Finding that "perfect" concealed carry holster is almost a never ending quest for individuals who carry concealed. Most people go through a series of holsters in a trial and error process trying to find the perfect combination of comfort and concealment.

In most cases, handgun owners end up with the proverbial "box of holsters" that end up sitting around without being used.

Don Hume 001 Front Pocket Holster

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.
