New Ammo from Double Tap.

No news guns to post about, but I have been testing out some new Double Tap ammo.


The .45 ACP and 9mm stuff is hot, but not as mucg recoil as the 255 grain Hardcast in .45 COLT from my wonderful Bond Arms Derringer.

Looking forward to cooler weather. Awesome pic of a P10-C and holster!

Hello.

Not much going on . Some .22 shooting, a bit of Scorpion, and mainly looking forward to some cooler weather after a blistering hot summer.

I'd like to buy the

SB Tactical SBT Evo Scorpion brace , but really think I need to save for a P10-C.

One in basic/combat black would suit me fine.


I'd opt for a Holster From BLACK ARCH to carry it in if I choose to do so.



This holster is top-notch quality from a very progressive and ever expanding company.

They even have new Kydex mag pouches to compliment their ADM and PROTOS-M holsters.

I've used their holsters when they were SHTF GEAR, and also since they became BLACK ARCH HOLSTERS.
Comfortable, and yet still secure.

Not much in the CZ rifle line that I want, except their .22 Semi-Auto called the CZ 512 Tactical.
Being super impressed with the 

CZ 557 Sporter

 that I handled last month.

I found it to be really smooth for a CZ that's usually a really tight action when you are talking
a CZ 550.

However, a CZ P10-C will be my next purchase in the CZ/DW line.

CZ's and Double Tap Ammo.

As many of you know, I've been a big fan and supporter/promotor of Double Tap Ammo
for over a decade.

Mike and those there at his shop in Utah, were friends during the early years of my founding of CZF and even this Blog, now into 2017.

I've over 5,000 rounds of his ammo, and only had 1 bad round, A half plated 9mm+P Bonded Defense round that somehow made it past Speer.No one at DT could be at fault for this
"almost" perfect Gold Dot.

These rounds ranged from .380 to .45 ACP and 10mm...along with .44 Special as well.


Given my exception of 1 round, I'd say 100% quality control and always superb accuracy!

Well, they are now celebrating, and it's meaning big savings for all of us.

Hot and Smoke Filled

Hi guys.

Due to the numerous forest fires in the LC valley and other parts of the North-West.

I've not done any CZ shooting outside of the indoor range (Diamondback Shooters)
over in Lewiston.


The EVO 3 Scorpion and RAMI, and RAMI BD have gobbled up more than a few rounds
in the past few weeks, and I can only envision a P10-C in FDE to someday join them.


Such a P10-C would be an awesome addition, even though some have been reporting minor teething
problems with the guns making thier way into tester hands and more customer holsters.

Issues with the hard to push slide stop, and mag release button are not as important as the people
who buy CRAP steel-cased or other cheapo 9mm and then blame the gun when it chokes!

Howevr, I know that many are not "Gun Savvy" and don't know the pitfalls of Steel-Cased fodder
and CZs, or any other quality pistol or evolver for that matter.

Some buy what's either cheapest or available, or what the local "Expert" tells them to do.

I like the Steel stuff in AKs, and even a Hi-Point or two. Anything that I don't give a hoot about,
or a design like the CZ82 that in my experience actually loves the steel.

Many a cop and soldier used their VZ82/CZ82 in 9mm Makarov with this typpe of ammo...
far before they carried the PCR or P-01 pistols.



$9.99 ammo in a $499.00 P10-C doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but then I've learned a few things
in over 35 plus years of shooting.

Basically, if you don't care how the gun will run, or more importantly don't rely on the cheaper
ammo to protect your hide, then you are fine.

In regard to the (rumored) newer models of the P10 family?

Their has been two camps on this subject.


Some videos and forum posts on various forums mention the expansion of the line.

The P10-F being a enlarged version of the P10-C with Duty Gun type measurements.

This will make those in Law Enforcement (I'm former) that prefer a gun that's bigger in
all areas than the current P10-C.

However, I'd have to switch side in this debate.

I for one, am of the smaller/concealed carry type CZ pistol crowd.

CZUB's P10-C manual also lists another of the P10 series called the CZ P10-S, or supposedly
like the Walther Police Pistol Slim (PPS) the S will mean Slim or Short, no real idea.

A 19.0 weight with a shorter 3.5 inch barrel and the same P10 magazine, but with only a 12-round
capacity.

