I got my first CZ-75 in 1987 when the first cheap ones were coming in imported by Bauska. Great gun. I took it to API 250 in 1988 and Cooper grudgingly awarded me an Expert dilpoma with. I say grudgingly cuz' y'all know how he felt about the 9. The CZ-75's and 85's now are much better than the guns made under the Communists. You won't be disappointed if you get one.
