    Feedback on a Don Hume 715 - SOOT IWB

    There are times I want to carry my J frame Airweight IWB, (normally I pocket carry it), but I don't want to spend a lot; I came across this holster on Gunner's Alley and thought it looked like it would be thin (that would be good) and I like that it snaps on. The price is outstanding but I do believe you normally get what you pay for. So do any of you have this holster? If you've used it for a while can you tell me how thick/thin it is and how well you think it would work with a little J frame? Would appreciate the feedback.

    Thanks and God Bless

    This is a good basic IWB holster that I also use for my SW 638. Cant go wrong with it.

    I am wanting to order the 721OT for my P232, Don Hume's are such a good value for the money it is hard to find them in stock anywhere.

    I had one for a while for my 342 snubby and it was a good holster. Then I decided that I did not need a IWB for a snubby and switched to a Don Hume JIT Slide. Don Hume makes a decent product at a reasonable price.

    However, I did try a JIT for a Glock 29 and the holster was really not sturdy enough for the larger, heavier gun.

    Actually the Hume 715 isnt a bad little holster, especially for the money..just make sure you break it in ALOT! They are notoriously tight....

    Eric, have you ever considered making a holster for the J frame? I always imagined that the perfect holster for it would be somewhat like Andrews Custom Leather's "MacDaniel" holster only quite thin. That way you could set the cant on it, and with the off set single belt loop you'd have very little between the gun and the belt. I tried to find something like that but couldn't. The ones I did find seemed like very thick leather which you might need for a full size 1911 but not for a lightweight like my airweight S&W.

    I know most people pocket carry them but I really like it IWB. Anywas, take a look at the MacDaniel and let me/us know if you could make something like that. You can PM me if you'd like

    Thanks and God Bless

    I purchased a 715 from Gunner's Alley for use with my Glock 27,while I wait for my Max-Con V. I wore it once and my butt heavy Glock kept summersaulting over my belt. It may work just fine with a J Frame - but it screams "no heavy butts please"- Feel free to fill in your own jokes. I have a Don Hume 721from Gunner's Alley and it is a fine holster - after I broke it in.

    Just ordered a 721 Open Top from Don Hume, it should be here later today. How do you like it and what was your break in procedure?

    It is a great holster for the $. Holds the gun close and secure I wrapped my Glock27 in several layers of wax paper and let it sit overnight. This process was repeated several times each time adding an additional layer of wax paper. I finally ended up getting a bottle of Leather lightning from Mitch Rosen
    Gunleather, abt $12.00. That worked.You may do ok with just the wax paper. Good luck.

    The 715 was my default holster for years. I would get a gun, call a holster maker and call Humme. The 715 would arrive in a couple of days and would carry the gun until the other holster came in.

    Since I am buying UBG leather now, it isn't an issue. But, as his lead time increases, I will resume the practice.
