I am always testing and trying out new holsters for both my own needs and for other people. If you have read any of this blog, you may have noticed that I have a fascination with pocket holsters. For me, they are an ideal way to carry concealed. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out a Don Hume front pocket holster (model 001).
I have to say that I was impressed with the performace for the price. I grabbed one for my Ruger LCP and have been carrying it almost everyday for the last 3 weeks. For the money involved (I paid $31.00 for mine from a company called Gunner's Alley), I was pleasantly surprised. Normally, pocket holsters tend to offer a great concept, but rarely do they actually deliver.
The 001 does a nice job of keeping the holster upright in the pocket as well as breaking up the outline. Even though I wear jeans quite a bit, I couldn't detect any printing issues. I even asked my wife (who has eyes like a hawk), but she couldn't accurately tell when I was using the holster for pocket carry.
The one aspect that I wasn't all that keen on involves the hook shaped release device. While that device does work, I really prefer to use a thumb push type of set-up. Aside from that small issue, I was impressed.
