I'm a new/old member.  I haven't been on much for about 18 months or so.  After three surgeries, chemo, radiation, etc. I am finally on the road back.  When I was initially diagnosed I had 23 CZ handguns, 19 of which were fully Cajunized.  Due to missing a lot of work I sold a few at a time until they were all gone.  Now I am doing my best to save up and try to get some of them back.  Some friends of mine pitched in and bought me an SP01 and had it Cajunized and gifted it to me so I would not be without a home defense gun.  That is a truly remarkable gift.  Anyway, I got my first one back yesterday so things are looking up.  Thanks to everyone for the good wishes. 

P.S. The one I got back is my alloy compact w/ safety and no "dimple" on the forward part of the frame.  It's not a PCR/P01 or compact frame.  It's a true unicorn until I see another one.  ;D

Welcome back Birds - should we change your username to 'Birds Return'?

Good to have you back and to hear you’re on the mend. I remember that alloy Compact without the flute as being one of your unusual CZs.

Welcome back Birds.  Remember you can always replace firearms.  But you cannot be replaced.  Good luck on your mend.

Welcome back! I can't count how many times I've gone through your old threads about tuning up these guns. My first SAO pre-b was pretty much your fault. 8)
Glad you're on the mend.
