New favorite pistol

Post by industryDARK » Mon Jun 10, 2019 3:22 pm

I've been all over the place lately--Sig, Glock, Canik, and now CZ.

I was drawn to Canik (specifically the EC) because of the trigger and how because of it I didn't need to drop $200 on top of the firearm price just to get a low weight, crisp trigger.

Yesterday I stopped by the LGS and picked up a CZ Shadow 2, after a night at the range it has made me rethink every pistol purchase I've made to date. I'm far from a skilled shooter but this is the most accurate pistol I've shot, plain and simple.

If any of you haven't had the opportunity to shoot one, please do.

Does that include questing the Canik EC purchase? :d

Either way, welcome aboard the forum.

I wouldn’t say so, it’s been a great pistol to shoot.

If anything I’m starting to drift away from Glock when I consider how much work I feel they need to meet my ‘needs’.

I have an SFX as well but only have about 100 rounds down range with it, though so far it’s also a nice pistol.

I'd love to get a Shadow 2 if I could afford it, but unfortunately I can not. I have a CZ P07 and P09 however, and I think they are outstanding. And I haven't even Cajunized them, leaving them stock for now.

Love all my CZ's Shadow 2 is an amazing shooter. If I were to suddenly be limited to one manafactuer of guns I'd likely go CZ.

My son recently purchased one from Cajun Gun Works that was tricked out. He's a B class CO USPSA shooter and loves the gun. I'll be shooting it in a few weeks and can't wait to see exactly how good they are.

Guy I do run and gun with has one. Nice pistol but not one I would want to drag through a 10k run and gun. Then again I'm gonna be doing that hopefully with an EC

I really like my very basic CZs.
