Training for competition with a Cz DA/SA, should I practice with DAO Carry Gun?
I now own a Cz 75 Shadow 9mm that I got from Ghost Products. It has the competition trigger job, and I love the pistol. However, I don't carry that gun...it is for practicing so that I can be good enough not to be embarrassed to go to an IDPA Qualifier. I am getting better, being able to keep 90% of my paper target hits within 3" at 10 yards. I am working on sighting and trigger form so I can move the target out and keep it to 3".
However, I have also been practicing regularly with my primary carry gun, a Kahr PM9, which has a totally different trigger: Long pull about 6 pounds. Although I really like the Kahr due to weight, concealability, short distance accuracy and handling, I am concerned that my trigger finger operation will suffer because I practice with that long DAO.
I also have a Cz 2075 RAMI Polymer, which I can carry, but it is definitely heavier, thicker, and frankly, I don't like how the hammer sticks out when Cocked and Loaded....it cuts into my skin with IWB holster. Also, it doesn't have the competition trigger job, although I am thinking of sending it in for the job to make it nearly the same as my Shadow.
Frankly, I would love to have a Cz the size of the Kahr for carry, and have actually considered the Cz 83 for that reason. I also have a Bersa Thunder 380CC I can carry and it has a very similar trigger to the Cz 75.
I have started looking around for small, lightweight 9mm's with a similar trigger weight to the Shadow, but I am not sure that this is really a problem.
What do the competition experts here think?
Should I practice only with guns with DA/SA triggers similar to the 75 Shadow, or will it benefit me in the long term to practice and become proficient with both types of trigger operations?
If you have a carry gun you would suggest that would meet my training and practice requirements, let me know.
Maybe Cz will come out with a Cz-Micro for Carry.
Thanks, in advance.
