Title: Do I need a P01 if I have an SP01?
Post by: TripppleP on January 24, 2019, 10:59:06 PM
I just bought an SP01 and love it as I thought I would.  It was a treat as I had wanted one for several years.  I have a few pistols and have my carry pistols covered in every way shape and form. 

Do I still need a P01?  I am not sure if I do.  I have a G23 that is basically a similar size that I would probably carry if I wanted something that size.  So it would make the P01 a range gun and I fear I would shoot the SP01 a little less. 

What do you guys think?

I always wanted a CZ97 amongst other full size pistols and wonder if my gun money should go toward these items instead. 

Thanks for replies.

clearly you need to buy both a P-01 and a CZ 97    O0

You may also consider the PCR for a compact.
But if the 97 is one you wanted for a while, I would start with it.

I gave my sweet shooting SP-01 to my godson for his first pistol and have two P-01?s for range and carry and my advice even though these compacts are my gun of choice, skip the P-01, buy the 97 and use that and the SP-01 for the range if you feel you have the carry gun situation covered already.

I actually like shooting my all steel P01 more than my SP01. :)

If your budget is limited, then don?t get it. 

If you don?t plan to carry, then why bother.

I do like the size. I almost bought a 2075 RAMI last gun show, though.

I have an SP-01 that I have competed with.  I acquired a CZ 75 Tactical to suppress.  I have a Shadow 2 to compete with for USPSA.  I acquired a 75 Compact, just because.

Prioritize on carry options, that may protect your life or loved ones.  Then buy fun stuff for the range or TSHTF prep (AK or AR for example).  This is the time to stock up on ammo or components while prices are down.

Just something to consider.....by consolidating your ammo to 9mm, you can buy in bulk and shoot more often. The price of good quality new 9mm brass (like S&B) is approaching 15 cents a round. The money you save will pay for that P-01.  O0

Correct answer. P01 is darned nice but sp01 is a better range gun. G23 Is perfectly good carry choice.  Cz97 is the logical next add. P01 goes on the "someday" list.

I too would like a  97 next. Torn between a BD or trying to do a SAO. Can't decide if I want to run it like my CZs and Glocks or like my 1911.

I would say yes, but that?s because I?m not a G23 fan. Had one, didn?t like it/ bond with it.  My P01 and PCR are the ideal carry guns IMO- the perfect compromise between size, capacity and performance.

I use my P01 /PCR in my local IDPA matches successfully

If the G23 is your ideal carry gun, then look at the 97

Good luck

You need both. I have my P-01 for carry and the SP-01 is my bed side gun. Just put the Pro package on the P-01 and well worth every penny.

I knew I shouldn't have opened this thread. Now I need a bull shadow sp-01 and a p-01.

My carry guns are a P01 and a 2075 Rami with a Shadow Line Compact as my 3 is 2 gun if one of the others were to go down.
That said and all I still say you don?t need a P01 for your stated needs and the 97 is by far the better next gun for you.
That is until you wake up one day and decide you don?t like the Glock for carry anymore, then you?ll need a P01.

Well, I ended up getting the P01.  I bought a used one from a guy local to me for a great deal.  I really like it.  Its light and fits in my hand great.  Its soo much lighter than the SP01. 

Now its time to save for the 97.

Do you need it? Well that can only really be answered by you. Since you have an SP01, then the P01 would compliment it nicely. You can use the SP01 mags in the P01 as well. My first CZ is my SP01 Tac FDE and it is my favorite handgun in my safe. I may not shoot it all the time, but when I do it is amazing.

I actually have eyed the P01 for a while now and finally just went for it. Ordered a P-01 Omega UG SR from CZ and it will be in this week.

     Hiya TrippieP,and thx for starting your still popular thread. Shall be interested to see what ya end up deciding. My PO-2 omega was my first and the shadow PO-1 my second so I was glad to dedicate the smaller,lighter,of the two for carry and the shadow to the range. The heavier with the longer barrel seemed easier and more accurate, so more fun to shoot. I have a 97b in our ads here, its quite accurate,but think its weight and size is not realistic as a carry,but range gun or to add to your collection is a fine idea. Let us see what ya decided. And you can always recycle the g23, I've found it works better as a door shop than downrange, ha.  Be well.

I bought an SP01 a few months ago and think its great for HD (bed side gun) and it's fantastic at the range, but its heavy and not preferable for carry, so I need to get a P01 also, which I am planning to do.  I have a S&W Shield in 9mm but that's for summer clothing. A P01 will be a nice middle ground between the Shield and the SP01.

I've had the Shield for a few years and really like it for a compact but only had revolvers for my full size guns so  I bought a 97 B right before I got the SP01 and also want Tactical Sport now.  And I want a P07 but can't get one because California politics suck, there are no polymer framed CZs on the DOJ roster.

I think I have the CZ bug. I just feel that CZ is one of the best value for your money right now.

That?s a tough question.  I have both a P01 and an SP01, but also carry a Glock 23.  If I had to choose, I?d let the SP01 go before the P01 only because I like shooting the P01 more than the SP01.  The SP01 is a sweet shooter, but there?s something about a P01 that just feels perfectly balanced.  The P01 also makes a great carry gun and with the SP01 base plates, you can run 16 round mags that fit like they were designed around the P01.

If you have no intention of carrying the P01, then maybe just sticking with the SP01 might be a good choice.  When I say that I enjoy shooting the P01 better, it?s when practicing shooting in a pistol bay with an array of steel targets.  It?s practicing defensive shooting with quick transitions that makes the P01 shine.  If limited to punching paper, I?d stick with the SP01.

Considering the very same question!  Currently have a SP-01 since it is on the Commie-fornia "roster".  However been hearing lots of good feedback about the P-01 and P-09 too.  For CCW learning towards a 2075 BD but again, due to restrictions firmly beyond my control, if I end up getting a RAMI it cannot be the decocker version.   :(  That said if you can afford the P01 and think it can serve you well as a CCW, sure buy it!  Please keep us updated on your decision and post pictures too.

 My P01 is a better shooter than my SP01.
Actually was comtemplating a CZ97 as well and got a SAR K2 and it's incredible.
Thinking of selling my SP01 to get another.
