High Noon Down Under got me "hooked"

You know why I like High Noon Holsters? They work right the first time. No stretching, no overnight fitting, no plastic baggie trick; they fit right when they show up in that plain brown box delivered by my favorite guy in the whole wide world - the UPS driver. :)
Today my favorite guy came by again, and guess what he brought today?

Yup, the newest sidearm in the stable has a brand new skin. This is a Down Under cowhide inside the waistband holster, my favorite style of carry for Arizona concealment, for the Beretta PX4 Storm, a sidearm I am taming to my will.:cool: Among other features I like about this rig is the custom molding that seems to "snap in" when the sidearm is holstered. I also like the stitched in and molded sight track to help align and protect the sights while drawing and re- holstering. The holster also has that traditional High Noon thick medieval armor leather sweat shield, a HUGE plus when carrying in a hot environment. It's a 1/4 inch thick! No worries about rust with this baby on guard!

This is different from my other Down Under, because as you will remember that rig has the dual strap set up.

On this High Noon rig I asked for the J hook for quick on/off use. You can see it's tough and no nonsense - it holds well while holstering and drawing, but is removed easily when needed.

Wearing it as is comfortable as the day is long, just like my other High Noon holsters. The rig rides right up next to me, and when I don't have the shirt behind it to show it off, it hides like a ghost in the night. Couple this with my favorite High Noon Rock Steady gun belt, and I am in hog heaven! Scratch that - too much mud in hog heaven; we'll say I am in holster heaven. ;)

Looks like there's a Storm...at High Noon...:cool:

Thanks for the good review.

How long did it take you to get it from the time that you ordered it?

A few weeks, but I was lucky - they are running full blast over at High Noon. Apparently the recent media reported murders have really spiked the market for top quality concealed carry holsters!

Thanks for the review. I'm likely moving to a county where I stand a better chance to get a ccw so iwb are on my mind. I'm not trying to start any war here but do you know how these feel vs the crossbreed super tucks? I seem to see lots of positive reviews for those.

I have never tried the Crossbreed holsters, sorry. I have used more than one High Noon and am sold on their quality, I can say that. ;)

Thanks. I went out to their website. Pretty impressive in what they do.

Do you have any opinions on the cow vs horse hide holsters they make?

Never used horsehide, but I know one guy who does, and he thinks they are great. Thinner and a little tougher than cowhide, IIRC.
