"Stolen" Christmas gift

Received this NIB from the Little Lady this Christmas and haven't seen it since.

Am 110% sure where it ended up and am sure it's gone forever.



Something tells me she will be receiving a flathead Supercharger for her upcoming birthday, just saying.



That is all.

Nah, the Mrs confiscated it & has it in her CCW purse.

Her and her girlfriend are going to the club today to send some rounds down range and since her regular carry pistol is sitting on the dresser......
Hope she enjoys this gift of mine, as I'm sure I will get alot of use out of her birthday gift.

Love the DA/SA CZ platform (and that coming from a 1911 guy)!

Here is my full size Pre-B CZ-75 purchased new in Europe back in '85.

The Mrs. truly enjoyed shooting this ^ gun so I'm not surprised she gifted "me" the compact version.
Her EDC for the past decade has been a 2-1/2" Ruger SP-101 stoked with 357mag that she has tried to wear out.

And for the Lords that enjoy blues, check out this Robert Charels guy from the big apple. Dude has talent with a capital T.

I've got the hammerless SP101 I like to carry with me when hiking and whatnot.

Awesome firearm! I usually carry one with .38 shot loads while hunting in snake country.
With you hiking in and around cat/bear country, perhaps a 44mag or 454 Casull is in order.......just saying.

She did, stated the new CZ shoots real nice............ and needs to be cleaned.

Dunno how big CZ Uhersky Brod (not to be confused with Česka Zbrojovka Brno, the company behind the ZKR revolver) is in the US... In continental Europe, it's very popular, as they're fairly inexpensive (compared to the German, Austrian, American and Italian competition) and reliable (so I've heard).
As a non-shooter, I can only deliver an opinion on aesthetics - it's one of the best-looking (if not the best-looking) service pistols designed in Eastern Europe (maybe save for the rara avis, the 1930s Polish VIS).

Off-topic, I still remember some theory from a few years ago, but my shooting hobby didn't go beyond killing empty beer cans with an air rifle -'my biggest achievement was shooting down a wine cork from 30m, with iron sights only. Pretty pathetic, my skills. I know. And they won't get better. If I was to go into any arms-related hobby, it'd be learning the Polish sabre or the medieval European longsword, both of which make the katana look like a primitive savage. Of firearms... Black powder shooting, maybe. But with so many watch plans for the budget, this will have to wait a few years.

Awesome looking, highly accurate & reliable as hell.

CZ's are only popular with those in the know. I am a .45acp guy and will only shoot 9mm if they are in a all steel CZ-75 .

In semi-automatic, most here in the States typically shoot Smith & Wesson, SigSauer, Glock, Springfield Armory, Colt etc. Those here that know about these Czech made weapons are true fans of the platform.
First purchase was in Italy, and had to submit & re-submit importation paperwork over & over before the two were allowed by BATF to be brought in (was a 2-1/2 year ordeal). Upon entry, I promptly sold one of them to a sibling.
I cannot confirm nor deny the third one was purchased in Chile :twisted: , no restrictions with the host country, just not allowed to be brought onboard the aircraft carrier......... or smuggled into the states. Said smuggling was much easier when you flew aircraft for a living (so I'm told).............that pistol went to a different brother of mine.

The fourth is the compact one shown at the top which "I" received as a gift. Am sure this one was gifted because how nice it fits in a purse IWB holster.