Given the weight, I could see me carrying the P10-S with 9 or ten rounds of 9mm+P on board..
as my bad back (over 20 years of carying large and heavy handguns on a duty belt) can't tolerate
much more.

Some More Scorpion Shooting, and a couple Parts from CZ-USA.

This baby shot great!

One hiccup with Blazer aluminum ammo, but I've had CZs (and other guns) in the past that didn't like it.

Accuracy was very good@15-20 yards, despite being shot in "Pistol" mode.


Unlike me these days, the Scorp in FDE is svelte and light for a gun that can hold up to 30 rounds of 9mm Luger.

My new RAMI BD also got a short workout. The trigger is getting better each time I shoot it!

Jason@CZ-USA , was kind enought to send me a couple EVO 3 accessories.


Their 30-round magazine was a welcome addition, as was their
CZ EVo 3 Scorpion Ambi Safety Delete.

My intial range time with the new FDE beauty left me wanting one of these...
as the right hand safety pounded my rather fragile European derived pansy hand.



A person could wear shooting gloves, but I'm told that they don't really help much.

One option is to grind down the right hand safety as shown on You Tube and other places.

The most common,  being to buy a Safety Delete from CZ-USA .. or other vendors with
Evo 3 parts for sale,



Well, the new EVO mag and safety delete looked good the their packages.

The small part shown was the most desired item, and I soon set forth to install such.


After watching a video, the install was a piece of cake.


I plan on shooting both the EVO 3 Scorpion and the BD much more this year...
as I save towards a CZ P10 C to test out when the cold weather starts up again.


Don't know if it will basic black or FDE.



Those interested find Evo 3 Scorpion and other CZ/DW parts at the CZ-USA webstore:

FDE EVO 3 Scorpion

By good fortune, and a good friend in Utah.

I was lucky enough to pick this up yesterday:


My plan is to shoot it on Friday, and add a KAK brace later down the road.

Thanks, to Eric and also to Jason@CZ-USA for this great 9mm.

Finally!

Hi again.

Warmer weather here and some good luck on my end.

I was finally able to handle a P10C the other day...along side an also new
Shadow 2.


All I can say is that after I was able to handle the FDE P10C and test out its trigger..
then handle the equally sweet Shadow 2, is Wow!


Firstly, I've been wanting to get my hands on a P10C since Thanksgiving.

Every article or pic I've seen of them has been both very positive or enticing.

The good folks@CZUB have been cranking them out..and despite the delays in them
getting over here to CZ-USA for distribution..they are now showing up.

Egonomics: That's a big word on how something feels in your hand, at least when we are talking handguns.


The P10C felt great in my hands.  It pointed very very, well..and despite seeming light for a 
duty type or concealment arm...it  had a good balance (unloaded) and a solid feel to it.

I did notice that CZ's FDE color seemed even lighter than in most pics I've seen.

Trigger: Something that reviwers have raved about wioth this CZ model and the one that I handled was no exception.

Unlike with my RAMI BD that I struggle with for the first shot in Double Action mode.

I had no problem pulling the P10C 's trigger in dry-fire.

Light and crisp, or crisp and light, it was by any words: Awesome!


The grips does look longish in pics, but the gun felt good in my hand...
pointed well and the grip didn't really seem all that long.


Sights: These were the glow sights that CZ has on some pistols, and not real-deal
tritium Nites that most people want.

As for me carrying a P10C, I'm sure that a 15-round magazine would bump up the ounces, and like with my bad back and a RAMI or PCR, the P10 would be a stretch for me to conceal on most days.

With re-injury to my back last month..I'm afflicted by chronic pain, and even my RAMI, or RAMI BD are too much for me to carry in the past few weeks.

However, for those of you out there, the 26 ounce P10C should pose no problem(s)
and will probably make for a dandy carry or home defense gun.

Home defense and the indoor range would be the roles that my eventual purchase
would be for.


My choice will be the black P10C in 9mm.





In regard to the Shadow 2.

It was an all black beauty with some racy lines and a sweet as pie trigger.

I did have some trouble with the DA pull, but found it smooth and delightful in single action.

The  front sight seemed to loom ahead of the gun and make your eyes concentrate soley there.

I believe that the front heavy..or muzzle heavy feel is what they were going for as it should
keep 9mm recoil wayy down.


Should  a person want to compete with the big boys, the $1,100 Shadow 2 should 
give him/her a fighting chance,.
