This is my first post and I'm pretty new. I have a question about the Fobus Roto system. What exactly is it? It looks to me like the holster for the weapon is one component, and how it attaches to your body is another component. So that you can use the same holster with either a paddle attachment, or a shoulder holster, or tactical thigh rig, etc...

Is that correct?

And if so, how does it work if you want to draw with your right hand from both your right side and also from the small of your back. Wouldn't you need a normal right handed holster for your thing, but a separate left-handed holster for the small of your back so that the butt of the gun faces to your right?

If I am not mistaken the Fobus Roto system is simply a paddle type holster where you can rotate the paddle to different positions. It is not a quick change action but more one where you can set it up the way you want to wear it....but still only get either right hand or left hand draw and not interchangable with other options such as a shoulder hoslter.

Check out their website for more info....

Thanks:)
I have checked out their site and I must say, it's not all that informative. THere is a specific part about "roto-systems" where the list a shoulder rig and a tactical rig, so I don't think it's just the belt or paddle attachment. But I can't find any more info than that.

I have heard numerous people say that the Fobus holsters are not very durable - apparently, you can rip the material off the rivots very easily. I think there is better stuff out there.

There is a video somewhere showing one being torn off rather easily. I have it locally, but I'm sure someone has a link on the net somewhere.

Thanks for all the info guys:) I knew this was the right place to go. I think I'll check out blade-tech.

Unfortunatly, Blackhawk does not make the Carbon Fiber CQC for the Walther

The SERPA would be nice for the P99

While I like and own other holsters, for the price and quality I have no problems with the Fobus. No I am not an LEO so my needs are different. When I carry CCW I am the only one who knows that I am packing. While I know that anything can happen, I don't anticipate myself getting into a situation were someone could tear my pistol from the holster by popping some rivets. Like I said, for my needs I like the Fobus just fine. But I really do like the Blade-tech.

I have the Comp-Tac C-Tac and the Settable cant. The Settable is my favorite Kydex model.

Love the paddle and the belt attachment. Highly concealable and comfortable

I have the WA99RLP (roto, leftie, paddle) and like it a lot - of course I just use it at the range because I don't have CCW and it's a little big IMO to do CCW with even if I did have it. For the price it works just fine.

I have one and it is very good for the price. The roto half lets you adjust the cant. The roto model sticks out a little more than the fixed.

i bought a fobus roto paddle online and immeadiately sent it back for a regular fobus paddle oncei received it and put it on.

the roto system puts the pistol so far from your body it is worthless for CCW carry unless you dress like a flasher with a trenchcoat. even the regular paddle model is not the greatest for CCW.

i do use fobus holsters for USPSA shooting.
