CZ-USA CZ 75 P-01 Handgun

After carrying my CZ 75B Stainless Steel Limited Edition for a while, I realized that it is just too big for my preference as a concealed carry gun.  I found myself not wanting to carrying it very often, so I decided to convert it to a dedicated competition gun by replacing the CZ Custom tritium night sights with a set of CZ Custom competition sights with a fiber optic front.  The SS LE already has all of the trigger improvements done to it (the double action trigger pull actually feels smoother than my CZ 75 SP-01 for some reason), so the sights were the only thing that needed to be changed. It should make a great backup competition gun to my SP-01.

To replace the SS LE as a carry gun, I picked up a CZ 75 P-01, which is a compact alloy frame version of my SP-01 competition gun.  The P-01 also has a hammer decocker, so that the hammer can be safely lowered like my CZ P-07.  I installed all of the same trigger improvement components from Cajun Gun Works and CZ Custom Shop that I installed in my SP-01 and SS LE and installed the CZ Custom tritium night sights that I removed from the SS LE. I also had the frame Cerakoted in Stainless (H-152Q) like I did with my SP-01.  I have to say... I believe the P-01 is the best carry gun that I currently own.  It is slightly lighter and thinner than my polymer framed CZ P-07, has twice the capacity of my two Sig Sauer compact 1911s, and I think it looks really awesome! 😎

Motorcycle Track Day - 09/12/2015 @ COTA

It's been a year since we were at Circuit of the Americas for a motorcycle track day with Ridesmart Motorcycle School.  The last time, I had a little bit of an "off" that ended my day early, so I was a little nervous about coming back. I took it really easy most of the day, but finally started running at my normal pace by the last two sessions. The weather was perfect for Austin in September, and we had a lot of fun. :-)

IDPA Indoor Action Pistol Match 09/09/2015

Another indoor IDPA action pistol match at Texas Panhandle Pistol Club. On the second stage, I accidentally turned on the safety while moving to the next shooting position, and then hit a "no shoot" target at the end of the stage. Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes... I gotta stop making mistakes! :-)  This was my first match using my home loaded ammo, and it is definitely helping my speed.
