    For you High Noon gurus

    I know a fair number of folks on here (myself included), are fans of High Noon. However, all of the holsters I have from them came from their stocking item line. I am wanting to get a tuckable IWB for my Glock 36. From those of you who have experience with both the stocking items, and production items, are the production ones worth the extra money? I don't need a pretty holster, I need one that works.

    The three options I am considering are the Hidden Ally, Hidden Impact, and the Alter Ego. The main advantage I see to the Alter Ego is that it has a reinforced opening, which is nice, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money. Aside from that option, is there any reason not to go with the Hidden Ally (stocking item) version?

    Any thoughts or comments?

    I got to say yes, they are worth the extra cash. The materials are better ( not just in a pretty way) and the craftsmanship is just about as good as it gets. Which, in turn makes a nice servicable holster. Don't forget, they have a liberal (in this case, thats good) return/exchange policy if you're not happy.

    Ok, do you think that the reinforced opening if worth the $30 difference between the Hidden Ally and the Alter Ego? Because that is the main difference I see, and a slide guard?

    I am trying to get this decided this week, cause then it would meet me when I get back home.

    I think both features make a positive difference, but thats one of those personal preference things.

    One of our newest FAQ's

    What's the difference between your thin Inside the waist band holsters and your Thicker inside waist band holsters and why the huge price difference between them?
    Questions

    They are worth the money if thats the job you have for the gun to do. Many people do not need all the bells and whistles. It all comes down to the task at hand. When I bought my Dodge Ram I did not get the Hemi Engine cause I knew I would never need it outside of bragging rights, LOL.

    I need to stop buying new guns, because that means I need holsters for each of them. I am wanting to utilize my 36 for a deeper concealment role, so that when I can't dress around my 1911, I can still have a .45. I think that the reinforced mouth might be worth it, just gotta talk myself into ponying up for it.

    Let's see what everyone else thinks?

    I think a High Noon guru has spoken.

    I was just going to edit my last post to add that High Noon guys are personable and easy to deal with. Fire an email or phone call, they'll talk to ya.

    And whatta ya know, Justin replies within a few minutes here. Outstanding.

    A mouth ain't worth much without some reinforcements.

    Honestly Justin, I don't use the FAQ page on your guy's website, I don't find it very appealing to look at, something about the background, and the plethora of colors.

    But thank you for the link. I'll be ordering from High Noon in the near future.

    Everybody is up tonight, LOL , lOL. Yes that pages colors bothers some people, but we have so many questions up there. We do not mind answering questions, who wants to go thu 130 questions to get one answered, I would not.

    Try the holster if you hate it just return it, you should get both run them side by side to see what you want.

    I just did an extensive review on the Alter Ego and Hideaway. Yes, it's definitely worth the extra money for a Public Secret or Alter Ego, without a doubt. The reinforced opening is just part of it, the sight track is another good reason. Check out my reviews Handgun World Podcast

    I don't think I will do that, having two holsters made and shipped, knowing one would get sent back, isn't the way I try to do things. But, customer service and your return policy is one of the reasons I use you guys for most of my holster needs.

    Decisions, decisions...

    Cool

    For me a re-enforced holster mouth and slide guard are definately worth the extra money. I use Public Secrets carried appendix.

    The reinforced mouth probably isn't as big a deal unless you routinely have to go into pistol free zones. Then I can see where it makes reholstering easier and safer. I think that if possible though I would still prefer to loosen my belt before reholstering with a revolver or DAK auto.
    I can see where the slide guard would be really nice though. I have another holster from another site supporter and I did order it with the slide guard and appreciate the extra comfort it provides. The next time I order a High Noon, I'll probably go with a Tail Gate, to gain the slide guard.

    I think I will do something nice for myself, and go with the Alter Ego. Which will probably make me want to go back and replace all my other holsters with High Noon's nicer stuff, instead of the stocking item line (which is perfectly nice too). Come on payday Friday.

    Thank you all for the input
