Get well soon. Now might be a good time to learn to shoot left handed.

I worked many motorcycle wrecks in 25 years of police work, not a single motorcycle won. It may not sound like it but you are way ahead of the aftermath. Heal quickly and much happy shooting.

this I know and understand, I always wear my gear all the time, full race boots, gloves, etc. I was very lucky the way it turned out.

basically I was making a left turn on a 2 lane turn lane, first one in line outside lane, as the light turns green and i start going the car on my inside moves right, i move right to avoid, they keep coming and never saw me, Florida old couple etc.

i ended up in the easement jumped a curb and clipped a telephone pole with my right hand/side, if I was a few feet further to the left it would of been a head on impact with a pole at about 30-40, very easily could of broke my neck etc.

thanks for the well wishes everyone. hoping by the time the pistol gets back from primary I can shoot secondary (left) handed sure glad I got that comp now :)

I shot left-handed for the very first time in my life last week. I am getting shoulder surgery on Thursday this week on my right shoulder, so I was curious to see if I could shoot left-handed if I had to. I put them all in the pie plate at 10 yards (surprisingly) and found it was still fun to shoot left-handed. Right handed I can put them cloverleafed together, but I won't be doing that with my right hand for a month or so after surgery.

First, are you giving up on the motorcycles - or at least riding them out there where the cars/trucks and drivers that don't seem to see motorcycles?

Second, why can't you put an RMR on a P01?  I had a DP Pro cut made on my wife's CZ 75 Compact and installed the DP Pro when we got it back from Primary Machine.  Works great, so far.  Been thinking about changing out that battery, it's been a year now.

I did ger an RMR put on my P07 (Primary Machine again) and I'll bet you'll really like yours once you can get it to the range.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

I'm not sure to be honest, I emailed primary and they said it was too short.

not giving up on the bikes, but probably won't be commuting m-f and using it as primary transportation, weekend rides and track days are the future.

Not sure about length of the RMR vs. the DP Pro.  Maybe that's the issue.

Don't have a picture from the top either, just the side.  The DP Pro add on back up rear sight does stick out past the back of the slide but it's not an issue for a DA/SA pistol.  Maybe the RMR is too long???

These sadly are not my cz's but RMR seems to fit just fine

You can’t mill a 75 series slide for an RMR unless you use the Trijicon 1911 adaptor plate. Mounting the optic directly to the slide like with any other optic won’t work as the mounting screw locations are wider than the slide.

Anything else will fit. RMR is the only thing that won't without a plate.

Viper and DP Pro do look a little silly because they're so wide, but they will work.

Welcome to the 4m. Sorry to hear about the mc accident.....OTOH, if 'all' you hurt was a hand (and, of course, the bike) you are indeed lucky (not to diminish the severity of the hand injury or the pain). Been there, done that, but unfortunately it was a bit more serious. At least the pain meds are helping you...and, no, I did not give up riding. Hey, you learn from these things (which are hopefully never permanently debilitating) and improve from there (even though it was the other guys "fault" as far as insurance was concerned, I never assume that 'there's nothing I could have done' to prevent it). Rickytick made a good point, and one that I never forget....motorcycles never win these sorts of things. Hopefully the bike is repairable.....or, if not...heck, you get to go out and buy something else!
Heal quickly, and enjoy your CZ!

That's what I think when I look at it, too.  Silly.  But she's happy with it and that's what counts.

Besides, anything that shoots/works that well, why does it matter what it looks like?
