Default First handgun, finally!

I just bought my first handgun, a CZ-82. I had to turn to Gunbroker, as I couldn't source one of these locally. Now, the waiting game.

I ended up with the CZ-82 after initially spotting one in the online used invetoryof a local gun shop, but it was gone before I could get down there. The research I did pushed me deeper and deeper into reading about this particular handgun, and the more I read, the more I liked it. Seems like all of CZ's weapons are built like brick houses and as durable as a tank. I'm more of a durability-over-flash person. It feels odd for a child of the 80s to be so enamored with a ComBloc weapon, though.

Does anyone have any holster suggestions for this weapon, both for open-carry situations, and concealed? Does anyone have personal experience carrying this in a shoulder holster? CZ-USA has a shoulder holster listed in their online store, but the low-low price feels like a "you get what you pay for" situation, though with CZ's rep, maybe that's not true here.

Looks like my wife was right a couple years ago when I bought my 10/22..."We're going to end up with an arsenal in the house, aren't we?" Oops.

I took possession of my CZ82 on Monday. Brought it out to the pit that evening. Man, such a smooth firing weapon. Trigger pull is nice, recoil is manageable, and the ergonomics are great. A little on the heavy side, but it actually feels lighter than the AMT Backup I had along with me for a test fire (it belongs to a family member).

The wife can't get a proper grip on the CZ82, so she'll have to end up with something smaller. She actually like the AMT Backup, which I found to be AWFUL. Super heavy, hard edges, and a complete lack of safety features. She had two jams in 25 rounds. 0 jams in my CZ82.

Now I just have to learn how to shoot accurately. I was pulling most of my shots low and left.

Pictures soon, when I can find the time to take and load them.

That's for me is the hardest part of the CZ's getting used to there fixed sights. It took awhile for me to get good with my CZ-52. But I do mostly shoot surplus ammo with it. I found it works good to practice holding the gun looking in a mirror. I noticed I like to slant the gun down.
