Salam every1,
after checking the market recently, i cudnt find a holster to my liking and i read somewhere in one of the threads here that some members order holsters online,
Now i hv a few questions in that regard,

How do u knw which size fits ur gun i.e With without rails and stuff shud matter, so how do i get arund that problem if the handgun isnt listed

i checked Galco Holsters and wanted to order a Kydex IWB but i cudnt Find CZ999 or Tangolio in the listed weapons, the closest things were Sig 226 or cz 75 compact, now i wud hv gone with that but these holsters are made to fit very snuggly.
So am i being too fussy or getting the closest thing normally works.
i had the same issue @ UBG and Comp-tac websites

Also id appreciate input on websites that hv been used to order such things.

P.S i didnt really knw where else to post this

any input will be appreciated

Regards

Opticsplanet is tried by some of the most senior members here, yet not personally by me.

Best of luck. :)

As usual with these sites - not because of them, but our outdated/predated system of cash transfer/receipt cum customs methods.

We're a haven in all other terms, yet for innocent accessories, a banned domain. :(

+1 Ak, optics planet is one of the best, have tried it personally, plus blade tech is also very good, specially with holsters that allow you to carry your weapon with lights.

however i still hv the issue of not being able to find exact matches for the handguns i own , tangolio compact and the cz999, shud i just go with Sig 226 and cz 75 as bench marks?

Not quite sure. The Tanfoglio, if it's one of the newer ones, and polymer, I think is a bit more "bulk" than original CZ-75, so check it out first. Furthermore, does it have rails?

As for the CZ-999, I can give you an outclass solution, yet in Fobus. This holster fits 3 guns perfectly, the CZ-999, PT 145 and PT99. We've tried them all with this one. In fact 12G bro carries his CZ-999 in same holster, and I've played around with it every time we were together. Available at Opticsplanets, the first picture for specifications of model number, type, etc:

The packing:

The backside:

Yet plz note, you can't be sure that all holsters for above guns would fit your CZ. This one just does perfectly, amazingly, a tailor made thing, with adjustable retention levels. :)

Best of luck. Let me know of progress. Regards. :)

AK bhai ty for ur input,
the kinda holster i had in mind is something like this
http://www.comp-tac.com/product_info.php?products_id=95

ive made the rookie mistake of buying weapons which are too large to be carried concealed OWB unless i decide on wearing a trench coat or something all year round,
my half brained thought process kinda went like oh this cool looking Cz999 is much smaller than the baretta at home, shud be muuuuch easier to carry, failing that , this viper compact seems to be much smaller than the Cz , this definitly shud be easier to carry :( and all SC8000 might hv been a better option but i just didnt like the looks.
so the option is to get a good Holster like the one above that distributes the weight of the weapon over a larger area and does a decent job of concealing it at the same time, sadly local availability is extremely limited.

the Fobus holster is most likely this one

im also trying to get a saddler that i knw to make one for me , its kind of a struggle :P
lets see how things turn out

I want to buy a gun holster online from optics planet but what If it doesn't get delivered to me.
The only reason I am scared is because of the political instability in the country.
I guess holster doesn't harm anyone, I am just over cautious.*
Please tell me if anyone at pakguns had an order placed from here and got delivered it successfully to their doorstep.*
I am thinking of using USPS Priority Mail International*cause it is cost effective. Please advice which shipping method will be appropriate ...
and will it get delivered to my doorstep?

Dont worry bro holster you are looking for has nothing to do with politics. Just place the order with opticsplanet, I purchased more than half a dozen from them + other stuff. USPS will be handled by Pakistan Post Office (their service TNT) in some cases they make a call/send a letter to the consignee for custom clearances (actually for Chai Paani) for that you will have to go to GPO for custom clearance & shipment delivery. Otherwise they have to deliver goods at your door step like all other courier services do.
