Hi all! I'm a new member but a longtime reader of The Box O’ Truth. As a CZ-52 owner I thought I might make a suggestion. In the The Box O’ Truth Categories I noticed that the 7.62x25 is only listed once. That was in The Box O’ Truth #47 – Laminated Bullet Proof Glass – Pistols. It is also featured blasting through a helmet in The Box O’ Truth #29 – The Helmets O’ Truth. I thought that maybe the Categories could be updated so folks could find it easier and see that great old Cold War round in action.

Welcome to the site, Bad Dragon.

What do you do with the CZ? Target? Carry? Safe queen?
Thanks applesmasher. My CZ52s are strictly range/target guns. I have one in 7.62x25 and one in 9mm Luger. Both have been modified by Novak Sights, who custom installed their LoMount White Dots. They also have new barrels (threaded with a muzzle brake on the 9. Overkill I know.), hardened steel firing pins & rollers, new recoil springs and a new extractor for the 9mm conversion. Some would say "that's a waste on some old mil-surp pistols" and maybe it is but I love shooting my 52s. They could be used for SD/HD in an emergency. I do have some Appalachian Ammo Emancipator 7.62x25 90gn XTP-HPs & Prvi Partizan 7.62x25 85gn JHPs among others which would very effective but I worry about over penetration with any of the 7.62x25 rounds. I have newer safer weapons for SD/HD. As far as safe queens I don't really believe in them. If they never get shot then its time to move on. I don't do collectibles. I used to - bad habit.

Again, Thanks for the welcome and have a Happy New Year!
