Just paid for my first gun! (CZ content)

After weeks of talking about it, my parents paid for a gift for me today. A CZ 75 BD police new in box. It came with the 2 magazines, a case, and trigger lock for $615 shipped. More than I would have liked to have paid for it but not bad in the current climate.

It'll be shipped to my FFL and hopefully after the 3 day waiting period that's mandatory for handguns in Florida I'll be able to take it home on Friday. If not, it'll be sometime next week.

I won't be able to legally take possession of it until I turn 18 in August but I can sure get familiar with it until then. I did a lot of research and I'm kind of giddy now.

Nice! You can't go wrong with a CZ 75. They're like a LS1. Touched by god IMO. What's the police model though? I got my first pistol right after I turned 18 so I know that Giddy feeling you got. I had to wait 2 weeks and I thought I was going to die from the wait. You're going to run into all kinds of people trying to tell you it's illegal for you to own a handgun at the age of 18 (it took me 20 minutes to get the clerk at the sheriffs department to let me apply for a purchase permit) so go read up on those laws and just memorize em so you can prove em wrong. As a matter of fact print a copy of them off and keep them near by at all times. Astoundingly there are police on the streets that don't know the law so if you go through a road check or get pulled over you will have your ass covered on some level. Nows the time to start saving for sights and holsters. Once you got the bug you can't stop. This won't be your last handgun I promise you that. Congratulations!

I have a CZ 75B. Got it back in the late 90's early 2000's. Great shooter!
Last year I bought a P07 Duty with a threaded barrel. After waiting 8 months+, I took it to the range yesterday with a Tirant9 silencer. Very sweet. I have a Streamlight TRS2s on it too. I'm looking for a 97B right now.

What is the (CZ content)? Is it a CZ post warning?

The (CZ Content) is a habit I picked up on a bass guitar forum so people know what type of object to expect. On another forum, I might put "New bass day! (Fender Content)" to make it indexable by "Fender" and so people who are fans or not) know what they're getting.

You made me want a silencer now

as you can tell from my signature line, i'm very fond of the 75b. it's not just gun buying in general that can be an addiction. cz buying can be quite an addiction on its own.

Thanks guys! The pictures are awesome.

My dad doesn't seem to think there's any reason for a full size or steel handgun and doesn't particularly care for 9mm. He prefers his compact P250 in .40. So I guess it's going to be time for something of a shootout when it comes

Hopefully I will be able to pick it up Saturday and find enough ammo to shoot it.

i'm not sure if the bd police has the same trigger setup as the 75b without the omega trigger, but if it does, do some research on the sear spring flip modification (assuming this will be a target pistol). that lightens up the trigger A LOT. very crisp. regardless, swapping out the hammer spring and recoil spring will also lighten it and take out some of the grittiness.
