I have always been a Kydex guy. I don't know why but I have just never really been drawn to Leather holsters.
Last Saturday while working at the range, I was looking through some of the holsters that have come in recently and noticed we had a pretty good selection of Don Hume leather holsters. I saw one in particular that kind of caught my eye. It was for my Glock 23, the model of the holster was the 711 O.T. (open Top) and it was in black. The holster was highly boned and looked like it would fit my gun perfectly. It was $58.00 but with my employee discount I would end paying about $35.00. I know, how can I go wrong right but, as I said, I have never been a leather guy. But, I just couldn't stop going over and looking at that holster. I must have gone over and looked at it 7 or 8 times.
Finally I just took it to the register and bought it.
I have been wearing it for 4 days now and I have to admit, it is pretty comfortable but, while it holds the gun pretty securely, not a securely as my Blackhawk SERPA holster. And it really isn't any more comfortable than the SERPA. So I am still at a bit of a loss as to understand why some people think leather is the only way to go.
I only wear this holster around the house, I don't think I will ever wear anything out to carry in public that isn't made of Kydex. But, that's just me.
Here is a link to the Don Hume page that shows my holster. Mine is black, not brown as shown on the web page.
