Photo Of The Day: TFB’s James Reeves recently wrote an article about the CZ Shadow 2 Compact, and I have to say that the Czech really know how to tease me and most likely the majority of the gun community to make another purchase. The new pistol is certainly worth a POTD, and I can’t wait to try it out at the earliest possible opportunity.

The caliber is 9×19mm with a magazine capacity of 15 rounds, and it’s optics-ready.

Here’s the caption from CZ to go with the feature image:

The new CZ Shadow 2 Compact fills the gap between the standard CZ Shadow 2 and compact variants of the good old CZ 75. Per standard, it comes equipped with OR cut allowing you to mount your favorite red dot on top!

Would you use the new Shadow 2 Compact for EDC or competition, or both? Which red dot would you choose? Let us know below, I’m curious about your answers.

    How does it feel?Did it feel clumsy?

      @predrag djuric I haven't held one but I would assume it to be similar to the 75 compact or P01. The thin grips make a big difference over the rubber ones the 75 and P01 get.

    I don't see the purpose of this. I love CZ but this is pointless.
