What a difference the right holster makes!

    The land of the Alamo!
    I've had a Ruger SP-101 for a while. (And love it!) I alternate it in carrying with another piece that I have a nice holster for. However, I haven't had a proper holster for the SP-101 until just recently. (It's been my experience that holsters for the 2" barrel models are plentiful, but for the 3" they are considerably harder to find.) I just now got a Don Hume IWB holster that is a dream to carry! How nice it is to have a quality holster that not only feels nice to the touch, but also is one that is snugly molded around the shape of the gun! Absolutely excellent! :D

    Don Hume makes good stuff - have one of theirs for my 3" GP-100. IMO, a quality holster is just as important as a quality gun for carry - it's worth spending $60+ for a good one.

    Completely agree. Any of the Milt Sparks VM2's I have used (Sig P228, Sig P239, HK P2000) or Watch Six's (Colt Defender, Sig P220) are more comfortable than the itty-bitty Kahr PM9 I carry now in a High Noon Bare Asset. The Bare Asset isn't a terrible holster, by any stretch, and it was only $25 so what do you expect...

    But the fact a much larger gun carries more comfortably in a better holster kinda blew my mind.

    I need to order a VM2 for my little Kahr.

    And for the revolver fans: my 4" N-Frame's carry more comfortably in my Milt Sparks PMK than any of the above!!

    I picked up a Don Hume holster off e-bay for my PM-9. IMO the Don Hume is a good product for the money, but it isn't a Milt Sparks. (or any number of better holsters). I wore it around the house, and forgot I had it on. I have the IWB clip. I don't carry full time so the Hume was a good buy for me.
    I'm not sure you can get a VM-2 for the Kahr. I'm going to splurge on a HBE.
