Just ordered the CZ Shadow 2
« on: January 03, 2018, 01:03:32 PM »
Found the Shadow 2 I wanted at Kentucky Gun Company.  Outstanding price and just what I wanted.
Here's a YT vid of the one I ordered.
Now I'm needing an additional threaded barrel for  it and a good holster.
Suggestions welcomed.
Can't shoot it, when it comes in, just had major shoulder surgery friday, but I can play with it. 
Comes with 3 mags.

I do some steel challenges and local shoots.  I wanted the threaded barrel because I've got a bunch of guns and have almost all of them suppressor ready.  After I started shooting suppressed, I fell in love with it.  Having no need for ear protection is neat.  Sometimes, a few of us will go shoot only suppressed on all guns. I have range on my land (Oklahoma) and have friends with land where we shoot steel up to 1,500 yards.  Use some HC guns and some just really loud guns.  Shooting suppressed is handy.   
Add to that, I just like the option.

@BigAl73: Good video, Al. Now, I know why I want that gun so much.  ;D

I hope your Urban Gray holds up better than mine did. I had to send it back to the factory because of a pit mark and unusually fast rail wear. I have had other polycoat CZs that held up well but my Shadow 2 had to go back.

Congrats on the Shadow 2.  You'll love it.  It's such an amazing pistol and is stupid accurate.  You actually have to try to be bad with it to shoot inaccurately.

I just picked up my new Shadow 2 on Thursday and unfortunately, it's way too cold (5 degrees) to spend any quality time at the range right now.  But soon, that will change  8)

Thanks for the video, The Shadow 1 was great, I look forward to trying a Shadow 2.

I finally got to shoot my Shadow 2 yesterday at the range.  The range I belong to has a steel range so the plate rack and dueling tree saw a lot of action.  It is a great pistol and my experience shooting it matches all of the reviews I had read and videos I watched.  Out of the box trigger is smooth and it's super accurate.

I've had my S2 for a little over a month and am continuously impressed with it. A shop not too far away had some periodically so when I got to get my hands on one that was it and no regrets. Accuracy is phenominal. Mine says its urban grey but it looks more of a tan to me. I used to want a high end 1911 but not anymore

If any of you new Shadow 2 owners find yourselves not liking the extended safety CZ includes (in addition to the thin safety) PM me if you'd like to sell them.

Took mine to the range for the first time today. Man it is hard NOT to hit what you are aiming at. It made me giggle like a girl everytime I hit the bullseye. If I missed I knew it was me and what I did wrong. This is quickly becoming my new fave.

I got a notification from KGC, and within 15 minutes of the email they were out of stock again.
