    Nice....looks like it might ride a tad too high for me though.

    Which Hume model is that? I have a Hume OWB for my Walther P99's...and it's not that model.

    It's the 721 for the full size USP.

    I have almost identical setup

    In the small world department, I have a stainless H&K USP 45f like yours, and a Don Hume pancake holster for it. My holster is of the older style, when Hume used the "belt tunnel" design rather than the belt loops shown on yours. Your holster is also newer and shinier than mine, which has seen some wear.

    My Hume holster was reasonably priced and works well in concealing a large gun that is difficult to conceal. I mainly use it in the winter under a coat when outside.

    Nothing new abt. the H721 I purchased one 12/05.
    Great service, great price & good quality for the price.
    HOWEVER-- using a 11/2" gun belt it pulls in tight to the body and conceals my glock great --- I just can't get the gun out of it, short of a two handed pull. I am going to try the Gary Brommeland method(I have a max-com V on order) wrap the gun in wax paper(maybe 1000 sheets) and leave it in the holster over night or until hell freezes over. I wore the holster 2 or 3 Times in a year. I know I'm new to concealed carry, but I can't be missing that much, but if I am I'm sure someone will let me know.

    Mine is snug, but nowhere near "too tight." It doesn't seem to need any break-in time at all.

    My dad has a brand new Milt Sparks NLG for his SIG 226 and it is much, much tighter (albeit, of much thicker leather, as well).
