Paratroopers are satisfied with new pistols

Paratroopers of the 4th Rapid Deployment Brigade practiced life fires from new Phantom pistols at the Vrsovice Range on 25 April 2012.

“Every soldier must know shooting,“ Warrant Officer 2nd Class Vratislav Louda, shooting instructor, opened life fires training by this clear statement.

Soldiers replied to an enemy short distance gunshots, were engaged in built-up areas, or they search hostages in buildings. They solve complicated combat situations in a minimum time limit, the same way, as on foreign operations.

Construction of the CZ 75 SP-01 PHANTOM 9 mm Luger pistol is based on older CZ 75 model. High life-time, accuracy, reliability even in tough conditions - these are the assets of this gun. The magazine capacity is increased to 18 cartridges, but also standard magazines from CZ 75 can be used. The pistol body is lightened which increases its stability during shooting quick shots.

“It is pleasure to shoot with this pistol. It is light, easily grasped and these are really the most important advantages of short guns in general,“ said Warrant Officer 1st Class Milos Prasil, Command Sergeant Major of the 4th Rapid Deployment Brigade, one of the most experienced soldiers of the unit.

The personnel of the 4th Rapid Deployment Brigade is fully equipped with the pistol from this January. Soldiers are satisfied with it, which is confirmed by results achieved.
