Fortunately, the helpful guy at the counter pointed it out, and told me if I liked the Beretta, that I should definitely try the CZ. I told him that I had been looking for one to rent, and didn't even realize that it had been sitting right there in front of me. I don't think you can go wrong with the Beretta. I still hope to pick one up one day.
      Thats great.Im headed to the Ft Worth gun show this weekend so Ill dig around.I hope to run across a CZ75-most likely will.

      Have you had a chance to shoot it yet??

      Just got back from the range this afternoon. I cleaned it up and oiled it, even though it looked pretty ready to fire right out of the box. I put 250 rounds through it the first time out: 50 rounds of Blazer 115 Aluminum, 100 rounds Remington UMC 115, and 100 rounds of American Eagle Federal 147. Smooth as silk through it all, with nary a problem. I got no real complaints so far. I've heard talk that the trigger takes a 1000 rounds or so to smooth out, but it felt great right out of the box to me. I think I may eventually repaint or change out the front sight with one that is a different color to make it easier to pick up............like red. The gun shoots great.........really accurate, but it will take a lot more practice on my part to do it justice. It fires a lot like the Beretta, with very little muzzle flip and fairly light recoil.

      I hope you get a chance to handle one at the gun show. It really feels good in the hand.

      Sounds like a good day! Ive read the same thing from CZ owners-the more you shoot it the better it gets.I feel the same about my Springfield XD-its to a point (probably 1000 rounds) that that it is very smooth.Maybe Im just more used to it now.Seriously Ive been reading everything I can on the CZ and have yet to read a negative comment.They may be out there but I havent run across one.I tend to almost over-research before I buy and always prefer to try before I buy,but if I run across a decent deal I may have to just go ahead and jump(providing I like the feel.)
      I shot the Beretta,but less than 50 rounds.Loved the feel and from a very limited time felt like I could become pretty accurate with it. Dang it-I just gotta try this CZ though. It never ends! Haha. I need to investigate the sight thing.

      I'm like you, I definitely over research before making a decision, but that usually prevents buyers remorse.

      The sight issue for me is that at my dimly lit range after a few consecutive shots, it is hard to pick up the front sight. I think if the front sight were brighter or a different color, it would make it much easier. I'm looking at a front fiber optic sight replacement...............its not very expensive, and something I can do myself.
