The pistol was used as a personal sidearm by officers of the SNB [Sbor Narodni Bezpecnosti, or National Security Corps], members of CSD [Ceskoslovenske Statni Drahy, or Czechoslovakian State Railways] security, and was also used for many years by members of the Transportation Service Police [a division of Czechoslovakia Public Security (VB), the uniformed branch of police], who had the option of using a personal sidearm on duty, and who frequently preferred the CZ vz. 45.
