    It looks like I will be in the minority here but...um this thing is worth nowhere near $30! I bought one used (appeared new) for my M&P for $15 and after seeing it in person would never ever pay more then that for it.

    They look much better in pictures then they really are. They are just a very thin leather versions of the Uncle Mike's IWB cloth pouch holsters. I've had both and would pay the $10 for an Uncle Mike's again but no way would I pay $30 for the High Noon.

    A huge step up in materials and overall quality would be a DeSantis or Don Hume! For only a couple dollars more the difference is night and day!

    High Noon holsters are great! My wife has a Bare Asset for her G26 and that's all she uses. I have a Hidden Ally for my G27.

    If I wanted an inexpensive but decent leather holster I would go Don Hume available direct or Gunners Alley or Top Gun Supply.
    Three times to many for us. In an effort to improve High Noon, could you tell us what you bought and why you were dissatisfied. Please be specific as you can. Sometimes, the best ideas come from dissatisfied customers.

    The perfect holster does not exist, most times it’s not the holster that uncomfortable, it’s the chunk of metal/polymer that you are trying to carry that’s the problem. Don’t believe us? Just wear the holster with no gun in it, most will have no problem. Now put the gun in there and it’s a different story. What needs to happen is you need to give your body a chance adapt. It could also be the position you had it in, sometimes changing the position by a few inches helps.

    I think some people have unrealistic expectations of holster comfort due to all the reviews....a guy gets a new rig...says he loves the way it looks...says it disappears under a t-shirt..then goes on to say it's so comfortable he can't feel it....I guess that may be true for the 5 minutes it takes to stand in front of your bathroom mirror as you take a picture for the rest of us to see...but in the real world, carrying 8-12 hours a day, you will feel the gun...especially IWB...no matter what kind of holster you use...:)

    I tried several positions with the holster and none were comfortable. I carried a Firestorm 380 with the Split Decision. After selling that combo I purchased a full size 1911 with a Supertuck and had no problems.

    I would not buy a single clip point holster again. Regardless of the company I do not think it is a right choice for me YMMV.

    Especially if it is a heavier type of gun like a 1911 or full size polymer.

    We are glad you found something that worked for you. You did change from a super thin holster to a thick holster. The much thicker leather combined with the sweat shield will give you a nice buffer from the gun. Kind of acts like a pillow between you and the gun. We sell many styles with those features. Unfortunately, the Split Decision is so thin, you get very little buffer, but that was not the design intention of that holster. Hopefully you used our 30 day policy Guarantee

    Sometimes it takes the nerves in your body to adapt to a foreign objects pressure,I have a spinal cord injury and at one time my nerves were ultra sensitive,if you touched me in some places It felt like a jolt of electricity,sometimes wearing a holster for short periods and then increasing length of time will get your body use to it.As far as price goes,with materials,labor,overhead it's one of the less expensive carry options,I got a bare asset for my P11

    Alex do these holsters remain open with the gun withdrawn, or do they collapse?

    The leather is to thin to support, one handed reholstering. So yes they do collapse.

    We find ourselves reaching for these holsters allot. Depending on what you are wearing for the day (dress clothes are a killer), some clothes are just cut tight or maybe we have put on a few pounds. Throw in the weather factor and the days activities, there are times when they are the smartest choice. Everyone should have one of these in their holster wardrobe. Its gets the job done in a simple way.

    For those who are not familiar with these in our line here they are.

    Same here..I have lots of high end leather from Alessi, Delfatti and Lobo, but often, this simple clip-on is best for a quick grab and go...and although it is a single contact point rig, if you wear a decent belt, the holster will stay put in your pants...a good belt is key to any holster working well....

    hey everybody, Since the leather is very thin and soft, should i be worried about an accidental discharge?
