CZ Bobwhite - What Will I use it For?
« on: January 08, 2020, 07:07:18 PM »
I have recently got back into shooting after many years off and am really enjoying it since where I live most clubs are outdoors, open all year round and inexpensive.  I have a bunch of pistols (22's-9mm's) and a few rifles (22, 223 & 7.62x39) which I use for target shooting exclusively and that's it.  Typically I get out 1-2 times a week.

But lately I've been thinking about a shotgun.  Now, I don't hunt anymore and probably won't, but I've been thinking about a shotgun and saw the CZ Bobwhite.  It reminded me of the first shotgun my grandfather bought me when I was 13 or so.  That was a double barrel 28 gauge which I used for small game but traded it for an Ithaca pump when I was in high school. But I loved that double barrel.

Last month I bought a CZ 527 Carbine in 7.62 x 39 and was really impressed by the quality of it including the walnut stock and the bolt action which brought me to the Bobwhite.

So I am thinking of buying one just to have and do some occasional target practice at the range, but that's it.  Maybe a block shoot?  Home defense, maybe, but not the best option.  I think I am wanting one for old time sake and I am a sucker for a nice double barrel with an English grip and at the going price point it seems like a great deal.  I'm looking at the 20 gauge right now. Anyone with comments on the new G2's would be appreciated.

I have an older Bobwhite I’ve hunted grouse, quail and pheasant with over the past 10 years. Great quality and price in a S X S, I would guess I’ve put 2500 rounds thru it and never had a problem. My only complaint is the stock was short for me with a LOP of 14.5”. That’s not a CZ problem though, I’m 6’6” and no factory stock fits me. IMO its a great it.

Just a comment on the lop on the Bobwhite. Yes it is 14 1/2 inch. Seems short to some, but the M1 Garand has a 13 inch lop. One gun fits all I'd guess.
