Looking to purchase a CZ-82 pistol with my 03 FFL. Does anyone utilize this pistol as a CCW. Any input would be welcomed.
AIM Silver Bear 9x18 94grn HP Silver Bear 9x18 94grn HPI'd have no problem carrying one for a defensive weapon. Not sure what kind of availability there is for Makarov defensive ammo. If you can find a reliable HP round that it will feed consistently it should give you a little better punch than .380. Might check out Silver Bear ammo.
Thanks for directing me to the CZ forum. I'm sure to get all the info and opinions I need on obtaining a new CZ-82:smile:I carried a CZ83 (w/PT Nites) in .380 (Hydra-Shocks) then a CZ83 in 9mm MAK (Hornady XTPs) before the RAMI was developed.
One particular dark night in Idaho. We had a bunch of family show up, and I gave up my bed in favor of sleeping in the 5th wheel that was located in the work shop lot some 1/4 mile away.
I took my dog and my CZ83 in .380.
Was awoken at nearly 3 AM by some vehicles. They were Deputies in search of an escaped prisoner.
I'm sure that the See-Zed and 13 rounds of JHP aboard (with a spare mag from my pocket ) would have sufficed if I had to shoot that night, or any night.
What type of holster do you use for IWB carry? That is the way I will mosy likely carry mine.I carry one now, IWB. Completely reliable. Very accurate. Points like a finger. Ammo is easier to find than .380.
My wife bought it for me as a present, and I just used it as a range gun till I sold my other pistols. Now it's my daily.
Even as I buy other primary sidearms again, I'm sure it will stay in the rotation.
The only minus is having to thumb the hammer down to carry it DA/SA.
Right now I'm using a Desbian's IWB. I believe you can find Rhome listed here. If not, I'll try to look him up for you.What type of holster do you use for IWB carry? That is the way I will mosy likely carry mine.

Oh yeah....what John said!They are fantastic pistols for the money! More potent than a .380 and hold plenty of ammo that's still available at a decnt price. I have 2 on order! :smile:
If you need a holster call Eric at HBE Specialty LW's. He's a CZ fanatic and his Pro TL is just the ticket for this model.
You won't regret buying it!
