I joined to get some non-biased ;) feedback that will help me make a decision on which CZ to purchase. My wants/needs are : home protection, bed-side table piece, accurate to point (iffy vision), smooth firing. My background with small arms - currently own a 1972 Colt Govmint Special 1911 .45 ACP.... heavy and loud.. accurate though... i earned expert with it at 25 yds on the gun range in the Coast Guard in 1973. Last 9mm I owned was an XDM about 4 yrs ago. I actually found the black on a 10" target at 100 yds. one day. It felt like a wimpy pistol. So about 2 yrs ago I read about the SP01. I never actually searched for one but then I stumbled upon one in Wyoming at a gun shop and I was so amazed at the feel, the mechanics, the trigger pull, the sights, etc... that I put it back on the counter immediately.I was in love. Fast forward to now. My son purchased a Glock 19 in spite of my urging to shop CZ, so I tried the Glock and it was NOT the gun for me. Nothing about it was right. Couldn't hit find the red at 15 feet!!!  I have yet to actually fire a CZ. The now also includes pouring over reviews and comparisons. Yesterday I went to the nearest CZ dealer (85mi) and they had a decent inventory. The CZ in Wyoming was the standard 75 SP01, yesterday the dealer had a Tactical, no phantoms, a few P09's,10F's, 07's, and a 10C... some .40 calibers as well....They all made my head swim and confused even me more. There is no place that I am aware of that sells CZ's and has a range to test house demos... I live in a CZ desert. so based on fit and feel i would rank accordingly 1-SP01 Tactical , then 09, then 10F.. I don't C&C but am considering in the  future.

Lot of CC discussion, but I don't see that on your "want" list so I'll give you feedback on mine -

CZ75B - Just a nice gun. Shoots well. Based on the classic CZ75. Hard to go wrong. Pros - accurate, reliable, smooth shooter. Cons - sights and trigger.

P09 SR - Big Polymer gun with suppressor ready barrel and extended mags. I really liked mine (sold because I have too many full size pistols). Very accurate and smooth. Makes for the ideal nightstand pistol that's pleasant to shoot at the range. Pros - Accurate, reliable, high capacity, light rail, nice sights. Cons - it's big, which may not be a con to you.

P01 - Just got mine. Basically a mid-size version of the 75B with light rail. I like mine quite a bit. Fairly accurate, controllable, and has that "just right" size for me. Pros - Basically same as the 75B. Cons - again, same as the 75B. I have a CGW Pro kit on the way and some tru glo sights on the bench. These changes will make it ideal for me.

Good luck in your search. You really can't go wrong with any of your options. Basically decide if you want a polymer or metal gun, a striker fired or hammer gun, and then pick your size. They all shoot great.

Since the OP newby is long gone, I'm assuming he/she said 'newby' at the lgs and they had a Glock in stock to sell.  Just pull the trigger, lol.
