The perfect pistol
« on: September 08, 2019, 04:22:37 PM »
Its JUST SO EASY to shoot the P07 well - it just flat out locks into the hand and provides SUCH an accurate pistol even at speed.

If it had the LONG PADDLE mag release like a P99 AS, it would be perfect.  Oh, that we could see more paddles...

But then it would be like wulther and wulther is german for tooris.  You ain't gettin CZ to re-engineer their lines to paddle releases.Not going to happen. But hey give them a call and put in a request. Or just buy a wulther or even an HK which is short for Holy Krap this gun has a lousy trigger.

Hi folks !
     After a 40 year hiatus I accompanied a friend to the range, rediscovered pistols, and started the quest for a reliable,defensive handgun. I handled about 20, rented 11, and definitely preferred hammer fired weapons. I liked the Sig P229, Beretta 92 compact, and the HK P30, but wanted to try a CZ before deciding. Travelled the 125 miles, and the wife and I rented a P07 and P09.  Case closed !
     I grouped better with the 09, but was more comfortable with the 07; and decided time and practice would close up those groups. The P07 Just felt absolutely perfect in either hand..... and yes, those groups have closed up !

Good choice!  I LOVE my P-09 but the P-07 is a bit more convenient when you consider size.

Yes, just got a P30 recently and it’s great, and love the paddles.  Superb weapon.  Makes me want a lighter DA on the HK and paddles on the CZ.

Welcome back to shooting.  Every time I take new shooters out to try different style handguns, they always come away preferring the P07.  The bench will have Glocks, CZ 75s, 1911s and even the occasional Bersa but in the end, it’s the P07 that they preferred.

Congrats on getting back into handgun shooting and on the choice of weapons!

I am just now getting completely comfortable with my new P-07.  I love how it shoots - but I don’t shoot it as well as I do my SP-01 Tac or my P-01.  I’m pretty sure it’s all a matter of comfort after putting rounds down range.  As the round count goes up - the group spread shrinks!

It's funny, I own some DA/SA pistols that are twice the price of the P-07, and certainly in some ways are more refined, but the reality is that there is just something about the P-07 that I love. And, I tend to shoot it better than those fancier guns as well.

I got lured by something else this past Spring, and traded my original P-07 in. I ended up missing it so much I recently had to pick up another one!

The perfect pistol?

It would shoot like my P07 DUTY.  It would be as reliable as my P07.  It would be as easy to carry concealed as my P07.  It would feel like my P01 Omega in my hands.

I'm not stuck on the .40 or the 9, but it's got to shoot like the .40 S&W P07 DUTY and be as reliable as that and be as easy to carry as the P07.  I've just never gotten around to buying/keeping a P07 in 9MM.  Got carried away with the CZ75 Compacts, P01s, etc.
I stopped carrying the SIG 556R.  SIG changed models and couple/three times and stopped supporting it with parts.  So, I stopped supporting SIG.  Back to the tried/true AR15 Carbine.

This is how I feel about my P-09 UG/SR. I have owned it for a while now and it is just awesome. I keep ptting it up against other guns expecting me to like it less, but I just dont. Recently took it to the range with my Beretta LTT Elite and 92A1 (with trigger work) and I was blown away how it was not shadowed by the Berettas. Don't get me wrong I LOVE the LTT Elite. I is a work of art. On paper it blows the P09 out of the water, but when shooting, for me, the P09 just does something for me.

One of the beautiful things about the P07/P09....how can something that cheap shoot those small groups.

Ask Joe L., he's probably got more Bullseye time with the po7 and the po9 than any of us.

It is weird, but the shorter grip makes the hold easier and steadier - just locks it in - even better than the P09.
