J-Frame IWB Help Needed
Hello fellow CCWers. Happy Independence Day! I carry a G19 or G30 every day in an MTAC. I also have a 642 that I carry on occasion. I have OWB and pocket holsters for the 642 but would like to get an IWB holster for t-shirt carry. My Glocks are just too big for this most of the time so I use button up shirts with them. I have read past threads on this and here are my thoughts:
1. I want something that can be worn under a t-shirt only and not print too excessively. For this reason thin is in!
2. Reinforced mouth is not mandatory as I put the gun and holster on as a unit and reholstering will not be a big issue with a gun this size.
3. I have a few picked out. Comments and experiences on these are welcome as well as other options to consider.
High Noon Mr. Softy Soft, pretty simple design.
Don Hume 715-M - Thinner leather, which is good IMO.
Dillon/Maverick Tuckaway - Not a big fan of nylon, but it looks like deep concealment and might be comfortable.
I also had the CTAC on the list but it has been removed due to it being a little more bulky.
So let's hear it! :danceban:
I have a Canute, and a Nassar from UBG. They're both nice holsters, but I like my High Noon Slide Guard OWB the best for T shirts. I'm tall with some beer gut, and it hides great a little in front of my hip.
The Canute IWB snap loop works great with an unbuttoned suit coat, and the Nassar clip on is for when I know I will have to take it off.
I think OWB tucks in tight to the body, but no cylinder grinding on my hip.
I'm starting to lean away from the High Noon and more toward the Don Hume. No more than the Dillon holster is ($15) I might just get both and see which one I like the best. All opinions still welcome of course.
I've used the Don Hume #715, no complaints.
I still reccomend the The Crossbreed Supertuck..I carry a sp 101 daily and printing is not an issue even with a tanktop
The IWB's I was debating on for my 442 were -
Little Feather Leather LFL-110
After talking with Lou Alessi I went with the APX that I hope I should have soon. It has a slight reverse cant that I like for AIWB. I also like his Talon clip so I won't need a belt for such a light J Frame. Lou is currently quoting 20 weeks, I'll review it when I get it
Went ahead and ordered the Hume from Red Diamond for $26.99. Worth a shot I figure.

Thanks for the input everyone! I've got a couple Hume products and for the money the quality is very nice.
