SP01
    (1) Longer barrel length (may help me think I'm a better shooter).
    (2) More mag capacity for HD
    (3) Fits my hand pretty well (even with my small hands).

    Cons SP01
    (1) Large gun (remember my small hands).
    (2) Heavy gun (may not be a problem in the future I started going to the gym).

    Pros P01
    (1) Smaller gun (fits my hand to a tee)
    (2) Can use it for ccw (instead of my Rami if I need extra firepower)

    Cons P01
    (1) Shorter barrel length (may make me realize that I'm not such a good shot after all).
    (2) Mag capacity (though only 14 it's nothing to sneeze at).

    I realize this is not a great arguement either way, but it is all I can come up with.
    Any suggestions or comments whould be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I'd go with the P-01. It is, in my opinion, just about the perfect handgun.

    I wouldn't worry about the shorter barrel length. I've had a lot of luck with accuracy and I'm not an exceptional pistol shot by any means. Also, I'd think you should be able to handle any home defense scenario with 14 rds.

    I think the SP-01 is a niche pistol...I think the cons outweigh the pros for just about any scenario when compared to the P-01.

    My hands are small and my wife's hands are even smaller and she has no problem shooting the SP01. I have both SP01 and the P01 and although she likes the size and weight of the P01, she likes shooting the SP01 more due to it's lighter recoil and quicker follow up shots. I know that if we ever needed to use our guns in our house for defense, I would give her the SP01.

    I vote - CZ P-01. I love mine and even though I prefer a caliber that starts with a "4", the pistol is such a pleasure to shoot. The only thing that I don't enjoy is cleaning it. Them Europeans have too many nooks and crannies in their pistols where residue can hide.

    i was at my local gunstore today checking both these handguns out...

    i opted for an sp01

    ..but then again i prefer longer barrels as it easier to point and shoot...

    10 days to go and I get to pick up my gun!

    I've had my P01 for about a year now and think it's a great pistol for a great price. I'll admit that I haven't shot it all that much, but I can't figure out why the cz line of pistols aren't more popular than they are.

    I like CZ pistols, own a couple, but the fact that their support people will not reply to my requests for service, in the format they have set up on their web site, is starting to make me like them less.

    They have built a pistol, the RAMI, that has had a fairly high rate of failure to eject or feed issues, and instead of actively tracking them down and fixing them, for the sake of their reputation, they seem to dodge the issue altogether. That does not encourage people to buy their guns.

    Pro and Cons of each....
    I got an SP01 as I had a different agenda altogether:

    -- its more for practical, sport shooting and home defense
    -- i have a moderately-large hand
    -- i prefer a heavier, solid-feeling handgun in the profile of the 1911's
    -- i like a gun that doesn't need any investment out of the box to bring it to the next level
    -- no options for us here in CA on magazine size (maxed at 10)
    -- i got a 9mm to make ammo costs more manageable
    -- i like a handgun that is "user-friendly" when it comes to maintenance


    so in my eyes...

    Pros SP01
    (1) Longer barrel -- Makes it easier to point and shoot
    (2) Heavy gun -- helps minimize muzzle flip and allows for crisper 2nd shots

    Cons P01
    (1) Smaller gun -- too small for a comfortable grip for me
    (2) Shorter barrel


    PLUS IN THE RARE OCCASSION THAT I RUN OUT OF AMMO --- I CAN ALWAYS USE IT AS A CLUB!!!
