    Who makes a custom shoulder holster?
    I was thinking of you finding someone in your area that works leather, like a saddle maker , etc that could make the holster you want . That way you get exactly what you’re needing.

    Congrats on the new blaster by the way.

    I still have the S&W 1006 my wife bought me as a gift in the late 80's. Recently I picked up a new Colt Delta Elite (so called gen II due to changes) also in 10mm. This has been one of my favorite cartridges for years!

    I used a Galco Miami Classic for years. I carried my M9 in one while I was in the Gulf. I ran a 20 round (93R) mag in the gun and two 15s in the pouch. I also ran a Alessi double shoulder holster with two Detonics Combat Masters.....but that's another story. Ive been told the John Rourke rig was a joke, IDK maybe it was; but it worked for me when I was working EP assignments in the neighborhoods of Baltimore City best viewed in the HBO series, "The Wire".

    This gun will be more than a tool, its also a fun toy; but a toy I can use in real situations. Now it needs to be run hard to break it in and find its potentials. I don't see me moving to a sail boat any time soon, or even buying a Testarosa; but I think I may have a white linen suit.

    It wont replace my RMRd Glocks, or even my 1911s, still there are times I can see it being useful.

    Sid Woodcock told me almost 40 years ago that he carried two 1911s back in the day because of reliability issues, and that the Detonics was his attempt at a relatively light and absolutely reliable .45.

    Ironically mine, #D2400, choked on ball ammo but was absolutely reliable with the hollowpoints of that time. And the hotter the load, the tighter it shot. It was a 2" gun at 25 yards, sometimes even better. But hot loads tended to peen the edges of the disconnector cut, probably from the hammer bouncing as the slide recoiled.
    It was too heavy and finicky, so I let it go. But I would not feel outgunned with a pair of them, and certainly not in 1979.

    I got to shoot it today. It was only one mag of S&B 180gr FMJ. I was pleasantly surprised. Recoil wasn't bad; but you knew it wasn't a 9mm. There was none of the typical 40SW "flip". You did need to keep a firm grip; during a rapid fire string of maybe 5 rounds I lost a firm grip and noticed the recoil "punch" for my lack of maintaining full control. I know 14 rounds is hardly a workout worthy of an evaluation, so this is at best a "first impression" view.

    The gun is heavy, not too heavy; but heavy by Glock standards. Obviously weight helps with the recoil management. It does feel comfortable in my hands. One thing I did note was the slide has limited grip area because of the CZ design (slide inside the frame). Its not hard to run the slide; but its "harder" than say a Glock. Obviously cocking the hammer first, makes it easier.

    It only comes with one mag, which is disappointing. Luckily I have 3 more coming. Ive also got Corbon HP ammo enroute.

    I purchased a Miami Classic shoulder rig from a dealer at half price because it hadn't sold in over 3 years; the down side is the holster was for a Springfield XD. It sorta fits, actually a little loose but snaps in securely. My plan is to find a better fitting model, then buy only the holster, as the mag pouch works and of course the harness is interchangeable.

    All in all, Im impressed. Im not sure itll be my everyday daily carry; but Im thinking itll be carried more than I originally expected.

    More once I give it a full workout.

    Get several of the good clamps for gluing wood, seran wrap the gun, soak the holster, clamp it in tight. Once it’s formed add a few stitches or Chicago screws in the key spots.

    Glad the new toy is fun at least.

    She just likes it there, in its original box, with the hippo. I'm ambivalent about this Bill Clinton memorabilia in my bedroom.

    If it keeps her happy, then by all means let it be!

    Holy thread resurrection !!!

    Got the hankering again for a bren ten. Nope, not doing that with magazines unavailable! But as noted before EAA has a variety of pseudo brens in 10mm. A little looking around and this was delivered to my local dealer. By the time it got here 5 spare mags and a couple hundred rounds of practice ammo were already delivered. Got it to the range and it shoots like a dream. MUCH heavier than my 19x with rmr and light, but still a fun shooter. Might take the place of grand dads 1911 as my BBQ gun. Pic is stock photo of one in 9mm, everything is identical except in 10mm.

    Oh on holsters the CZ P-09 holsters fit great in both leather and even the Hogue kydex with the retention lever

    Elite Stock II?

    Couldn't be sure if that was a decocker or safety until I read the generic owner's manual--looks like a safety, and in conjunction with the trigger-controlled firing pin safety and proper technique allows safe decocking for hammer-down carry.

    DA/SA or SA cocked and locked. VERY comfortable in the hand. Examples (admittedly in 9mm and .40) that use the same frame slide etc have upwards of 45K rounds without issue in competition shoots (several pro shooters discuss them on the "Tubes")

    interesting note you can press check the gun with the safety still engaged.
