I really like mine as it points well and fits my hand well. It is like a custom fitted pistol for me.Seems many others feel the same who have shot one. Mine is so good I am thiinking about reducing my owned pistols and getting a 40 cal also.

Go, I'll go with your assessment. CZ is a quality manufacturer. Bersa is another that is vastly under rated. I really don't have a lot of confidence in what gun writers put out there. There are too many freebies and too much advertising revenue out there for them to be totally truthful. I have a good friend who's father was a writer and got the pleasure of going on a gun magazine hunt along with some writers and gun company reps. ( I was a friend of a friend and a last minute replacement) They have a cozy relationship.

I ignored the many reviews ang got my 2 favorite, and most reliable, CC sidearms. Both have been to the range and both are worthy of the highest rating possible ... as CC sidearms.

Neither are heirloom quality nor will they ever see more than 20k rounds over the next 20-30 years.

I got more accurate & usable info on this site, from actual users, and their experiences with the makers, than all of the Internet review sites I had found.

Just for fun I decided to make my own summer special. Leather was $5 bucks from Tandy Leather here. That should make several holsters actually. Snaps were $8 bucks from Michaels. Enough for 10 holsters. Thread and needle was $2 from Harbor Freight. I already had a box cutter and some contact glue, black shoe dye and polish. We will see how I do.

That is very cool, I have thought about making a holster myself, just to try it. Did you use any specific patterns or just kind of free style it?
