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.

CCW Holsters from Don Hume Leathergoods

Don Hume Leathergoods has been producing weapon holsters for nearly 50 years. Founded by Don Hume in Miami (looks like Miami, but is actually pronounced like my-am-a), Oklahoma; Hume started out producing law enforcement gear.

Mr. Hume started his career in law enforcement, and quickly realized that there was definite need for high quality, affordable duty gear. He started fulfilling that need, and Don Hume Leathergear was born. In the beginning, the company consisted of Mr. Hume and 2 others, but it quickly grew in size. As the company grew, in addition to LE gear, Mr. Hume also saw a need for off duty and concealed carry gear. Some of his original CCW designs are still sold at Don Hume today (like the Double Nine model).

Today, Don Hume offers a wide range of holsters that covers the following areas:

  • Law enforcement
  • Military
  • Concealment
  • General range use

The law enforcement line covers all security levels (Level 1, Level II, and Level III) and Hume also produces matching LE belts, mag carriers, etc. Predominately working in leather, Don Hume has added nylon holsters and duty gear within the last 5 years. For a number of years, Hume only produced concealed carry and range holsters in a saddle brown colored leather, but, in 2007; they started offering most every holster in their line in a black leather color as well.

Like their competition (Galco, DeSantis), Hume is a production company that makes holsters on a production line. By operating in this manner, Hume can produce very nice holsters at very affordable prices. Personally, I feel that they are a great value for the money. In 2007, Don Hume was acquired by Oklahoma Leather and is still based in it's original location.

Don Hume's most popular holster models are the inside the waistband clip-on model (H715M W/C) and the JIT Slide (stands for Just In Time). With both selling for under $30.00, these are both a great value. I've got a number of JIT's and H715M's for various weapons and haven't been disappointed yet.
