No love for the CZ Drake?
« on: August 21, 2019, 07:04:48 PM »
My daughter joined the Clays team at high school (its nice having the best shot in school for a daughter).  Being a Rifle/Pistol family it was all new to us.  Talked with friends, reviewed materials online, handled some entry level O&U shotguns and landed on the Drake in 12ga.  Gotta say, if it holds up its a darn nice shotgun for $600.

The Texas Dove Hunters magazine usually sports a full-page advertisement for CZ shotguns.

In Sealy, Texas there is a range which has a lot of CZ shotguns for rental.  I haven't been there...yet.

At the CZ demo day at Houston's Athena Gun Club, I got to see and handle the new CZ 1012 (successor to the CZ 712 semi-automatic shotgun).

CZ24, 27, 38, 40P, 45, 52, Vzor 50, 70, 75BΩ, 75D PCR, P01, P07, Phantom, SP01 Tactical, Shadow 2 (Blue, Urban Gray), P09, P10C, P10F, 82, 83, 85 PreB, 97BE, 100, 1911A1, 2075BD RAMI, 452 American, 550 Urban Counter Sniper, 805 Bren, Drake G2, Duo & Z, vz24

I’m also interested in the drake , but am surprised by its lack of press. How are you liking it?

It'll get the job done for sure.
Shot the heck out of mine the first few weeks I got it (couple thousand rounds) and handled it like a champ. Had to change out the butt pad though. Took a good beating on my shoulder.

I do not know about CZ Drakes but I like posts about youth and/or ladies who try shotguns.  For rdcinhou, that Texas Dove Hunter folks call CZ's pro shooter, David Miller, a friend.  I was in a workshop class with the dove hunter magazine owners husband and wife as well as Dave Miller and Texas Parks & Wildlife (TPWD) game wardens and TX scientists and also two of us sporting clay instructors.  I am also a volunteer TX hunter education instructor.  The TPWD communication director chose me to attend the dove hunting 101 workshop.  I purchased my CZ pump 612 after speaking with Dave.  Dave or David Miller is sometimes on Gun Dog TV show where he talks about shotguns, dogs and also hunting birds.

DeltaGray - what would you recommend for an Over/Under for sporting clays?  I just bought a 1012 .12, still pending release under IL law.  I currently run a SKB O/U with Gracoil, but would like to change to a CZ.
