    Re: Fobus Holster

    Funny you should ask. I just bought one last week for my CZ 75 and used it at the range Saturday.
    I think it's usefulness depends on what you're going to use it for. Great for Range use, possibly good for IDPA (I'll let you know how I liked it for that next month) but probably not so good for everyday CC.

    When I got mine it was SO tight I thought I'd have to cut my CZ out of it. I looked online and found a few fixes, so it seems just about right for IDPA now, but I'll need more practice. While reholstering, I DROPPED my CZ on the concrete

    I have also read they are prone to breaking easily at the paddle attachment, hence not so great for daily duty, but I have yet to test that.

    Hope that helped.

    From what I have read on here, if you are looking for something similar to the Fobus, check out Blackhawks. Depending on the model you want it for, you may have to find the Blackhawk for another firearm that will accomodate the Taurus, but Blackhawk CQC have my vote !

    I don´t think they cut it for ccw. I used one for open carry when closing my bar back in the day before I had a ccw. I also used one to qualify against the advisement of the instructor who said hey have a tendency to come off with your gun draw, but I never had an issue.

    Re: Fobus Holster

    I carry my PT145 in one all day every day. I also use it in IDPA competition. I like it more than any holster I've ever used, and over the years I've used a lot of different ones.
    It's very comfortable once you get used to it, it holds the pistol securely and the draw is smooth and easy, though it takes some practice to get it that way.
    It's easy to put on and take off and there is NO tendency for it to come off with the draw.
    The only drawback to it is that the plastic is hard on the finish of the slide.

    Arko, have you ever posted pics of that CZ 75? i saw one in a recent issue of guns and ammo. I think it was the CZ 75B stainless. That was a beautiful gun! Would love to see pics of yours if you got them

    Red,
    No, I don't believe I have posted pics. Mine is the BD model, with the standard black finish. The stainless is gorgeous, but the black to me looks bad arse, and if it ever gets torn up, I have a shop here in town that specializes in CZ and is doing a bunch of cool finishes for them.

    Oh, back to the topic: I've read elsewhere that at some training schools they don't allow them, and demonstrate breaking the paddle off your waist, disarming you. They seem pretty solidly riveted to me though, so who knows.

    I carry daily in a Crossbreed, and am just going to use the Fobus for range/IDPA.

    I have Two, one for my Glock 23 and the other for my 1911, both are the fixed angle and can be used as an outside belt or paddle. I like them because they don't slide around my belt and are great for range use. I don't like them for CCW because they don't hold the weapon tight enough to the body. Even under a thick pullover they will print.

    If your looking for a Fobus for the PT line, the SP11 is the reccomended fit. TAURUS MILLENIUM PT 145, PT 745 & PRO - COMPACT HOLSTER SP11B

    However, the SP11 line from Fobus now has many varieties of holsters. From remembering when I ordered mine for the Pro PT111, the link below does not mention Taurus at all, but the fit is for many various guns of the same dimensions.
