It's a race gun, not a collectible. I'd shoot it and keep shooting it, like it was meant to be.

Yes! Same. Get that bad boy (girl?) Dirty! My guns are for shooting. And such a nice looking gun has the added bonus of shooting in style!

JMHO, The  "value" of a firearm is that it does what you bought it to do.  The better it does it,  the higher the value...to You.
If you bought it as some kind of investment,  don't shoot it.
If you bought it to be a shooter,  shoot the heck out of it and win those competitions!

All very valid points and opinions.

I bought it as a gun for my collection and am lucky to have 2 Czechmates to shoot for fun.

So to keep it in pristine condition, from a collectable point of view it will be a gun on the wall for me.

Thanks for all the input.

That's beautiful. It'd be tough not to take it out to the range though.

I guess having a regular Czechmate, not shooting the Parrot is understandable. I'm just getting more into CZs, have only a TS but have a Parrot incoming in a week or two which I'll be shooting. It's one of those things where I doubt value will be affected much; if someone wants ome, they'll pay for one, even used.

I've seen a few of your other posts, and know you're also into the Sig Mastershop pistols. Those are my bread and butter. I used to just let them sit in the safe. After getting rid of a few, I realized the waste of that. So, now, I'm shooting everything.

My Czechmate Parrot arrived yesterday!  It's got the TSO checkering.  Although the checkering covers a smaller area than the Tactical Sport's checkering, it still feels very good (grippy) to my hand. I likes!  Of note is they still use the TS style checkering on the front of the trigger guards.

Very nice!  Agreed, that TSO checkering is so much better.  That's going to be a great piece to show off on the range!
