    High Noon Holsters IWB going to be too thick?

    I've got myself looking at ordering one of the Down Under IWB holsters from High Noon.. But I'm questioning if it will be too thick in conjunction with an acceptable but not so tthin Glock 26.

    Anyone have experience with this brand Holster? They seem to be pretty popular.

    High Noon holsters do not work for me, but everyone is different. Check out TT Gunleather.

    We can help out here. The holster is as thick as the design intention ( job ) its going to do. What is the job at hand? Please answer these questions.

    Is One handed reholstering important?
    Taking it to a gun class?
    Do you like to practicein front of a mirror?
    Do you like the holster to be as thin and comfortable as possible?
    If you draw the gun in a confrontation, is getting the gun back in the holster important?

    You can with the correct colthes and carry position conceal many guns. the 26,27 is not that fat compared to many other guns.

    !!!!!!!!

    I've just been sold on High Noon right there, the fact that a company listens and responds to customers/future buyers on a forum..


    Here are a few things I'm looking for,

    - A quality made in America leather holster
    - Something that is form fitting to the gun
    - I prefer a holster with a little forward cant hence the interest in the Down Under over a few other models with similar design
    - I prefer to wear in the 3 to 4 O'Clock position right handed
    - I like clips over belt straps
    - A design that extends the whole length of the slide to increase comfort
    - I wouldn't necessarily say I am too concerned about the reholstering ability but I'm sure it would be nice.

    Thats an easy one, done
    - Something that is form fitting to the gun
    Form fitted brings us to the thicker leather
    - I prefer a holster with a little forward cant hence the interest in the Down Under over a few other models with similar design
    Yes The DU is a good choice
    - I prefer to wear in the 3 to 4 O'Clock position right handed
    The DU does well in that position
    - I like clips over belt straps
    The DU come in a clip
    - A design that extends the whole length of the slide to increase comfort
    Everyone of our holsters are designed that way( except the Slider, a dealer item for sure)
    - I wouldn't necessarily say I am too concerned about the reholstering ability but I'm sure it would be nice.
    With what you have said up top the Down Under is the way to go. I would not worry about the leather thickness,
    it not too thick, just thick enough to get one handed reholstering and a nice wet mold to the gun.

    Hope that helps

    I have an Alter Ego I carry my Glock 36 in. I haven't found the holster thickness to be an issue. It isn't as thin as their stocking item holsters, but those don't offer one handed reholstering. IMO, it is worth the extra cash for their top of the line stuff if you are going to be using it every day. That being said, I have several stocking item holsters, because I like to have a holster for every handgun. So something like a Bare Asset for my rarely carried Bersa .380 makes more sense than either a cheap $10 nylon one, or an $80 leather one. It is functional, but doesn't break the bank.

    A word of advice, once you figure out how you like the tension screw, put some loc-tite on it. I have two of their holsters I have lost the retention screws on because I have failed to do so. They aren't that expensive to replace at a couple bucks a pop, but, a dab of loc-tite prevents that. I actually need to order some replacements for the lost ones, but am waiting until I order a new holster to not have to pay shipping for just some screws.

    +1 on the High Noon holsters. I had their IWB tuckable (Split Decision IIRC) for a Bersa Thunder .45 and found it to be a great holster.

    Nail polish will work in a pinch also. I know most everyone has that around the house, plus a whole lotta shoes, LOL.
