    Reasonably priced canted IWB with snaps?

    I'm looking, basically, for this with a forward cant.

    h715msoot_MED.jpg

    Any ideas?

    The image is of the Don Hume H715-M.S.O. I was using the clip-on variant of this model (H715-M W.C.), and it did not turn out to be as secure as I wanted.

    Thanks, the Canute looks like what I have in mind, BUT: it's twice as much as the Don Hume example. Why is that? Are Don Humes really not as good? I have to say that I've never really noticed anyone mention how great Don Humes are in a holster-recommendation thread. I can't speak to their long-term quality, but the three I've purchased from them seem well-made and the turnaround time is really fast (if they have it in stock).

    Well, all I can say is Nate does all of his own work by hand (if you will), and I've been extremely pleased with the quality his work and turn-around time. But like any good holster-maker, you will pay (and possibly wait) for quality.

    You ask a question and got an answer...then you want to debate the reply and justify your current expenditures on the product you have in hand...

    "and it did not turn out to be as secure as I wanted." Was your statement...

    You get what you pay for and a mass producer is not a custom producer. If you like your current product and think its the best for the money why look elsewhere let alone ask for options?

    Sounds like the guy is trying to learn. Sounded more to me like he was asking questions, not so much debating. He may not be as knowledgeable or experienced as the "Senior Members." Is it really that hard to help instead of challenge? Has he hurt you or your sensibilities in some way? For what it's worth, I am from TN as well and that just ain't Southern Hospitality.

    Really, jem, lay off the guy.

    He wants the best holster he can afford. And who can blame him?

    And Ishmael, one you may want to look at is the Sideguard Minimal Snap. It looks about like what you're after, and the can't is available from 0-15 degrees. I costs $35, and I've heard no complaints about Sideguard's quality.

    You didn't say what gun you need the holster for, but if you search EBay using the terms "ultimate iwb holster", you will find AKJ/Concealco's value line holster. It uses two loops, has adjustable cant and is ambidextrous. It is very concealable, comfortable, and secure. I have several of them and think they are great. I have used the Don Hume you pictured, and it too is a very good holster, but only available in straight drop.

    Cool

    Not really inexpensive but well worth the price. High Noon Downunder.

    Less expensive but with a clip. Clip holds very well. I have three for various guns.

    Ishmael, I have used Don Hume products over the years and they are "serviceable". If that is your price range you will most likely not do better as to overall quality. When you go to custom makers you get better fit, comfort and aesthetics such as edge finish, stitching, fastener/loop quality, leather finish and color consistency. The big difference is you get a holster that fits "you" better to the point its almost forgotten. All these items have a value...

    I have listed a maker that I started getting holsters from several years ago. "I" believe his select grades are the best for the "money" as to comfort, conceal ability and quality I have owned and I have some very nice holsters from various makers that cost more.

    He does real nice work, and the cant might be what you are looking for.

    jem,

    That is essentially the same holster I recommended to the OP. Since he seemed concerned about cost, I suggested the "Value Line" which ,for now, is available only through EBay. I have some of each "Value Line" and "Select". The "Select" holsters are definitely prettier and may have more detailed boning, but both are very serviceable.
