I have a Witness P Full size 40sw. Very accurate shooting with nice tight groups. I.e.it shoots where I aim. I have had no FTG or FTE issues with any of the ammo I have run through her. I use it for home defense and CCW,  not on my person as it is too large but I have been known to carry it in a car holster on more than one occcassion. I love this gun!

Accuracy is very good. I can shoot 1 inch group from my limited at 25 yards from the rest. Match and Stock 2 are very close to that as well.

These are my competition guns, they shoot fast with low recoil and super accurate

I put a hundred rounds thru my brand new Witness .40 S&W P-S today, with no problems whatsoever.  I shot Winchester and Federal brass, and the weapon is sweet so far. I gave 300 bucks for this thing brand new and can't believe they sell them that cheap.

I have an EAA Tanfoglio 10mm Full Size. I went into the LGS to look at the Glock 20SF. (I am not a Glock fan. Not because of reliability, but, as my brother says, "Glocks are great as long as you like vanilla.") I could not bring myself to buy the Glock. Walking out I noticed the EAA. Asked the guy to let me hold it and give it a feel. 15 minutes later I walked out with a new EAA.
Accuracy - Absolutely amazing. Everyone who shoots it comments how awesome it feels and shoots.
Reliability - 100%.
Feel - Amazing!!!
Deal - $429 + 6% tax....WOW!!!

Congrats, man!  Dontcha just love it when those right place at the right time encounters happen?  After I get a .45 Witness match or stock, the 10mm is next on my list.  Put some pics up if you get a chance.

CZ 75BD
1.  The most accurate gun I've ever owned, possibly the most accurate gun I've ever shot.  Out of the box, the sights were dead-on.
2.  Hollow points- never an issue.  Only ammo to FTF or FTE was UMC.  Never shot SWC.
3.  N/A
4.  Currently MY go to gun, next to the bed.  Soon to be my girlfriends, too, now that she's shot it more than the PA-63 which resides in her nightstand.
5.  I will NEVER EVER EVER sell this pistol.  It's the best $335 I've ever spent.

Steel Witness .45 Full-Size
1.  Excellent accuracy.  Shoots dead flat, but a bit to the left out of the box.  VERY tight groups, though.  Never felt the need to adjust the sights, but I suppose I will some day.
2.  N/A
3.  N/A
4.  Never needed it for that, but wouldn't hesitate after qualifying some HP's for the job.
5.  Quite a nice gun.  I think if I were to do it again, I'd get one in Wonderfinish as the parkerizing or whatever the finish is isn't the best.  Held up so far, but not too pretty.  Came in the .22/ .45 combo.  Sold the .22 kit as it didn't do what I wanted it to do (shoot any kind of plinking ammo available for dirt cheap).  Accurate, though.

Looking to pick up another Witness 9mm (compact) or a PCR very soon.  I like the safety on the Witness better than on the 75B's as it can be used in DA mode.  Leaning towards the PCR, though, as it's lighter and I have no problems with using a decocker over cocked and locked.  PCR feels more comfy in the hand, too.  I do't like the magazine being part of my grip as on the Witness compact.

Glad you know NEVER to sell your 75 BD! I'm getting the SP01 Tactical late this year.Its like the big brother of the 75 BD, which I've also shot and was my first CZ that made me looooove CZ

Have shot a number of CZ's. Great guns. Still go to my Match Elite 9mm for every competition. Have the .22 and 45 slides also.
The 22mags required a bit of sanding but now I can practice bill drills without hiccups. If the slide stayed open on empty, the 22 would be a dream combo.
Mostly use the 9mm and have never had any issues.
Called Eaa a couple of times to ask about part mode and fitting, always friendly and knowledgeable responses.
Wish I could get my hands on a Stock 3 but maybe I'll just get another Match and turn it into DA.
Many guys who shoot against me with "open" gun$ have started looking for a Match as well.
Best dark horse on the market. If the grip was a hair thinner it would be a dream gun.

New to the forum.

I picked up one of Cole's TZ75 Series 88's last year....the one with the wonder finish with Mossad on the slide.  It has some pretty crappy sights, but has a smoother trigger than my Sig P226.... both single and double action.  It is also a tack driver.  After picking this one up, I decided to spring for a Jericho 941.  It has a weird double action pull, but not bad, just weird.  Single action is as good as my pre-B CZ85, but again with crappy sights.  Yes, it too is a tack driver. 

If I was shooting for $$$ I would be pulling the trigger on the old Mossad Tang over a  safe full of high  end pistols.  I wish that wasn't the truth, but such is life.

Witness Match 9mm

1.) Had some issues with it right away. The barrel lock-up was loose and groups were in the 6" range from a rest at 25' which didn't impress me much. I dimpled the slide in a couple areas around the barrel to tighten it up. It shoots a lot better but now its a little too tight. Haven't had a chance to mess with it since I had it out last.
I hated the factory sights and went with a fiber Dawson front. I Love the trigger!
2.) 2 FTF with FMJ last trip out but I know its from me over tightening the barrel.
3.) N/A right now but I plan to use it in a shoot that's coming up next month.
4.) N/A
5.) The factory grips were awful so I was forced to manufacture a replacement   O0

EAA Stock 45 ACP  (new)

Just picked it up and have only had it out once. 100% reliability and seemed very accurate. I was shooting various steel targets and it was very windy so I didn't test the accuracy. <-- next time!
Love the look of the factory wood grips but I'm still making Lava Grips for it.

TriStar L-120

Seems every bit as accurate as my more accurate polymer guns but I shoot steel most of the time. Fit and finish is very good.
Ill have to get some paper targets and document some accuracy tests from all of my pistols. I don't reload 9mm though so all of the tests would be from white box. I'm not sure anyone would care to see that.

CZ 75 Shadow Target (Just ordered)
They charged me then notified me 5 days later that it was on backorder.  So I'm waiting... who knows how long for that one. Very excited to test it out though.

Witness Steel Compact .45

1.) Accuracy
Accurate enough for defensive purposes.  It's consistent so any issues with accuracy can be addressed by minor adjustments in my approach.

2.) Feeding Reliability with hollowpoints or semi-wadcutters
Used aluminum and brass FMJ, and hollow points of various manufacture.  No issues at all.  Most were 230 gr.

3.) Target Matches you placed well in or game you have killed
No competition and do not hunt.

4.) Use as home defensive arm or CCW
Primary purpose is as a CCW weapon.  At this point just waiting on new grips, holster, and dual mag carrier.

5.) Any other comments you may have
I mostly have 1911's so carry will be cocked and locked.  Controls are familiar so that's important.  Also have a SAR B6P which is like the polymer Witness.  Like the capacity of the 9mm.

Just got a witness steel in 45 with the 22 conversion.

1. First time out and I think I did pretty good for a new guy. The gun seems to be more accurate than I am. Hopefully that changes the more I shoot it.

2. Put 250 rounds of 45 through it within an hour. Not one single FTF or FTE. Used federal bulk, armscor and blazer. The 22 conversion had one misfeed. But I only put 20 rounds through.

3. I won't be shooting target matches with this gun.

4. The gun will be primarily self defense. Ccw is not allowed in NJ.

5. The gun fits my hand perfectly. I have larger hands and the grips are perfect.

The attached image was the third set of mags I shot. Only 6 yards but I hit much better than expected.
