    Fobus Roto Holster Question

    Got a Fobus E2 Roto holster yesterday for the PT99. I have a Uncle Mikes Deluxe Duty belt and the Fobus holster is rather loose.

    It has about 0.2 inches of space inside the belt loop in all directions.

    So when drawing the pistol its quite sloppy.

    Any ideas on how to tighten this up ? I thought about putting some plastic backing in then drilling some holes and looping lots of cotton though the holster and belt to permenantly attach it in place.

    Eh. I'd get rid of that thing or make sure that the paddle isn't going to rotate, I had the screw let go and dump my Para P16 on the floor of the mall...

    Once I get the cant right I will get some strong LockTight for the hex bolt to ensure it doesnt move.

    Not many holsters available for PT99 (especially the new one with the Tac Rail). Pretty much limited to buying holsters for Beretta Vertec.

    Only going to be shooting production class and not very often so a $300 leather one would be wasted.

    Fobus cost me $30US and my Blackhawk CQC for my 1911 was $26US. I much prefer the CQC holster.

    To the OP, I would say get a better holster. But I've got one of those things. For a Glock. Never even worn it (I DID used to wear the standard Fobus paddles a lot though, also for Glocks....). They actually worked okay for what they were, and were cheap. They now reside in "that" drawer.

    JD, thanks for the heads up. If I ever DO wear it, I'll be double sure to keep an eye on it!
    Regards, T Bone.

    The roto-paddle Holster is thicker than the regular fobus paddle holster, and it feels funky because of it.

    Save the Fobus for the range.
    Try Desantis or Bianchi for a decent concealment holster.
