Last week I got a Don Hume IWB holster for my Charter Arms .357 "Pug". Spent the weekend carrying it.

All I can say is-WOW!!- what a difference. I have always had pancake style holsters for my semi-autos. I wanted a summer carry gun and bought a Charter Arms "Pug" in .357/.38. I wanted a holster that I could wear with shorts and mt 1/75 inch wide Don Hume belt.

I was told about a website www.gunnersalley.com and that they had great prices on Don Hume leather. I have bought Don Hume in the past, direct, but I hated the shipping costs.

I got a IWB holster, H715M, from them. Although the holster was not in stock and had to be shipped from Don Hume, I was only charged what Gunner's Alley charges for shipping, which is a flat $6.00 The holster + shipping came to $36.

I have worn it all weekend, including a 3 hour stint at a car dealership to buy a new car on Saturday. I worn is all day on Saturday, for about 12 hours and never once did it bother me.

I can now carry, with complete confidance, the Charter Arms "Pug" and the Don Hume IWB hoslter.

I notice that they specify a different holster for the S&W 442 and 642...which are the same guns, dimensionally.

Any idea why that is? I need a good easy-on, easy-off holster for the 442......

If you are looking at the H715M holster- Gunner's Alley/Don Hume , and you are selecting the Hume weapon model option, I do not see them saying that you need a different holster. They just list all of the S&W models that the H715M is made for...

Did you try to call them? I know that they are there during the day...

I too highly recommend Don Hume Holsters. Best deal around on American made holsters!

You may want to get your self some leather lightning www.mitchrosen.com/product_line/miscellaneous/body_miscellaneous.html if you holster is to tight to draw from.
