The CZ Shooting Team is indeed an international squad which thanks to the superb properties of CZ guns attracts the best shooters from all over the world. The latest asset…. The latest asset to join the team is Eric Grauffel, a living legend from France and many-time world champion who has demonstrated his great talent in three IPSC divisions.
It was my dad who introduced me to them, when I was little. When he was in the army, he became a national champion and then with some of his friends he established a shooting club. I think it was in and he ended up presiding over it for about 10 years. I must have been about six, so I had access to guns and ammunition from an early age.
Exclusively since I was about 15, so that is around 24 years now. My best success? I think it is something that nobody else has repeated yet and I think it will take a while before anyone does. Shooting, I expect. I need to keep shooting, I am a competitor so I need to shoot and compete. But the main goal for me is to keep taking part in main events and shoot to be the best in the world.
I am still very competitive. I will try Production, Standard as well as Open, a last-minute call is also an option. We will see what is best. I like the idea of the last-minute decision, it kind of keeps things spicy. Well, January 1 st — I am just starting with them.
We are going to work on a mutual project, we have in mind a kind of a shooting academy. Also, I will be involved in the development of a new gun for the Standard and Open divisions. Working with such a renowned company is a great challenge for me, as is becoming a part of such a great team and participating in several projects all at the same time.
That is a pretty big task but at the same time very exciting. I would pick all of them, a different one for each division — I like this idea. I have my own shop and my own team of people. We like to develop new models and I think we are very good at it. We like to test and actually modify whatever we can. So, we cut things down, do a bit of upgrading here and there or find other solutions.
We improve equipment, materials and put the resulting model into production. For me it is important that other people can buy whatever I use.
The models are not specific models made for specific shooters. They are customized but still accessible to everyone. Do you already own a CZ gun or are you still waiting for your first one? I am still waiting. We started sorting out the necessary permits and documentation only at the start of January so it will take a while. What has led you to collaborate with CZ? Where did it all begin? In a certain sense, it is only just starting now. I have always had a very good relationship with the shooters from the CZ Shooting Team, we are friends.
We meet at competitions all the time, some of them I have known since they were little nippers. And then I came up with the new project of building a shooting academy.
Jakub heard about it and in the end, we thought that it would be a great opportunity to create something bigger than just a training centre. Naturally, I expect that we will all give our best to succeed. So, we all have to pull together. My job is to make sure we make good guns, to pick the right bits to modify so as to get the best result possible.
But we must also work on the new academy which will be a great marketing tool. We will be able to make sport shooting accessible to the wider public and at the same time promote this brilliant sport. I hope we will be able to get best team of instructors in Europe as well. All that will help us promote the brand and the sport too. What I mean is that it is not just a business venture, it is much more than that. In what aspect do you think CZ pistols are better than the competition?
They are all different. We cannot say that the gun I used today is better than another one. It is as if you compared Michael Schumacher who was with Mercedes and then he went over to Ferrari. Success is a combination of a driver and his equipment, which plays a big part too. When we are using CZ guns, we know we are at the top of the world. We are in the lead and losing is basically not an option.
So, we have a great combination of the end shooter and the equipment he or she has available. This makes for a win-win situation. And when we have great guns and great shooters, we have to find out which gun is best for each shooter. Personally, I prefer new models. As I have already mentioned — unfortunately, I am getting on a bit in this line of work, so I need a few tricks to stay sharp.
How did you get into guns and sport shooting? When did you take up IPSC shooting? And what are your immediate goals in IPSC shooting? How and when did you get into CZ guns? What do you expect from this collaboration? Back to posts.
