All the same, if you own it and give it a lot more time than several isolated incidents, it'll probably become second nature.

I handled a few CZs at gun shows and shops and the thing that jumps out at me is how heavy they are compared to other pistols. (About a pound heavier than a Glock.)

I'm saying you should learn to cock it, but if it bothers you that much, then don't buy it. It's not as big a deal as you might think, and you might be missing out on a good gun if one training issue turns you off about it.

Glocks are typically lighter than everything else, and since they're on one end of the spectrum with regard to weight, it's not really fair to make them the standard for "other pistols", but they are a little on the heavy side at about 35 ounces. Weight is somewhat a minus for carry, but a plus for recoil control (granted the weight is distributed in the right place) and since S&W isn't going to carry the gun concealed, it doesn't matter too much.

I will CC as soon as I can get a license and I'll look into getting a J frame or a Kahr or something

I'd like to get a Jericho 941 sometime. Looks better to me than the CZ-75. But I don't ever see them in my area so haven't been able to handle one. Magnum Research is no longer the importer for them, Charles Daly was for a short period but they're now out of business. So that may be the reason.

Also in the latest issue of American Handgunner it said that Kahr Arms bought Magnum Research.

So no more "desert eagle" branded 1911?
