    Anyone know of Don Hume's reputation in the holster world? I am specifically looking at a shoulder rig. Thanks.

    I have a couple of his holsters and a belt and I've been very very happy. The workmanship is really nice and I've never had any problems ordering or getting stuff in a reasonable time frame.

    I have 2 holsters for a Sig239, no experience with the shoulder holsters.

    Several of my cop friends buy his stuff.

    Got two Hume holsters. One is an IWB, the other a belt slide. Both are for a Ruger SP 101 revolver.
    Both are great quality and very reasonably priced.

    I have several of them find them to be of good quality and fairly priced overall well made. My only complain is they are a little "thick".

    I ditto the remarks made in the previous post. Mine is well made, looks very nice, but doubles the thickness of my LCP. I'm just glad it was very thin to start with.

    I have 2 Don Humes. 1 owb and 1 iwb. Both are great so I would venture to guess shoulder rig is good to go as well.

    Caveat: I have not used his shoulder holsters and can only speak for the belt holsters.

    Don Hume makes good quaility holsters that last a long time. They are, IMHO, a fair deal for the budget minded shooter. Ross Leather also makes good quality fairly priced holsters, lined with suede.

    I have a Don Hume 715 IWB style holster for every pistol that I own. They are production line holsters, but the leather they use and their stitching/finishing are top notch. I recommend them fully. I have used them for years and I have never had a problem.

    I had a shoulder rig from Don Hume but, just like any other shoulder rig, I'm barrel chested and can't reach the pistol with my strong hand so I returned it. It was definitely well made holster, I had no problem with the quality. I have several other Don Hume holsters and, I am happy with all of them. You can't go wrong with Don Hume's quality and pricing.

    Sorry, not a shoulder holster, but I use this OWB for my CZ 75. The separated belt loop is the slickest thing and really makes for a much more comfortable holster as the belt takes a straight path instead of bending.

    I agree Don Hume makes a good product at a very fair price. I have several of their holsters and like them. I also like DeSantis Holsters. Their prices are a little higher on some products but they also make high quality products. I have a Speed Scabbard holster for several of my revolvers. I'm only mentioning DeSantis because a friend has one of their shoulder rigs for his 1911 that he says he will never part with.

    I have been using Don Hume holsters for years and they make one of the best production holsters around, IMHO. Here is my Ruger SP-101 in a 721 OT.
    I would venture to say that their shoulder holsters would be of the same quality.

    Upside-down....

    I think he was a pioneer in the "upside-down" shoulder holster, but I've only seen them made for revolvers. Does anyone know if they can be made for semi-autos?

    I really like his holsters but I found his belt to be too thin, I just threw one of his gunbelts into the "donate" bag last night after testing the leather for thickness and firmness. I bought it years ago and never used it, just happened to find it last night in the back of the drawer and it didn't pass muster.

    Don Hume Holster

    I was in the same spot you were a few months ago. I bought two holsters. IWB - P2000 HK and one OWB - P229 Sig. I was lucky in that both holsters fit the other firearm. Bought an Aker belt to go with it ($36). I wanted a decent quality rig with out paying a high price.

    I agree with the others. It is a quality holster for the price and I am happy with the purchase.

    I've got Hume clip on IWBs for my Glock 19, S&W 3" Model 65, and M1911s. I have absolutely no complaints about design or quality. They're reasonably priced too.

    In his recent book on concealed carry, Massad Ayoob cites their clip on IWB as one of the few clip ons that he trusts.

    I don't have any experience with their shoulder holsters, but if their IWBs are any indication, I wouldn't worry about general quality.

    I have an IWB clip-on one for my Taurus 24/7, and it has held up well to daily carry and plenty of range exercises over the past 18 months. I'd buy one again.

    I have a IWB for my Kahr CW9 and couldn't be happier for the price.
